Mexico: We'll send you some tuberculosis, but no moths please

Mexico steps up control over imports of foreign Christmas trees
Mexico is stepping up control over imports of American and Canadian Christmas trees to avoid foreign plant bugs, the Environmental Department said Friday.

Nearly 100 special inspectors will be positioned along Mexico's 2,000-mile (3,200-kilometer) border with the United States, scrutinizing the leaves and branches of the 800,000 Christmas trees it expects to flow south this season, said Hector Gonzalez, Assistant Attorney General of Natural Resources.

Meanwhile we welcome any invader with communicable diseases to walk across our borders, then we spend tax money to assist them with their medical problems. Stories like this are just a sad irony.

They just like their plant bugs better. They're much bigger and meaner.
