I am putting this in for I think it goes along with the post that I saw here about border laws and that Az has put up what they cal a new law but has been in for a very long time on the fed side of the law. Read what Mexico has said and thier rules about illegals. HARSH YOU SAY ?? 1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools, no special ballots for elections, and all government business will be conducted in our language. 2. Foreigners will NOT have the right to vote, no matter how long they are here. 3. Foreigners will NEVER be able to hold political office. 4. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, nor any other government assistance programs. 5. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage. 6. If foreigners do come and want to buy land that will be okay, BUT options will be restricted. You are not allowed to own waterfront property. That property is reserved for citizens naturally born into this country. 7. Foreigners may not protest; no demonstrations, no waving a foreign flag, no political organizing, no "bad-mouthing" our president or his policies If you do you will be sent home. 8. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be hunted down and sent straight to jail. and you sure dont want in thier jails! Harsh, you say ?... The above laws happen to be the immigration laws of MEXICO!!! I just had to put this in here what a diferent way a country says things

Hello my friend Lakota12 Ji, In this free world, when everyone has freedom of speech in their own country, barring few then find nothing harsh by any country to frame tehir own rules and regulations. It may duit to them and not for others. Any outsider viists for their own purpose and wants to sttle there temporarily or permanently, is individual's bussiness. Why particular country should change the rules. I wish that some of the rules would have applied by my country, we would have been at ease. To give you an example our second grand daughter is US-Citizen, I have read her Indian Oorigin VISA. It clearly states taht She can never take part in sports in particular other than US. We have to commly and honor other's behaviour. Take care. May God bless You and have a great time.

SOunds like she can do sports here why would she want to be in sports any where else as this is adopted country? What gets me on this from MExico is they dont really try to stop illegles comong here to get all thuis countries hand outs but if we went there with no money to live on we would be jailed and I can tell you hard to get out of htier jails for all I have read and they shoot some that dont follow their rules

Sounds fair to me. If you want to live there, you follow the rules. What's the big deal? Why should the government give welfare to foreigners when they have enough people who were born there who need help? As for the part of not owning ocean front property, you can lease it and enjoy it. It's not forever, but it is long enough to have a great life on the beach.

Hi Lakota12, My goodness, what a contrast to the way our country treats illegal immigrats, we pamper them here in the UK. Yes! I do agree that is far too harsh, what would they say if we treat them the same way as they treat their immigrants? Tamara

The Mexicans in Mexico have it made. There are no foreigners working for less for their jobs as the government there will not allow it. Yet they decide to cross the border and will work for less then Americans will. Maybe America should borrow from the Mexican law. It might decrease the illegal immigration problem.

What do I say? Whatever happened to fare? All the things I dream of for the US is right in this list. That is bizarre! So if we go there we are in trouble but if they come here they life it up! I am apolled. I have watched that cable show about imprisoned abroad. Ugh! All the foreigners are so cruel and strict.

They certainly are much stricter than we are. It is about time we started applying their own laws to the illegal Mexican immigrants here. Perhaps it will make sense to them if they recognize them as their own laws and not just something to complaint about.
