"Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems" it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and sending money to their families return to hometowns in Sonora without jobs, she said. (emphasis added)
Think about that. Not only can the economy of Sonora not handle the return of its native sons and daughters, it's not even able to support the people who remained behind without the remittances of the people working in Arizona. They're actually saying to their native sons and daughters...

We cannot handle your return, and we need you to go back to another country and work so you can send money back home to support the unemployed people you left behind.


Again, one has to say, what? Mexico cannot support its own people, so many leave...and the ones who stay behind cannot survive without their remittances? What are they doing all day?

Apparently the welfare state has expanded into Mexico.
I hope for Mexican citizens sake that their government will finally address the problems it has with poverty and their permanant underclass. The fact that it has gotten to such a point is a stain not only on the Mexican government but also on our own.
Way to enable, W!

They should have thought about that, when they allowed their people to come over here illegally. Duh - what, they didn't think we might deport them someday, since that is the law?! Idiots.

They were anticipating the NAU and amnesty. Most likely, they were promised by our government that the borders would remain open, and there would be no problem. They underestimated We The People. Big mistake!

Indeed they should have. I have no doubt that the borders were deliberately left wide open in anticipation that by now, the NAU agreement would be signed, sealed and delivered along with the Texas Trans corridor being completed. Unfortunately for Bush and Calderon, their plans have gone horribly wrong and Americans are fighting to maintain our sovereignty.

OOPS . . .

Interesting thought. Can someone explain to me why Mexico is so underdeveloped? They won their independence, I think, in maybe 1821 - so less than 50 years after our Revolutionary War. I don't get it. Why didn't people get busy and establish towns and cities and industry like we did in America? They are only about 1/5 the size of the USA - so what is their problem???? Why don't they have organized towns and jobs?

I think the reasons lie in history. Look at how the USA was started versus how Mexico was started. All the nations of the former British empire, the English speaking countries, have a high standard of living. In this hemisphere the top 3 nations in standard of living are the USA, Canada, and Barbados, all English speaking, all inherited a British culture which still influences.

The Spanish speaking Latin American nations don't fare so well. Mexico had a university well before there was one in the USA, the Dominican Republic had the very first for the western hemisphere but that didn't keep them ahead for long.

Actually Mexico has established towns and cities but it's the overall very centralized form of government that makes it difficult to run efficiently -- Mexico is similar in many ways to the old Soviet Union. The Independence of Texas had a lot to do with problems between the Federalists (who joined with Texas) and Santa Ana's Centralist forces. Who knows -- if the Federalists had won out, maybe Texas would not have split off, Mexico would have taken a different path.
