“UN”-believable that the Mexican government would even think to take the matter of US border security to the United Nations. How “UN”imaginable that the UN is going to decide US police. The most useless and ineffective group of individuals ever assembled who live the high life in NYC while many other their own people live in poverty. News flash Mexico … you nor the UN have any say over a sovereign nations right to defend itself and protect its borders. If the UN even thinks that they will hear such a plea, can we toss them out of this country once and for all and utilize that NYC address for something productive.
Mexico’s foreign secretary said Monday the country may take a dispute over U.S. plans to build a fence on the Mexican border to the United Nations.
The Mexican government last week sent a diplomatic note to Washington criticizing the plan for 700 miles of new fencing along the border. President-elect Felipe Calderon also denounced the plan, but said it was a bilateral issue that should not be put before the international community.
Derbez said Monday after meeting with French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy that it was a “shame” U.S. immigration policy had been used for what he claimed was a short-term political gain in the lead-up to midterm elections in the U.S. in November. (Washington Post)
Earth to Mexico … we honestly do not care what you have to say. This is the United States, not Mexico. Do we tell you how to protect your borders? If the Mexican government could actually provide jobs and a living wage for its people, maybe Mexicans would not feel the need to come to the US. In a post 9–11 world a fence between Mexico and the US is twofold solution to problems, illegal immigration and security.
“What should be constructed is a bridge in relations between the two countries,” Derbez said. A bridge … yea right … we should build a moat in addition to the wall.
