"We routinely verify the documents of all foreigners who enter the country,"

Maybe the US should start doing this.

I'd detain Air Supply just because their music sucks so bad.

It's only useful if you have a bad case of insomnia.

"We routinely verify the documents of all foreigners who enter the country," said Antonio Sanchez, a spokesman with the Migration Institute in Nuevo Laredo.

Quick, let's hire this guy and let him do the job Americans aren't allowed to do.

"We routinely verify the documents of all foreigners who enter the country," said Antonio Sanchez, a spokesman with the Migration Institute in Nuevo Laredo. "At this time, we're verifying whether or not they have the pertinent visa."

And what if they don't?

Are you going to treat them the same way your own citizens who lack "pertinent" visas are treated on our side of the border? You know, by giving them free medical care and food stamps and stuff?

Word to Martin: It is better to have loved and lost than to have listened to "Lost In Love" by Air Supply.

What has this have to do with the subject of the post???

Mexico expects us to welcome every Mexican, and for whatever reason.

Save your music critique for a forum about music.

I'm so sorry you've had your sense of humor surgically removed.

Hope it didn't hurt too much.

If you'd read all of the posts, you might have noticed that I did have a commentary on the issue at hand.

I reserve the right to make a frivolous remark from time to time. Life is too short.

Lighten up a little. :-)

Why isn't OUR president rushing down there to DEMAND justice for OUR citizens in THEIR country?


Or better yet, next time Vicente shows up here his butt should promptly be kicked back across the border!!
