What takes not one but several members of the Bush
Cabinet to Mexico
next week, so soon after the election?
["Mexico Seeks U.S. Immigration Changes," by
Mark Stevenson, Miami Herald, November 6, 2004].
To apologize for Arizona`s
Proposition 200, which Mexico`s Foreign Relations
Department has already had the arrogance to
denounce? Or to applaud Mexican Interior Secretary
Creel`s recent insolent remark
absurd that [the United States] is spending as much as
it`s spending to stop immigration flows that can`t be
stopped … instead of using that money on real threats
that pose risks for both countries`”
According to the
San Antonio Express-News ["Immigration Accord
Seen By Hutchison, Mexican Official," by Guilermo X.
Garcia, November 5 2004], Presidents Bush and Fox agreed
to “initiate high priority talks especially with
respect to immigration” during Fox`s congratulatory
phone call on Friday morning.
Looks like another
amnesty on the Election dessert menu.
