Mexico "Fired Up" About Border

Source: Reuters/Yahoo!

Mexico complained to the United States in a diplomatic note on Tuesday after learning that U.S. Border Patrol agents crossed into its territory a day earlier to extinguish a fast-spreading brush fire.

Reacting quickly after winds blew a grass fire into Mexico, U.S. Border Patrol agents followed the flames across the border with two water trucks, Mexico's foreign ministry said. The ministry cited a U.S. government report it received on Tuesday.
The great irony, of course, is that this comes from a government with so much respect for the border that they publish info to help their citizens get here illegally.

Mexicans have become more sensitive about their 2,000-mile (3,200-km) border with the United States since the U.S. government decided build the barrier to reduce illegal crossings and moved soldiers to the region.

Mexico sees the barrier, being built along parts of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, as offensive and says it will be ineffective and cause more deaths by forcing illegal immigrants into harsh terrain.
Tough shit. The hypocrisy of the Mexican government is astounding. How about doing something about the illegal immigration problem from your end (HINT: fix your country so your citizens don't feel the need to desert it like a sinking ship)?

You can be as "sensitive" and "offended" as you like. It doesn't change the fact that you need to do something with your own country, instead of expecting -- demanding, even -- that the U.S. take in and care for masses of your population like uninvited foster children.
