In My Opinion ... by Ron Phillips
In May 22 Issue
Russell County News

Three cheers for Arizona!  One of my readers forwarded this e-mail to me today and I not only found it interesting, but somewhat humorous.  It was titled, “MEXICO IS ANGRY!” and here’s how it read…


The shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from the State of Sonora, Mexico don't like it. The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico.  Nine state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona's new employer crackdown on illegal’s from Mexico.  It seems that many Mexican illegals are returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state government are ticked off.  A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to state that Arizona’s new Employer Sanctions Law will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state.  At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora, - Arizona's southern neighbor, - made up of mostly small towns, - cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools that it will face as Mexican workers return to their hometowns from the USA without jobs or money. The Arizona law, which took effect Jan. 1, punishes Arizona employers who knowingly hire individuals without valid legal documents to work in the United States. Penalties include suspension of, or loss of, their business license. The Mexican legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their hometowns, placing a burden on THEIR state government. “How can Arizona pass a law like this?” asked Mexican Rep Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales.. “There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona,” she said, speaking in Spanish. “Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and who were sending money to their families return to their home-towns in Sonora without jobs,' she said. 'We are one family, socially and economically,' she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona.  Listed below are the New Immigration Laws:

1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.

2. All ballots will be in this nation's language.3. All government business will be conducted in our language.4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office6 Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs. Any burden will be deported.7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.8. If foreigners come here and buy land... options will be restricted. Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.9. Foreigners may have no protests; no demonstrations, no waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies. These will lead to deportation.10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted and when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets will be taken from you.


Too strict?  The above laws are current immigration laws of MEXICO!  Our country for some time now has chosen politically correctness over common since.  We have been letting the tail wag the dog entirely too long.  It very clear from the surveys that have been taken that the majority of the Americans polled have had enough. We too are “ANGRY”.  It’s time for the bleeding hearts that are supporting illegal immigration to follow the rules.  As a nation, we have always welcomed immigrants through the front door. 

It’s time to shut the back door unless it is being used as an exit! As always, I appreciated all of the support and feedback I receive from my readers.
