Evidently, niceties like national sovereignty and laws mean nada to Miss Arellano:
The Mexican government said Tuesday it is talking with U.S. officials about whether a deported illegal entrant and activist could return to the United States.
The entrant, Elvira Arellano, was arrested and sent back to her native Mexico last month after taking refuge in a Chicago church for a year to avoid a deportation order.
Mexican Foreign Secretary Patricia Espinosa said she approached U.S. authorities on Arellano’s behalf after the 32-year-old activist asked Mexican President Felipe Calderon to help her return to the United States legally as a “peace and justice” ambassador…
Arellano said she would not back down from her request and was angered that Mexico was seeking a U.S. visa, adding that the Mexican government should not have to ask permission to send her north of the border.
“I’m not asking for any visa,” she said. “I want a diplomatic post as ambassador of peace and justice, and I won’t accept anything less.”
Yeah, she’s beyond arrogant to be demanding anything, but she’s only following the sentiments that Presidente Calderon himself expressed.
“Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico.”
And if that’s true, Calderon could appoint her “peace and justice” ambassador to the US whether we like it or not.
Of course, it’s not true, and Mexico can’t legally appoint her an ambassador of anything to the US without our permission. But I wouldn’t be surprised if they try.
