Last night, President Bush said "Mexico is our neighbor, Mexico is our friend."

After hearing the President`s call for National Guard troops on the border, our friends in Mexico took to the airwaves and threatened to sue us...yes, sue us for detaining illegal aliens in our own country.

"If there is a real wave of rights abuses, if we see the National Guard starting to directly participate in detaining people ... we would immediately start filing lawsuits through our consulates," Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez said in an interview with a Mexico City radio station.[Mexico Threatens Suits Over Guard Patrols By Will Weissert, Associated Press 5/16/06]

Never has the adage been truer: With friends like these, who needs enemies?
