Michelle Malkin’s column today exposes the police state to our south known as Mexico and discusses how Mexico treats illegal aliens within its borders.  She starts with a letter to the Arizona Republic that said:

“Having traveled into Mexico last year to various cities on the Baja Peninsula, a distance of more than 1,000 miles round-trip, we were stopped more than 20 times at various checkpoints. At most of those stops, we were told to exit the vehicle and we were subjected to rigorous inspections. Where does Mexican President Felipe Calderón get off with his hypocritical outrage at our Senate Bill 1070?”

Here are a few gems from Michelle’s column:

“Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years’ imprisonment.  Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment . . . . illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years’ imprisonment. . . . Mexico’s National Catalog of Foreigners tracks all outside tourists and foreign nationals. A National Population Registry tracks and verifies the identity of every member of the population, who must carry a citizens’ identity card. Visitors who do not possess proper documents and identification are subject to arrest as illegal aliens.”
