#1 I like it! it announces their loyalties and delegitimizes the efforts to grant illegals the benefits of jumping the turnstiles over those applying legally. Those making the efforts to immigrate legally are what has made the country strong. Those sneaking in have little respect or "pride of ownership" when they get in via amnesties. Fox is doing us a favor, and the Donks a huge catastrophe when the mixed-loyalty argument comes up

#2 You stole my thunder, Frank. By voting, the illegals in the US are stating that they are Mexican citizens. I'm sure that the Donks will still try to get them on the voting rolls in the US. Duel er dual citizens, don't ya know.

#3 Mexican candidates have been campaigning for years in the U.S. for donations and support. The U.S. Latino/Chicano community is obviously one of the wealthiest and most influential communities in all of Latin America and they exert a lot of pull on the politics in their home countries.

Fox has been a disappointment. He was a pro-American, pro-business conservative and chumy with Bush. But obviously he's a politician and not above pandering to anti-Yanqui sentiment and pushing hard for every (wrong-headed) immigrant initiatives.

The WOT has meant that we've had little time to think about things in our own hemisphere. Much as they carp about Yanqui imperialist interference in their politics, there is nothing that they hate more than being ignored.
