Unbelievable!!! The shoe is on the other foot and the
Mexicans from Sonora don't like it. Can you believe the nerve of these
people? It's almost funny.
State of Sonora, Mexico is angry at the Flood of Mexicans returning to Mexico!
Nine state legislators from the Mexican state of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona 's new employer crackdown on illegals from Mexico .
It seems that many Mexican illegals are now returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state government are ticked off about it. A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to say Arizona 's new employer sanctions law will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state.
At a news conference, the legislators said Sonora , (Arizona 's southern neighbor, made up of mostly small towns,) cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools it will face as Mexican workers return to their hometowns without jobs or money.
The Arizona law, which took effect Jan.1, punishes employers who knowingly hire individuals who don't have valid legal documents to work in the United States. Penalties include suspension of, or loss of, their business license. The Mexican legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their hometowns, placing a burden on their state government.
'How can they pass a law like this?' asked Mexican Rep. Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales . 'There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona ,' she said, speaking only in Spanish. 'Mexico is not prepared for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans (working in Arizona and sending money to their families) return to hometowns in Sonora without jobs,' she said. 'We
are one family, socially and economically,' she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona .
The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico, and its taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico's citizens. It's time for the Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop parasitically feeding off of the United States and to start taking care of its/their own needs. Too bad all the US states don't pass a law just like Arizona 's. Maybe that's the answer, since our own Congress will not do anything!
