As protests and riots continue across the country, many of those who have been granted stays from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program, have been appearing in these demonstrations, in an attempt to align themselves with Black Lives Matter. And, some of those the left has dubbed “DREAMERS,” have recently been arrested for taking part in the violence.
For instance, two weeks ago, DACA recipient Maxima Guerrero, was arrested during a violent protest in Phoenix. She is described by ABC 15, “as a community organizer and pro-immigration activist with Puente Human Rights Movement.”
Guerrero claims that she was merely riding in a car and pulled out and arrested “for no reason.”
However, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams told reporters why those automobiles were being stopped: “Those cars were used to fortify and give rocks and water bottles, food to those individuals who were there to commit crime and damage, to do dangerous things to our community.”
Whether or not Guerrero was delivering projectiles to be hurled at police officers, or she was merely there to “observe,” as claimed by the Puente Human Rights Movement, her activities in this country are, at the very least, incredibly hypocritical.
You see, Guerrero is a Mexican national, who admits to being fully engaged in the “political affairs” of this country.
Why is that hypocritical?
Because, Guerrero is not a citizen, and in Mexico, such activities by non-citizens are considered crimes.
The Mexican Constitution forbids foreign nationals from participating in that country’s politics. In fact, non-citizens cannot take part in a public demonstration or even a peaceful protest without risking arrest.
Article 9 of the Mexican Constitution states: “The right to peacefully associate or assembly for any licit purpose cannot be restricted. Only citizens of the Republic may take part in the political affairs of the country.”
Article 33 of the Mexican Constitution states: “Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.”
With each passing day, it is becoming painfully obvious that law-abiding Americans are not only being abandoned by their own government, at every level, but are now viewed by the rest of the world as nothing more than suckers.
If the aforementioned statement was not true, people here illegally would not feel that they are somehow entitled to participate in activity from which U.S. citizens would be banned in their home countries.
