Bauer's Remarks

July 01, 1989

Steven Bauer, an actor of Cuban origin, is suddenly an expert on Mexican-American relations. In Bart Mills' June 19 article, " 'Desperados' Relives the Brutal Murder of a U.S. Drug Agent," Bauer stated that the Mexican people "don't like us; they really don't." Also that Mexicans want to make our country "look stupid, which is what Mexicans live for."

Funny, but I get different vibes. On the whole the Mexican people admire and respect our political system and our immense wealth and power. Many certainly want to live here! When they compare their corrupt government, ballot box fraud and other social ills with mainstream America, we come out smelling like a rose.
