Keep your manos gringas off our petroleo Mexicano -- Mexico. The House International Relations Committee's Republican majority passed a non-binding resolution suggesting that any US-Mexico agreement on immigration should include the de-nationalization of Pemex, Mexico's national oil company. This would allow for foreign (read US) investment in Pemex, possibly leading to eventual foreign control. We've seen what Occidental has done for Colombia; let's hope our Republitrons don't get their way and Mexico is allowed to at least maintain the level of independence that it has now. (As you may have noticed, I'm a definite Mexicophile after my trip to Chiapas last month.)
