The cause of immigration is over-population due the lack of birth control and the fact that the Govt of the Country doesn't care about it's poor. Case closed.

Any other excuse is just that, an excuse.

cheap subsidized genetically modified corn doesnt that sound like technology that we discover in the late 1980's

I called it Karma, American business intentions was to make more money, instead they got a long list of headaches.

How about the corrupt Mexican government and the ex-president's brother who runs the Conosupo stores that undercut the farmers' prices so much they had to pretty much give up raising crops?

see thats the thing they could have keep exploiting its own domestic market sort of like our bankrupt country subsiding industries that cannot self support themselves. So just view it as a big tariff, now the farmers keep doing the same thing cause they did not no any diffrent til america came and defenitely destroy their way of income.

the funny thing now is, that Mexico is our 2nd destination of agricultural products lol..and guess what? with their labor.

so who did who to who? what needs to be corrected?
we complain that illegals suppress wages, why hasnt our government
enforce the laws? and strikethe farming industry first?

corruption...theres a saying that says
Money talks - everything else walks

agree, if you disagree then you must have diffrent principles than most of us that has bankrupt america with our consuming ways.

importing and exporting has been something that has gone on for
centuries. Many things are imported because we do not produce/make it here.
Many things are exported because they are not produced
elsewhere. Fruits and vegetables is something to where we produce much
of our own, and I find no need to buy from mexico.. I do not buy, if from
mexico.. plus I grow much of my own. With all the American produce
available.. that is one area no need to import. And without knowing how
or what it was grown in.. I wouldn't buy it.. not just mexico but from any
other country as well that I feel does not have tight agricultural guidelines.
With ALL of the many, many documentaries, news stories and such showing
us how mexico has contaminated water... raw sewage draining into land
because of very poor or no sewage system, the thought of ever buying any
produce grown in mexico is something I avoid.
Spark-plugs for the car, a paint brush, are things I don't have a problem with..
but any kind of food.. forget it. Just like I do buy any frozen or canned items
that came from china, and other countries as well. We have had enough
problems in our country with food items getting contaminated.. even with the
tight regulations we have... so who can really say or really guarantee us that
produce from mexico is safe. I for one, do not.. and I am sure there are millions
of other Americans who feel the same way.
If the items are not marked (origin).. I ask. More and more food items are now
being regulated to where they must mark country of origin.. why.. because we
Americans pushed for it. better safe than sorry.
