TEZIUTLAN, Mexico — As the U.S. economy heads south, Mexicans may have to head north.

That's the fear of many workers here, where the slowdown in the United States already has cut production at manufacturing plants whose output is largely sold in the United States.

Time to pass and enforce employer sanctions laws nationwide.

Yes -- that tends to be how that government solves every problem -- get more people to head to the USA. Time for another edition of that how-to-break-USA-laws comic book.

Brought to you by the governments of United States, Mexico and our wonderful elitist companies.

Including a special edition chapter for CEO's on how to cover up and pretend like you didn't know they were illegal.

Only congress can do that, SC tried to do it but they failed. So far only 2 states have been able to pass such laws but they even face legal challenges in court.

And every challenge thus far has been denied--------even the 9th Circuit Court refused to hear the complaints against Arizona's law.

True. The cheap labor CEO's have been doing very well with the falling wages they have from bringing in illegals. I know for a fact that there are illegals working in factories in Chicago making $6 an hour which is absurd.

And things in Mexico aren't really better, now they depend on us for food when before Mexico was pretty much self-sufficient for food.

An economic downturn here, or rise in food prices will definitely hurt them in Mexico.

Yeah the economy might be slowing down, but when the housing market revs back up the amigos will head north. There's always a demand for housing, and with 300 million people and growing, there will always be a demand for immigrants for the demand of homes. If you don't think the housing industry is enormous, well your living in a shell. Most illegal immigrants are employed in restraunts, construction, and hospitality.

Americans are not reproducing at very high rates so there really isn't that demand for housing.

And why isn't there a demand for housing in Mexico? Now that they know how to build houses, why not go back home and build some there? Why are all the solutions to Mexico's problems involve sneaking into the USA? Why not reform Mexico, make it more liveable?

The problem with housing -- Americans had houses, and we didn't need millions of new cheaply constructed houses built. There weren't enough buyers for these cheaply constructed but very expensive houses that had good credit and an ability to pay for these houses so many of these houses were sold with subprime loans and interest only loans -- to the illegals themselves.

It was terrible for our economy because so much of it was about big quick profits from building poorly constructed houses practically overnight, selling them for far too much money and giving out credit to the credit-unworthy. Big bucks were made by the housing developers and much fraud was committed to give out loans. Illegals were getting nice paychecks and sending the money back to Mexico but not investing here. So where has that gotten us?

In the future because we're not breeding at incredible rates, we still don't need houses for Americans, but cheap labor illegals breeding at incredible rates still can't afford the cost of living in this country.

It would be best for all if they return home and start building houses in Mexico -- kick off Mexico's housing boom. It's far far cheaper for them to live in Mexico and it would be better for them to do something about reforming their own country so it's not just a never-ending cycle of illegal immigration.
