To the editor:
Congress is still trying to hammer out an effective immigration policy. It appears that securing our border from unwanted intruders is a major stumbling block.
This country has sent a considerable amount of employment south of our border. Manufacturing in Mexico is alive and well thanks to this migration of jobs. The U.S. is a good neighbor. It is not unreasonable to request that the Mexican government be more responsible in its obligation to be a good neighbor in return. A secure border enhances the safety of both nations when illegal drug traffic is injected into this dialogue. How Mexico could be an active force can come about in several ways. It would not take a Rhodes Scholar to design several viable methods.
Have we even asked about this? If so, was the response that of a good neighbor or that of an indifferent party to the problem?
