"Mexico ... threatened to take legal action against the United States for failing to protect its citizens after [the] mass shooting in the border city of El Paso," NBC News reported Aug. 4. "Of the 20 people gunned down at a Walmart adjacent to the Cielo Vista Mall, at least seven were Mexican citizens, and Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard promised Mexico City will act."

The complaint is hypocritically ironic on four levels.

The government of Mexico encourages and abets in the deliberate violation of U.S. immigration laws. If we tried to emulate and enforce supposedly strict Mexican immigration laws, the "open borders" crowd would go nuts and deem it racist and xenophobic. And contrary to Ebrard's claim, demographics not withstanding, El Paso is not a "binational" city, it's an American one, and the "supreme law" is still the Constitution. ........

"A parable about a mote and a beam comes to mind. That and the terrifying realization of what the socialists culturally terraforming the Founders' Republic intend to turn us into."
