Mexico Says Their Citizens Returning Home Are A Burden: How Were They Not A Burden To America?

This is too damn funny…

As reported by the Tucson Citizen:

Mexico feeling the impact of Exodus of Illegal Aliens from US

Sonora foresees Mexican invasion
[Column by  Victor Mendoza Lambert ]

It’s a fact, the SB 1070 law will be a true nightmare for Sonora.  To the Sonoran immigrants who will return for obvious reasons, we must add the thousands and thousands of Mexicans who  will cross the border daily to enter our country to avoid being jailed.  I hope that the Federation and the State foresee this, because cities like Nogales are already suffering.

The problem is not that they cross for a few days; the problem is that they stay; the problem is the unemployment that we have and that we see mounting in that area; the problem is the violence and the risk that many of those unemployed and desperate Mexicans will join the ranks of organized crime which, as we well know, has taken a liking to Nogales.  From this arises the urgency of a true strategy in which the Federation might contemplate helping all those people so that they return to their places of origin and avoid this nightmare in the border areas of Sonora.

The Arizona authorities in the past few days have toughened their campaign to find and deport undocumenteds.  In Nogales, there are days when up to 1,200 men and women are deported and the disputed law has not yet even been applied.  Can one imagine when that happens? This means it is urgent that the concerns become actions and for the implementation of a regulated plan.

Then, how it appears, neither the “lovely” speeches by Felipe Calderon nor the good intentions of Barack Obama will be able to counteract this enormous problem.  Unemployment is the darkest shadow our country will have in the coming months and Sonora will suffer before the others.  Because of this, Guillermo Padres [Governor of Sonora] will have much work to do in Mexico City; he has to knock on many doors to avoid our border from becoming an uninhabitable zone.  There is not the slightest doubt that Sonora will be one of the most vulnerable states.  If living in Nogales is a risk now, just imagine what it will be with thousands of Mexicans who, day after day, return …   It goes without saying, our state finds itself between a rock and a hard place, or better said, between a rock and the border.

It appears that Mexico is starting to feel the impact of years of illegal aliens entering the United States. As more and more Mexicans who have entered the US illegally are self deporting or being deported by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, they themselves are wondering what they are going to do when their citizens return. The assumptions that the writer makes about the illegals that may return is striking. ” The problem is not that they cross for a few days; the problem is that they stay…” […]

Thus Mexico begins to see a huge burden when their citizens return to their own country.  And the obvious question comes to mind: “And how were these same Mexican citizens not a burden on the United States when they were illegally living in OUR country?”

The myth that these illegal immigrants were a “boon” to America is finally permanently put to rest.

The DemocRAT Party has been assuring us that Mexican illegal immigrants aren’t a “nightmare” or a “burden.”  Oh, no.  They have been little blessed darlings and all they do is make America more wonderfuller than ever.  They don’t swamp our social support system; they don’t overwhelm our schools and our emergency rooms; they don’t take jobs that poor Americans WOULD be willing to do if the wages hadn’t been artificially depressed by illegal immigrants who in many cases live 20 to a house.  And, of COURSE illegal immigrants aren’t involved in anything like those nasty criminal gangs.

Except they ARE members of nasty criminal gangs.  See hereAnd hereAnd here.  Here’s a bullet point from a Center for Immigration Studies article:

25-50% of all gangsters arrested in northern and western Virginia are estimated to be deportable aliens. Gang investigators estimate that 90% of the members of MS-13, the most notorious immigrant gang, are illegal aliens.

And that’s not in Arizona, where the problem is huge.  It’s in Virginia!!!

And, of course, they ARE draining our nation, one-by-one, thousand-by-thousand, million-by-million.

Rep. Lamar Smith points out the following:

When it comes to taxes, amnesty supporters like to say that illegal immigrants will pay their “fair share” of taxes after being granted amnesty.  This is deceptive.

Low-skilled workers often pay no taxes and receive a check from the Internal Revenue Service in the form of the Earned Income Tax Credit.  Putting illegal immigrants on the IRS rolls will actually cost the federal government money.

Since most illegal immigrants have less than a high school education and have well below average incomes, even those illegal immigrants who pay taxes pay far less in taxes than they (and their families) consume in taxpayer-supported benefits.  Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation found that the average immigrant household headed by an immigrant without a high school degree receives over $19,000 more in total government benefits each year than it pays in federal, state and local taxes!

So with every illegal immigrant entering the country, you can hear the cash register: “Ka-ching!  Ka-ching!  Ka-ching!”  $19,000.  Another $19,000.  Another $19,000.  And so on, and so on, ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

Well, they’ve been a burden here for years.  And now when those same illegal immigrants return home to their own country, the very same people who burdened our system are now burdening Mexico’s system.
