When you build bridges, you do so on both sides of an obstacle
Posted by: McQ on Monday, October 08, 2007

I get tired of this sort of unhelpful rhetoric:
Mexican President Felipe Calderon criticized the planned U.S. border fence designed to stem illegal immigration, saying countries should be "building bridges, not fences" in an interview broadcast on Monday.
Well Mr. Calderon, if you would take charge of your side of the border and actually take steps to stem the tide of illegal immigration into the US (like you do on your own southern border to stop illegal immigration into Mexico), we, most likely wouldn't be building fences, would we?

We have a saying here, Mr. Calderon ... if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. And, through its refusal to take action that is precisely what Mexico has become.

continuing from the whole Che thread...I went to Cancun this summer on a cruise, and we had our tour guide talking about their ’illegal immigration problem’ in their southern borders. He then went on to tell us how when Cubans fleeing persecution land in Mexico, they’re arrested and handed back to Castro. In the very next breath he was on about how unfair the Americans treated Mexicans and what he called ’racism’.

I kid you not, it’s the mentality down there.

Yes Mr. Calderon, you can start building that bridge just as soon as you are done with the one to Guatemala.

Politician’s actions—for the most part—serve one purpose to gain and enhance power. That’s a fact of life in most parts of the world (except for the socialist and theocratic utopians around the globe where they serve the people) also in Mexico, big surprise?!

If we look at what Mexico gain in monetary terms from legal and illegal immigrants in the US I’m not too surprised at what Mr. Calderon is saying. Are you?

Maybe Calderon should spend his time fixing Mexico’s economy so that millions of his citizens don’t feel the need to invade the USA to work.
