Mexico Condemns Rick Perry for “Irresponsible” Deployment of National Guard Troops to the Border

The United States is literally being invaded by illegal immigrants, with the complicity of the governments in their home countries. Yet somehow, Mexican officials had the gall to criticize Texas Governor Rick Perry for deploying troops from the National Guard to the border.

The Government of Mexico deeply rejects and condemns the deployment of troops from the Texas National Guard to the border, announced today by the office of the governor of that state, Rick Perry.

Mexico underscores that it is irresponsible to manipulate border security for political reasons. We insist that the phenomenon of migration should be managed from a holistic and regional perspective through a medium term vision with shared responsibility which guarantees peace, inclusion and prosperity in the region.

The unilateral measure taken by the government of Texas is undoubtedly mistaken and does not contribute to the efforts in which our two countries are engaged to build a safe border and create a solution to the phenomenon of migration. The measure will not lead to greater understanding between our societies, and it stands in opposition to the values and principles by which Mexico and the United States govern our bilateral relationship.

What would happen if Americans were flooding the border into Mexico? They would throw every last one of them into a decrepit jail cell and leave them rotting in horrible conditions for years, but the United States is supposed to just allow Mexicans to waltz across the border consequence-free whenever they feel like it?
