Mexicans Denounce Border Fence

Can anyone tell me why this is a problem and why we are even listening to this?

Mexican lawmakers have lambasted the Bush administration's plans to erect more border fences and use other devices aimed at curtailing illegal immigration.
"We are profoundly disheartened by the (U.S.) position of solving the migration problem through walls, infrared rays, cameras and unmanned aircraft," said Roberto Pedraza Martinez of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, El Universal reported Thursday.
Earlier this week, U.S. President George W. Bush said he was working to step up border enforcement and the deportations of illegal immigrants.
At the same time, Bush defended the guest worker program that allows Mexicans to remain in the country on temporary work visas.
About 1 million Mexicans are arrested every year trying to enter the United States illegally.

For the most part this is where I have diagreed with Pres. Bush the most, he hasn't done enough about illegal immigration, but this is just a baby step in the right direction. If people are complaining, you are doing something right. As a mexican/native american servicemember, I don't believe the illegal immigrants should be given a free pass (or bus/plane/train ride over here like the mexican gov't would like.) If they want to come here and work great, but do it the right way, not by jumping a fence or swimming the rio grande either!
