How To Get Mexico's Attention

One of the reasons the border is such a mess is the US gets no cooperation from the Mexican government. If fact, our friendly nieghbors to the south openly encourage their citizens to break our immigration laws, and have gone as far as to threaten litigation. Another open secret is the narco-mafia is basicly running Mexico.

""Mexico's drug gangs have tainted high government posts in a developing nation of some 93 million people that has recently teetered on the edge of political and economic crisis. American lawmakers cited that corruption in an unsuccessful fight to block certification of Mexico as a cooperating partner in anti-narcotics efforts.""

Local officials who fail to comply to the wishes of the drug cartels have a habit of being assassinated. One could speculate that the long term groth of drug cartels could be attributed to corruption at the highest levels of the Mexican government. There are also documented cases of terrorists entering our country from Mexico.

But what can America do about this? How do we convince Vincente Fox that cooperation is nessasary? I propose we hit Mexico in the pocket book. Mexican President Vicente Fox said at a meeting with Mexican-American businessman that money sent back to Mexico from America is the biggest source of revenue for Mexico and has been since 2003. 16.6 billion in '04.

Imagine if President Bush cut off this drag on our economy, Fox would be forced to clean up his act or face an overnight economic crisis. Illegal immigrants would think twice about coming here if they couldn't send money home. Drug cartels would finally face justice by a government that seeking to regain it's northern trading partner. Of course this will never happen, after 20-some-odd years of border failure, it seems more likely the corruption will spread north.

Ha! Minutes after Bush made his thoughts on the Guard going to the border, Fox was on the phone with him for "assurance." That disgusting walking mustache has the cajones to tell us what to do with our Army, that we shouldn't build fences, ect., while their government buildings have public service pamphlets on how to survive the desert and get into America.


I'll have to go check out the interview!
