"[Mexican] President Calderon doesn’t think much of our border policies. He criticizes our efforts to secure the border with things such as border fencing. He says that bottle necks at U.S. checkpoints hurt Mexican commerce and force his citizens to migrate illegally in order to make a living (and of course send money back to Mexico). He apparently thinks we should do nothing except make American citizens out of his constituents. Calderon also accused U.S. officials of failing to do enough to stop the flow of drugs in to the United States.. . .
"[C]riticizing the U.S. for alternately doing too much and too little . . . is not going to set too well with Americans of good will who are trying to figure a way out of the mess that [Mexico's] and our open borders policy has already created." -- Fred Thompson
