...as reported by BBC News.
It seems workers building part of the infamous "border fence" project -- you know, the one that Congress voted for last year, Bush agreed to build (in the name of "securing our borders") and is now on the way to being shut down ASAP by Congress and Bush -- were inadvertently working less than 40 feet inside Mexican territory when spotted by some righteous Mexicans.
The Beeb has this to say about it: Mexico's parliament has condemned what it says is a border violation by US workers building a controversial barrier between the two countries.
Ummmm...what about the wholesale, Mexican government-sanctioned invasion of the U.S.A. by 20 million illegals? Every last one of them has made it more than 40 feet into this country.
Our ambassador to Mexico, one of Bush's hand-picked open-borders clowns, said this: The US is sensitive to Mexican concerns... [and] has the deepest respect for the integrity of the sovereignty of Mexican soil".
Ain't that the truth! We are so sensitive to their concerns that we swing open the gates to those people Mexico doesn't want, letting them steal jobs from (and grab public assistance paid for by) American citizens.
But what about Mexico's respect for the integrity of the sovereignty of our soil? They don't have any.
While they use any means possible -- in some cases extremely brutal methods -- to deter illegal immigrants from crossing their country's southern border, they howl like banshees whenever Americans try to make their fleeing people abide by our laws.
And George Bush listens to them instead of his own citizens.
This is one of those times when one wishes we had a leader with the, well, guts to stand up to the corrupt jerks who have made Mexico into a disaster zone and suggest -- politely -- that if they want to scream about an inadvertent 40-foot excursion into their country, they damn well should do something themselves to control the illegals and drug-smugglers (and the gun-toting off-duty federales who guard them on their journeys) who are invading our country.
I suppose Bush will issue a contrite apology to his buddies in Mexico City and throw the offending wall-builders in jail. That's what he does to "protect our borders."
