What is your opinion on tourism ads for Mexico?

Is a tourism ad for Mexico the same as a tourism ad for Detroit, Mi?

    Three cheers for Arizona !!!

    The shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from the State

    of Sonora, Mexico do not like it. Can you believe the nerve of

    these people? It's almost funny.

    The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico.

    Nine state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to

    Tucson to complain about Arizona's new employer crackdown on

    illegals from Mexico. It seems that many Mexican illegals are

    returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state

    government are ticked off.

    A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson

    on Tuesday to state that Arizona's new Employer Sanctions Law

    will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state. At a news

    conference, the legislators said that Sonora, - Arizona's southern

    neighbor - made up of mostly small towns - cannot handle the

    demand for housing, jobs and schools that it will face as Mexican

    workers return to their hometowns from the USA without jobs or


    The Arizona law, which took effect Jan. 1, punishes Arizona

    employers who knowingly hire individuals without valid legal

    documents to work in the United States. Penalties include

    suspension of, or loss of, their business license.

    The Mexican legislators are angry because their own citizens are

    returning to their hometowns, placing a burden on THEIR state

    government. 'How can Arizona pass a law like this?' asked

    Mexican Rep Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales.

    'There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a

    friend or relative working in Arizona ,' she said, speaking in Spanish.

    'Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems it will face as more

    and more Mexicans working in Arizona

    and who were sending money to their families return to their

    home-towns in Sonora without jobs,' she said. 'We are one family,

    socially and economically,' she said of the people of Sonora and


    Wrong! The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary

    of Mexico , and its taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of

    Mexico's citizens. It's time for the Mexican government, and its

    citizens, to stop feeding parasitically off the United States and to

    start taking care of its/their own needs.

    Too bad that other states within the USA don't pass a law just

    like that passed by Arizona. Maybe that's the answer, since our

    own Congress will do nothing!

    New Immigration Laws: Read to the bottom or

    you will miss the message...

    1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.

    2. All ballots will be in this nation's language.

    3. All government business will be conducted in our language.

    4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how

    long they are here.

    5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.

    6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare,

    no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance

    programs. Any burdens will be deported.

    7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount

    at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

    8. If foreigners come here and buy land... options will be restricted.

    Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for

    citizens naturally born into this country.

    9. Foreigners may have no protests; no demonstrations, no waving

    of a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our

    president or his policies. These will lead to deportation.

    10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively

    hunted & when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be

    arranged. All assets will be taken from you.

    Too strict ???

    The above laws are current immigration laws of MEXICO !

    Sheriff Joe is watching on the advert within the flawed approach. Mexicans in Sonora are watching for individuals from AZ when you consider that Mexicans worry them. Most Mexicans don't quite wish to confront a citizen from the US, by no means brain Texas or AZ. Mexico is not going to say sorry, and the advert can not be serving to tourism.

    I wouldn't travel to Mexico right now if you paid me. I would rather vacation in Iraq, which is *less* deadly than Mexico when you compare the number of people who have died there recently.

    The situation has gotten so bad in Mexico that I suspect the only way Calderon can solve things--should he choose to do so--is to become extremely draconian and implement martial law throughout the country. He will have to use all his military resources--the ones that are not already working for the cartels, that is--to fight the cartels.

    This is the only "tourism" ad I need about Mexico:

    "Eight people died early Tuesday after attackers hurled several Molotov cocktails into a Cancun, Mexico, bar"

    You know...Cancun, the tourist area that is "safe" from the cartel violence. It for spring break and FUN! (and getting killed)

    I just returned from Detroit/Dearborn.

    Given the choice, Mexico is where I'll go.

    You'd be better off comparing a single city.

    Michigan has better beaches and the drugs there are stronger.
