Overheard at Booth 5: Two Officials

American Official: The Administration wants you to step up patrols on your border with Guatemala.  You gotta stop the migrants coming in.

Mexican Official: We are already doing everything we can.  You seem to think we have more resources than we do.

American Official: Look, we know it's tough.  So, if you were to, say, accidentally on purpose ... kill  a few of the border crossers during the course of your patrols, well, we would look the other way.

Mexican Official: We already DO that and you already DO look the other way!

American Official: OK, fine ... how about we look the other way and drop some huge bags of cash into your bank accounts as well?

Mexican Official: NOW you're talking!
