Elvira Arellano Shows Her True Colors
August 23, 2007 8 Comments
In this video, recently deported Mexican national Elvira Arellano speaks at a press conference in México City. This after addressing the Mexican Congress (this is my translation of it),
to seek the support of the Mexican Congress, so that this country [México] pushes more forcefully the immigration accord between the [U.S. and México]
During the press conference, Arellano makes a puzzling statement (again my translation),
The United States was the one who violated the the laws first. Why? By allowing undocumented people [this is said in 1st person plural] to go there, by allowing to receive our taxes
I’m confused. So we come over here from Mexico, some do so illegally and thus break U.S. immigration law but it’s the United States who breaks the law because it demands people (who according to U.S. immigration law should be deported) who are pulling an American paycheck to pay taxes?
Taxes which pay for services which all people who reside (legally or illegally) in these United States use and well sometimes, abuse.
It’s beginning to become increasingly clear that Arellano’s “plight” is nothing more than an old song, the refusal to take personal responsibility, in a new key.
I would hate to think that this woman speaks for the majority of my fellow countrymen residing (legally or illegally) here in the United States.
