Illegal Immigration: Mexico Warns United States

Crossposted from CommonSenseAmerica:

I don’t think they like us anymore. . .

From USA Today:

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico warned Thursday that the U.S. proposal to build miles of border fence will damage relations between the two countries.
We have been warned.

The Foreign Relations Department said it was “deeply worried” about the proposal, which is working its way through the Senate, adding it will “increase tension in border communities.”
The Mexican government isn’t “deeply worried” about an “increase tension in border communities”. The only thing the Mexican government is worried about is this:

Last year, Mexican migrants sent home more than $20 billion in remittances, providing Mexico with its second biggest source of foreign income after oil.
And the President of Mexico, Vicente Fox, added his two cents:

President Vicente Fox has rallied against the wall, calling it “shameful” and comparing it to the Berlin Wall, which divided Germany.
Protecting the citizens of America is not shameful. What IS shameful is the sense of entitlement the Mexican government has adopted. Rather than improving the economy of Mexico, the Mexican government has abandoned its citizens by encouraging them to live in the foster care of America while, at the same time, expecting the kids to send home cash.

Now that is shameful.
