What Would Mexico Do? (WWMD?)

Here is a link to a great column by Michael Reagan. In this column, Mr. Reagan fills us in on some rather enlightening sections from Mexico's constitution that deal with immigration and the rights of foreigners living in Mexico. Here are some examples taken right from the Mexican constitution:
Pursuant to Article 33, "Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country."
Gosh, does that mean that if I go to Mexico and protest one of their policies - say, their immigration policies - I would be kicked out of the country?
Article 55 denies immigrants the right to become federal lawmakers. A Mexican congressman or senator must be "a Mexican citizen by birth."
Gosh, I know of quite a few foreign-born congressmembers in the United States. You mean that Mexico doesn't allow the same thing in their country?
Article 32: "Mexicans shall have priority over foreigners under equality of circumstances for all classes of concessions and for all employment, positions, or commissions of the Government in which the status of citizenship is not indispensable."
What? You mean that Mexico favors Mexican citizens over foreigners - legal and illegal - in matters of employment?

Watch your step folks; there's a whole lot of hypocrisy goin' on, and it's littered all over the ground from here to the Rio Grande.

I think of all those numb-nuts walking our streets in protest and idiotically flying that Mexican flag. Fine - if they want us to be like Mexico, then let us indulge them. Let's adopt all those provisions from the Mexican constitution, and then use it as justification to ship their illegal keesters back where they came from.

Good Day to You, Sir

More little snippets from the Mexican constitution: illegals are considered to be felons and will serve up to three years in prison (no,no! Not in a MEXICAN PRISON!), even legal immigrants can be deported at any time for any reason; also, Mexico deports more illegal aliens each year than does the United States! And they think they have the right to tell us how OUR country should be run.
