Mexico’s Constitution and their Harsh Immigration Laws

Posted by FactReal on November 19, 2012

Mexico’s long history of dealing with illegal immigrants in a much harsher manner than the United States. Don’t be fooled by Mexico’s immigration reforms.
Mexico is touting their latest reform to their immigration laws as a way to pressure the U.S. to open its border and pass an amnesty to benefit illegal immigrants living in the U.S. (nearly 60% are from Mexico).

For decades Mexico has been calling our immigration laws unjust and immoral, while their own Mexican immigration laws have been tougher than U.S. law as demonstrated by their 1917 Mexican Constitution which is the one that is still in force today despite the many amendments/reforms.
