Amnesty Bill, Kowtowing to Mexico Only Breeds Contempt

Michelle Malkin's got a new column out today on the despicable treatment meted out to American contestant Rachel Smith at the Miss Universe pageant held this week in Mexico City. She also runs down similar incidents that have taken place in Mexico over the past few years.

This treatment comes even as politicians in both parties continue to push for a massive amnesty bill and in general, do everything possible to let the corrupt and failing Mexican government off the hook in terms of its responsibility to its own people. Unsurprisingly, this constant kowtowing has only increased hostility in Mexico towards the United States.

As has been shown time and time again, whether with the American lack of reaction to Islamic terrorism in the years leading up to 9/11, Israel's continuing capitulation to failing "peace processes," and the gradual erosion of American sovereignty due to out-of-control illegal immigration and open borders, weakness only breeds contempt.

One of these days, someone in power will figure that out.

Nations are not something real. When you look at the world from space, you can't see national boundaries. You can barely see governments.

That's one reason I disregard the claims that we violated Iraq's "sovereignty" or that Muslim Arabs in the imaginary nation of "Palestine" had some kind of right to keep Jews out.
