    A Refresher Course: Mexico's Immigration Laws

    Mexico’s Immigration Laws

    The Mexican constitution strictly defines the rights of citizens, and the denial of many rights to non-citizens. The General Law on Population, spelling out the country’s immigration policy, should cause Americans to ask: Why is our southern neighbor pushing us to water down our immigration laws and policies when its own immigration restrictions are the toughest on the continent? If a felony is a crime punishable by more than a year in prison, Mexican law makes it a felony to be an illegal alien in Mexico. Yet if the United States adopted such a law, Mexico would no doubt denounce it as a manifestation of American bigotry.

    Mexico’s main immigration law welcomes only foreigners deemed useful to Mexican society:

    _ Foreigners are admitted into Mexico “according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress.

    UNITED STATES ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION LAWS



    Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:

    * Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or
    * Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or
    * Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact;

    has committed a federal crime.

    Violations are punishable by criminal fines and imprisonment for up to six months. Repeat offenses can bring up to two years in prison. Additional civil fines may be imposed at the discretion of immigration judges, but civil fines do not negate the criminal sanctions or nature of the offense.

    Thanks for the refresher! A real President would have taken a copy of that with him to his little meeting with Calderon and shoved it down his throat>

    They didn't. They still deport illegal aliens from south of their border,
    they just don't send them to prison for a felony, like they used to.

    Mexico also still deports undesirable aliens.

    An undesirable American alien is an American with no U.S. money in their pocket.
