Mexico Enforcing Immigration Laws
Friday, December 12, 2008, 10:10 AM


A New York Times story reports that Mexico has deported 350 Americans back to the United States during the first nine months of 2008. The number represents one percent of all deportees in the country.

The National Migration Institute, which is Mexico's immigration service, reports that the Americans were deported because they were charged with crimes in Mexico and served time and prison or they were travelers who were found without paperwork.

The New York Times story goes through the process of an American who was deported earlier this year. He was sent to a prison for a week while the American Consulate prepared travel documents for him. He was then flown from Acapulco, which is where he was detained, to Tijuana where he was then driven to the U.S. border in a government van.

Mexico has deported nearly 29,000 immigrants this year. Most deportees come from Central America.

The New York Times has more on this story

Well, they have checkpoints in Mexico too, so, fair is fair.

I'll comment for you, MK.


This story is ironic, and a funny twist on the immigration discussion.

Fair is fair: Mexico is a sovereign nation so if an illegal alien caught there whines--------------oh well.

Yet no one whines about how Mexico runs business. Especially the Mexicans.

Yes -- and we're not seeing a single American protesting this deportation. No one is claiming that the Mexicans are racist for expecting Americans to abide by their laws.

Well, I see Mexico/Mexicans being called racist all the time on these boards.
And to be an American, especially an Anglo-American, and to be deported from Mexico, you have to do something pretty bad. Or really get in the way of law enforcement.
To be deported for something as small as not having a passport is ridiculous. Americans coming south is money for Mexico. Mexico is very tourist friendly, and I've never gone down there with a passport(though that'll change with the new laws in place).
The Central Americans don't have money to spend in Mexico, so of course they're going to be deported quickly. Plus, most of the time those people are headed to the U.S. anyway.

No one ever calls Mexicans racist for how they run their own country, it's only for the way they are after they get here and start proclaiming they are taking the USA over, that we had better learn Spanish and for the way they wave their flags in our faces shouting that every thing is for "La Raza". They claim they have a racist right to break whatever laws of the USA that don't suit them.

If Mexicans deported Americans for whatever reason, it's fine. They have that right and ALL people should abide by the laws of the countries they wish to visit.
