Yeah, Mexico. From http://jonathanmurray.com/greymatter/archives/00000532.htm comicbook style how-tos for border jumping, to songbooks in schools extolling the benefits of drug running, we can always count on our southern neighbor to lend a helping hand. Now the government of the Mexican state of Yucatan has http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,151207,00.html produced a handbook to border crossing, complete with DVD. Obviously the President’s http://usinfo.state.gov/gi/Archive/2005/Mar/08-371643.html recent talks with Mexico and Canada to strengthen border security were simply lip service.
Actions speak louder than words, and http://www.bartleby.com/59/3/goodfencesma.html good fences make good neighbors.
Screw all this NAFTA garbage. To hell with the questionable business practices that insist the near slavery of illegal immigrants is the only way they can stay competitive. Wall off the damned border and shoot anyone trying to come across illegally. Take a lesson from the Israelis on this.
Anything else is a token measure that will accomplish nothing.
The state of Yucatan (search) has issued a new 87-page handbook that tells people how to get across the U.S. border illegally. The guide, which has an accompanying DVD, contains a section on how to apply for a lawful visa but the remaining 50-plus pages are filled with instructions about how to safely sneak into the United States, then blend in.
