Do notgive your tourist dollars to Mexico !
Spendthem in the beautiful American Southwest !
Mexico has become increasingly aggressive and hostile to the United States and
disrespectful of our laws.• It has demanded amnesty for all Mexicans who enter
the U.S. illegally.• It demands that the U.S. increase quotas for legal immigration
by Mexicans so that Mexico can ship its surplus population to the U.S.•
According to a Pew Hispanic Center poll, 21% of Mexican adults say they plan to
come to the U.S. even if they have to do so illegally.• According to the DHS,
70% of the illegal aliens now in the U.S. are from Mexico• No other country in
the world behaves towards the U.S. with such insolence and arrogance.• And
within Mexico, violence is more pervasive than ever.
In light of these undisputed facts,
AMERICANS UNITEDTO HALT TOURISM IN MEXICO (AUHTM)
hereby urges all Americans to avoid Mexico as a tourism destination,
whether for a night of partying, a day stop on an ocean cruise, a weekend of off-roading, a
week of studying archeological ruins, or two weeks at a luxury resort. There are many
wonderful people in Mexico, and we regret the negative effects – hopefully short-term – this
may have on them. We count on them to demand better, more civilized behavior on the part of
their own government.
We urge that all Americans adhere to this boycott until the Mexican
government meets the following demands. The Mexican government must:
1. Cease all attempts to interfere with enforcement of U.S. immigration law.
2. Cease all attempts to influence U.S. immigration legislation.
3. Cease all financial support of individuals and organizations in the U.S.
that protect, harbor, or provide services to illegal aliens in the U.S.
4. Cease the issuance ofmatriculas consulares to Mexican citizens residing
illegally in the U.S.
5. Reimburse annually to the U.S. federal and state governments, 50% of the
costs of encarceration of Mexican illegal aliens in U.S. prisons and jails.
6. Cease encouraging Mexican citizens to enter the U.S. illegally and giving
them advice as to how to escape detection once here.
AUHTM is a coalition of peaceful, law-abiding organizations working toward the halting of illegal immigration, attrition of the illegal alien
population by enforcement, and reduction of the U.S. population growth rate. A pdf of this flyer, with suggestions for its use, may be
found at the following websites:http://www.sandiegominutemen.com and http://ccir.net/ Organizations interested in joining this
coalition should contact Francisco Serrano at : firstname.lastname@example.org.
The “Boycott Mexico !!” Campaign
AMERICANS UNITED TO HALT TOURISM IN MEXICO (AUHTM)
There is an abundance of information available
on the hostility of the Mexican government
toward the United States over matters of
immigration and on the serious problems posed
to the U.S. by illegal immigration and by high
and economically and environmentally
unsustainable levels of legal immigration. This is
readily available on the websites of
organizations such as: NumbersUSA,
Federation for American Immigration Reform,
Californians for Population Stabilization, Center
for Immigration Studies, Negative Population
Growth, and Carrying Capacity Network, to
name just a few of the larger or national ones.
The AUHTM Campaign is designed to allow the
American people to confront the Mexican
government and Mexican people directly on
these issues. The incompetence of the White
House and U.S. Congress to do their jobs in this
area is well known and leaves concerned and
well-informed Americans few alternatives.
At least initially, the key element in this
campaign is the “Boycott Mexico !!” flyer which is
self-explanatory. A pdf of it will be available on
increasing numbers of websites that you can
use for printing out or sending copies by
reference to a url. Here are a few ways this can
be used – by computer activists, by street
activists, by political activists, by immigration
reform organizations, by educational
organizations, by environmental groups, and so
1. Simplydistribute the flyer (or a url for it) via
email or paper copy to everyone you know –
friends, relatives, co-workers, and organizations
to which you belong. Across the whole country.
2. If you distribute paper copies, you couldprint
supplementary information on the back.This
could include excerpts from articles or op-eds on
the issue, statistical information, quotes of
hostile statements from the Mexican
government, lists of websites and other sources
of information on the issue. Eventually some
such materials, all formatted for such a purpose,
will be made available on participating websites.
3.Stop by several tourist agencies in your
areaand leave multiple copies of the flyer at
each one, if they are at all receptive. Tell them
that we do not expect them to do anything that
would hurt their own business. Just ask them to
consider the issue. And, perhaps when they
have a client who would be just as happy with a
trip to Costa Rica or Puerto Rico – or Arizona or
New Mexico! – they could nudge them away
4. Go into the lion’s den andconfront the
Mexican consulate, if there is one in your area.
Give the flyer to consular officials, demand the
Mexican government back off, demand the
consulate stop aiding and abetting illegal
immigration by issuingmatriculas consulares.
5. Get some fellow activists together,prepare
some good signs, and picket the Mexican
consulateon a sidewalk or other public space
in its vicinity. Display your signs to passing
vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Hand out copies
of the flyer to pedestrians; chat them up. The
flyer itself could be printed up into large 2 ft x 3 ft
signs. Display position is always critical. Other
sign possibilities: Don’t Spend Your Tourist
Dollars in Mexico; SAY NO to Mexican
Lebensraum Movement; Mexico, Bad Neighbor,
Aggressor Nation; Boycott Mexico Tourism;
Hostile Mexican Consulates Unwelcome;
Repatriate Mexican Consuls; John McCain,
Lackey of Calderon; SAY NO to the Matricula
Mafiosi; Tour Mexico – and Die; Mexican
Agression,¡Basta!; Close Criminal Mexican
Consulates, ¡Si se puede!; etc.
6.Organize similar demonstrations when
Mexican government officialsvisit or give
public addresses in your area.
7.Visit or contact the local, state, and federal
politicianswho represent you and ask them to
take actions appropriate to their position that will
help protect the U.S. against Mexican political
aggression. Give them and their staff members
the flyer and ask them to personally refrain from
tourism in Mexico.
8.Join and/or support a few of the
immigration reform organizations– whether
they are members of the AUHTM coalition or not
– who are working on your behalf. Stand up for
the future of our children and grandchildren!
