President Fox Argues for Illegal Immigration

Wednesday, March 23, 2005

Mexican President Vicente Fox will meet with Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin and United States President George Bush today, in Texas, to discuss various issues concerning the three countries. Amongst the topics that will be discussed are NAFTA and illegal immigration. Fox especially wants to discuss the growing resistance the Mexican government sees against the waves of illegal immigrants pouring across the U.S. Border. One such group that has gotten his attention is the 950 member group known as the Minuteman Project. Their goal, beginning April 1 and lasting 30 days, is to assist U.S. Border Patrol by informing them when they see illegal immigrants breaching the Mexico-Arizona border. President Fox and the Mexican government are making plans to derail the Minuteman Project efforts. "We totally reject the idea of these migrant-hunting groups," Fox said. "We will use the law, international law and even U.S. law to make sure that these types of groups, which are a minority . . . will not have any opportunity to progress." (See here form more information.)
Let's stop there and look at what Fox is saying. Our United States Constitution, the Supreme Law of our Nation, clearly states: Article IV, Section 4: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence. We see from the above section that one of the proper functions of federal government is to protect each of the States from invasion. California is busting at the seems with illegal immigrants. There are numerous cases of illegal immigrants demanding medical treatment without paying for it. The citizens of California are left to pick up the tab. It is literally sucking that State's coffers dry. Our federal government needs to move to action. It plainly says so in their contract. But, when a government will not perform the functions that we have empowered them to do, we, as citizens, have the right to do it for them. I don't care what Vicente Fox says about rejecting the idea of migrant-hunting groups. Vicente Fox is in collusion with the illegal immigrants and is aiding and abetting them. After all, it was his government that created and distributes "The Guide for Mexican Immigrants" to aid individuals coming across the border illegally.

Looks like the Arizona vigilantes have forced the government to act and hire 500 more border agents. But that shouldn't stop the vigilantes.

From Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary:
One entry found for vigilante.

Main Entry: vig·i·lan·te
Pronunciation: "vi-j&-'lan-tE

As you read most of the news feeds on this developing story, they use "vigilante" like it's a dirty word... but it's not!
