April 27 (Bloomberg) -- Mexicans in Arizona should carry documentation and “act carefully” after the state passed a law requiring local police to determine the immigration status of anyone suspected of being in the country illegally, Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said.
The ministry said the warning is directed toward Mexicans living, studying or planning to travel to the southwestern U.S. state, which shares a border with northern Mexico, according to the e-mailed statement sent today. It comes as members of U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration said they have concerns about the new law and may seek to overturn it in court.
“There is an adverse political environment for migrant communities and all Mexican visitors,” Mexico’s ministry said. “It’s important to act carefully and respect the local laws.”
They say it's important to act carefully and respect the local laws...
That just sounds like good common sense and normal to me.
This whole explosive response to the law is stupid. The people who are whining about this are more concerned about their own comfort and convenience than they are about security and fair play.
So what if they are profiled, when Arizona gets a handle on the illegals and our borders are secured, things will quiet down and go to a normal, quiet, peaceful coexistence ..
All of this talk about individual rights 'not to be bothered', when we have a big problem on our hands is ridiculous..
I know its a pain for the legals and citizens of mexican descent to have to deal with, but we have to deal with the problem and the feds won't do it, so I personally believe Arizona has a right to address the problem and if some people are inconvenienced, they are not going to deny them their rights, if, indeed that do have rights, they are just going to check them out.
If we had a problem among the caucasians I'd be happy to deal with it to weed them out...
Stop the whining.
