On February 5th, 2007, it was announced in the Mexican media
that three members of the Mexican Congress would be traveling to Washington to work with Hispanic and other members of the U.S. Congress to craft changes in U.S. immigration policy.
The three Mexican congressmen, one from each of the three major parties,
plan to fly from Mexico City to Washington on February 6th (Tuesday). On Wednesday (February the 7th) they are scheduled to meet with both Democratic and Republican congressional representatives. On Thursday the 8th the Mexican congressmen are to meet with U.S. representatives Joe Baca, Luis B. Gutierrez, Hilda Solis
and Nancy Pelosi.
The goal is work toward a migratory accord before the U.S. presidential elections advance any further.
Other plans are to meet with Mexican diplomats,
diplomats of other countries, Mexican organizations in the U.S., and to fly to Chicago and visit Elvira Arellano,
an illegal alien
holed up in a Methodist church.
Need I point out that this is blatant meddling in U.S. internal politics, and should not be tolerated?
What can we say about our U.S. congressional members who are hosting them?
And what of our president, what does he have to say about it? Would a president who cares about our sovereignty allow this?
