President George W. Bush, in Mexico for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in October 2002, said: "The long-term answer for the migration issue is to work in a way that encourages commerce on both sides of the border so people can find jobs here in Mexico, for starters. That's the long-term solution [the U.S. supports efforts] to develop industry together in the midst of Mexico, in the south of Mexico, so that people are more likely to find work at home."
The Mexican government launched a campaign in Fall 2002 to persuade the U.S. government to legalize the status of an estimated 3.5 million unauthorized Mexicans in the U.S. Foreign Relations Secretary Jorge Castaneda said "we will begin to work very hard to convince the U.S. government a migrant accord is indispensable." President Vicente Fox in November 2002 asserted that it is time to reach "an integral agreement" on legalization, while Bush said the U.S. was working on plans for "creative new policies so that immigration is legal, orderly and safe."
U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said that the U.S. would start with less controversial issues, such as temporary work visas and an expanded guest-worker program, but not legalization. However, Antonio Garza Jr., a Texas-born friend of President Bush who grew up in Matamoros, Mexico, was confirmed as ambassador to Mexico in November 2002 and said the U.S. "should recognize the contribution of undocumented Mexicans and open the door for them to earned legalization. Talks should center on the criteria that will allow people to obtain this status." Garza said a guest worker program that is market-driven, tied to U.S. labor needs and does not "displace people who are already in the work force" also should be part of bilateral discussions.
U.S. advocacy groups are stepping up their efforts to expand or develop a new guest worker program. Daniel Griswold of the Cato Institute asserted: "America's immigration laws are colliding with economic reality, and reality is winning. Migration from Mexico is driven by a fundamental mismatch between a rising demand for low-skilled labor in the U.S. and a shrinking domestic supply of workers willing to fill those jobs."
Candido Morales, a Mixtec Indian from Oaxaca, was named to head the Office for Mexicans Abroad. A Chicano Studies graduate from Sonoma State University, Morales has worked for the California Human Development Corp., which provides training to migrant and seasonal farm workers. Many of those trying to get Mexico to allow Mexicans in the U.S. to vote noted that Morales has little experience in Mexican politics.
A serial radio program based on a book by Eduardo Romero was aired in several Mexican states in November. Written in the style of a novela, or soap opera, the program warns would-be migrants about the dangers of crossing the border illegally and the realities of living in the U.S. The characters in the stories range from a migrant who spends all his money on liquor to an migrant nicknamed "Yes-yes," who is tricked by his boss because he does not speak English.
Mexico issued about 425,000 matricula consular ID cards to Mexicans in the U.S. in 1997 and again in 1998, 500,000 in 1999 and 2000, and 695,000 in 2001; almost one million may be issued in 2002.

It's strange to think that good men have died to defend the borders we now claim we have no moral right to protect.

I've seen estimates in other publications which put the illegal number at 8-10 million. That means this problem is much WORSE than this article indicates.
