Illegal aliens expressing their fear of American authorities
Disclaimer: I am an immigrant.
Being a native from Argentina makes me a Latino; whatever this means. After all, if your name is Rodriguez, and came from Spain, the former colonial power that subjugated and killed millions of Indians in north and South America, you qualify as a Latino, with all the perks it grants you.
And now to the purpose of this entry
I am thrilled by the new anti illegal aliens law in Arizona, and I hope that this motivates politicians all over the United States to start implementing similar laws. The outcry of the usual suspects is deafening. This alone should be enough to convince us that the law is terrific.
Rachel Maddow calls the law cruel. So does the majority of MSNBC, CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, NPR, etc. etc. which further reinforces my conviction.
Every pundit has become a constitutional scholar.
And now the civil right pimps have reemerged. Yep. The Arizona law must be great.
In the meantime, let us look at some headlines.
The AP reports that the kleptocracy ruling Mexico has acknowledged the report of Amnesty International, that their treatment of illegal aliens (in Mexico they are not referred as undocumented immigrants) is one of the worst human rights violations in the world. Among the accusations, Amnesty International accuses Mexico of the following:
--Deportation for those who attempt to report the abuses
Central American migrants are frequently pulled off trains, kidnapped en masse, held at gang hideouts and forced to call relatives in the U.S. to pay off the kidnappers. Such kidnappings affect thousands of migrants each year in Mexico, the report says.
Many are beaten, raped or killed in the process.
One of the main issues, Amnesty says, is that migrants fear they will be deported if they complain to Mexican authorities about abuses.
At present, Article 67 of Mexico's Population Law says, "Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal ... are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues."
And the president of Mexico continues to worry about the treatment of Mexicans by Arizona. Talk about chutzpa.

On the same subject, a Texas representative wants to introduce to Texas the same law as Arizona. Good for her.
In Alabama a candidate for governor says that if elected he'll give the state driver's license exam only in English, as a cost-saving measure.
What, he wants immigrants to speak English? This is so anti-American. Next he’ll demand that they get an education and stop being busboys and dishwashers.
