 Illegal Aliens Induce a Boycott of Arizona

 Sonora – Businessmen and organizations in Sonora and Tamaulipas invoked a boycott of Arizona in support of their countrymen residing in Arizona and called for “A Day Without Mexicans.”  The director of the Camara Nacional de Comercio, (Mexican National Chamber of Commerce), Gustavo Claussen, said that the boycott will be coordinated at the national level.  He said that “A Day Without Mexicans” will be the official name of the boycott and will be a means of rejecting the application of Arizona’s SB-1070 which criminalizes the undocumented.  Claussen clarified that this will be the means to modify or repeal the law.  The states of Sonora and Arizona share around 560 kilometers of border and have supported one another with cultural and commercial interaction for more than 50 years.  “We don’t want to exaggerate, but we will not set one foot into Arizona and we want to demonstrate our firm position that we disagree with this law,” stated Claussen.

 Tamaulipas agrees.

 The President of the Chamber in Reynosa, Ramiro Cienfuegos, stated that all of the members of the Chamber are in agreement and will stand in solidarity with the boycott because their countrymen are victims of discrimination and persecution in the state of Arizona, and should not be punished for only wanting to work.  “We urge our citizens this Thursday not to buy anything in the stores in the United States and to not buy anything made by the Gringos exported into this country,” said Cienfuegos.

 It is significant that 30% of the sales in Arizona are to Mexicans.

 Arizona Governor Jan Brewer banned in Queretaro

 Queretaro, Queretaro – A majority in the city government of Queretaro made the decision to declare Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and all Arizona State legislators “personas non-gratas” in the city of Queretaro and called Felipe Calderón to deny access to the nation of Mexico.  The government of Queretaro rejects Arizona’s SB-1070 as racism and discrimination.  Along with approving the declaration, the city government called upon President Felipe Calderón to declare all government officials of the State of Arizona “personas non-gratas” and ban their entry into the Republic of Mexico.

[One reader’s comment: “What barbarity… now they have to think about repealing the law so they can visit Queretaro.”]

 Editorial

 The United States will give up its drugs?

 Imagine a day in which all the drug users in the United States, in support of Mexico, will give up their addictions.  The economic hit to the cartels would be devastating.  Within a month, the strike against illegal substances would bring criminal enterprises to a halt, incapacitate the illicit traffic in arms, bankrupt dealers, end the employment of henchmen and end the bribery of public officials.  All that is impossible, but this utopia that I have shown you, serves to point out that the nail in the coffin of the demand for drugs is what it will take to eradicate narcotics trafficking.

 Meanwhile drugs continue to be illegal, and if the demand doesn’t drop, the continuing crime results in miles of dead bodies.  Not only Mexico, but Colombia and the United States itself, for the past 30 years, have accomplished nothing in “The War on Drugs.”

 Since the time President Nixon declared this fateful war, we have spent millions for police programs, arms, armored vehicles, customs regulations and other programs all aimed toward reducing the demand for drugs.  The Results? Failure to reduce drug consumption and the exponential increase in violence.

 Mathea Falco, assistant to ex-President Clinton, begged The White House to change its paradigm.  Lamentably, she didn’t win that reasonable debate and it (The White House) failed to pay attention to effective arguments.

 But it is better late than never.  Today, it finally looks like Barack Obama has taken the lead.  The Drug Czar of that nation, Gil Kerlikowske, recognizes the inefficiency of anti-drug politics. He is attacking the consumption of drugs and that is the indispensible solution to the travesty of drug use.

 The plan of the Obama Administration basically is to reduce drug consumption by 15% among young people within the next 5 years, and to reduce overall consumption and drug deaths.  This is the action recommended by experts.  Very well.  If this doesn’t work, he doesn’t have any option left but to look toward legalization of drugs.  This is not foolishness, but the natural course that the public officials have when they analyze it in terms of efficiency.

    We do what ever possible to make illegal aliens and employers of illegal aliens lives a living nightmare.

  2. David Says:

    I must say that definitly I am really impressed with this blog.It is clearly seen that you are impassioned to write. I wish I had got your ability to write. I look forward to next post and will come back again.

  3. norm9do Says:

    Mexico’s government officials should be more concerned that they would not be allowed into Arizona.
    How absoultely inmature and childish they must be to even think of this!

    It plainly shows that they are governed by raw emotion rather than reason and logic. It is no wonder why the country in in the state of affairs it currently is….

  4. Hawkeye Says:

    Follow the money. The only reason Mexican politicians are reacting to Arizona’s laudable SB 1070 is because they fear losing out on their second highest source of national income, after oil exports. With 10% of their citizens abroad, they also fear deported illegal aliens would add to their already high unemployment population. And, illegal aliens are also less inclined to be pacified in their home country. These returnees could present a vocal and potentially a thorn in their side they rather not deal with.

    Will you cross your heart on that? And will you also promise that all crooked politicians and illegal aliens won’t set foot in any part of this country every again?

  7. Donald Hammers Says:

    If this is Mexico’s best shot, what is stopping the other border states for passing a similar law? From the looks of this boycott, The Mexican government still has the idea that their illegal workers are “just doing the work that Americans won’t do.” They don’t understand that we really don’t need them. They are only making themselves obsolete with a boycott. American businesses including agriculture will survive this boycott. Additionally, ALL the illegal border traffic should be stopped by the Mexicans themselves. Wasn’t that the main impetus behind SB-1070?

  8. Bonnie Says:

    Mexico can kizz my dog’s culo!

  9. Sue Santoni Says:

    I am continuing to shake my head at the Mexican politicians. Blowing smoke at the U.S. to cover up the crap that goes on in Mexico. Why do they not mention that it is illegal to visit or be a foreign resident of Mexico without carrying one’s passport at all times? Why is the Arizona law so bad? I divide my residency between Mexico and Texas and I don’t want to see a law like this passed in Texas. But I’m not going to get caught in Mexico without my FM3 or US passport on me at all times. The police brutality in Mexico is a thousand times worse than in the U.S.

  10. John Cryar Says:

    I find it quite humorous that Mexico complains loudly about SB 1070, yet remains mute concerning their own “immigration laws”. It makes me wonder what they would do if the United States went to a system where all our laws were reciprocal to each country’s laws, (No immigrant can demonstrate, vote or buy property in Mexico. Getting a job takes a lot more than just asking for one.).

  11. TaterSalad Says:

    The Obama administration won’t get this illegal immigration problem corrected, healthcare, cap & trade, Goldman & Sachs (6 of them in the White House now) and taking his sweet ole’ time on Katrina II.

    The United States ought to treat Mexico the same as they treat us as immigrants and everyone of these liberal whine-o’s would then be singing a different tune to this illegal immigration thing and here is why:

  12. Mario Says:

    I think that Obama is forgetting that we live in a free country and we have the right to take all the drugs that we feel like. To hell with Mexico.

  13. M. FREEMAN Says:

    A GOVERNOR WITH A SPINE THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR BEING A TRUE AMERICAN WHY OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS SO AFFRAID TO INTIMIDATE THESE MEXICAN ILLEGALS DO NOT LET THEM INTIMDATE YOU AS YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING AS THEY ARE BREAKING OUR LAWS.
