AP: Mexico Demands U.S. Allow More Immigration---

Diplomats from Mexico and Central America on Monday demanded guest worker programs and the legalization of undocumented migrants in the United States, while criticizing a U.S. proposal for tougher border enforcement.

Meeting in Mexico's capital, the regional officials pledged to do more to fight migrant trafficking, but indirectly condemned a U.S. bill that would make illegal entry a felony and extend border walls.

"Migrants, regardless of their migratory status, should not be treated like criminals," they said.
Au contraire. Illegal aliens are criminals. Worse, they are invaders. They should not be treated as anything other.

Do we not have a right to make our own laws in this country . . . and enforce them?

The countries represented at the meeting _ including Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Belize and Panama _ created a working group to design a regional policy to avoid migrant abuse and to follow the course of the legislation.

"There has to be an integrated reform that includes a temporary worker program, but also the regularization of those people who are already living in receptor countries," Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez said.

Derbez has called the measure _ which passed the U.S. House of Representatives last month but still must go before the Senate _ "stupid and underhanded," but was somewhat more restrained on Monday, saying "it's not the Mexican government's position to tell the U.S. Senate what to do."
Well, then, stop doing it! And frankly, go to hell! We are not obliged to do any such thing. Rather, Mexico is obliged to stop its citizens from invading our country and to create an economic environment that provides jobs for them, instead of sending them to the United States.

We need to get these immigration laws passed AND, most importantly, enforce them. The very future of our country and sovereignty is at stake.
