Mexico Warns US Of Possible Suit
Mexico warned Tuesday it would file lawsuits in U.S. courts if National Guard troops detain migrants on the border, and some officials said they fear the crackdown will force illegal crossers into more perilous areas to avoid detection.
What a laugh. They are going to sue the US for protecting it's borders. These guys really love the money that's being sent south don't they? And if they are really concerned for their citizens then why don't they try and fix the troubles down in Mexico. If it wasn't such a bad place to live then they wouldn't be dying to get into the US, would they?
Sending the National Guard "will not stop the flow of migrants, to the contrary, it will probably go up," as people try to get into the U.S. with hopes of applying for a possible amnesty program, said Julieta Nunez Gonzalez, the Ciudad Juarez representative of Mexico's National Immigration Institute.
Looks like Mexico doesn't believe McCain when he says it's not amnesty.
Along the border in Nuevo Laredo, Carlos Gonzalez, a 23-year old from Mexico's southern state of Chiapas, was waiting for a chance to swim across the river into Texas. He said soldiers would not stop him getting to a construction job he had lined up in North Carolina.
Hopefully our legislature will hurry up and pass the tougher anti-illegal jobs bill.
