Arizona's Ra-aaa-cism


Check this out:

Every alien, eighteen years of age and over, shall at all times carry with him and have in his personal possession any certificate of alien registration or alien registration receipt card issued to him pursuant to subsection (d) of this section. Any alien who fails to comply with the provisions of this subsection shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall upon conviction for each offense be fined not to exceed $100 or be imprisoned not more than thirty days, or both.

Can you believe Arizona's ra-aa-cism?

Oh, wait a minute.That's been a long standing part of the US Code of Justice for years!

It appears that the State of Arizona has merely made these statues a part of state law to give their police a mandate for enforcing them.

And while we're looking at laws, let's take a peek of some of Mexico's immigration laws:

Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society:

* Foreigners are admitted into Mexico "according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress." (Article 32)

* Immigration officials must "ensure" that "immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance" and for their dependents. (Article 34)

* Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets "the equilibrium of the national demographics," when foreigners are deemed detrimental to "economic or national interests," when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken Mexican laws, and when "they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy." (Article 37)

* The Secretary of Governance may "suspend or prohibit the admission of foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest." (Article 38)


Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned:

* Foreigners with fake immigration papers may be fined or imprisoned. (Article 116)

* Foreigners who sign government documents "with a signature that is false or different from that which he normally uses" are subject to fine and imprisonment. (Article 116)

I certainly don't think I want to hear a single two-faced word out of the Mexican government or any of its officials about 'racism' or 'civil rights'.

please donate...it helps me write more gooder!

i'm glad ff included that last paragraph.
while reading the essay, i became confused about whether ff was proving that arizonans, like myself are racist, or mexico is a shithole of a country.

Hi Louie,
I would amend your interpretation that to say that I was proving that the State of Arizona is only following established US law and that Mexico's corrupt government is highly hypocritical on this issue and useless in general....something I think even a lot of Mexicans would agree with.

from ff comment:

the State of Arizona is only following established US law

there's good news, and bad news.
the good news is there are a lot of people in this country who know what established US law is/means.
the bad news is, none of them live in deecee.

I did not know this about Mexican Immigration law. Thank you for posting this!! Actually I suspect every nation has some kind of simillar laws on the books.

It actually makes good sense to have immigration laws like this. It's never been a problem for anyone else. Then when the United States, specifically the state of Arizona decides to do what other nations already do, its decried as racism. The leader of Mexico has even chined in complaining about this!! Why is there one set of laws for other nation states and separate of rules that the United States is expected to follow? In 9other words, why is the United States not afforded the same rights that other soverign nations seem to have?
