How Do You Say “Chutzpah” in Spanish?

I don’t know how I missed this.

In January a delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora, Mexico came to Tucson to register their complaints about the passage of Arizona’s new law that sanctions employers who knowingly hire undocumented workers ILLEGAL aliens. As a result, many illegal aliens are returning to Sonora, which the Mexican legislators say is having a “devastating effect” on their state.

“How can they pass a law like this?” asked Mexican Rep. Leticia Amparano Gamez, who represents Nogales.

“There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona,” she said in Spanish.

“Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems” it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and sending money to their families return to hometowns in Sonora without jobs, she said.

Let me guess, Señora Amparano Gamez. Is this influx of uneducated, unskilled people into your state taxing its resources, oh, like schools, hospitals and maybe even its prisons? You would like to send them back to where they came from? Your problem is that they are back to where they came from.

The people of Arizona have been dealing with this. Now it’s your turn.

Thanks to Brian, the Air Force Vet.
