Mexico Doesn't Like Georgia's New Law - Too Bad

According to an article from the BBC, Mexican officials are not pleased with the state of Georgia's new immigration law.

"Presidential spokesman Ruben Aguilar said the legislation discriminated against Mexicans and that diplomats would monitor how it was applied."

"The referred legislation incurs discriminatory acts against the Mexican population and those of Mexican origin," Mr Aguilar said. "It is a partial measure that fails to resolve the complex phenomenon of immigration between Mexico and the United States in an integral manner."

Well boo-freakin'-hoo! This has nothing to do with immigrants - it is about ILLEGAL immigrants (aka illegal aliens, undocumented workers). No one is discriminating against Mexicans that are here legally. Those claiming such are simply using the hispanic race card to bolster support for amnesty.

Has anyone thought about how amnesty for illegal aliens would be discriminatory to those that are legal immigrants? How about discrimination against those of us that are American citizens by birth?

I am proud that my state has taken a stand on illegal immigration. Now if only the other 49 or the federal government would do the same.
