This week, however, my column on the Mexidata.info website is a positive article about the SRE. Why? Well, this is an article about the Mexican foreign ministry's good work in getting Mexicans out of Egypt. Several hundred Mexicans were in that nation when the current tumult began. You can read it here:A Mexican Tourist's Nightmare in Volatile Egypt.
In Egypt, the SRE isn't meddling in domestic politics, it is helping evacuate Mexicans from the country, a legitimate diplomatic activity. That's the difference.
And it's an interesting contrast. The SRE helps Mexicans who feel endangered to evacuate Egypt. The same SRE helps illegal alien Mexicans to stay in the United States. Sounds like Mexicans don't have it so bad here, doesn't it?
