An agency of the Mexican government is going to issue 70,000 maps marking main roads and water tanks for people waiting to cross our border illegally.
The stated purpose of the maps is to reduce the death toll of illegals, but we know the real game, don’t we? It is to make it easier for foreign nationals to break our laws.
This has got to be stopped and it has to be stopped now. No more talk about amnesty or worker programs that let those already here illegally continue to benefit from our system and way of life. If we continue to have virtually open borders we will no longer have our system and our way of life will be diminished.
The Mexican government is committing a hostile act against the United States. How would the Mexican government like it if the American government tried to help Americans break Mexican laws?
The Bush Administration hasn’t helped with its namby-pamby approach to illegal immigration. Maybe there will need to be more citizen action like the minutemen to stem the flow.
