    MEXICO CITY — The Mexican government slammed the U.S. Congress for approving an immigration bill (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,179012,00.html) that would tighten border controls and make it harder for undocumented immigrants to get jobs.

    The House of Representatives voted 239-182 in favor of measures that would enlist military and local law enforcement to help stop illegal entrants and require employers to verify the legal status of their workers.

    The House also authorized the building of a fence along parts of the U.S.-Mexico border, but did not include any new temporary work program for migrants, something Mexico insists is needed.

    "The government of Mexico ... believes that a reform which only considers security measures will not contribute to a better, more integral bilateral management of migration issues," the Foreign Relations department said in a statement.

    "The U.S. executive branch publicly expressed its commitment to an integral immigration reform, with a new program for temporary workers," the statement continued. "The Mexican government will redouble its efforts to achieve this shared goal."

    President Bush urged Congress almost two years ago to enact a guest worker program that would allow illegal immigrants to stay in the country temporarily to fill jobs unwanted by Americans.

    This was all fine and dandy. But I'm afraid it's too little too late.

    If the Mexican government hates it, I'll probably be for it.

    I can see why the Mexican government would hate it. If the US border is sealed up, that means all those ex-illegal immigrants become their problem. That many unemployed, destitute and desperate people could cause a LOT of trouble for the Mexican government....

    And their point is? I don't recall anyone saying anything about bilateral management, nor expecting it. We man our borders and keep them out. Seems rather unilateral, and "Who gives-a-crap what you think?" to me.

    Note the words bilateral and migration. They (the Mexican .gov) want to speak on how they get rid of thier undesireables.

    Maybe the government of Mexico should try the death penalty or better yet, taking care of their own country and it's citizens.

    When did you ever see dog doo doo do anything useful??

    We have to feed, cloth, and rear unwanted, and unneeded generations of deadbeats.. Give credit to the liberals who felt guilty and used tax dollars to create the mess we are in. ((Of course, the conservative side hasn't figured out that abortions are a good thing either.)) We are as a society responsible for not making scum get off their asses and work. We allow the libs to dictate public policy and coddle the stupid.

    So now we have immigrants form South America, Asia, and India/Pakistan coming here and taking jobs from the ones that won't work, ones that "can't" work, and the ones who would feel less than Professional if they did the jobs that the immigrants do willingly. In the meantime, the immigrants are gaining work experience, buying houses/real estate, and effectively pushing our indiginous slugs further into the quagmire.


    But, Mexicans have got a good rep for landscaping, and construction while working in the US. THey do work hard and do a good job.. State, and municipal employees had better watch their asses before they get replaced with my amigos from down south.

    One last brainstorm,, what if we expelled one deadbeat, no matter if they were born here or not, to the country who supplies one immigrant worker to us?? Can it be done?? (hee hee!) How about for every worker they give us, we give them a half dozen of ungainfuly underutiilzed buff young studs, and throw in the an equal number of the female couterparts. This way the host country can help us retrain the mindset of these youth.

    They told me that a man will rise to his own level of incompetence. Your point about the immigrants outworking lazy Americans demonstrates a Darwinism I hadn't considered. Elimination of welfare and tightening up of the border would force the deadbeats to get off thier assess.
