And forget the sad stories about their children starving to death in Mexico.

Latin American Herald Tribune - Parents Blamed for Mexico Leading the World in Child Obesity

Figures reviewed in the Obesity, Nutrition and Family symposium, held Thursday in the Mexican capital, indicated that 70 percent of Mexican children are overweight, and that this country has forged ahead of the United States as the world leader in obese youngsters.

Mexico holds second place in obesity among adults with about 46 percent being overweight, half of whom never seek treatment to control their girth.

Shouldn't this thread be titled, Mexicans attempt illegal immigration and get caught, deported home and nothing has changed?

I think Mexico has changed. It's middle class is growing and it's going to beat us in obesity rates in no time.

Mexico's unemployment rates are about half of what ours are. There is no major hardship -- if an illegal is deported to a border town, it's pretty easy to get a job in a maquila. Or go back where they came from and there are jobs. In many cities in Mexico you see a lot of construction going on, things are hustling and bustling.

Mexico is not the hell-hole so many illegals insist it is.

Quite so. In spite of the drug violence the Mexican economy has improved and is predicted to continue to do so. A deported illegal may have a better chance of finding employment in Mexico than he would if he were unemployed in the USA. Of course in Mexico he would be expected to support himself, and those goodies supplied by the US taxpayer would vanish. No section 8 housing, no WIC vouchers, no free school breakfasts and lunches, no free medical care at the local friendly ER, etc.

Mexico don't want the illegals back because one deported illegal lessens
the 2nd highest financial resource for Mexico.

And that's the kicker that keeps them here.
