Catch Us Breaking Your Laws and We'll Sue!

So says the Mexican government.

In a radio interview today, Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez told a radio station "If we see the National Guard starting to directly participate in detaining people ... we would immediately start filing lawsuits through our consulates."

Wow. So Mexico will file lawsuits against the United States if Mexicans entering our nation illegally are apprehended by the National Guard? And I thought I had lousy neighbors! (just kidding Chris)

Here's the full story.

Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks the government in Mexico is as incompetent as they are corrupt. The liberal Mexican presidential candidate, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, spoke out today about Mexico's role in the current crisis. Said Obrador about the Vicente Fox administration: "They are the ones mostly responsible for what is going on because there is no employment, there are no jobs in Mexico so people need to emigrate." At last, somebody south of the border gets it. Story from Reuters here.
