Mexico's Fox toughens talk on U.S. immigration lawI find it mind-boggling that Fox has a bigger problem with our wanting to prevent illegal immigration than he does with his own government operating so poorly as to be unable to provide a future for those who are are fleeing - by the millions - from Mexico.
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Vicente Fox called recent U.S. measures to stem illegal immigration a step back for bilateral relations on Friday and said Mexican migrants do jobs "that not even blacks want to do."
In comments likely to raise the temperature of the immigration debate, Fox defended the role of undocumented Mexican workers in the United States to a group of Texas business people meeting in Mexico.
"There is no doubt that Mexicans, filled with dignity, willingness and ability to work are doing jobs that not even blacks want to do there in the United States," he said in a speech broadcast in part on local radio and reported on newspaper web sites.
Fox said recent, tougher measures against immigrants do not represent "the road we should be building between friends and partners." (link)
My suggestion to Señor Fox is to spend less time worrying about the laws of the USA and more time working toward raising the wretched standard of living of his people.
You don't want to make us mad, compadre. We'll send Condoleezza down there to perform a little smack down.
