Mexican Govt. Places Ads In US Newspapers

Via email:

David says - I was just wondering if you or anyone else saw the ad that Mexico ran in the newspapers yesterday. I saw the ad in the Washington Times and, from I understand, they ran it in several newspapers on both sides of the border. Here is an article explaining it more. It is a sad day in this country when another country runs ads in OUR papers justifying their people breaking OUR laws.


Mexico published advertisements in major newspapers here and in the United States on Monday saying migrants should have the same rights as everyone else and calling it “indispensable” that the two countries reach a migration accord. Published in English in The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times, and in Spanish in leading Mexico City newspapers, the full-page ads coincide with expected U.S. Senate debate on a bill that would extend fences along the U.S.-Mexico border crack down on illegal immigration with law enforcement and the military.

“Acknowledging the sovereign right of each country to regulate the entrance of foreigners, it is indispensable to find a solution for the undocumented population that lives in the United States and contributes to the development of the country, so that people can be fully incorporated into their actual communities, with the same rights and duties,” the ad read.

The ad’s content was taken primarily from a report outlining the goals and recommendations of a committee of Mexican legislators, executive branch officials, diplomats, academics, foreign policy experts and social group leaders. The ad states that Mexico wants “a far-reaching guest workers scheme” and that “in order for a guest workers program to be viable, Mexico should participate in its design, management, supervision and evaluation.”

“Mexico does not promote undocumented migration,” it read, adding that Mexico “is committed to fighting all forms of human smuggling and related criminal activities.” But both countries share the responsibility in dealing with the issue which was complicated immensely after the Sept. 11 attacks and Washington’s subsequent moves to beef up security along its borders, Mexico said in the ads.

It also acknowledged that it needs to create incentives for its citizens to return home, and suggested offering housing credits. And it called for the creation of a cross-border medical insurance system, while proposing that Mexicans living and working in the United States continue to qualify for pension programs in their native country.

President Vicente Fox’s spokesman Ruben Aguilar said Monday that Mexico published the ads to make the government’s views “better known and evaluated by relevant actors who participate in the migration debate.” He added that the debate is “in its most-important moments.” The U.S. House of Representatives already passed the proposed border protection, anti-terrorism and illegal immigration control act, and the Senate is expected to take it up by the end of the month, reports the AP.

    To Vicente Fox, Rob Allyn of Allyn & Co., you just made your point to the American people - you absolutely do not respect the sovereignty of the United States and you do blantantly encourage illegal immigration and meddle in our national affairs. BUTT OUT - Your concerns are completely self-serving and totally transparent. Get real.

    I hope and pray they build that wall and crack down on those who hire illegals, but for some reason I just don’t see it happening.

    The reactions from are political “leaders” is deafening isn’t it. I have never been so proud to hear are leaders in washington telling Mexico where to stick their demands. Maybe all is not lost, wait I’m dreaming and not a single “leader” in the United States has said shit. This is such a sad, sad, situation we have allowed to evolve.

    Allyn and co are owned by a company called Fleishman and Hilliard, which in its turn is owned by a NYSE listed corporation by the name of Omnicon. Fleishman and Hilliard are notable for being at the bleeding edge of mainstreaming homosexuality in America, and the world. If you have an extra minute, Google them and do a little snooping around. They do have a 1800 number to call and discuss ‘concerns’ about ‘ethical issues’. Long story short-even though they do earn their money from the black art of public relations, they in fact are primarily an agent of social engineering that the komintern would have envied.

    God help us all. But, lets’ be real Americans and not lay down and take this anymore. Remember that there are 12 million illegals but over 250 million U.S. citizens. They can scream, yell , carry their flags, disrespect ours - but they will never, never be a real part of the “American Dream”. They have no clue what that means, guestworker or not. They are their own worst enemy. They will remain in the lower rungs of our society for generations.

    I am a proud American of Mexican decent. It is a sad day in America when hard working Mexicans are called Terrorists. I would love to see how this country turns out if this new law passes. It would be so funny to see an Anglo, or even a Mexican-American, working in the fields, in packing houses, or any other job those “illegals” are willing to take. They wouldn’t last one day! Ya’ll would be begging the Mexican government to send back those “illegals.” Think about it. What about those America born children with illegal parents? What would happen to them. Are they not American? Those children have the same rights as anybody else. And on the comment made by Cotessa: Sweety, I am living the American dream, I am a lawyer, make a lot of money and have a beautiful wife. When my mom came here, illegally, she new exactly why she was doing it. Now, she too is living the American dream. I think you might have some self-esteem issues. God bless America. Viva Mexico.
