Mexican President Vicente Fox was in New York City at the United Nations
and he gave a speech.(Resalta Fox la solidez de las instituciones
, Siglo de Torreon, September 19th, 2006)
Fox talked about a lot of things
in his speech. He defended Mexico’s political institutions, condemned terrorism, had good things to say about peace, respect, development, dialogue and cooperation,
defended indigenous rights
, defended rights of the handicapped
, spoke up for reform of the Security Council and peace in the Middle East
But he didn’t even mention one of his favorite topics.
Regarding the UN speech, a newspaper caption in the Mexican media reads “In a discourse in which he did not take up the migratory subject…”
It’s highly uncommon for Vicente Fox
to make a speech on U.S. soil
that doesn’t mention immigration. So following the journalistic “Man Bites Dog”
principle the Mexican newspaper thought it worthy to point out that fact.
