MEXICO CITY - In a politically motivated move that has been both applauded and criticized, the government of Mexico has just mandated that all Mexican law enforcement officers have been instructed to stop any and all American tourists and ask to see their drivers licenses.
Mexican President Nacho Winslow has stated that any tourist who is a resident of Arizona will immediately be arrested and incarcerated without bail.
When a reporter asked the president if this was being done in retaliation for Arizona's strict immigration bill, the president had the reporter handcuffed and hauled off to jail for first degree blatant arrogance, which in Mexico is punishable with a fine of $7,000 and eight months in a Federal Prison.
Winslow then asked if there were any more questions. A reporter stood up and asked where he could send a check to the great presidents re-election campaign. President Winslow asked him to come up to the podium.
The reporter did so somewhat hesitantly. The president shook his hand and told him that he would be glad to take his check, but he would much rather prefer cash if he had it. The reporter handed President Winslow an unspecified amount of dollar bills.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: I spoke to Larry King and asked him if he knew how much money the reporter had given the Mexican president. King said that the re-election campaign contribution amounted to 2,285 pesos or $235 in United States money.]
