Friday, July 07, 2006Interview with Calderon
This interview is worth reading. I particularly like this point, made by Calderon:
It is more effective, in order to reduce migration, to build one kilometer of one highway in Guanajuato, than ten kilometers of the wall [in] Texas or Arizona.

The flaw in this otherwise brilliant plan: somehow I don't see the U.S. Congress (i.e. the folks who will take our money and use it to pay for the wall) ponying up to build a highway in Mexico.

I'm not sure he was being literal... I read it as 'promoting economic development in Mexico will do more to stop immigration than a wall.'
