Jefferson Morley has inspired a slew of varied comments with his summary of the Mexican media's reaction to US President Bush's announcement that he will deploy National Guard troops to fortify the border. Boz argues that “there is a role for the military in our border defense, keeping the bad guys out, and it takes that task seriously. It is not the military's job to prevent illegal immigration. Tonight's speech will be sold as national security, but make no mistake, it's all about politics.” So far there has been little reaction in the Mexican blogosphere.
