Less than eight months after replacing Vicente Fox, Mexican President Felipe de Jesus Calderon Hinojosa has morphed into a dangerous facsimile of Nazi despot Adolph Hitler and, sadly, President George W. Bush is starting to look a little too much like Neville Chamberlain. In his televised State of the Union address to the Mexican people from the National Palace in Mexico City on September 2, Calderon said "...Mexico does not stop at its borders. That means wherever there is a Mexican, there is Mexico. And, for this reason, the government action on behalf of our countrymen is guided by principles, for the defense and protection of their rights."
Calderon also bragged in his speech that he created 618 thousand jobs in Mexico since taking office in January. In point of fact, Calderon simply held open the already swinging door between the United States and Mexico and gave the one finger wave to American industrialists who were exporting both factories and jobs from US cities to Mexico in order to capitalize on cheap labor and the lack of binding arbitration laws South of the border at the expense of the US labor pool whose sweat equity built those companies from mom and pop operations to transnational giants.
Ignoring the fact that the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires US law enforcement to go after US employers who hire illegal aliens�and to prosecute them�Calderon protested the increase in raids by Immigration Control and Enforcement [ICE] agents on US employers hiring illegal aliens in violation of US law. Calderon said that what Bush is doing is "...little more than a faint nod" to his responsibility to enforce US immigration law. (Calderon might be surprised to know that 78% of the American people agree with that assessment. Bush is not even coming close to doing his job.) In his speech Calderon complained that The Department of Homeland Security was sending out notices to US employers that the Social Security Administration was sending notices informing employers of non-matches between employees' names and their Social Security numbers. The employer must resolve the discrepancies with 90 days or be forced to fire the employee�or face a $10,000 fine for knowingly employing an illegal alien. (Author's note: I wonder if Social Security will be sending the mismatch list to the US government since the Bush-43 Administration is the nation's largest employer of illegal aliens?)
Bill Clinton-appointed US District Court Judge Maxine Chesney issued a temporary restraining order requested by the AFL-CIO (which now represents the right of illegal aliens to take your job), the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Immigration Law Center (a Hispanic rights group) barring Homeland Security from forcing employers to fire illegal aliens. The suit argued that the letter from Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff to the employers was an effort to pressure business owners to fire workers whose documents had been flagged for discrimination. The judge, whom CNN anchor Lou Dobbs observed acted more like she was an employee of the Mexican government than a sitting US federal judge, like many of the judges appointed by both Clinton and former President Jimmy Carter have trouble following the Constitution, and simply ignore federal law when it gets in the way of their social agendas. In this case, the law in question has been on the books for 21 years. Of course, the entire federal government found it convenient to ignore the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 for 21 years, too.
Calderon did not mention it in his speech that Chertoff warned that his agency will not tolerate interference by sanctuary cities when it comes to checking the legal status of job applicants and turning a blind eye to hiring illegal aliens. "We are exploring our legal options," Chertoff told a House panel on Wed., Sept. 5, "I intend to take as vigorous legal action as the law allows to prevent that from happening�prevent that kind of interference. I don't know if I have the authority to cut off Homeland Security funds [to those cities] if I disagree [with their] policy on immigration. And, I have to say the consequence of that might be to put the citizens at risk, you know, in the event of a natural disaster. I don't want to put people's lives at risk, but I do think where the law gives me the power to prevent anybody from interfering with our activities, we will use the law to prevent that interference." The sanctuary cities Chertoff referred to are: Baltimore, Dallas, Denver, Miami, Minneapolis, Newark, New Haven, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington, DC.
The Nazification of Europe began with Hitler's argument that wherever German people live, they live on German soil. (Sound familiar? If not, reread the first paragraph.) Hitler positioned himself as the injured party in a scrape with Europe over land seized from Germany at the end of World War I.
Calderon's speech suggests�and, in the United States, the overt action of the National Council of La Raza, the League of United Latin American Citizens [LULAC], the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund [MALDEF] and the Moviemiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (the most radical of all of the Hispanic groups)�that Mexico has claimstaked all of the land Mexico ceded to the United States in the Treaty of Guadeloupe Hidalgo, signed between the United States and Mexico at the end of the Mexican-American War on Feb. 2, 1848. The land ceded to the United States included all of what is now California, Nevada and Utah and parts of what is now Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming�or 525,000 square miles of what is now some of the most valuable real estate in the Western United States. Simply put, Mexico�or the Hispanic advocacy groups causing civil unrest in the southwest�wants the land back. They view the citizens of the United States, not the illegal aliens flooding across the border in an unbroken stream, as the squatters.
On Sept. 2, Calderon continued his televised tirade against the United States by saying: "We strongly protest the unilateral measures taken by the US Congress and government that have only persecuted and exacerbated the mistreatment of Mexican undocumented workers. The insensitivity towards those who support the US economy and society has only served as an impetus to reinforce the battle...for their rights," adding "where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico...Mexico does not end at its borders."
Like Hitler did to England, Calderon is doing to America. Calderon is confident that even if Bush engages in media saber-rattling, the the weak-knee sissies who control both the House and Senate will hold the cowboy in check since the US military is not in a position to fight another war�particularly when this one would be on the US-Mexican border. Calderon is confident that the United States will do what England did in 1939�make even more concessions. Tough talk, Hitler discovered from 1937 to 1939, gets tangible results. Hitler's conquest of Europe began before the first shots were ever fired. Conquest begins with the concessions of men afraid to call the bluff.
