Do yourself a favor: Don\’t be eating or drinking anything when you read this.
Excerpted from Julia Symmes Cobb\’s incredible article at reuters.com:
Ina television interview aired late on Wednesday Pena Nieto said he andU.S. President BarackObama discussed the issue during their meeting at a NorthAmerican leaders\’ summit held last week in Mexico.
“Yesit makes me indignant, and it makes Mexicans indignant,” PenaNieto said in the interview, when asked whether deportations angeredhim.
“There\’sa lack of conscience, something which shouldn\’t only alert and worryMexicans, it should also worry the American government and theyshould take up the issue,” said Pena Nieto.
PenaNieto added that he sees a willingness on the part of the Obamaadministration to change immigration laws, and that reform whichprovides a path to citizenship should “have the backing and aidof the various political forces” in the United States.
Abill that would have provided ways for the approximately 11 millionimmigrants living in the United States illegally to obtaincitizenship recently stalled in the Republican-controlled U.S. Houseof Representatives.
Can you believe this man\’s hypocrisy?
I have two words for enrique pena nieto. Propriety causes me not to post the first word, but the second is “you”. I assume readers can do the math.
And now I have a question for him: what, exactly, does Mexico do with illegals who come across the Mexican border? Do you welcome them with open arms — or do you send them right back to where they came from? We both know the answer, don\’t we?
enrique pena nieto is indignant that we don\’t take millions of his own people the way he and his government never would? What a disgusting, blatant hypocrite he is.
Now, let\’s discuss how pena nieto and his government treat the exact same people he professes to be “indignant” about.
Why, President pena nieto, do you think almost 10% of Mexican\’s entire population has chosen to cross the border illegally, to live in the shadows – often being exploited with low pay, squalid living conditions and no protection from employers happy to exploit them? Why do you think they prefer this kind of existence to living in their own country as legal citizens?
Because Mexico is providing them with the ability to earn enough to support their families and live in dignity?
Let\’s remember that Mexico is no third-world country. It has vast natural resources, and thriving industrial, agricultural and tourist industries. Therefore, the one and only reason Mexicans who seek work come over that border is because their own country treats them like dirt and could not care less.
You\’re indignant, President pena nieto? I don\’t give a damn. Because I\’M indignant.
I\’m indignant at your disgusting treatment of millions of Mexican people which causes them to flee their homeland and come here. And I\’m especially indignant that you think the USA, not Mexico, is responsible for their well being.
I will end the way I started. Think of two words, Mr. President – the second of which is “you”.
That is what you get from me, because it is what you deserve.
