Will President Vicente Fox Cut My Yard Because I Don't Want Too

The AP Reports a disturbing report on Mexico's President.

Today President Vicente Fox refused to apologize for his comment regarding illegal Mexican workers in the United States.

Fox's spokesman, Ruben Aguilar, said Mexican and foreign news media have misinterpreted the remark as a racial slur. He said the president was speaking in defense of Mexican migrants as they come under attack by the new U.S. immigration measures that include a wall along the U.S.-California border.

Stung by the U.S. crackdown on illegal immigrants, many Mexicans including Mexico City's archbishop said Fox was just stating a fact."The president was just telling the truth," said Celedonio Gonzalez, a 35-year-old carpenter who worked illegally in Dallas for six months in 2001.

"Mexicans go to the United States because they have to. Blacks want to earn
better wages, and the Mexican because he is illegal takes what they pay him."

Fox made the comment Friday during a public appearance in Puerto Vallarta, saying: "There's no doubt that Mexican men and women full of dignity, willpower and a capacity for work are doing the work that not even blacks want to do in the United States."
