Right to Work in Mexico Demanded for U.S. Citizens with Mexico's 4.47% Unemployment Rate
Contact: Jonathon Moseley, Executive Director, American Border Control, 703-656-1230
FAIRFAX, Va., April 15, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- U.S. citizens should have the same right to take jobs in Mexico if the "Gang of Eight's" immigration compromise is enacted, American Border Control is demanding.
"Mexico is playing us for suckers," commented American Border Control's Executive Director Jonathon Moseley. Moseley clarified:
"The error of amnesty is the myth of financial difficulty in Mexico. Yet Mexico's December unemployment rate at 4.47% was lower than U.S. unemployment for years of 8%.”
Moseley further explained:
"Adjusted for purchasing power -- converting dollars into pesos -- the average salary in Mexico is $ 49,574 per year. According to the International Monetary Fund, $1 USD converted into pesos will buy the equivalent of $8.07 within Mexican society. So the nominal average Mexican salary at $6,143 per year in pesos actually can purchase as much in goods and services in Mexico as a $49,574 per year salary buys in the U.S. economy. Obviously, tourist traps are not typical."
Mexico's unemployment rate dropped to 4.7 % in September 2012, reported The Financial Times, October 19, 2012, Adam Thomson, in "Mexico Unemployment Near Four Year Low. www.ft.com/cms/s/0/4be959d4-1a17-11e2-9922-00144feabdc0.html Mexico's unemployment dropped to 4.47% in December and was 4.85% in February, reports Trading Economics. www.tradingeconomics.com/mexico/unemployment-rate
Yet U.S. citizens do not have the same right to work in Mexico as John McCain, Chuck Schumer and liberal Democrats are pushing to give to disrespectful illegal aliens. As reported in The Washington Times on May 3, 2010:
"Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals."
U.S. citizens can be deported from Mexico at any time on pure discretion:
The law also says Mexico can deport foreigners who are deemed detrimental to 'economic or national interests,' violate Mexican law, are not 'physically or mentally healthy' or lack the 'necessary funds for their sustenance' and for their dependents.
Mexico's laws mirror those that Mexico criticizes in the U.S. USA Today reported on May 25, 2010: "Mexico has a law that is no different from Arizona's that empowers local police to check the immigration documents of people suspected of not being in the country legally."
"Those who showed contempt for our country by crashing the gate should not steal jobs from U.S. citizens," Moseley concluded.
