If the Mexican government pursues this and Bush is seen to be "neutral", this could cost him heavily in the Southwest.

"this could cost him heavily in the Southwest."

Georgie's workin' on his legacy...unfortunately he'll be remembered by the Mexico government and populace as the gringo that opened the borders.

My beef is people who say "president bush should be ashamed representing illegal foreign criminals">

Did you join FR just before the election simply to bash Bush?

Bush doesn't care what it "costs" him. He can't run again.

"president bush should be ashamed representing illegal foreign criminals, and not standing up for rights, privileges, and needs of his fellow american citizens."

Remember, too, that it was his daddy who jammed NAFTA onto the fast-track in the waning daze of his presidency.....with the allegation that it would go far toward reducing illegal alien traffic across our border. What crap THAT turned out to be.

LAW AND HISTORY REVIEW

"Immigration inspectors ignored Mexicans coming into the southwestern United States during the 1900s and 1910s to work in railroad construction, mining, and agriculture.

"The Immigration Bureau did not seriously consider Mexican immigration within its purview, but rather as something that was "regulated by labor market demands in [the southwestern] border states."

" The Bureau also described the Southwest as the "natural habitat" of Mexicans, acknowledging, albeit strangely, Mexicans' claims of belonging in an area that had once been part of Mexico.

"The Immigration Act of 1917 doubled the head tax and imposed a literacy test, erecting the first barriers to entry. But unlawful entry was limited, as the Labor Department exempted Mexicans from the requirements during the war.

" It was not until 1919 that Mexicans entering the United States were required to apply for admission at lawfully designated ports of entry.35

During a January 28 radio interview, Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez has threatened the State of Arizona with legal action through the international courts

How many divisions does he command?

Who cares what happened almost 100 years ago. It's time you opened your eyes and joined law abiding people in the 21st century.
