Mexicans aren't the cheapest possible workers -- they can easily be replaced by cheaper workers.

They really need to be trying to make Mexico a self-reliant nation -- which it once was.

Just another way for Washington to destroy another American industry. Before you know it our very own independent truckers won't be able to stay in business. And the majors will be hiring Mexicans, because they will get them cheaper.

Actually, a few years ago, Mexico was one of the world's "heavyweights" in the field of leather goods--particularly leather shoes, belts, and boots. The industry has been all but destroyed now, and its employees 'cut loose'...because it couldn't compete in labor costs, with China. Perhaps that's 'payback" for the fact that we lost most of OUR leather industry decades ago (no doubt in large measure due to competition from Mexico)..makes you wonder where it will all end.....
