Whose country is this again?

"TUCSON- A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora (Mexico)traveled to Tucson to make the case against Arizona's new employer sanctions law,The lawmakers say it will have a devastating affect on the Mexican state. At a news conference Tuesday, they said Sonora cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools it will face as illegal Mexican workers in Arizona return to their hometowns without jobs or money." - Associated Press
You can not make this stuff up. And exactly why are these conditions in Mexico our problem? Why is it that we U.S. citizens have to put up with the housing conditions, crime, subsidize the health care and pay the school taxes for these illegal immigrants? It gets better. Here are some more of the money quotes:

"How can they pass a law like this?" asked Mexican Rep. Leticia Amparano Gamez, who represents Nogales."

Well, I suspect the reason Senorita Gamez is that it is still our country and we can make the laws even if the people from your country do not respect them. Which is the reason why the illegal immigrants should not be shown any respect too. You see there is a still a difference when you cross the border from Mexico.

"What do we do with the repatriated?" he asked. "As Mexicans, we are worried. They are Mexicans but they are also people's fathers and mothers and young people with jobs who won't have work in Sonora."

If you ask me you as elected officials of Mexico should be looking to bring jobs into your area. Another thing you need to remember is that the United States is a Republic not an employment agency for Mexico. Try and rember that.
