As you may recall, the president of Mexico (Felipe Calderón) lectured the U.S. Congress in 2010 on immigration law, condemning the Arizona law.
That was then, this is what Mexico’s current immigration policy looks like now, under president Enrique Peña Nieto:
- Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society, contributing to national progress. Doctors and engineers, yes. Rapists and murderers, no.
- Mexican authorities must keep track of every single person in the country.
- Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned.
- Foreigners who fail to obey the rules will be fined, deported, and/or imprisoned as felons.
- Under Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony.
- The Mexican constitution expressly forbids non-citizens to participate in the country’s political life.

What do I think of Trump?
A trojan horse a la 1992: A loud-mouthed millionaire formed a third party, and Clinton won.
