Mexican Minutemen

Los Angeles 22nd of May front page of LA Opinion newspaper headline with pictures: Mexican immigration officials rounding up Central American illegals. "Mexico to construct more deportation centers".

The article goes on to state that Mexico will be building a total of 13 new deportation and detention centers. It also mentions that Mexico due to its geographical location has become a destination that must be crossed on the journey north of Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans.

They refer to these undocumented workers as illegal foreigners who Mexico has to spend money to detain, feed and deport.It also states that it is a crime to cross illegaly into Mexico.

Mexico last year deported more Central Americans that did the dreaded Bush Migra. Ask ANY Central American. The worst MIGRA is without doubt the Mexican Migra.

When planning a trip to " El Norte" all of us know that once you get pass Mexican Migra you're almost home free.

That brings up the question in Mexico can I say ningun ser humano es ilegal?

In Yucatan, can a Guatemalan Maya say I didn't cross the border the border crossed us?

Last week Mexico also tightened laws in term of what a naturalized citizen can and can't do.

In racist fascist America if you are born in Austria and become a citizen you can become Governator of KAHLIFONIA. In Mexico if you become a Mexican Citizen but are foreign born you can't even become a Cop in Tijuana.

As all of us struggle here in America to try to get some type of legalization for ALL of us who are undocumented there is no better argument to deny us than the recent actions of the Mexican government.

No rednecks, no inbred toothless minutemen, no Lou Dobbs, no radio talk show host can do more harm to our cause than the recent actions of the Mexican xenophobes.

All you have to do is take the May 22nd edition of La Opinion and wave the headline,
"Mexico to construct more deportation centers".

We have met the enemy and he is us.

Shame shame shame on you Vicente Fox.
