Mexican Government Bashes Gov. Perry, Demands “Holistic” Approach to Imigration

From The Hill:

The Mexican government blasted Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) on Thursday for deploying National Guard troops to the border.

The government said it “deeply rejects and condemns the deployment” and accused the possible 2016 presidential candidate of making the decision for political reasons.

“Mexico underscores that it is irresponsible to manipulate border security for political reasons,” according to a statement released by the Mexican embassy in Washington. “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 government said the deployment will not bring a safer border and breaks with the nature of the U.S.-Mexico bilateral relationship.

Oh, they INSIST. Well then we must adjust our troglodyte immigration laws to accommodate that all-important regional thing.

In the alternative, maybe we could just adopt Mexico’s immigration laws.

  1. This is a classic example of the pot calling the kettle black. Mexico has a large number of troops at its southern border with Guatemala. If it is so detestable for the US to do it why is it acceptable for Mexico to do the very same thing?
