Mexico's modern law makers are very intuitive and profound in my humble opinion..
In 2008, the U.S. Congress will consider giving $1 billion in assistance to Mexico as part of the “Merida Initiative.” As programs in this aid package are framed as support for human interdiction, border security and law enforcement activities, it is critical that policymakers and advocates gain a clearer understanding of the broader context in which human rights abuses take place in Mexico’s southern border region to ensure that U.S. policy, and in particular, the Merida Initiative, does not aggravate a precarious situation any further.
They want to keep Mexico 'Native Mexican'.

So you want America to aspire to be like Mexico???
That is your solution...let's be like Mexico???
This is one of the dumbest arguments in the immigration debate...people take countries that are failing or tyranical and say "Look at their immigration policy".
I always thought Americans were proud of the fact that we do what is right...not that we look to the worst for our examples and try to be just like them.
Seriously...what happened to:
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

should we really be looking for policies to imitate form a country that doesn't have a handle on its own affairs?
