Mexico Getting Worked Up Over A Wall
Looks like we upset our lousy neighbors to the South by having the audacity to try to keep their citizens from illegally entering our country with a wall:
“Mexico says it may go to the United Nations to challenge US plans to build hundreds of kilometres of fences on its southern border.
The Foreign Secretary, Luis Ernesto Derbez, said the plan was offensive.
Asked if he would take up the issue with the UN, a step some Mexican politicians have called for, Mr Derbez replied: “Without a doubt, we are examining, with the foreign relations legal team, what options are open at an international level and we will take them.”
…The outgoing Mexican President, Vicente Fox, has called the plan “shameful” and compared it to the Berlin Wall. Mr Fox has spent his six-year term lobbying for a new guest worker program and an amnesty for Mexicans working illegally in the US.
….The president-elect, Felipe Calderon, who takes office on December 1, has also attacked the plans.
“One could stop more migrants with a kilometre of new roads and development than with a wall,” he said.”
Don’t you love these indignant, ranting Mexican officials? They’re like a bunch of burglars who are outraged, outraged I tell you, that people are starting to put locks on their doors and get guard dogs. Who do those people think they are trying to keep burglars out of their houses?
Oh, and they’re going to call the UN on us! Ha, ha, ha, please don’t call the mean, old UN! Please! Anything, but that! They might send us a sternly worded letter or something…well, if we allowed it. We are on the Security Council, ya know. Ha, ha! Chumps!
Well, take heart, folks — if the wall is upsetting Mexico this much, that means that they think it’s going to work. So, we may have a lot more work to do to take care of the illegal immigration problem, but the wall will be one of the biggest steps in the right direction that we’ve taken in decades.
