Anti-illegal immigrant groups launch Mexico tourism boycott | mexico, flyers, say, border, immigration - News - OCRegister.com

Quote:
"With Americans going down … it would be contributing to the economy of a country that is hostile to the United States of America," said Barbara Coe, a Huntington Beach resident and leader of California Coalition for Immigration Reform. "Mexico has constantly tried to interfere with immigration policy."


Quote:
Mexican Consul Carlos Rodríguez y Quezada disputes the fliers' claims that Mexico urges amnesty, is violent and is a bad neighbor.

"We've always been good friends and good neighbors," he said. "We're not demanding amnesty but immigration reform."
Yes, immigration reform for every single illegal alien from Mexico whom the Mexican govt. feels is entitled to every US-subsidized service.

I doubt it'll be effective, if most tourist ignore the US department of state warnings, I doubt they'll listen a radical group, those groups are appealing to minorities usually.

The truth is that Mexico is an awesome country, and it won't stop being awesome because some people think different, all those warnings and stuff don't make her loose her coolness a bit but if they want to miss the sun, beaches, music and the fun it's their loss, people from as far as Japan or Australia come here every year.

Agreed awesome place!!! Mexico is not just a destination for tequila shootin' or Corona swigging spring breakers. Beautiful pyramids all over and who knows how many more are yet to be discovered. Fascinating place with diverse regional customs and cultures.

He hasn't been informed by La Racist that CIR is a code word for amnesty.

Shhh!!! You should be very careful with those words.

The law states that Mexico is entitled to have its demands met otherwise not doing so constitutes as an oh-so-blatant act of racism, bigotry, xenophobia, Hispanophobia, etc.

You read my mind. I literally copied the identical segment of the story you quoted to respond to.

That being said, I totally agree with you. Mexican officials and US anchor babies in our government need to stop pretending that they aren't constantly whining and demanding amnesty for their poverty stricken masses. Someone just posted a story on this forum about mexican officials who are ticked off, whining and complaining about not having the means to supply jobs or take care of their nationals returning from the US.

Additionally, they delusionally believe that Americans are willing to risk life and limb just to get a suntan and drink themselves into a drunken stupor in Mexico. The reality of the situation is there are numerous countries for spring breakers to go, get some sun, have some fun and actually live to tell their vacation stories.

When you factor in the daily beheadings courtesy of mexico's drug cartels and the issues that continue to arise with regard to mexico demanding that we allow their dangerous vehicles to transport their cheap goods on our highways, it simply reiterates that the US needs to cut them off, seal the borders and let them back up their machismo.

The US does not need their cheap imports or their cheap illegal alien labor in order to survive. The reality of the situation is mexico is a drain on all things America and they wouldn't last 30 days without America propping it up.

In light of the fact that we have a full blown economic recession and illegal alien backlash is in full swing, it's time for mexico to count it's blessings because the reality of the situation is the US has and will continue to survive without anything or any of their nationals crossing our southern ever again in this life or the next. We never have needed them and we never will.

We all know whose been propping up who for the sake of giving it the appearance of being a real country.

Tourism in Mexico is a very large industry. Mexico is the number one destination for foreign tourists within the Latin America region, ranking worldwide in the eighth place in terms of the international tourist arrivals, with 21.4 million visitors in 2006.[1] Revenues from international tourists reached USD 12.17 billion in 2006, and Mexico captured 15.7% of the Americas international tourism market share in terms of arrivals, In 2005, tourism contributed with 5.7% of the country's revenues from exports of goods and services, and represented 14.2% of direct and indirect employment.

Having traveled all over the world I feel confident in saying this. Ignoring a travel advisory is a good way to find yourself in a bad situation. I love Thailand and the Thai people. I travel to Thailand every year with my wife. Make no mistake I never venture to southern Thailand. I don't want to end up dead, kidnapped or maimed. I am a combat vet highly trained and I am very confident in my survival abilities. Yes no doubt Mexico has some attractive areas. They also have some seriously dangerous areas. Especially if you are a non-native or a tourist. Enter at your own risk. Bad things happen to people who ignore warnings.
