Mexico - borders, relationships, and future prospects

When I ran this post, I decided to fire off an email to Smiley and Dr. Demarche at The Daily Demarche. They are a frequent read for me. They describe their site as:

A blog by members of the State Department Republican Underground- conservative Foreign Service Officers serving overseas commenting on foreign policy and global reactions to America.

I asked them if they could comment on the subject of my post, the "Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America Prosperity Agenda", since Heavy-Handed is concerned about our southern border with Mexico, and they being in the State Department, I figured well maybe they just might be able to share some insight into this matter.

That led them to post a fine piece (albeit not a glowing prospect) on Mexico, and our borders with them. It should be noted that in Mexico you can be elected president only once to a 6 year term. And, the party Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI) (The Institutional Revolutionary Party) whom Vincente Fox defeated last time around, and which spent many years as a corrupt and repressive regime, appear poised to be voted back into power this summer. Despite Fox's failings, this would not be a positive development for us.

I suggest you pay The Daily Demarche a visit and read their post, " Return of the perfect dictatorship"?
