Rossi says: "The burning question for those of us on the left in the US*
really is how to best engage the immigrants, documented and otherwise, who
are part of the broad Mexican diaspora on these issues.  I don't think an
automatic hostility to AMLO is the best method, but that doesn't mean being
dishonest about the fact that he's a bourgeois politician, with all that
implies."

Yes, by all means, go in their with both barrels of crtiticism of AMLO as a
bourgeois politician blazing. This will not only preserve the American
left's purity about México, but it will also help reduce any tendency on the
part of Mexican immigrants to take seriously anyone on the U.S. left.
