The Saga Continues

OC blogger and Bear Flag League member, The Great Satan, has some interesting news regarding the immigrant protest front.

Many have argued that Mexicans aren't assimilating to the culture as previous generations of immigrants have. I argue that it's quite the contrary. They have clearly displayed the type of behavior typical of the upcoming generation of Americans. They're very aware of their freedom and "rights and entitlements" here. How much more American can you get?

And apparently, immigrants to Mexico could never have gotten away with similar demonstrations. Gabe at The Great Satan explains why:

I've always harped on the fact that Mexico treats its own immigrants like crap, and its illegal ones even worse, now a study is out that explains just how badly.

For example, according to an official translation published by the Organization of American States, the Mexican constitution includes the following restrictions:

* Pursuant to Article 33, "Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country." This ban applies, among other things, to participation in demonstrations and the expression of opinions in public about domestic politics like those much in evidence in Los Angeles, New York and elsewhere in recent days.

So under Mexico's "constitution" the LA Protestors would have been in violation of the Mexican Constitution.
