Mexico to Build Southern Border Fence

NumbersUSA, October 6, 2010

Mexico, which often criticizes the American government for putting up barriers which restrict the flow of illegal immigrants across the U.S.-Mexico border is building a fence of its own along its southern border with Guatemala.

It has been reported that the head of the Mexican Superintendency of Tax Administration, Raul Diaz, confirmed that the Mexican government is building a wall along the Mexican-Guatemalan border. Diaz stated the official reason for building the border wall is to stop illegal drugs from coming into Mexico, but Diaz did admit that it could also prevent the free passage of illegal immigrants.

The hypocrisy of Mexico’s actions has not been lost on American politicians. {snip}
