Mexico Criticizes New Texas ‘Sanctuary City’ Law

small violin

Imagine my distress…

From Yahoo: The Mexican government is expressing regret over a new Texas ban on so-called sanctuary cities, saying the law could step on the rights of its citizens who choose to live just across the border.

The Secretary of Foreign Relations on Monday said in a statement that the Texas law signed by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott “criminalizes even more the phenomenon of immigration.” It says the law foments racial discrimination and will reduce collaboration between police and immigrant communities.

Mexico is Texas’ largest trading partner and shares close ties with the state.

Abbott on Sunday night signed the bill that allows police to ask a person about their immigration status during routine traffic stops. He says the law does away with those who “seek to promote lawlessness in Texas.”

San Antonio’s police chief says the department will abandon a policy prohibiting officers in the nation’s seventh-largest city from asking about a person’s immigration status due to Texas’ new law banning so-called sanctuary cities.

Chief William McManus on Monday ripped Republican lawmakers over the law signed Sunday night, which opponents say is the nation’s most anti-immigrant law since an Arizona crackdown in 2010.

Texas’ law takes effect in September and will allow police officers to ask about a person’s immigration status during routine stops. McManus says that could include people even stopped for jaywalking. He says a written department policy prohibiting questions about immigration status was added several years ago following community meetings.

Abbott says the law will help fulfill a duty to keep “dangerous criminals off our streets.”

Critics say it will lead to Hispanics being racially profiled.

  1. Someone needs to inform the Mexican government that they have no say in matters regarding the United States. They do not make our laws and if they break our laws they must suffer the penalty for such crimes. Coming over the border from Mexico into the US illegally is a crime. Just as it is a crime if a US citizen crosses the US border into Mexico illegally and if they do the Mexican government will place their ass in jail until they rot. It truly makes one wonder if there has already been some closed door back room deal made with a US President, Mexico and Canada to open our borders and they just forgot to send us the memo. The way the Mexican government is acting is as if they have some sort of deal to allow their people to cross our border illegally.

      REMEMBER THE NAU? (North American Union), which was a “hot topic” circa mid-last-decade (2005-ish). Not sure what happened to it… maybe it went “underground” to get out of the spotlight:

      Above 2005 photo: Mexico’s President Vicente Fox (left), USA President GW Bush (center), & Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin (right).

      2005 Report at Rense by James Corsi:
      […]
      …2005 report entitled “Building a North American Community” published by the left-of-center Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). … What is the plan? Simple, erase the borders. The plan is contained in a “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America” … a community based on the principle affirmed in the March 2005 Joint Statement of the three leaders that “our security and prosperity are mutually dependent and complementary.” Its boundaries will be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter within which the movement of people, products, and capital will be legal, orderly and safe. Its goal will be to guarantee a free, secure, just, and prosperous North America. …

      Or, as the CFR report stated: “The three governments should commit themselves to the long-term goal of dramatically diminishing the need for the current intensity of the governments’ physical control of cross-border traffic, travel, and trade within North America. A long-term goal for a North American border action plan should be joint screening of travelers from third countries at their first point of entry into North America and the elimination of most controls over the temporary movement of these travelers within North America.”

      Wiki shows that Vicente Fox, in the earlier 2000’s, was pushing hard for the NAU, wanting MX-USA-CA to be like the EU. A funny quote from the GW Bush WhiteHouse is at the bottom:

      en.wikipedia [dot] org /wiki/North_American_Union
      […]
      During an interview for Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy in 2001, after he was elected president, [Vicente] Fox said that he sought with the United States a “convergence of our two economies, convergence on the basic and fundamental variables of the economy, convergence on rates of interest, convergence on income of people, convergence on salaries.” He suggested this might take as long as 20 years to be realized, but the ultimate “convergence” he saw between the United States and Mexico would allow them to “erase that border, open up that border for [the] free flow of products, merchandises, [and] capital as well as people”. Fox cited the success he claimed countries Republic of Ireland and Spain had in modernizing their economies and raising the standard of living for their citizens by joining what is now the European Union. Vicente Fox also proposed a plan to U.S. President George W. Bush and Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien that he said would move the North American continent towards an economic union based on the example of the European Union. Fox’s proposal was rejected by President Bush, with Fox later alleging in his book Revolution of Hope that the White House wanted him to “stop raising hackles” by talking about a North American Union.

      That wasn’t the end of it, though, as later mutual talks, plans, task forces, etc., were implemented (long page at Wiki). Of course, “conspiracy theorists” were mentioned as blowing it all out of proportion (Corsi, Ron Paul, Schafly, Lou Dobbs, etc.) The very fact they did so probably helped the SPP (“Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America”) to MOSTLY fizzle by 2009, or so Wiki says. In August 2007 they quote GWBush as saying that concern re a NAU was “political scare tactics” and that it was “comical” the “difference between reality and what some people are talking on TV about.”

      Fast Forward 10 years & we now have Enrique Peña Nieto as Mexican President, Justin Trudeau as Canadian PM, & of course, our very own Donald J. Trump as USA President. Hopefully he is awake to the [prior] CFR plans for a NAU & will not play ball with our sovereignty & will build that wall!

  2. That’s called being “legally profiled” not “racially profiled.” More insanity. If you are an illegal alien, your are breaking the law. Deport! And anyway, Mexico should just shut up and take care of their business. Oh, wait, promoting illegality is Mexico’s business. Forgot that for a minute.

  3. if an illegal is caught in Mexico, punishment for first offense is two years
    imprisonment. Second offense punished by 10 years imprisonment.
    Females are often raped frequently by police and guards.
    Mexicans are acting like they own America. Our parasitic,
    genocidal rulers are making a mockery of America allowing
    Mexican invasion.

  6. Categorizing Mexicans and Hispanics as a single race is laughable, unless of course you’re playing the race card to indirectly condemn whites of European ancestry, wherever they’re found, for the same ethnic and cultural self-interest that’s championed for all other peoples.

    As Aristotle said, man is a social animal whose identity is defined by his particular culture, so it’s no stretch to say that those behind the curtain directing open borders, mass immigration, and (oxymoronic) multiculturalism are denying we have any right to exist.

    The Kalergi Plan applied to America is still the most adequate high-level explanation for what’s going on as far as I know, even down to the level of America’s useful idiots’ “virtue signaling” in our local churches–just in case anyone should point to the incompatibility between their crassly materialistic lifestyles and Christian soteriology.

    If any of these hypocrites gave a darn about Mexican poverty, they’d be quietly sending their money there, instead of ostentatiously covering themselves with ashes, so to speak, by engaging in melodramatic displays of virtue-signaling in front of their neighbors.

  8. Reblogged this on necltr and commented:

    Mexico, use some of the great wealth of a few of your people obtained through corruption from the right set of Mexico and open your own sanctuary cities for refugees from south of your border and the Middle East. No more using your country in o order to destroy ours, stop providing non-stop express travel to people who fail to appreciate the blessings we offer to the honest and board working people, no more ushering into our land racists who are here to plunder, pillage, and rape. No more of your racism!

  10. Funny how they criticize our border security regimen when theirs are even harsher. I guess it’s ok for them to try to protect their southern border but not us. Sorry Mehico, you’re not one of the 50 states, stop pretending.

  11. Mexico is playing the victim again when we are doing the job they refuse to do. Of course when it is the Mexican border giving us so much grief, who are we to profile Swedes?
    Just let our border patrol do the job they do so well and to hell with the complainers. Sounds like they are taking playing the victim and bullying us right out of the Muslim book.
