Christmas Comes Early For Guatemalans, Et Al . . .
Let it never be said that El President Vicente Fox prefers to live in the past (except for his government`s rampant corruption).
Naturally, he went ballistic over the weekend after the House passed wide-ranging border security and illegal immigration legislation that included a new fence along the border with “our friend” to the south. (And, as we knew it would, the bill has generated non-stop whining and wailing among the various “immigrant rights” advocates nationwide.
“It`s a very bad sign, which does not speak well of a country that is proud of being democratic, proud of being a country of immigrants,” Fox said in a speech to relatives of Mexican migrants.
Nota bene to you guys in Guatamela: You must be just beside yourselves at the news. I mean, no more hassle as you trek across Mexican soil enroute to a better life, right?
