Vincente Fox criticizes Irving, Texas mayor

Ex-Mexico President Fox criticizes the city of Irving's immigration policy.

Fox, who is on a whirlwind tour promoting his new book (and to criticize U. S. immigration policies), gave speeches in Dallas/Fort Worth before the World Affairs Council, and before a group of editors and reporters at The Dallas Morning News, as well as before a crowd of 520 at the Fairmont Hotel Dallas.

Some of his notable quotes:
1.) "The Irving authorities have to reconsider what they are doing. I think they are violating human rights." (Irving, Texas has a pop. of almost 200,000 with approx 1/3 of its' residents foreign born and have decided to engage themselves with the federal immigration authorities. Nearly 1600 people in the last 12 mos. have landed in jail and turned over to federal immigration officers.)

2.) Noting that Mexico's economy had stabilized and its' population growth is less than 1%, this led him to say: "Mexico needs those people, and we want all of them back as soon as possible to build a great nation."

Me thinks you're speaking out of both sides of your mouth.
