New on DVD!

Fox News reports today:

LOS ANGELES — Critics of illegal immigration say America's borders have always been too easy to cross, and now one Mexican state is trying to make it easier than ever.

The state of Yucatan (search) has issued a new 87-page handbook that tells people how to get across the U.S. border illegally. The guide, which has an accompanying DVD, contains a section on how to apply for a lawful visa but the remaining 50-plus pages are filled with instructions about how to safely sneak into the United States, then blend in.

Representative J. D. Hayworth R-Ariz. insists they "cease and desist" and I couldn't agree more. This takes us back to my post "Keeping Fox Out of the Hen House" on Thursday March 17. The Mexican government does not have the economy necessary for it's own citizens to thrive, or in many cases even survive, so they will use any means necessary to make sure that the problem of taking care of them rest solely on the shoulders of the United States government.

The story continues:

The newest guide also tells immigrants where to find health care, how to get their kids into U.S. schools and how to send money home — the reason some say Mexico is encouraging people to come to the United Sates illegally.

"This is really the way they keep their corrupt system afloat, by sending their excess workers to the United States and getting billions of dollars in remittances every year ... so for them this is a worthwhile investment," said Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

I believe we should have cordial relations with our neighbors when possible and practical, but this is outrageous. The United States should not bear the responsibility of providing benefits of any kind to those who would enter our borders illegally, and we should not stand idly by and allow this to occur. Mexican President Vicente Fox was recently quoted as saying "No country that is proud of itself should build walls... it doesn't make any sense." What a crock! He doesn't want the wall built because he apparently feels it is our responsibility to provide for his people. I say, build the wall and make it tall!

That's My View... What's Yours?
