How Mexicans View the Immigration Bill and Border 'Surge'

Hosted by

To maximize support from reluctant Republicans, the Senate's new immigration reform proposal emphasizes "border security" by doubling Border Patrol officers to 40,000, completing 700 miles of fencing and requiring 24-hour surveillance by unmanned drones. How does that sound on the other side of the border? On Univision TV this week, Mexico's former Foreign Secretary said increased security measures remind him of what happens on the borders of enemy countries, like North and South Korea. He is Jorge Castañeda, Foreign Secretary to former Mexican President Vicente Fox and Professor at New York University.
