Their economy is funded by our money being sent back there! I'm sure all those drug dealers spending their money there helps also.

All economies depend on the U.S economy. You know, except Cuba

HaHa I like that. Thanks for the humor you included here. The truth when it is humorous is scary though.

I couldn't imagine the pressure politicians are under. I'm positive they're scared ****less. I don't know how Bernanke sleeps at night.

And American corporations moving their factories from the U.S. to south of the border doesn't hurt.
But I guess it makes us all feel better if we assume Mexicans are to blame for all our problems, huh?

And if Mexico's drug dealers are helping the economy, then American drug dealers must be REALLY being doing their part here in the states. People who live in Latin American countries are the wholesale. The market is here.

I would rather see low wage US jobs in Mexico being done by Mexicans legally than having all of the above here in the USA except the Mexican workers would be illegal here.

Although; with the growing unrest SOB, we may see many so-called 'low wage' business flee back north due to the Rule of Law here in the USA-----and, gladly pay Gringo wages.

That's true. There is also a kind of illegal who is an informal temporary guest worker who does not intend to stay forever. Some go back on their own, they just came to work for a bit, get over some financial difficulty or even just for the adventure of it, see the USA or whatever but they want to go home and do go home.

Those aren't the real problem. They return to their families and homes back in Mexico, they aren't here to get on welfare or demand instant citizenship. They may be here illegally for a time but they plan to go home.
