Mexico is never going to have floors, cabinets, inside bathrooms if it's people won't build any there but continue to run to the USA to have Americans provide everything for them.

But seriously that is a completely goofy argument for unlimited and illegal immigration. Most Mexican homes have floors, cabinets and even inside bathrooms. There are those who don't have them, but they also didn't stay in school, started having children at a very young age and don't make an effort to improve themselves. It's just too easy to be smuggled into the USA and then demand all the nice things we have here instead of making any effort to improve things back home.

And one of the saddest things about Mexico is it has a much nicer climate than most of the USA yet the former nation is a broken dysfunctional society. About the one thing the USA has in (relative) abundance is water.

Bottom line: if we (the USA) were to lose 60% of our population and we swapped countries (all Mexican nationals heading to an empty USA)--------the former Mexico would become a socioeconomic powerhouse within one generation due to our much better culture.
