Mexico leftist to push US on immigration reform

Source: ABCnews
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - The leftist candidate in Mexico's presidential election vowed on Tuesday to put immigration reform at the top of his agenda with Washington after a day of huge street protests by immigrants across the United States.

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said the demonstrations which drew hundreds of thousands of mainly Hispanic immigrants onto the streets of American cities on Monday showed the failures of past policies by U.S. and Mexican governments.

Only a deal legalizing the status of those workers already in the United States and economic policies that create more jobs in Mexico will stop hundreds of thousands of people from crossing the border illegally every year, Lopez Obrador said.

He promised it would be his No. 1 issue in dealing with Washington if he is elected on July 2.

"Migration flows can not be stopped. Even if they build walls, even if there are raids, even if there are more severe laws, it can't be resolved like that," Lopez Obrador said on his morning television show.

"We have to convince the U.S. government that there has to be cooperation for development and that we have to guarantee economic growth and employment in our country."
I have news for Senor Obrador migration flows can be stopped, walls; raids and more severe laws would solve the problem quite nicely thank you. The fact that our governement won't has nothing to do with these ideas effectiveness, in fact the opposite is true, they won't allow these things for the simple reason that they do work and we can't deprive our elites of their compliant slaves, can we?

I mean who would provide them with their delicious Cappucinos with just a whisper of foam, and the carob chip biscotti? Please, I think we all know Americans can't be trusted with these delicate operations.

Also, instead of cooperating with Mexico, which strikes me as a rape victim giving her rapist a peck on the cheek, how about we cut off remittances, derail American tourism to Mexico and close the border and allow them to finally have the revolution the ruling class has been assiduously avoiding for almost a hundred years.

That's what I think, how about you?
