L. Gomez Romero, 'How the US is outsourcing border enforcement to Mexico' (2016) 29 November The Conversation 1-6.

Abstract

In describing the complex relationship between the two countries, Jeffrey Davidow, American ambassador to Mexico from 1998 to 2002, spoke of "the bear and the porcupine". The US is an arrogant bear, brawny and insensitive to Mexico's concerns. Mexico is a resentful porcupine, paranoid about American plots to undermine its sovereignty.
