This is what I in heard in the news. Seems the new president of Mexico is doing better then Obama.
Mexico has found new oil sites, while Obama doesn't want to explore for oil, but will buy it from Mexico.
The new president is crackining down on the drug cartels, hope he succeeds. Is more conservative then Obama. Things are looking up for Mexico, the U.S. is going nowhere. We will soon see when the illegal aliens sneak home. But, from what I heard Mexico now has a good president and a better future.

Why not with millions of poor leaving the country.

Also the new government is going to focus more on bettering their economy rather than fighting drugs with the US partnership.

HT, immigration from Mexico is net balanced (in is the same as out) so, no, we don't have millions of poor entering the US from Mexico at this time.

The US economy is much larger. The dollar figure of GDP growth is, therefore, greater in the US.

Yes I know. I have heard for at least a decade if no longer that ONLY 11 million illegals are in the US.

For every one that comes, one goes back.

I'm sure Mexico will offer schools that teach in English, offer welfare, free health care, free education and career opportunities to Americans that break their immigration laws too.

The reason that Mexico is doing better is because millions of their poor, uneducated and unskilled jumped our borders and that is precisely why we are doing worse.

Mexico has more low-hanging fruit, so to speak, than the US does.

Also, if you measure economic health by, "a range of economic metrics including inflation, unemployment, corporate profit growth, stock market performance, household income growth, economy (GDP) growth, months in recession and others," then Democratic president make for healthier economies than Republicans.

I chock the difference up to the Republicans being deeper into neoliberal economics than the Democrats.
