The racist comments about Ricardo Martinelli on Asians are because recently he (the actual President of Panama) made comments that illegal Asian immigration has come to an end, and that he was going to instruct immigration officials to go after all the Chinese immigrants that had entered the country with a tourist visa and had not left the country after 30 days as the law demands.

The racist comments are because he obviously has only picked on Chinese immigrants. Colombians, Nicaraguans, Venezuelans, Dominicans, and to a lesser extent now Cubans, have always used Panama as a jumping point to emigrate to the US, and many others stay illegally in Panama once they get here.

However to be honest and fair there's also a considerable number of those immigrants that actually do their part and get their paperwork in order to stay legal in Panama.

On a personal note I believe that the crackdown on illegal immigration is due to a political agenda. It wouldn't come as a surprise to me if the actual Panamanian government wants to correct that situation to apply to the US Visa Waiver Program. One of the first things that have always prevented Panama from joining that program has been the illegal immigration situation consisting on corrupt consular officials selling tourist visas to restricted immigration countries (the list is quite long).


So that they're so many illegal immigrants in Panama that he must resolve to this action? I ask for proof and its been 2 weeks now and no pictures and actual evidences this is crap.

Agreed, I've been doing some searching online and I've found little to no evidence of this. I'm not saying it isn't happening, but do you have any sources (like online newspaper articles, pictures, heck even a blog would work at this point) to back up your story?
