Fox News reports that the mexican government thinks it has jurisdiction over US officials who presided over the policy known as Fast and Furious;
“I obviously feel violated. I feel my country’s sovereignty was violated,” Mexico Sen. Rene Arce Islas told Fox News. “They should be tried in the United States and the Mexican government should also demand that they also be tried in Mexico since the incidents took place here. There should be trials in both places.”
While my first reaction was that, yes they should, if that were to happen, then Mexico should turn over the Mexican officials who’ve violated my country’s sovereignty by aiding and abetting the millions who have invaded this country – but then it would become too expensive as we’d probably jail almost every Mexican in government service. Not to mention the Mexican government officials who have been pocketing money from the cartels over the last few decades.
They should feel lucky it was only a few thousand guns that crossed the border and not a few million weapons of mass destruction in human form.
