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
"`It`s 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.
