Is anyone so naive not to see through this ruse? So now foreigners are “flooding” into Mexico.

Mexico has taken steps to allow the increasing number of foreigners who flood into the country each year, whether legally or illegally, to apply for citizenship.

I smell an ulterior motive. Since they don't even provide for their own citizens why would they want more immigrants to become citizens? I think we know what is behind this little scenario.

Absolutely! They are hoping the U.S. will follow suit. Did you notice the only “foreigners” they showed are American, and legally living in Mexico? This is so utterly transparent, it’s laughable.

Mexico 'opens its arms' to immigrants - 31 Oct 09 Video
This video was brought to you courtesy of Al-Jezeera.

Mexico flies into a rage when we return their own citizens to them. The idea of them welcoming mobs of impoverished Central Americans with open arms is a bit strange in view of that. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Americans are welcome in Mexico if they have money and are not there to work. I would gladly welcome anyone from Mexico in the US who meets the same criteria.

Well, Mexico's remittances have plummeted so this is a desparate move to keep the money flowing from the US to Mexico.

Yes, Al Jezeera. Isn’t that interesting?

If foreigners are flooding into Mexico, why aren’t their citizens who are here illegally returning in droves to this new paradise?

I think it's a great idea. I can't wait until millions of Muslims move to Mexico, and start building mosques in the village square.

Let's examine this video though:
1. Everyone they talked to says they're there legally. Not an illegal alien in the bunch.

2. The only ones I heard say they actually live there are the one who sells Mexican crafts, and perhaps the one who bills herself as a local artist. She's an older woman though, probably retired, and her art may just be a hobby. The other one was an older man, obviously past the age of retirement. Retirees don't work, they only spend. As for the others they showed, they may all be tourists.

3.The ones they showed from Central and South America riding atop the train have no desire to remain in Mexico, and become citizens. Their goal is the US, and Mexico just a pathway here. You'll notice none of them were interviewed.

4.There's a caveate though---That Mexican official, Pedroza, said all foreigners who CONTRIBUTE to Mexican society are welcome. By contribute, I suspect he means bring your own money.

So what I get from the video is there's a bunch of older retired people, and tourists, of European ancestry (who says they're all Americans?) living in, or visiting Mexico. You gotta hand it to Mexico though, they couldn't strong arm the US into giving millions of illegal aliens amnesty, so now they're trying to shame us into it. The only way that will work is if they take in 20 million + illegal aliens from countries in worse shape than theirs, like Darfur, or Somalia, and give them amnesty, and you know that's not about to happen.
