Mexico protests Texas National Guard troops on US border

Mexico City (AFP) - Mexico's foreign ministry late Friday protested Texas Governor Rick Perry's deployment of National Guard troops to the southern US border.

Mexico "reiterates, in a firm and categorical way, its rejection of this measure," read a statement from the foreign ministry.

"No circumstance at all or change in border security exists that justifies this measure taken by the state."

The troop deployment "does not contribute in any way to solving the immigration problem," and is inconsistent with US-Mexico talks aimed at "building a modern, prosperous and safe border," the statement read.

JG: Jingoistic Rick Perry is trying to increase his support among people who are too dumb to understand that the USA is a nation of immigrants.  Both Bush and Obama share the responsibility for not being able to have secure borders for the nation, but as always, USA capitalists love their ability to exploit low intelligence and low education immigrants.
