Douglas MacArthur said: "We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction."


But I don't think that applies here. Now this absurd quote,
Why is it our corn can cross the border to "compete" in Mexico's economy but Mexicans can't cross the border to compete here? Seriously? Really?

Sally Kohn, whose proclaimed title is "Chief Agitation Officer". Just another idiot who is endorsing the exploitation of an underclass composed of other countries' citizens.

I am still wondering why the people of Mexico don't rise up and force their OWN government to make things better for them there. From what I read Mexico is NOT a totally impoverished country and has plenty of people able and willing to work. Why is Mexico allowed to treat their own people the way they do making it necessary for them to leave to survive? Why is Mexico "allowed" to treat their citizens in an "atrocious" way? If we can protest the way China stomps on human rights, why not Mexico?

People give the US crap but I have yet to see anyone DEMAND that Mexico take care of it's own.

A lot of people are asking those same questions.

What is especially galling is why Poland: a nation that not only suffered grevious losses during Word War II 65 years ago and was under the yoke of Communism till 21 years ago (ca. $20K per capita income) has flat blown Mexico out of the water socioeconomically (ca. $14K per capita income) ---------never mind the latter place has NOT had any military action on its own land since 1910 (Mx civil war)
