But Mexico isn't taking in millions of our poor and starving people.

We're not trying to unload them on some other nation.

I think we should.

Let's make an organized effort to send our bottom 10% underclass to an economy with a 5% unemployment rate where more than half the citizenry are fat. Let's do nothing to prepare them to leave such as Spanish lessons. If the natives protest, well the people in question are human beings and shouldn't human beings be allowed to live where they want, right? If the people in question get sick or have no food the people of that country will provide food and medical care for them without cost because after all they are human beings!

Fair is fair, right?

If any one of us were down and out in Mexico, I suspect we would be escorted back across the border or throw in jail. They demand such empathy here but give nothing in return there. Lets send them humanitarian supplies and send them home.
