The Embassy of Mexico has announced to Mexican nationals already in America illegally as well as any potential illegal border crossers they should disregard the Obama announcement of the deployment of 1,200 National Guard troops to the U.S. border.
It’s okay. You can remain in America illegally and cross at will into the United States illegally — and send your money back to Mexico. The troop deployment makes no difference on the illegal immigration front.
They don’t even bother to pretend anymore.
In its official statement on the troop deployment, Mexico says that it “… expects the National Guard… will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.”
That blows a big hole in the President’s claims he is sending National Guard troops to assist in securing the border.
Even the Mexican Embassy doesn’t take Obama seriously.
The full statement:
Washington D.C, May 25th, 2010
Regarding the Administration’s decision to send 1,200 National Guard servicemen to the US Southern border, the Government of Mexico trusts that this decision will help to channel additional US resources to enhance efforts to prevent the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.
Additionally, the Government of Mexico expects that National Guard personnel will strengthen US operations in the fight against transnational organized crime that operates on both sides of our common border and that it will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.
Mexico is determined to continue working on its side of the border to enhance the security and well-being of border communities, and to deter and dismantle organized crime and its links to drug trafficking and human smuggling.
As part of our joint strategy in the fight against transnational organized crime, there are actions that our two governments have undertaken together, and there are other measures taken independently by Mexico and by the US within their respective territories. In this regard, the Mexican Government fully respects the sovereign decisions of the US Government, but underscores that joint responsibility must continue to underpin our joint efforts in rolling-back transnational organized crime operating on both sides of the border.
