Mexico Blasts Perry Comments About Islamists

MEXICO (AP) — Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Jose Antonio Meade says Texas Gov. Rick Perry's recent statements about the possibility that Islamic fundamentalists could be entering the U.S. from Mexico are "absurd."

Perry last week asserted that "there is a very real possibility" that Islamic terrorists could be entering the United States from Mexico across what he called an "unsecured" Southwest border. But he added that there is "no clear evidence" that they are.

Meade said in a statement Saturday that Perry's statements during a Thursday speech were based on "beliefs, speculation and absolutely unfounded and absurd analysis."
