Red Cross: Mexico Abuses Illegal Aliens

 

 

Mexico is once again caught red-handed.

 

 

CBN News reports that the Red Cross says the Mexican government is engaged in open hypocrisy: demanding the U.S. open its borders and its wallet to every government service while Mexican officials continue to abuse those entering Mexico illegally and deny the most basic human rights to any.

 

MEXICO CITY, Mexico - For the past month, America's attention has been focused on the Middle East war. During that time, another 300,000 illegal aliens have crossed America's border with Mexico. But you won't believe how Mexico treats its illegal aliens.

 

Illegal aliens from Mexico were allowed to march through America's cities, demanding citizenship – some even waved the Mexican flag. But illegal aliens inside Mexico, mostly from Guatemala and Honduras, are literally on the run.

 

The Mexican constitution provides for stiff penalties for illegal aliens caught entering or living in Mexico. But beyond that, CBN News shows how the Red Cross is trying to expose “unofficial” abuses committed by Mexican police and immigration officials against aliens. Such abuses include bribery, robbery, assault, kidnapping, rape, and murder. Where is Human Rights Watch or Amnesty International? Once again, we find them strangely absent.

 

The Mexican government was outraged by the movement to build a new wall on America's southern border. Mexico's Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez went before the cameras to protest.

 

But in Mexico, when it comes to the treatment of its illegal aliens it's, ‘Do as I say, not as I do.’

 

…Mexico has called U.S. immigration policy "harsh," and has called the proposed wall on the U.S. Mexico border "shameful." But some have called the Mexican immigration policy "hypocritical."

 

Enter Mexico illegally and you're treated as a felon. If you're caught by the Federal Police, you'll be fortunate if you're only deported immediately. The unfortunate are robbed, abused, raped, or even murdered by corrupt police officers.

 

 

Yet the government of Mexico as yet remains unchallenged even by the same Catholic Church quick to criticize the U.S. for alleged shortcomings. Although the Catholic Church in Mexico does shield illegal aliens from being found out, it refuses to publicly criticize the government in Mexico City as it does the one in Washington, D.C.

 

Fernando Aguilar Neri coordinates Red Cross efforts to help illegal aliens in Mexico.

 

“When people approach us, they are usually fearful that we work with the government and are afraid of being reported,” said Neri. “…One of the seven principles of the Red Cross is complete neutrality and independence, so we can't cooperate with the Mexican government on the illegal alien issue.”

 

 

 

Mexico doesn’t make it easy on naturalized citizens either: according to its own constitution, those immigrating to Mexico and becoming naturalized will never have the right to vote or take part in the political process. Also, anyone wishing to be naturalized or otherwise live in Mexico who was not born there to Mexican parents must prove he will be able to cover his own healthcare, pay for any liabilities incurred, and otherwise be financially solvent without taking jobs away from locals.

 

The Center for Security Policy bullets a few of the provisions which, were they law in the United States, would even a very unfair immigration playing field at present:

 

Immigrants and foreign visitors are banned from public political discourse.

 

Immigrants and foreigners are denied certain basic property rights.

 

Immigrants are denied equal employment rights.

 

Immigrants and naturalized citizens will never be treated as real Mexican citizens.

 

Immigrants and naturalized citizens are not to be trusted in public service.

 

Immigrants and naturalized citizens may never become members of the clergy.

 

Private citizens may make citizens arrests of lawbreakers (i.e., illegal immigrants)

and hand them to the authorities.

 

Immigrants may be expelled from Mexico for any reason and without due process.

Sneaking into Mexico of course is a punishable felony, which immediately disqualifies the offender from ever being able to obtain citizenship. To further add to the risks for illegal aliens, Mexican border guards are permitted to shoot on site illegals caught trying to enter the country, and do so without regard for age, gender, race, nationality, refugee or health status.

 

About 10 percent of Mexico's population is now living in the United States, that’s over 10 million people. And how many illegal aliens in its own country has Mexico legalized in the past five years? Just 15,000.

 

The Mexican government may think a new wall on the U.S. border is offensive, but critics are saying far worse things about Mexico's immigration policy.

Mayor G.

 

 

Recently, former Mayor and presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani was speaking at an NRA convention when he got a rather unexpected phone call from hid peeps in da crib.

 

 

Sociologists concur however that such phone calls are generally staged for "creds" when one is lacking emotional comfort and security...

China and Russia Spying at Cold War Levels

 

 

Blogbat said this was so over a year ago; now Director of National Intelligence Michael McConnell confirms it yet again.

 

According to the AFP, in his written testimony today before the House, McConnell stated that, “US undercover agencies must simultaneously battle traditional state foes and Al-Qaeda, as it tries to infiltrate US territory to pull off spectacular terrorist attacks.” Video courtesy leelin:

  

 

That AFP report also reminds us that, “In July, FBI Director Robert Mueller told Congress that China's espionage operations were a ‘substantial concern’ and Beijing was stealing US secrets to boost its fast developing military and economy.”

