MEXICO CITY -- Opinion makers and migrant advocates in Mexico said Friday that the collapse of U.S. immigration reform plans hurts Mexican workers, U.S. employers and anti-terrorism efforts.

President Bush's plan to legalize as many as 12 million unlawful immigrants from around the world while fortifying the border collapsed in the U.S. Senate on Thursday.

"This is very bad news for Mexican migrants in the U.S.," said Jorge Bustamante, special rapporteur to the U.N. human rights commission for migrants. "It means the continuation and probably a worsening of the migrants' vulnerable conditions."

The Rev. Luis Kendziersky, director of a shelter for migrants in the border city of Tijuana, said it appeared senators "are focused more on the political game than on the real needs of the people."

"According to polls, the majority of the people (in the U.S.) want legality with concessions for undocumented migrants, but the radicals make a lot of noise," he said.

An editorial in the national daily newspaper El Universal said, "It's obvious that the politicians of that country want laborers, but they are not willing to legalize the labor that they need."

Migrants "will continue to be subjected to extraordinary means of discrimination," El Universal said. A "subculture of illegality" in border crossings also does nothing to aid the U.S. fight against terrorism, it said.

An editorial in the left-leaning newspaper La Jornada called the decision a "triple shipwreck" _ a failure for the Bush administration, the United States and Mexican President Felipe Calderon.

"The most powerful country on the planet will have to continue living, for many more months, with the scandalous contradiction between its laws and the real needs of its economy, thirsty for cheap labor to guarantee the international competitiveness of its exports, especially in agriculture."

Calderon has been less vocal in demanding immigration reform than was his predecessor Vicente Fox, whose campaign for changes in U.S. policy failed.

The president instead has focused strengthening Mexico's economy to stem the flow of workers north, while criticizing the 700-mile (1,130-kilometer) barrier Congress approved to increase security on the border with Mexico.

On Thursday, Calderon called the Senate's decision a "grave error" and a failure to find a "sensible, rational, legal solution to the migration problem."

I certainly boycott going to Mexico. To show their appreciation for allowing them to rape our social infrastructure all week long, they make a certain number of "tourists" disappear.
