President Bush has encountered a lot of anger south of the border about U.S. immigration policy and especially his approval of a new 700-mile border fence. That must have been frustrating for him, because he’s such a champion of comprehensive immigration reform that would not just stem the migration but put some undocumented residents on a path to citizenship. Mexican President Felipe Calderon did say Tuesday that “we want to generate jobs for Mexicans here in Mexico, because that is the only way to truly solve the migratory issue.” Still, if anybody should be on the defensive about U.S. immigration, it should be the leaders of the countries these people are fleeing.
