America's best friends have spoken:
Gains by Democrats in the US congressional elections may help promote more liberal immigration policies sought by Mexico, President Vicente Fox's spokesman has said.Calderon will be meeting with Bush later today, and will probably say something similar.
...[The border fence] angered Mexico, which has more faith in the Democrats on immigration. In midterm elections on Tuesday, Democrats won control of the House and were near taking control of the Senate as vote counts continued in an outstanding race.
"We hope this new make-up of the US Congress can be a catalyst for the US government working toward a migration reform with the characteristics proposed by Mexico," Fox's spokesman Ruben Aguilar said...
..."I hope this also obliges the refocus toward our region, toward our nation," [Foreign Minister Luis Ernesto Derbez] said.
