I wish they'd get so anti-American that they'd all get in a huff and leave and get some real Mexican pride and go back and build their country up.
Exactly

Calderon: Anti-American Feeling Is Growing in Mexico

Good! Maybe now they understand that we don't need them here and we certainly don't want them here. When asked about a solution of course El Presidente mentions the dream act and the U.S. needing to take action but no mention of Mexico doing anything to help matters.

If Calderon had an ounce of integrity he would keep his trap shut. His citizens are whining about their new immigration law, and it hasn’t even been implemented. I would hate to see how they would react if they had 10% of the poor and uneducated from Guatemala living illegally in their country, sucking them dry. Talk about hypocrisy.

Citizens react to Mexico’s new immigration law.

Mexico
That is not a credit source. If you really want to know why Mexicans are outraged, you should see the Mexican media. Its not because immigration reform has not passed but rather because of the confession of the U.S. ATF agent who said it was U.S. DOJ and the ATF who planned an operation to infiltrate US fire arms in Mexico.

I too would be upset. Mexicans are spending billions to fight a war against drugs. Mexican police, politicians and Mexican citizens die every day...thousands since 2005, only to find out that the American government is buddy buddy with the Mexican drug cartel thugs. Yes, they have every right to be upset.

In that case, I would expect them to be equally upset with their own government, including their military, due to collusion with the cartels. Are they?

They are Benicar. Since Calderon took office he vowed to disarm corrupt members of the military. I dont know how much you have read but I've known of complete Justice Departments to be disarmed and 90% of its staff sent to prison for connection to the cartels. I have also read how corrupt police have lead trucks loaded with drugs at full speed toward the border, only to be stopped by the military with gunfire. Many Mexican military have died protecting the cause, protecting Americans from more drugs being sent this way.
