CIA director Porter Goss wasn't kidding when he put Mexico in with Venezuela, Haiti, Bolivia and Nicaragua as the most unstable countries in the hemisphere.
So begins The American Thinker's analysis of the political outlook for the upcoming Mexican elections this year.
As a substitute for reform, Fox encouraged Mexicans to skip over the border to the U.S., to take up life as illegal aliens - and send dollars back to Mexico.
The danger on our southern boarder is hard to ignore, why has an administration that I have praised for addressing issues and not, "kicking the can down the road," (like virtually every issue during the eight years of Clinton) not properly addressed this issue?
Could it be the plight of those already here,
The poverty, the exploitation by the migrant rackets, the permanent underclass status, the ease with which aliens can lose everything they've worked to build if they are apprehended by law enforcement is heartbreaking. These people are helpless.Understandably concerning and worth addressing, but not valid for ignoring the boarder issue and those who are still streaming across the boarder aren't helped by being trapped in this same hell!
Earlier I posted that perhaps there was something we didn't know about the southern boarder and our war on terror efforts, perhaps a cooperative Fox is better then a Chavez look alliance.
For the U.S., there's a potential Hugo Chavez on its border, one who's already talking about an oil alliance with Venezuela. Oil supplier number three teaming up with oil supplier number four to stick it to the gringos sounds like $105 a barrel oil already. For Latin America, there's one more demagogue ready to retard the region's growth by destroying Latin America's largest economy. The danger is obvious to everyone.
