This Week in Open Borders America: Mexico Won’t Take Migrants Back

Mexico adds more troubles for Texas, and illegal immigrants have 2A rights.

Mexico Will Not Accept Migrants From Texas

The illegal immigration crisis in Texas just keeps getting muddier. As fast as the Lone Star State can implement a rule, the Biden administration is there to challenge it. Senate Bill 4, the newest proposed law, would make it so that officials can arrest and deport undocumented migrants at the state level instead of depending on federal assistance and governance. We watched as it bounced around in the court system, first being shot down, then approved, and then, as of Thursday, March 21, it was put on hold.

Even if SB4 is eventually approved, Texas will have difficulties deporting immigrants to Mexico. The country’s top diplomat for North America, Roberto Velasco Álvarez, does not approve of the proposed bill, arguing that immigration policy should be negotiated between federal governments. Mexico’s foreign ministry said they will not accept deportations made by the Lone Star State “under any circumstances.” Rafael Fernández de Castro, director of the Center for US-Mexican studies at the University of California, San Diego, stated:

“Texas has taken a very combative stance. It’s only aggravating the problem because you violently close one part of the border, but others are still open.”

Meanwhile, some of the charter bus companies used to transport migrants to New York have decided not to do so for the time being. This came as NYC’s mayor, Eric Adams, filed a lawsuit against the bus companies.

“I am pleased to see that Roadrunner – one of the bus companies we sued for taking part in Texas Governor Abbott’s scheme to transport tens of thousands of migrants to our city in an attempt to overwhelm our shelter system and shift costs to New York City – has agreed to halt the bussing of migrants into and around New York City while the lawsuit proceeds,” Adams said in a statement. “We call on all other bus companies involved in this suit to do the same,” he continued. “Reckless political games from the state of Texas will not be tolerated.”

On Thursday, March 21, hundreds of migrants, reportedly upset with Texas’ SB4, stormed the border, further escalating the already tense situation at the wall.

Illegal Aliens Allowed to Carry Guns

At least one illegal immigrant can carry a gun, according to the Supreme Court. After Heriberto Carbajal-Flores was found carrying a semi-automatic pistol in Chicago in 2020, the government banned him from carrying a firearm. That ban was challenged, however, and US District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman ruled to dismiss the case on March 8. “The noncitizen possession statute, 18 U.S.C. § 9 22(g)(5), violates the Second Amendment as applied to Carbajal-Flores,” Judge Coleman, appointed under President Barack Obama, wrote in her eight-page ruling. “Thus, the court grants Carbajal-Flores’ motion to dismiss.”

The government opposed the dismissal, referring to a 2023 ruling that stated Second Amendment rights do not pertain to illegal migrants. Furthermore, the government pointed out several laws that prohibited certain categories of people from carrying firearms, including “individuals who threatened the social order through their untrustworthy adherence to the rule of law,” The Epoch Times explained. Coleman, though, said that Carbajal-Flores had never been convicted of a felony or any crime involving a weapon and that he used the handgun solely for protection of himself and his property.

Larry Keane, a lawyer for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, wrote on X, “Supreme Court has said the ‘people’ are members of the political community. Illegal aliens in US are not part of the political community and thus do not have 2A rights.” Another lawyer, Matthew Larosiere, disagreed. He argued that people in the US illegally are still part of “the people” in regards to the Second Amendment, referencing the 14th Amendment that applies to “any person within” the country:

“To find that illegal immigrants are outside of ‘the people’ protected by the Second Amendment, you must believe that the Framers were talking about a different ‘people’ in the First, Fourth, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments.”

If the decision is upheld, then Carbajal-Flores will be able to get a concealed carry permit as well, which also means more migrants might be legally carrying firearms in America. However, Kostas Moras, a lawyer for the California Rifle and Pistol Association, told The Epoch Times that the decision will likely be overturned, saying, “it’s an outlier, a number of courts have said the opposite.”
