Mapped Out

Mexico won't be handing out maps to potential border crossers after all. But it's not because of U.S. complaints.

Instead, Mexican officials say they want to rethink the idea because they're worried the charts will give anti-immigrant groups a roadmap of likely migrant gathering spots.

This was a good result using a "third way". The U.S. derails Mexico's roadmaps (probably after exerting huge pressure on Mex.), but Mexico found how not to buckle seemingly under such pressure. Rather, Mexico throws the issue back at anti-immigrant Americans, as a face-saving maneuver. Brilliant. Did the US State Dept. via Ambassador Tony have the anti-immigrant memo handy you think?
