Mexican archdiocese’s editorial sees ‘xenophobic’ attitude in US

CWN - December 09, 2011

Desde La Fe, the official publication of the Archdiocese of Mexico City, is strongly criticizing the Mexican government for its “laziness” in failing to address recent legislation on immigration enacted by some US states.

A Desde La Fe editorial referred to the “laziness, indifference and apparently also the contempt of politicians towards migrants … without seeing a significant response of our government against the arrogant, xenophobic, and racist attitude of that country [the United States].”

    "Arrogant, xenophobic and racist" attitudes, eh? Why don't their Excellencies review their own MEXICAN immigration law. It's tougher than ours, and aimed at the Guatemalans, Salvadoreans and other Central Americans who cross their Southern border without papers.
