Citizenship for All Mexicans?

This story raises a lot of questions:

Mexico's top diplomat said here Thursday that his nation wants to see Washington undertake an immigration reform extending legal status to "all the Mexicans in the U.S."

The time has come to debate that reform, "without passion, but with reason, because it mutually suits us," Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez said in Chicago, home to a burgeoning Mexican community.

Why all Mexicans? How about Mexicans who have no interest in becoming citizens? Why not give citizenship to all immigrants regardless of nationality? Is this what passes for "reason" in Mexico?

Who is "us" kemosabe?

I am pleased to see Hispanicon expose the racist nature of Mexico's arrogant demand.

For the Mexicans (in Mexico) they are the only immigrants here, the only ones that work, the only ones discriminated against. True they are the majority, but they have to remember there are also immigrants not only from latin america but from other countries as well.
