FAIR SAYS NO NAFTA WITHOUT EFFECTIVE IMMIGRATION CONTROLS

 WASHINGTON, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Washington-based national group the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) today called on the Clinton administration to ensure that the U.S.-Mexico border is brought under effective management and control before it submits NAFTA to Congress for approval.
 The executive director of FAIR, Dan Stein, said today that, while the signing of side agreements on labor and environmental protection are an important, positive step, "failure to include provisions for comprehensive U.S.-Mexico border security would be a monstrous betrayal to the American worker."
 Stein said NAFTA, as proposed, is clearly a more urgent priority to Mexico than for the United States: "Given that our leverage is at a high water mark right now, shouldn't we be negotiating better cooperation from Mexico in allowing interior repatriation of Mexican nationals and in developing better border infrastructure, border structures and joint apprehension and detention programs? If not now, when?" he asked.
