Is Article 67 is Mexico's version of SB 1070


(Mexico DEMANDS that foreigners prove they are not an illegal alien. Mexico is doing exactly what the US should be doing. The US should DEMAND that ALL illegal aliens, including barack obama, prove they are not illegal aliens!) Story Reports

Article 67 reads, “Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal, are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues.”

Mexican officials have recently criticized Arizona's immigration law, but they've been less vocal about their own immigration laws and practices. Under Mexican law, Article 67 reads, “Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal, are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues.”

James Kelly is an American tourist who recently visited the Mexican resort city of Cancun. Kelly says, “I got stopped on the street and asked for my I.D.” When asked if he felt he was being racially profiled, Kelly said, “absolutely not. It was making sure the good tourists weren't going to be in any trouble.”

Bruce Greenberg is an American business owner with 26 offices throughout Mexico. He’s been traveling to Mexico for 50 years and says no police officer has ever randomly asked for his identification. Greenberg believes Mexican and American immigration laws are more similar than you think.

“The process is identical. You have to have proper identification” said Greenberg. When asked if he had a problem with the idea of showing his identification while in Mexico, Greenberg said “No, nor in the United States.”
