Mexico has reacted furiously to a bill signed into law by the US this week that would fund a border wall and prevent illegal Mexican migrants from obtaining US driving licences.
President Vicente Fox said he would lodge a diplomatic complaint, and was considering complaints to multilateral bodies if Mexico could not unable to resolve the problem bilaterally.
In the US, leaders of the Mexican community threatened to strike to send a message to US employers that they could not survive without cheap Mexican labour.
Santiago Creel, Mexico's interior secretary, said the “Real ID” law was “negative, inconvenient, and obstructionist”.
---Wow!! Mexico should open up it's Southern Border before demanding we do the same. Mexico has no tolerance for illegals ENTERING their country, hypocrites. Any other taxpayers out there tired of picking up the multi - billion dollar tab we pay each year to make up for the cost of these lawbreakers abusing our delicate infrastructure? I don't know about you, but I live in Krazy Kallifornia and our state is broke because of these people busting out our hospitals and other services along with the crooks called politicians in Sacramento doing nothing about it along with thier dangerous out of control spending ( I see this first hand because I work in the political arena here)...
Anyway, Mr. Fox should STFU. Yes sir, Mexicans can have driver licenses, they are called Mexican driver licenses.... :flame:
Also, these slave wage earners will really hurt the middle class down the road by bringing down our standards of living to that of Mexico and the competition to 'basic wages' will only go down from here. That along with the continued outsourcing of our jobs will be the death to the average working american. Why is this happening? So that a few greedy billionares can acquire more and create another society (maybe I should say continent) of slave wage workers just like Communist China. They will continue to outsource until there is no longer a viable middle class and the politicians will let them get away will bloody murder.
