United States tired of playing... Mexico throws temper tantrum

The Seattle Times
"Mexico is not going to bear, it is not going to permit, and it will not allow a stupid thing like this wall," Derbez said.

MEXICO CITY — The Mexican government, angered by a U.S. proposal to extend a wall along the border to keep out migrants, pledged Tuesday to block the plan and organize an international campaign against it.

Facing a growing tide of anti-immigrant sentiment north of the border, the Mexican government has taken out ads urging Mexican workers to denounce rights violations in the United States. It also is hiring an American public-relations firm to improve its image and counter growing U.S. concerns about immigration.

Mexican President Vicente Fox denounced the U.S. measures, passed by the House of Representatives on Friday, as "shameful" and his foreign secretary, Luis Ernesto Derbez, echoed his complaints on Tuesday.

"Mexico is not going to bear, it is not going to permit, and it will not allow a stupid thing like this wall," Derbez said. is this a threat? Is this a declaration of war?

"What has to be done is to raise a storm of criticism, as is already happening, against this," he said, promising to turn the international community against the plan.

Many Mexicans, especially those who have spent time working in the U.S., feel the proposal is a slap in the face to those who work hard and contribute to the U.S. economy. oh, so then being here illegally is not a slap in the face of our justice system and their lack of respect for our laws.

"When people heard this, it worried everybody, because this will affect everybody in some way, and their families," Robledo said. "They were incredulous. How could they do this, propose something like this?" simple... you broke the law and were tired of it and were putting a new lock on the door.

Robledo, whose son and mother are U.S. citizens, predicted the measure "would unleash conflict within the United States" as small businesses fail for lack of workers. in this instance, he does make a good point, however, it is no excuse for companies to hire people who do not have a right to be here and to encourage people to break the law. I.e. two wrongs do not make a right.

Additional comments on this issue, Daniel's Political Musings

If President Fox is really concerned about the immigration here, than the first thing that he could do to promote better relations between the two countries is to first encourage his people to go through the process that has been set up to come here legally and to remind them that they are ambassadors of Mexico and to act accordingly. Instead he is encouraging his people to risk their lives and come here illegally. That doesn't say much for a government that is willing to unnecessarily put their peoples live unnecessarily at risk.

If Fox is so concerned, why doesn't he focus on making his own country a more prosperous place to live. Why is he encouraging his people to leave?

What they do not realize or understand, is that the illegal immigration problem has gotten out of control and we are forced into taking extreme measures to regain control of our borders and if putting up a fence is one of those measures, then so be it.

By Fox threatening international pressure and publicly making comments such as "Mexico is not going to bear, it is not going to permit, and it will not allow a stupid thing like this wall." Is a threat that we should not take lightly.

The bottom line, this has became more than just a view illegal Mexicans coming across the border looking for work, it has gone way beyond that and the sheer numbers speak for themselves.

Fox is mad because there are many more millions of HIS people that he intends to implant into the liberally generous USA!

Meanwhile, Mexico is far tougher on its southern border with Quatemala than the U.S is with Mexico. If you are a Guatemalan trying to get into Mexico, you face walls, barbed wire, attack dogs, and federales with machine guns. If they catch you, you go to prison if you are lucky. You might just get shot. But Guatemalans just want a chance at a better life in Mexico. They just want to be able to work.

"We have a binational life," he said of Zacatecas, a state that has been sending migrants north for more than a century. "It isn't just a feeling of rejection. It's against what we see as part of our life, our culture, our territory."

Umm...he's wrong. His territory is south of the US Border!

Daniel has the best analogy... and I don't think it is because President Fox is too stupid to know that either, with an estimated $20 billion going into his country every year, he does not want to lose that and closing our border would put a severe dent in that money flow

I wonder why the Mexican Government doesn't do something to improve their economic situation so that the citizens don't feel the need to flee their own country? DUH!

it is, like the scenario of why put out any effort (referring to the Mexican government) to build infrastructure, roads and everything else that goes along with Congress when you have people that are willing to go to another country and send over $20 billion into your economy.

What I would like to know also is, why are the Mexican people putting up with it?
