Setting The Record Straight . . .

Recently, President of Mexico, Felipe Calderon, said, Arizona SB 1070 is discriminatory and warned that trade and political ties with Arizona will be seriously strained by the crackdown. According to Calderon, the measure “opens the door to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement.”

The president of Mexico is scolding the State of Arizona about intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement? Really? Where is the protests against the systematic racism that is at the very heart of human smuggling? Where is the outrage that the cost of “brown” labor is kept artificially low throughout our continent by the very acts of human smuggling? Where is the outrage when the narcotic pushers strap dope to grandmothers? Where is the outrage that law enforcement has not done enough to stop the drop house rapes, tortures, and murders? Where is the outrage at the environmental impact that the human smugglers have inflicted on the natural desert with the trash and debris they leave strewn from the border to Tucson? Where are the sniping politicians from other States as Arizona goes broke cleaning up the Federal governments mess?

You want outrage? I’ll show you all outrage. The south didn’t want slavery to go away because it was “good for the economy”. It sickens me that this conversation even needs to happen today. How did we forget the Jim Crow attitudes that kept Americans of African descent in menial low paying jobs for so long after the 14th Amendment became law?

The underground economy of brown labor needs to be in the light. It will not happen until we stop the smuggling. We must shut down and seize the drop houses, the modern day version of a slave ship. We must uncover and prosecute every group, every charity, and every person that enables this slavery, the importation of illegal drugs, and gives sanctuary to murderers. These groups and people are behaving like organized criminal enterprises and are aiding and abetting them.

How many of the very people that are protesting are involved in smuggling? Are they not ashamed that these protests embolden the smugglers? Are you not ashamed of the crimes being committed against the innocent of your own country of origin? Grandmothers having cocaine and methamphetamine, and marijuana duck taped to their bodies and sent across the border. Why isn’t the Mexican government and Mexican Citizens ashamed of this? Their sisters and daughters and mothers are being used as mules for dope. Where is the shame? Brothers and fathers and sons are killing each other in the streets of Tucson. Where is the shame? Where is the protest for those deaths and atrocities being committed by the home grown terrorists, the ones you are supposedly trying to escape for a better life? If it is better here, if here is where you want to be, why are you allowing that filth to come with you? Why are you not leaving those criminals at the border?

The United States of America is a nation of laws. It is what keeps us civilized. Our commitment to justice is what keeps us from being like the countries you are coming from. Are you not ashamed to condemn the very country you claim to want to be a part of?

If the only reason you are here is for economic reasons, why are you here? If you are not here to be a citizen of the United States of America, why are you here? If you are not here to serve our nation as well as be served by it, why are you here? If you are only here to visit, why are you still here? Boycotting Arizona is not the answer, if it is, start the boycott by leaving.
