Vincente Fox is a Humbug

Read the Dallas Morning News, "Great Divide: Vincente Fox Defends Mexican Immigrants' Pursuit of the American Dream," page 1 of the Points section, Oct. 14, 2007. Fox is so full of baloney. He calls the authorities of Irving, Texas xenophobes.

Americans have a right to dislike illegal aliens slipping across the border and flouting American laws.

In the same section is a related article, "Bush was So Deeply, Deeply Wrong, says Fox," where Fox says, "Immigration, say the xenophobes to the north, will destroy our American way of life."

Vincente Fox is a racist and a humbug. He is calling Americans xenophobes. He says we are against immigrants. Look at how Louisiana just elected the son of Indian immigrants, Bobby Jindal, their Governor. The Governor of California is an immigrant with an accent. Senator Barack Obama is running for President and he is the son of an immigrant. Contrary to Fox's insults, America does not hate immigrants. We vote them and their children into responsible positions of power.

Vincente Fox is a humbug. He is a disgrace to Mexico. The same way Fidel Castro emptied the prisons and insane asylums and sent them to Florida, Fox is sending the poor of Mexico into America to get rid of them. What he should do is reduce poverty in Mexico, but he won't do that. That would improve Mexico, and he doesn't want to do that.

I had a friend from India who came to America on an H1-B visa from Mexico. Why did that H1-B visa go to an Indian instead of a Mexican? Maybe Fox's government was too busy giving away comic books instructing Mexicans how to sneak into America to help Mexicans get in legally.

I am disgusted with Fox's double-talk.

Economics, Not Immigration, is the Issue

The Monday, October 8, 2007 issue of the Wall Street Journal had an Op-Ed piece (page A18) by Mary Anastasia O'Grady, "No Room for Entrepreneurs." She pointed out the importance of entrepreneurship for growing economies and highlighted the poor record many Latin American countries have in supporting entrepreneurship.

Latin America is an ocean of poverty and the illegal immigration problem we have is the overflow of poverty from south of the border. Hispanic leaders who wring their hands with worry over the plight of illegal aliens in America, while doing nothing to give Mexicans better lives within their own country, are frauds.

The Mexican government sends their people North instead of giving them better lives in Mexico. Hispanic leaders in America should worry less about helping illegal aliens avoid deportation and worry more about reducing corruption and improving opportunities in Mexico.

It is shameful how the poor of Mexico are used as political footballs by the Hispanic politicians.
