MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico pleaded with
President Bush on Monday to veto a Senate proposal to build a new fence to keep illegal immigrants out, saying it could backfire by making the border more dangerous.
The U.S. Senate overwhelmingly backed a bill on Friday to construct about 700 miles of fence, a project Republicans hope will impress voters calling for tougher immigration control ahead of November 7 congressional elections.
“The Mexican government strongly opposes the building of walls in the border area between Mexico and the United States,” President
Vicente Fox’s spokesman Ruben Aguilar told reporters on Monday.
“This decision hurts bilateral relations, goes against the spirit of cooperation needed to guarantee security on the common, creates a climate of tension in border communities,” he said.
Aguilar said it would send a diplomatic note to Washington later on Monday urging Bush to veto the bill, which requires the president’s signature to become law.
