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.

It's a double standard for sure. Another thing, there is an underground system to move South/Central Americans through Mexico and across the US border into the US. This starts with places like Venezuela and surrounding countries, where people arrive by boat/plane, get fake documents (for a price), and eventually wind up in the US. This is the perfect path for terrorists.

Especially with Venezuela in the mix. Halloooo, George W.... anyone in there??? lol Thomas Paine wrote a great book called "Common Sense" once. What a novel concept that would be for Washington.

Martin,
first time visitor. Good post, I'm sure this does not end with the immigration policies of Mexico, probably all of Central America and below. What I don't understand is the stance that the polititians in Washington and the individual states place on Illegals. What do not they understand. The rule of law is the rule of law and breaking of the law is wrong and should not obligate me to pay for their illegality. stay well
