Commentator Ruben Navarrette talks about the contradictions of tightening the border between Mexico and the United States, as Presidents Fox and Bush say they want to do. Better border security could make it harder to smuggle illegal drugs and immigrants. It also could harm both the U.S. and Mexican economies: Americans benefit from cheap Mexican labor, and Mexicans depend on the earnings those workers send back home in the form of money orders.
