Meddling Mexican Foreign Secretary
Ernesto Derbez
Mexican Foreign Minister Ernesto Derbez (right) speaks at a press conference in Mexico City, May 20, 2003. Derbez announced new measures designed to protect illegal migrants trying to enter the United States. Derbez said Mexico would crack down on illegal migrant smugglers which migrants pay to take them across the border. -- Derbez's predecessor, obnoxious reconquista and rabid Marxist Jorge Castañeda, quit in January, 2003 after he failed to successfully dump millions of impoverished Mexican strip-miners off on the United States via an amnesty scam, something that Mexico never seems to give up on.
