Lets all boycott Mexico. Americans should no longer support Mexico in tourism or anything else.

We should not only boycott Mexico, we should boycott any product from Mexico and casinos, like Reno and Vegas. They are some of the biggest employers of illegals.

Let me know how that goes for those of you who happen to have vehicles that were put together in Mexico or have parts in your vehicle that was made in Mexico. BVetter think about what you are wanting to do. Though I agree with your sentiments there is no real feasibility to it at all.

While you may not be able to avoid boycotting everything what you can do is buy as much used goods as possible, that way they do not profit from your purchases.

Instead of the new car I wanted I bought one that was a year old. I looked around my home and said "If I had to move today and sell out is everything I own junk?" Of course not and that changed my attitude about buying from classified ads and second hand stores. Buying used clothing is an obstacle I have not been able to overcome yet.

I have also started to buy all my meat and vegetable from local farmers. Any adjustments you can make to stop the dollars from going into Mexico and China’s pockets will help.

I wouldn't go to Mexico. You can see some of the same landscape in California. Keep your dollars in the US. Besides, who wants Montezuma's Revenge?

Yes, since all this occuring because of $$4 thats the only way things can change. Dont buy or do business with illegals or companys that employ them. Isnt that the law anyway?

Also when hiring someone for a job or service, be aware that they might send out an American to do the sales, but then the illegals roll in later for the actual work. I ask about this upfront now when I have to do this. Amazing how many people dont want my buisness after that!
