Former Mexican official: Immigrants will become Mexico’s burden if US doesn’t take more

A former Mexican cabinet member says the U.S. should accept more low-skill migrants from Central America, because otherwise the migrants would stay in Mexico.

If they can’t get into the United States,“they’re going to stay in Mexico, creating a burden for us that we have to carry,” Jorge Castañeda said on “Al Punto,” a Spanish-language show on Univision.

“I think Mexico should raise its voice much more clearly and forcefully to say that if the United States wants a wall, it needs to have more doors in this wall, with more bells at these doors so that Mexicans and Central Americans can enter the United States with papers,” he said, as translated

He criticized the items in the bill meant to address border security, as well as concern to the number of temporary work visas the bill will create, which he believes to be too small.

The Center for Immigration Studies reports that Castañeda criticized the Mexican government for being too passive when discussing the bill with the United States, out of respect for not becoming involved in foreign affairs.

Immigrants hoping to enter the United States, legally or illegally, will invariably pass through Mexico to get there, Castañeda said. Assuming they can’t get into the country, with the heightened border security, he predicted that they will just stay in Mexico.

The U.S. needs to provide more temporary work visas to ensure that these illegal immigrants become U.S. citizens, rather than a “burden” that Mexico will have to deal with.

Castañeda projected that the number of temporary work visas the bill will create, currently sitting at 20,000 per year, should be raised to “at least 150,000 to 200,000.”

Former Mexican official huh? What a wanker. Those people are Mexico's responsibility in the first place and this guy is whining about having to deal with such a "burden"?

We have been such a stupid country when it comes to this issue. They are not our problem and we should keep them from entering illegally. Period. And continue to systematically round them up and send them back. While we're at it we can send them some of our "burdens" to deal with for a few decades like our gang bangers, thugs, criminally insane. Payback's a bitch.

I think the important idea is to find quotes from failures & pretend they're important, so you're impotent, right ??

Carry on, "men" ?
