Mexican immigration rules!

There are many things wrong with Mexico, but there is at least one area in which Mexico is clearly better than the United States. That is its immigration laws. Mexican immigration laws are practically everything that conservatives could want. An article by J. Michael Weller in Human Events details their policies:

"Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are:

in the country legally;
have the means to sustain themselves economically;
not destined to be burdens on society;
of economic and social benefit to society;
of good character and have no criminal records; and
contributors to the general well-being of the nation.

The law also ensures that:

immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;
foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;
foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;
foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;
foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;
those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison."

There is much more. Read it all.

Let's leave the illegal immigrants in Mexico and import Mexican immigration laws instead.

Larry Elder wrote practically the same thing a month ago.

Mexico is really being hypocritical in their demands.
