..and see how hard it is to bring them back into line. It is that racist United States again, being so mean to the poor Mexicans -

The Mexican government has condemned a tough new immigration law passed in the US state of Georgia on Monday. Presidential spokesman Ruben Aguilar said the legislation discriminated against Mexicans and that diplomats would monitor how it was applied.Yep, those racist Americans again, crushing those poor Mexicans under their imperialist boot heel, can you believe it!! Before we pull out the placards and take to the streets to protest in support of the poor Mexicans, take a look at the actual law, lets see how racist those Georgians are.
"The referred legislation incurs discriminatory acts against the Mexican population and those of Mexican origin," Mr Aguilar said.
"It is a punitive bill," said the president of the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Sara Gonzalez. "This is a very complicated issue, and I don't see any good coming out of this."
The law, which will take effect next year, prevents illegal immigrants from receiving many social services.Huh, if Aguilar has a problem with that, Mexico must be a real paradise then, come on guys lets all pack our bags, by criticising the Georgians, it must stand that Mexico caters to illegals and their numerous social needs, without discrimination. That must be why they are in such a hurry to leave.
It will also require police and employers to report undocumented workers to the Immigration Service.This one should get the support of all on the left, afterall, in their world all employers are blood-thirsty slave masters, exploiting their poor employees for the wretched dollar (anyone remember the recent Australian Industrial Relations hysteria). Allowing employers to hire illegals leaves the door wide open for exploitation, not to mention driving down wages for citizens.
The law, which will take effect in July 2007, will also impose prison terms for human trafficking and limit the services commercial companies can provide to illegal immigrants.I cannot see how, punishing human traffickers, can be a bad thing. Now that we are past the mass wailing from Aguilar and Gonzalez, perhaps we should hear from more reasonable leaders.
Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue, who signed the bill, said it was intended to ensure that everyone who lives in Georgia abides by the laws there.Can't see anything wrong with any of that, the governor is looking out for his citizens, I am quite sure that is what most constituents would expect of their leaders, when they head to the polls. So bring back the rod Sonny, let em whinge and whine.
"It is our responsibility to ensure that our famous Georgia hospitality is not abused, that our taxpayers are not taken advantage of and that our citizens are protected," Mr Perdue.
"I want to make this clear: we are not, Georgia's government is not, and this bill is not anti-immigrant," Gov Perdue said.
