I'm back...Thanks Nigel!
This was posted yesterday after the show ended, such that it went unnoticed, and thus unresponded to. Since we cannot allow ignorance to fester without making at least an effort to end the same, let me repost, add my commentary and open the floor to the rest of us. Let's see if Mr, Signalmanarizona comes back:
The law in arizona has yet to take effect.This state is being over run with illegal aliens and something had to be done. The federal government has not taken action and that includes both reps and dems.There are many legal ways for people to become citizens all they have to do is follow the law.Maybe the President of Mexico should concentrate on fixing his country and stop worring about the state of Arizona is doing.Then he might be able to find jobs for all his citizenery if Mexico was such a great place to live may they would not want to cross a dangerous desert in the 100 degree heat.Secure the border and then we can talk about what happens next.
Mr. Signalmanarizona, you claim that there are many legal ways for people to become US citizens, do you have any idea of the hoops that must be jumped through and the waiting times involved, especially for people from South of the Border without the educational skills that we grant visas for? You seem to feel that the Mexican President could provide jobs for his citizenry (and I have plenty of criticism for the Mexican government) yet you don't reference the dumping of GMO corn and other crops by the US into Mexico destroying their local agriculture. Nor do you reference US trade policies in general, which propped up maquiladoras along the border, only to have those jobs shipped off to Asia, leaving many poor Mexicans near the US border without any means of support. You do not mention the US providing half a Billion Dollars in military aid, in support of the US failed War on Drugs, which has killed over 10,000 just since Mr. Calderon has taken power.
Before NAFTA, many Mexicans were able to live on subsistance farming without jobs. It is the process of Globalization which is destroying the means of Indigenous peoples everywhere to live simply such that others may simply live. It is our gluttonous lifestyle which is destroying the very Earth we depend on.
Ya'll come back now, ya hear...
