Con­quer­ing Amer­ica

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

The Mex­i­can gov­ern­ment ap­par­ently has no prob­lem with its cit­i­zens pen­e­trat­ing the U.S. border by the mil­lions. In fact, it’s been writ­ten that in­creas­ing the num­ber of Mex­i­cans work­ing il­le­gally in Amer­ica is among Mex­ico’s high­est for­eign-pol­icy ob­jec­tives.

Yet now comes con­gres­sional tes­ti­mony from Jess T. Ford, the Gov­ern­ment Ac­count­abil­ity Of­fice’s di­rec­tor of in­ter­na­tional af­fairs and trade, that “Mex­i­can sen­si­tiv­ity about its na­tional sovereignty” has made it dif­fi­cult for the two coun­tries to co­or­di­nate coun­ternar­cotics ac­tiv­i­ties.

Mex­i­can sen­si­tiv­ity? About its na­tional sovereignty? What about ours?
