Of particular interest to me is this part of the article, talking to "Article 67 of Mexico's Population Law"
Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal ... are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues.The article goes on to say the Interior Department acknowledges the problems and notes that the legislature is working to repeal what is obviously a law offensive to ....
What is not clear is whose Interior Department was being quoted, although I am guessing it is the Mexican Interior Department, under Mr Fernando Gómez-Mont.
IMHO there is a lot of misinformation about the new Arizona Immigration Law. Now it appears that some who are throwing stones live in glass houses. Others are just not getting their own work done.
I would like to note that the US Congress has failed in its responsibility to the Citizens of this nation with regard to immigration.&nbp; Not the Democrats or the Republicans, but the US Congress. It is a single entity and has responsibilities as a single agency. Laying the blame off on this party or that is a sign of leadership failure on the part of the US Congress. Further, this is not about the President. We have a powerful Congress and I think we should expect more out of them than we are getting. Let us not hear that the 535 members of the US Congress are whinging about the President not leading. I am betting that deep down inside most of those 535 men and women think they can do as good a job, if not better, than the President. Always have and always will. OK then, lets see some of that attitude in action.
I have recently been pretty busy and haven't been able to scan all the local blogs. Has anyone talked about the US Constitution, Article 1, Section 10 - 3 WRT the new Arizona Law?