 

BLOGBAT RELATED: The GRU more than made up the difference in the 1990s

 

BLOGBAT VIDEO: "Chatter" last year stated explicitly that Russian Intel had reached Cold War levels.

Chinese Embassies Directing Student-Operatives

 

 

The Chinese Consulates and embassies have caught sending letters to Chinese students in the U.S. to write the United States Senate and House of Representatives on behalf of the Communist Chinese government, but is this where such illegal activity ends? Not even close.

  

Video courtesy of leelin 

 

As with any agent, only those students who are considered “trustworthy” by the Communist regime to remain loyal are permitted to study abroad amidst the influences of the non-Communist world. In addition to years and years of political indoctrination, students are selected after intense political and social scrutiny, which includes a thorough background investigation into their family, friends, psychological and emotional profile, religious connections, and anything else which might indicate political disloyalty to the extremist dictatorship.  

 

Students in fact are an important part of the Chinese strategy for collecting information and affecting policy in the  countries in which they are attending school. As the story explains, these students are being used to unlawfully influence the policies of a foreign government by directly petitioning it (a strategy that other countries like Mexico also use). Chinese students also await orders to carry out other political operations where they live, including assisting direct leftwing political activity and in projects which may indirectly assist leftwing goals, such as participation in gang-related criminal activity.

 

 In addition to the use of Chinese students as political change-agents, another example is the well-known use by the Communist government of graduate students for gaining access to various open-source R&D linked to classified technology from various angles sufficient to outline and define the purpose and type of classified technology under development (and whether it warrants deeper penetration).

 

A key player in all of this is the Chinese Students and Scholars Friendship Association, considered by many a front group in propagating and maintaining CCP control over its foreign students.   

 

Another purpose of these networks is to export repression of Chinese ex-pats and exact revenge on dissidents, many of whom are under constant threat of deadly reprisals that often include among the victims any family members.

 

One article in 2005 points to information provided by defectors that further raised alarms:

 

A large network of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) spies is rampant in the U.S., say members of Congress, Ivy League academics, and two defecting CCP officials.

 

The spies aim not only to steal military and technology secrets but also to influence, repress, and even control the ideals and actions of Americans.

 

In defecting in Australia early in June, CCP officials Mr. Hao Fengiun and Mr. Chen Yonglin sparked a string of headlines, first in Australia then in Canada, about a massive network of CCP spies in Western countries that could far exceed previously held estimates of the problem.

 

 

The article goes on to detail three areas of CCP spy influence.

 

This month’s incident of the (most recent) Clinton fundraising fiasco with Chinese operative Hsu is only a tiny pixel in a matrix of a much larger pernicious strategy that uses chiefly students followed by Chinese national “business” leaders to bring to heal what the Communists in China consider their greatest threat, which is also the greatest example of liberty and prosperity and proof of Communist ideological vapidity anywhere on the globe:  The United States. Even if such a strategy were only effective 10% of the time, given the sheer number of Chinese nationals in the United States at present and some of the sensitive positions they hold, there still exists a significant danger. Therefore it is important that we maintain a number of those currently holding Chinese passports that can be effectively monitored and managed and that such nationals not be allowed to act at the behest of their government while here. It should be our desire to offer every foreign student the opportunity to experience all that an American experience can offer, and that includes the freedom to explore new ideas and challenge old, without fear of persecution by their home countries. It also involves protecting that American experience from extinction by a foreign power.

9/11: Moving Forward

 

 

It was an ordinary Tuesday morning like this. On this date six years ago America was rudely awakened. The giant must not return to his slumber.

 

This video is dedicated to everyone who has sacrificed for our country and for its freedom in New York, Washington, DC, over Pennsylvania, in Afghanistan, Iraq, and everywhere else we are fighting the good fight. We should not lose hope or forget our cause; it is just and it is winnable. Indeed, we must win.

 

I produced this video with the desire that we might ruminate just awhile on this:

The Dewey Awards: Lauren Caitlin Upton

 

 

A new semi-regular segment at this blog inspired admittedly by Miss Teen USA's pat public school type answer, we offer this Dewey segment (sounds like horticulture but it’s not!).

 

The Dewey Awards celebrate all that is the American public school system: failure. It takes its name from the beloved father of public schools who once said,

 

The mere absorption of facts and truths is so exclusively an individual affair that it tends very naturally to pass into selfishness. There is no obvious social motive for the acquirement of mere learning, there is no clear social gain in success thereat. (The School and Society, 1899) (Courtesy Education.org)

Hence,

 

I believe that the study of science is educational in so far as it brings out the materials and processes which make social life what it is.

