  • Sen. Reid (yea) calls defeat a win for a "status quo that amounts to silent amnesty".
  • Sen. Specter (yea) said: "We have to find some way to deal with [the 12 million undocumented immigrants] which is realistic."
  • Sen. Kennedy (yea) said "[W]e are in the struggle for the long haul."
  • Sen. Webb (yea): "Enforce the laws on the books."
  • Sen. Sander (nay) says his concerns with the bill centered around the middle class.
  • Sen. Harkin (nay) said: "America is a nation of immigrants, but we are a nation that believes in controlled immigration."

The Mexican president is sad because the plot to give him massive more political control in US affairs has failed. Boo Freakin' Hoo. Fix your rotten country and leave us ALONE.

Maryst,

Why don't you look at root problems instead of making generalizations like "rotten country". You'll realize a lot of the root problems in Mexico are problems that originated at the macro level -- and certainly, to some extent (be it large or small), the U.S. as the capitalist leader of the world, aggravated those macro problems at the micro level in its southern neighbor.

Your kinds of comments are illustrative of non-progressive thinking (be it right or left leaning). So sad.

Mexico's problems are mainly due to its corruption and its criminal disregard for its own citizens. Mexico only spends 10 percent of its entire GDP on social services and infrastructure because it's superrich refuse to pay taxes. 40 percent of Mexico's population admitted that they do not want to live there anymore. That is a failure on a colossal scale. As long as people you continue to make every excuse possible for Mexico's problems, they will never change. That's really what's "so sad."
