La Voz de Aztlan news release: Mexican Migrant Leaders Launch Tri-national Initiative

Angered by what they perceive as a hardening US stance on immigration-related issues, Mexicans from a variety of political forces are mobilizing to support migrants north of their border. For the first time, leaders of Mexican immigrants residing in the US and Canada convened a meeting in the Mexican capital to demand stronger action from the government of President Felipe Calderon. Held November 16-17, the sometimes raucous First Parliament of Mexican Migrant Leaders attracted nearly 600 participants. Twenty Mexican legislators from different political parties and representatives of the National Migration Institute (INM) were on hand for the proceedings.

Fired up by the mounting deportations of undocumented Mexicans from the US, some activists at the Mexico City meeting called on the Calderon administration to cease trade, investment, anti-crime and security negotiations with the US until Washington puts a moratorium on immigration law enforcement raids and deportations.

"Immigration reform and a path to citizenship could be the next steps to take," said Ema Lozano, president of the Chicago-based Centro Sin Fronteras. "What's urgent at this moment is to negotiate a halt to deportations."

According to the Mesoamerican Migrant Movement, about 22,000 people are deported from the United States to Mexico every month.

The Calderon administration's posture on migration issues is coming under increasing fire from across the Mexican political spectrum. Even Jorge Castañeda, a former Fox administration foreign minister, has criticized the Calderon government for allegedly not doing enough on the migrant question.

President Calderon is urging US presidential candidates to refrain from turning migrants into "hostages" of the 2008 election, but his administration is negotiating an expanded anti-drug control agreement with Washington in addition to stepping up border controls in both the north and south of Mexico.

In Mexico City, migrant leaders agreed to constitute the parliament as a permanent organization not tied to any particular political party. Unveiled at the meeting, the so-called Missouri Plan proposes to exclusively reserve ten new seats for deputies and two new seats for senators in the Mexican Congress for Mexican migrants living abroad. Parliament members likewise urged the Mexican federal government to establish a cabinet-level ministry of migrant affairs.

Other goals outlined at the meeting included promoting the political participation of migrants in both US and Mexican elections, and earmarking one cent of every dollar in remittances for a fund set up to help pay the healthcare costs of migrant children in the US. In a solemn moment, First
Prior to the meeting, Arellano said she was organizing a network of migrant relatives to make the immigration issue a political priority in Mexico.
Parliament participants observed one minute of silence for the nearly 400 people who have died trying to cross the US border this year.

Federal Congressman Jose Edmundo Martinez of the Institutional Revolutionary Party characterized the gathering as a "watershed" event that could force more official attention on the migrant issue.

An unscheduled speech by deported US immigration activist Elvira Arellano drew sharp rebukes from some attendees but enthusiastic responses from others. Arellano announced she was commencing a hunger strike November 16 to protest US immigration policies and to pressure the Calderon government into taking a tougher stand with Washington. She said the hunger strike would last until December 12, the Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico. Echoing calls to halt negotiations with Washington until the immigration issue has been addressed, a tearful Arellano contended that Mexico could not economically or socially absorb an estimated 6 million Mexicans who face deportation from the US.

"Our government has remained silent as we are treated like criminals and terrorists in the United States," Arellano said. "When a mother, a child or a worker is deported, our government is silent."

Objecting to Arellano's speech, federal Deputy Maria Dolores Gonzalez Sanchez, of the conservative National Action Party, blasted the migrant parliament for supposedly being a political show staged by the center-left Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD). Evoking catcalls, Gonzalez labeled the meeting "a PRD spectacle and an insult to national sovereignty."

In another pro-migrant event, practitioners of two distinct musical genres banded together on November 18 for a massive concert attended by an estimated 150,000 people in the northern Mexican city of Monterrey. Sharing the bill were the norteño balladeers Los Tigres del Norte, and the Jaguares hard rock legends.

"With their songs Paisano and Cage of Gold, among others, Los Tigres del Norte address the theme of migration in a timely manner," said Katzir Meza, cultural events director for the Monterrey Universal Cultures Forum 2007. "(Jaguares) has a record of participation. Both groups have contributed to migration, human rights and justice causes."

The Tigres/Jaguares mega-concert was preceded by a Monterrey dialogue on migrant issues moderated by TV Azteca national news host Javier Solorzano.

She is a criminal. She came to America illegally, got her ass deported once, came back and gave birth to to an anchor child, used stolen identification to get work in Chicago, then ran to a sanctuary church to hide when ICE instructed her to turn herself in for deportation.

I'm hispanic, but of Puerto Rican decent. My peeps were given citizenship and MIGRATED to the mainland legally. (A lot of people say we IMMIGRATED, but we didn't. We MIGRATED here.) Since my peeps were treated as IMMIGRANTS/Foreigners, I'm all for LEGAL IMMIGRATION. I do disagree with ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

Why is it that there aren't enough LEGAL AMERICANS willing to support the good people who do make it here? Why is it that their government aren't doing enough to help these people come here LEGALLY. And I don't mean just Mexico as there are many other people from other countries around the world who stay here illegally after their visa has expired. Why is it that our government won't give more visas, if that's the case? I don't understand what's going on, other than a lot of people complaining. There are just so many Mexican Americans, but are they not helping their people at all or is it all for themselves and their immediate family in Mexico?

And should Americans keep quiet over the crime being committed by some illegals? We have enough of our own crime, we don't want or need more of others.

Surely people from other countries would say, "Look what your people did to our country?!" Just remember, most Americans do not want war. These wars generally come from the government who represent big interests - not the little peeps like us - just like most wars around the world.

You are exactly correct, she is a felon, and in my opinion should have been put in federal prison, and only then deported.

If Mexicans are "angry" at the "treatment" their citizens are receiving here in the U.S., they can DROP DEAD, and the sooner the better.

It is Americans who are outraged at the arrogance, lawlessness and audacity of the illegal invaders and their supporters.

Felipe Calderon is a shithead who has already aided and abetted the criminals skulking through our deserts to get here.

They need to be physically stopped at the border once and for all. The Border patrol should have the right to shoot them, although i will not go so far as to recommend that.

Solution: Cut off all trade and all communication with Mexico. They are our enemy as surely as Iran, Venezuela and North Korea are.

Puerto Rico is a US Territory - the Republic of Mexico is not. There in is the difference.

What we have here is a matter of scale. If there be 20 Million illegal immigrants in the USA, that means there needs to be 20 Million trials. 20 Million Trials. 20 Million court cases. This is the crux of the entire problem. Should the USA follow its own laws and conduct 20 Million trials on an individual basis, one would wonder or ask how long that could take. It would tie up the courts for decades to come. So the Catch 22 is that even if the USA wanted to honor its own rule of law, in practical terms it cannot because it has been overwhelmed and overrun in a Human wave tactic that would make Victory Charlie proud.
