Mexico's Fox protests as second US state closes border

Yahoo! News
Phoenix, Arizona -- Arizona ignored pleas for greater corporation from Mexican President Vicente Fox to be calmed the second US state to declare a state of emergency on its border due to rising illegal immigration, violence and smuggling.

Four days after New Mexico declared a 90 day state of emergency for border areas, Arizona did the same for its four counties on the Mexican frontier, citing uncontrolled illegal immigration.
"the federal government has to secure our border, and the health and safety of all Arizonans is threatened daily by violent gangs, coyotes (human traffickers) and other dangerous criminals," said Arizona Governor Janet Natolitano in a statement.
"I intend to take every action feasible to stem the tide of criminal behavior on the Arizona side of the border," she said.

Mexican President Fox responded Tuesday to the moves by the two US governors with calls for greater cooperation over border problems.
He exhorted the United States to cooperate with Mexico to resolve border problems.

"Instead of pointing fingers, let's have proposals; instead of each side working by itself, let's work together, only like this will we be able to win." Fox said.

I think what Arizona is doing is marvelous . if the federal government will not protect our borders and its citizens, then it is up to the states to do so. I applaud Arizona for taking action and I feel that Oregon should do the same.

As for Mexican President Fox's comments about cooperation, we have been asking him for years to help us in curbing illegal immigrants and they (Mexican government) refused to help.

And it is more than just people coming over here illegally, there was discussion on Lars's show today about a nuclear device being smuggled over the Mexican border into the United States.

So a message to all those people that are worried about being "politically correct" -- you just can't not leave the front door unlocked and expect to be safe anymore --
