The Mexican Government and the Mexican People.. The Mexican People really should hold their government accountable and DO MORE for their OWN country rather than jump a fence illegally into the U.S. and expect U.S. taxpayers to bail them out!

The Mexican government should also be doing more to inform their people about the problems of breeding so many children whom they cannot financially or socially provide for.

Yes. That government's inability to provide for it's own citizens is horrible. They really are in need of a president who can lead the citizens into prosperity, not disparity. This just didn't happen overnight either, it's been going on for years. I'm afraid any aid we send to Mexico will be a large funnel, much like the government bailouts/handouts are here in our own country, and little or no accountability.

Why don't we move this to the Mexican forum and see what they have to say about it.

The Mexican Culture that encourages a family first and live for today thinking. (I like their way of thinking but it creates less economic growth)

Mexico needs to take care of it's own people and educate them to stop reproducing and running to us for benefits.

Yes, it's the government, but it's the people first.

There is no reason, since they see very well how to manipulate OUR gorernment, that they can't figure out how to manipulate their own and make things better right where they are.

Another culture that used to do that same thing is Italian..........

The difference is that today's Italy; for the most part (Sicily still being something of a holdout) now follows stereotypical First World mores as in the people placing their trust in a central government that is reasonably competent---------much like the UK, France, Germany, Scandinavia, USA, Canada, Japan, Botswana, etc.

I don't think this is much of an issue. Mexico's fertility rate is 2.8 kids per household compared to the US's 2.0. Governments that should be more worried about this are in places like:

Yemen: 7.6
Somalia: 7.3
Uganda: 7.1
Afghanistan: 6.9
Angola: 6.8
Malawi: 6.8
Niger: 6.8