And,

 

I believe that we violate the child's nature and render difficult the best ethical results, by introducing the child too abruptly to a number of special studies, of reading, writing, geography, etc., out of relation to this social life.

 

I believe, therefore, that the true center of correlation on the school subjects is not science, nor literature, nor history, nor geography, but the child's own social activities.

 

So if the primary purpose of attending school is not learning “mere facts”, then the learning of such facts can easily take a back seat to whatever the primary purpose for "U.S. Americans" is, which in John Dewey’s view was that,

 

“You can’t make Socialists out of individualists. Children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming, where everyone is interdependent.” (Courtesy Mensnewsdaily.com)

 

Thus, we arrive today at such pro forma public school-indoctrinated brilliance as demonstrated by South Carolina Miss Teen USA Lauren Caitlin Upton:

 

I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some people out there in our nation don't have maps, and, uh, I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq everywhere like, such as and I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., er, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our children.

 

Upton naturally is our first Dewey Award winner (though we understand that in the public school system of Deweyism winning is frowned upon):

 

 

 

So now, it all makes sense, I believe. With a 3.5 GPA, South Carolina Miss Teen USA represents the best of public education, so her difficulty should serve as no surprise. 1/5 of adults can't find the land of "U.S. Americans" on a map; just wait till they survey her generation. Put a homeschooler up there and get a thoughtful, intelligent answer. ;)

Common Sense Can't Be Faked

 

 

Debbie’s Right Truth blog has something extra-special posted worthy of any reader who desires to become a deep, well-rounded, common sense person. The exclusive piece is by R. J. Godlewski.

 

Here’s a snippet:

 

When ancient mariners had dealt with storms as a fact of life, today we cry “My God! We’ve had two Category Five hurricanes reach landfall in the same season! It must be global warming at work!” It is our ignorance that fails to consider that we haven’t been around nearly as long as it takes to fully understand what is considered normal to nature. In our haste to achieve convenience, we even tend to forget what is considered ‘normal’ for us humans. When our ancestors fought wars that raged for decades, even centuries, and endured millions of casualties to ensure that peace was the ultimate goal, we pull out our trusty political remote and say “I’m bored already. ..."

 

Check out Right Truth for the rest of it. And let it sink in.

WAC Promoting Moral Equivalency on 9/11?

 

 

On September 11, the World Affairs Council will be screening a film some might consider sympathetic to terrorists.

 

The HBO-produced documentary about the Arab-Israeli conflict titled, “To Die in Jerusalem” essentially seems to be another propaganda flick for the cause of moral equivalency; the ostensibly non-partisan World Affairs Council seemingly ready make that cause relevant to Americans by promoting it on the sixth anniversary of 9/11.

 

The movie is billed in the Dallas/Ft. Worth WAV bulletin as a true story which “explores a tragic event which brings the lives of two young girls, a suicide bomber and her one victim, crashing together.” And certainly typical: there is one bomber and one victim. Or is there? Actually there are two victims for the one bomber, but the WAC flyer in an effort to bring out the romance, made it one-for-one (certainly still far fewer than the typical number of civilian victims of various ages of suicide bombers). Also rather interestingly, that “one” victim is almost painted as if she, 17-year-old Rachel Levy, had discovered a new friend in her last few seconds upon this earth and if she could speak to us from beyond today would tell us how happy she was that they met.

 

One cannot with certainty divine the reasoning behind WAC’s choice to show “To Die in Jerusalem” on 9/11 2007, but this tired, disproven belief of moral equivalency and the lies and obfuscations of the real events of history necessary to reach its conclusions have been used in times past, for instance, to justify the Nazis and the Communists of the Soviet Union, China, and elsewhere. Slightly tweaked to encompass current events, that belief essentially says, “these people who blow themselves up (and by extension of context of this film’s showing hijack passenger planes and fly them into buildings) are just the same as their victims,” when in fact they’re not. Interestingly, one need only use his or her search engine and type the film’s title to see the truth: “20 die in Jerusalem bus blast”, and so on. Instead, such wrong appraisals of reality as proffered by moral equivalency and its cruel justification for senseless brutality are what directly led to countless more dying at the hands of such movements of terror.

 

Despite the claims of such who adhere to the uninformed doctrine and even those who believe as Isobel Coleman does that economics explains social stability rather than the other way around, the reality is that until enough Palestinians choose to see the humanity of Israeli civilians and stop teaching their children that Jews are pigs and dogs that drink the blood of Arab children, suicide bombings against civilian targets and other acts of terror will not cease until they have utter annihilated their victims. Put into the deeds of the Hutu Power movement in Rwanda in the 1990s or more directly, the vernacular of Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, wipe their victims off the face of the earth.

 

That the Dallas Ft. Worth World Affairs Council has chosen this date to show such a documentary seems at best like an attempt to soft-pedal the true nature of this tragic canard.
