Mexico Threatens Lawsuits Over U.S. Guard Patrols
Wednesday, May 17, 2006
NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico -- 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.
Now, bring out the window-dressing, the lipstick for the pig:
"If there is a real wave of rights abuses, if we see the National Guard starting to directly participate in detaining people ... we would immediately start filing lawsuits through our consulates," Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez said in an interview with a Mexico City radio station. Mexican officials worry the increased security at the U.S. border will lead to more deaths. Since the bolstered surveillance at crossing spots in Texas and California in 1994, migrants have flooded Arizona's hard-to-patrol desert and deaths have spiked.
Like they really give a damn about anything moral down there:
Julieta Nunez Gonzalez, the Ciudad Juarez representative of Mexico's National Immigration Institute...Nunez said she planned to ask the Mexican government to send a migrant protection force, Grupo Beta, to more remote sections of the border. The dusty outpost near the New Mexico border has turned into a smugglers haven after the U.S. Border Patrol increased its presence on the Arizona border.

Old Dr. Phil keeps saying that we teach people how to treat us. That applies to a government as well as an individual. The fact that the Mexican barbarians would even dare make such threats shows you how far we have declined as a nation.
Let's replace just about everybody in our government and settle for nothing less than getting back to rational, American principles. We can cut Mexico loose to seek its own level, which means it will sink out of sight.
