We are moving to Mexico

Dear Mr. President, Senate and House of

I'm planning to move my family and extended family
(18-20 mouths) into Mexico for my health, and I would like
to ask you to assist me.

We're planning to simply walk across the border from
the U.S. into Mexico , and we'll need your help to make a
few arrangements.

We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports,
immigration quotas and laws. I'm sure they handle those
things the same way you do here.

So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Calderon,
that I'm on my way over? Please let him know that I will
be expecting the following:

1. Free medical care for my entire family.

2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services
I might need, whether I use them or not.

3. All Mexico government forms need to also be printed in

4. I want my kids to be taught Spanish, by English-speaking
(bi-lingual) teachers.

5. Schools need to include classes on American culture and

6. I want my kids to see the American flag on one of the
flag poles at their school.

7. Please plan to feed my kids at school for both breakfast
and lunch.

8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I
can get easy access to government services.

9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico , but, I
don't plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably
won't make any special effort to learn local traffic

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get
the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be
sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking

11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my house top, put U.S.
flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on
July 4th.

I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any
taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any
business I may start.

13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people
to be extremely nice and never say a critical things about
me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their

I know this is an easy request because you already do all
these things for all his people who come to the U.S. From
Mexico . I am sure that President Calderon won't mind
returning the favor if you ask him nicely.

Thank you so much for your kind help.

HOMELAND SECURITY? Here's What It Looks Like In Los Angeles!

Immigration Officials Arrest 300 in California
LOS ANGELES — Nearly 300 illegal immigrants who had committed serious crimes were deported or detained this week by federal agents in a demonstration of what immigration officials pledged was a new resolve to zero in on the most egregious lawbreakers.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials called the three-day sweep in California their largest operation ever aimed at illegal immigrants with criminal records.
More than 80 percent had convictions for serious or violent crimes and at least 100 have been removed from the country, with the others awaiting deportation proceedings.
John Morton, an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security who is in charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said Friday that focusing on serious criminals helped improve public safety.
“These are not people who we want walking our streets,” Mr. Morton said at a news conference here, a day after Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano made much the same point at a Congressional hearing.
The Department of Homeland Security has been criticized by immigrant advocates and civil libertarians in recent years for rounding up hundreds of people whose only offense was being in the country without proper documents, sometimes at the cost of breaking up families.
President Obama had campaigned on a promise of a more compassionate approach to immigration enforcement that would focus on ridding the country of felons and cracking down on employers who deliberately hire illegal workers.
Mr. Morton, citing limited resources, said, “We are going to focus on those people who choose to pursue a life of crime in the United States rather than pursue the American dream of education, hard work and success.”
Last year, 136,126 illegal immigrants with criminal records were deported, a record number, officials said. While department officials trumpeted the mass arrests this week, they could not say how many serious criminal offenders who are in the country illegally remain on the streets.
The Immigrants’ Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union reacted skeptically to the announcement, noting that despite assurances that serious criminals were the target, previous sweeps have turned out to capture large numbers of people with no such records.
“We would welcome more effective targeting than in the past but it is not yet clear that is the case here,” said Caroline Cincotta, a fellow at the project, who also questioned whether the swift deportations had allowed people to have full due process.
ICE officials said just six of those arrested had no record at all, and they sought to play up the serious nature of the offenses of those who were apprehended.
Those arrested included a Guatemalan man with ties to a Los Angeles gang who had committed first-degree robbery, a Mexican man convicted of lewd acts with a child and a Mexican man with a rape conviction.
Of the 286 people arrested, 63 had previously been deported. At least 17 face prosecution for re-entering the country without proper documents.
The agents and officers tracked down most of those arrested through tips and a review of immigration files, court and public records. Many people arrested this week were never deported after serving prison time for their offenses because they fell through the cracks.
Mr. Morton said the immigration agency was improving cooperation with local and state jailers, and is rolling out a “Secure Communities” program that by 2012 is expected to permit all local jails nationwide to check the immigration status of inmates.
The deportees represented 31 countries, though the majority, 207, were from Mexico.
