Why wouldn't the Mexicans be fearful?
Who's hypocrisy is this?

Many in Mexico don't agree with the illegal immigration to the US, and they don't want it in their country either.

That's certainly NOT the position of the Mexican government, you only have to listen to Calderon to figure that out.

Tough! Since the Mexican government does want and does help illegals to come to our country then it is hypocritical because of the way that the Mexican government acts and talks about our country. You get what you give and that is good.

Well you have to give the Mexican citizens some credit here, at least they notice when the government is about to take their jobs away. Here in the US nobody noticed until there were 40 gabizillion here, and they started marching in the streets. Since "the march" seems to be the landmark for which many of you became activists.

Plus if you read the article, they are talking about privatizing the oil industry again, which would allow foreign companies to come in, basically this is outsourcing not really immigration.

I do give them credit. Good on them. I just have to wonder, since those people are willing to protest their government, why is it that the ones who come here illegally are not willing to fight for their country?

Why? Because they know greedy American companies will pay them 10times more than what they make SOB, and how much impact do the poor make in politics here? Now imagine that impact reduction SOB.

The question for them is: why stay?

But many do.

I don't pretend to know how every Mexican person feels but after having grown up half my life in Texas, I can tell you I have known alot of people from South of the boarder and I have yet to meet one who felt it necessary to come here illegally. Even the ones who consider themselves religious are more then happy to break our laws.

Its never been a two way street between the US and Mexico. Have you ever looked into owning land in Mexico? How about taking a car to Mexico and selling it? How about getting dual citizenship?

Oh please!!!! The poorer people of this country have much impact on politics in this country. All one has to do these days is to see who the politicians have been pandering to as of late...Hispanics of course. I really wish they would leave our country and go back to their own country. We don't want them and are sick of them getting special benefits that even citizens do not get.
