Mexico’s Cantarell field peaked out in 2006. Alaska’s Prudhoe Bay is producing less and less oil every year. But that is happening all over the world. Oil fields are peaking out...and going into double digit declines.

“We’re using it up fast,” says Byron. “In fact, we’ve used up most of America’s oil already. I hope you enjoyed it...I know I did.”

Mexico’s national government gets an incredible 40% of its budget from the Cantarell field. “You think we have a problem with illegal immigration now,” Byron continued. “Just wait until the budget gets cut in half as revenues from oil go down.”

mexico has no intention of fixing their own economy. if we do not get a handle on the illegal immigration issue with mexico, we are going to be dealing with a more severe problem in the not so distant future. we have got to close the borders to protect our own economy from even more devastation.

No -- not as long as there are generous welfare programs here. It's still much more profitable to simply come here and give birth because then the new family will receive much government assistance -- food stamps, WIC, Medicaid, free day care, free school lunches, housing assistance. That beats working hard for a living back in Mexico.
