US officials concerned by Mexican berm near borderA reminder of our 'good friends' take on the wall...
COLUMBUS, N.M. -- American officials are concerned about a mile-long earthen berm constructed on the Mexican side of the border, apparently in response to flooding in Mexico, in August. The bulldozer-built berm, about 4 feet tall and erected about a month ago, stretches eastward from the Columbus port of entry. It has pushed over fences that divide the nations and partially buried a concrete border monument. The berm also has provided cover for people on the Mexican side who pelted U.S. Border Patrol agents with rocks, and American officials are troubled that the berm was put up without any consultation or planning with the U.S. side.
Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez declared in December, “Mexico is not going to bear, it is not going to permit, and it will not allow a stupid thing like this wall.”Technorati Tags: illegal immigration, mexico, kiss my ass
