As noted in a previous post, Ms. Arellano is seeking to return to the United States as a "peace and justice" ambassador under some sort of diplomatic immunity. One would think that being a document fraudster felon might disqualify a person from the post "peace and justice" ambassador, but this is Mexico we're talking about.
The thinking of the Mexican lawyers and activist groups backing this plan is that Arellano would not be deportable under the laws of the United States. She would be free to traipse around the United States, thumb her nose at law enforcement, and laugh in the face of the American taxpayer.
However, President Bush can decide whether or not to officially recognize Arellano; the United States must grant a diplomatic visa. And that's where it gets interesting. How will Bush react to this plan? Will he say anything? Will the President of Mexico demand it?
According to the Associated Press, Ms. Arellano has already made her demands clear:
Arellano said she would not back down from her request and was angered that Mexico was seeking a U.S. visa, adding that the Mexican government should not have to ask permission to send her north of the border.
"I'm not asking for any visa," she said. "I want a diplomatic post as ambassador of peace and justice, and I won't accept anything less."Arellano's arrogance is actually a good thing. She is unknowingly blowing open the simmering conflict between the United States and Mexico while forcing the two governments to take a position. The American public will begin to fully understand Mexico's true intentions, namely the erasure of the U.S.-Mexico border. And we will get a better idea of the White House's vision for the future. If Bush allows Mexico to get its way, then it will solidify the American public against the amnesty-open-border cabal. It will make the demand for border security even greater. And the movement against permissive interpretation of the 14th Amendment (which allows for anchor-babies) might be strengthened as well.
Keep yapping, Ms. Arellano.
