Will Posture For Remittances

The latest from Mexico on border issues.


Diplomats from Mexico and Central America on Monday demanded guest worker programs and the legalization of undocumented migrants in the United States, while criticizing a U.S. proposal for tougher border enforcement.
Meeting in Mexico's capital, the regional officials pledged to do more to fight migrant trafficking, but indirectly condemned a U.S. bill that would make illegal entry a felony and extend border walls.
And they said that with a straight face?
Here is the appropriate response for the President:
"We appreciate your 'pledge' to enforce your and our immigration laws, and we pledge to make it much easier for you to honor your pledge, by securing our border against illegal immigration. As for your criticisms of our plan to build a wall along the border, I would remind you that border security is one of the fundamental elements of the modern nation-state, and the idea needs neither defense nor explanation."
