In the US there is no end of groups that seek to protect the rights of illegal aliens on US soil. The groups have nationwide marches on May 5th, assemble in front of local, State, and federal buildings during key votes, and have several large lobbying groups in Washington D.C. They claim, in general, that the Rights of citizens must extend to those that have broken the law and violated the nation. Oddly, those same groups apparently do not extend their concern to Mexico.
For various reasons, most notably the economic decline in the US, tens of thousands of Mexican illegal aliens that have had children born on US soil have returned to Mexico. The children are US citizens by birth. Due to Mexican legal requirements, these children are being denied health care even at public hospitals. They can’t go to school either. Where is the outrage?
Some 500,000 US-born children with a Mexican parent are being denied the very things that so many Liberal organizations demand the US Government provide. Whatever the opinion of US citizens about illegal aliens, there is no shortage of media bombarding them to take action to ensure children of illegal aliens are taken care of. Why is it that there is no widespread concern for US kids in Mexico? Why isn’t the Mexican government receiving the same daily and media inundating reaction?
This is not about whether US immigration law should be changed. The question is about the larger issue. That an apparent bias, against the US, is actively allowed. That Liberal organizations are willing to turn a cold blind eye to issues that don’t exactly match their concerns. That hypocrisy is welcome, as long as it fills an agenda.
If the argument is that children should never be denied a Right of health care and education, that to do so is both inhumane and uncivilized – arguments that often surround a discussion of US immigration law – then why are these groups silent about the plight of US-born children in another nation? Why is it that these groups are not bringing their considerable monetary and political might to bear against Mexico?
It brings to mind a serious question: Do these groups believe that a Mexican illegal alien child is more worthy of help and health care than a US illegal alien child? How can the US be draconian in its immigration laws, as compared to the world, yet the main source of US illegal aliens, Mexico, is ignored as it provides even less to US child citizens?
We understand there is no simple solution to such a complex situation. Even so, we find it perplexing that the very argument used to justify political advocacy in the US seemingly ceases to be an argument worth discussing beyond the borders of America. We would expect that this would be a source of inspiration and a rally call to the US pro-illegal alien movement. Instead it is less than an afterthought.
Again, as this is the apparent case, what does this really mean about the pro-illegal alien cause?
We don’t have the answer, and we are certainly willing to hear those offered by the pro-illegal alien organizations, but until then we find it worthwhile to ponder.
