It seems that “Visit Mexico” bought an ad that ran in yesterday’s Arizona Republic (how long it’s been running and if it’s in there today, I’m not sure).

I got the heads-up about it after seeing this Twitter post from Sheriff Joe Arpaio:

So I clicked on the link and checked out the ad.

If you live in Arizona (or anywhere else in the US for that matter), does this make you want to visit Sonora, “Arizona’s neighbor”?

The ad certainly doesn’t imply that somebody in Mexico is on the lookout for you so they can bring over the welcome wagon, does it?

Update: “Visit Mexico” might be a little more welcoming to Belinda Carlisle — and they can have her.

Update (MM): Via commenter beachmom:

I just called and spoke to a man from the Mexican tourism board in Sonora.

Apparently, the Arizona Republic cut off half the ad. It was supposed to say …looking for people from Arizona who want to have fun” There are also supposed to be families having fun reflected in the glasses. The A. Republic is supposed to print corrections today and tomorrow.

By the way, they aren’t mad about Arizona’s law. They want the drugs and illegals to stop too. He said the drug and illegals trade are hurting them badly.

I suggested they call Fox News and ask to come on to talk about it. He wrote it down and said he is going to tell his boss. We’ll see.

The state of Sonora has actually been pretty supportive of the efforts to stop illegals and drugs. Their governor has a history of going against the rest of Mexico.
We’ll see, as I said. Maybe he was telling me the truth. He seemed upset and he loves the US. He went to school in VT.
