"Good citizens won't dislike this collaboration. Criminals will dislike it."

I read it and I very much dislike it! (Guess I must be a criminal.)

Sorry, but I think it's just wrong for our country to train their police forces. Why don't we just train their army and supply them with enough equipment to allow them to really invade us?
Sounds good on paper, but I can't see it working. Especially if they are going to not interfere with Mexicans crossing illegally if there is no evidence of other criminal activity. So they want to go after smugglers (of drugs and humans, I presume) but will not bother with Jose and Maria and their children as they amble along and over the border? Why not take care of ALL problems?

We have only been Neighbors for 150 years...bout time we work together.



The goal of the historic partnership: a systematic joint attack on northbound flows of drugs and migrants, and southbound shipments of guns and cash. It is part of a major, unannounced crackdown started in recent months involving hundreds of U.S. and Mexican officers in the border's busiest smuggling corridor.

"We are planting a seed of binational cooperation that interests all of us," Mexican federal police Cmdr. Armando Trevino said Tuesday in Nogales. "We are fighting a common enemy. We are going to work together like friends, like comrades, like brothers."

And good fences make good neighbors------------especially if one (Mexico) has become toxic.

I am greatly suspect in the motives of this arrangement. Pushing forth with immigration reform under the preface that illegal aliens will seek asylum from their native country due to violence from drug cartels, therefore making amnesty "OK" to the American people, in my opinion.

Politicians really think Americans are stupid.

No, itís about time they stopped pimping their underclass. Perhaps then we can consider them a good neighbor.
