    Mexico To Build Southern Border Fence

    Mexico to Build Southern Border Fence
    Wednesday, October 6, 2010, 1:50 PM EDT - posted on NumbersUSA


    Mexico, which often criticizes the American government for putting up barriers which restrict the flow of illegal immigrants across the U.S. - Mexico border is building a fence of its own along its southern border with Guatemala.

    It has been reported that the head of the Mexican Superintendency of Tax Administration, Raul Diaz, confirmed that the Mexican government is building a wall along the Mexican - Guatemalan border. Diaz stated the official reason for building the border wall is to stop illegal drugs from coming into Mexico, but Diaz did admit that it could also prevent the free passage of illegal immigrants.

    The hypocrisy of Mexico's actions has not been lost on American politicians. Last week, Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) said on the house floor:

    Mr. POE of Texas. Mr. Speaker, in spite of objections to the contrary, a fence is still being built along the southern border. Illegals objected to this but the President is resilient. He is standing firm on his commitment to build the fence to keep illegals out.

    You see, over 500,000 illegals cross the border every year into Mexico, and the fence is being built at the southern end of Mexico to keep people like Guatemalans out. It's the Mexican southern border that they're protecting.

    You know, Calderon demands that the United States not build a fence. He arrogantly demands the Arizona law not be enforced, but when Mexico has problems with illegals coming to "take jobs that Mexicans won't do," Calderon says he's building a fence on his southern border, whether illegals like it or not.

    Every country has the right to defend its border. We should stop listening to anything President Calderon says and do what's right for our country.

    Anti-illegal immigration, pro-American worker leaders also had something to say regarding the Mexico-Guatemala Fence: "While the hypocrisy of the Mexican government is offensive," said NumbersUSA President Roy Beck, "Americans can cheer the Mexican fence which should greatly reduce the number of non-Mexicans illegally crossing the U.S. southern border."

    CALDERON HAS NO RIGHT TO MAKE ANYKIND OF DEMANDS CONCERNING THIS COUNTRY. AND IT IS SHAMEFUL THAT CONGRESSMAN TED POE IS THE ONLY ONE IN THE HOUSE WITH A BACKBONE TO SPEAK UP ABOUT THIS. AND ITS EVEN MORE SHAMEFUL THAT OUR GOVERNMENT LISTENS TO ANYTHING THAT HE OBJECTS TO CONCERNING OUR COUNTRY. THE S*B ONLY WANT HIS PEASANTS TO BE ABLE TO CROSS INTO THE U.S. ILLEGALLY, SO HE WON'T HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF THEM

    At the least, we should be glad Mexico is taking this step, even if US officials are dragging their feet on our own border fence. Anything that helps stem the flow should be welcome.

    I agree Captainron. Mexico should have no problem with US building our own fence then.

    We all know why mexico is doing this, they want only their own citizens to invade us. Latin American and OTM illegals are cutting into "their" profits.

    Hard to believe, but there used to be a day and age when Mexico and the US used to cooperate more closely on monitoring their shared border. Here is an article from nearly 10 years ago, a few months before 9-11-01:

    http://www.worldpress.org/0901feature21.htm

    From the September 2001 issue of World Press Review (VOL. 48, No. 9).

    Negotiating a Migration Accord
    A First Bilateral Effort

    Diego Cevallos, Inter Press Service (international news agency), Rome, Italy, June 22, 2001.

    Mexico and the United States announced actions today [June 22] that are intended to reinforce safety along their shared 1,900-mile border in a bid to protect the lives of Mexicans who attempt to enter U.S. territory illegally. Mexico’s Foreign Minister Jorge Castañeda said that Washington “for the first time
