The 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 this, 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.

Too Bad!
In the immortal words of Clark Gable (in the movie Gone With the Wind) "Frankly my dear I don't give a DAMN". Mexico needs to just suck it up and take care of its own problems.

Exactly, I don't know how anyone could compare corruption in the United States (yes, it does exist, but not to the degree that it does down there) with corruption in Mexico.

Does that small degree of corruption have any bearing on this mess that we are in? Small degree of corruption in this country? Where have you been?

Nice try friend, this mess is horrible, but it doesn't compare to the horrific violence that goes on in Mexico due to the fact that a uniform law enforcement system doesn't exist because of bribery and corruption.

It seems to me that with over 10% of the population of Mexico in the US that there are a lot of almost empty villages in Mexico. So that's a lot of vacant housing and almost empty classrooms. When the llegal Mexicans return back to where they came from in Mexico the only thing they won't have is a job.

Our Justice Department was also corrupted. Okay, Mexico's corruption on local levels exceeds our corruption on local levels, but our Federal agencies were so deregulated under The Bush administration that corruption was rampant.

In order to weaken federal agencies, the Bush administration has expanded them to the point of collapse

I agree.

I'm shocked that some don't want to welcome back their hard-working who are just looking for opportunities...IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY!
