The truth is, an educated Mexican citizen does not live in a dirt floor shack made of wood pallets and corrugated tin roofs. They live a pretty high standard of living, but also the Mexican universities and schools are not terrible. They can be very interesting, some of the campuses are beautiful.

But no -- better to rant and rave and stomp your feet and insist your own country is so horrendous you can't possibly go there to study.
Educated Mexicans (Bachelors and up) do not cross the border illegally, it is fairly easy to come to the US to work and even migrate permanently eventually using skilled work visas...

Changing the Constitution to fix the overly broad language of the 14th and changing the visa policies? Now you're getting somewhere that has some meat on the bones.
All true. Rubio is one of the shiftiest politicians I have seen in a long while. Everyone seems to forget his part in the courthouse fiasco....as well as, the way he got his home and his MIL or mothers home, I can't remember. He is a politician on the take, IMO. When he gets set up as a presidential contender, after he is seasoned a bit, the borders will be completely opened. He is being groomed for that job......but he would never get my vote.

Good article, Rubio's flip flop is apparent as we have seen it with so many politicians-McCain, Ried, Obama.....
