Vicente Fox Comments
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox made the following statements the other day during a stop in Iowa.
During the student panels with Fox Friday, Tara Runghee asked the former Mexican President for his reaction to a quote by Republican President candidate Tom Tancredo on his campaign web site. "Illegal aliens threaten our economy and undermine our culture... as President, I will secure our borders so illegal aliens do not come, and I will eliminate benefits and job prospects so they do not stay."
"He should not have a Spanish name," Fox said of Tancredo.
"We need to work on a guest worker program similar to what Mexico has with Canada. The people go up for 6 or 9 months, are sheltered then flown back home. No one wants to leave their country. Trust me, they would much rather be closer to family and friends enjoying tortillas."
