Mexico First Lady Encourages "Migration"

Mexican First Lady Margarita Zavala, wife of Mexican President Filipe Calderon, both of primarily European descent encourages illegal immigration.  I expect she is trying to rid her country of it's browner citizens who are primarily of indian descent, actually encourages migration.  Yes, I just called her a racist.
Margarita Zavala, wife of the President of Mexico, spoke at the World Youth Conference and said that migration must be seen as an opportunity for Mexico’s youth and not as a threat; also, that fear must be set aside in order to search for life’s opportunity in other countries. She added that migration represents a chance for growth, and stated: “I believe in migration not only as a reality but as an element that promotes the growth of the peoples. Unfortunately, it’s seen as a threat, and due to that youths are its main victims. I believe that what we have to do is to stop fearing migration, because doing so is to fear reality.” Further, that she was surprised about the technological advancements that have occurred on a world level, and that the same may not have happened in regard to the growth of human rights: “It’s surprising that merchandise goes from one place to another, that technology unites us and, nevertheless, there are fences and limits, especially cultural ones, for the movement of persons.”
