Let Me See If I Understand...

Source: sweetness light
Migration has been the centerpiece of Mr. Fox’s foreign policy in the six years of his presidency. After the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, his hopes faltered for swift passage of measures to legalize an estimated six million Mexicans working illegally in the United States.

The relationship between Mexico and the United States grew tense as the Bush administration began focusing more on ways to seal the border than to expand opportunities for the legal flow of migrant workers. Still, Mr. Fox publicly supported most of Mr. Bush’s law enforcement efforts on the border. His cooperation with the United States has cost him significant political clout, however, among an increasing number of left-leaning leaders across Latin America.

And with presidential elections less than two months away, feelings that Mr. Fox has subordinated Mexico’s sovereignty to American interests threaten to affect the chances of the candidate he hopes to succeed him, Felipe Calderón.
Let me see if I understand this, Mexico's sovereignty is predicated on sending illegal aliens to this country?

My head hurts!
