Mexico and Central America DEMAND More U.S. Immigration

This is rich:

Diplomats from Mexico and Central America on Monday demanded guest worker programs and the legalization of undocumented migrants (illegal immigrants -- ed.) in the United States, while criticizing a U.S. proposal for tougher border enforcement.

Meeting in Mexico's capital, the regional officials pledged to do more to fight migrant trafficking, but indirectly condemned a U.S. bill that would make illegal entry a felony and extend border walls.

"Migrants, regardless of their migratory status, should not be treated like criminals," they said.

News flash: Crossing the U.S. border without a visa or other legal permission means you are here illegally. If making it a felony will help stem the flow, along with extending our border walls, then we have every right to make it so. Our country, our laws.

Perhaps we should demand that Mexico and Central America do more for their own economies, as in creating more job opportunities for their citizens at home, so they don't feel compelled to flee the crushing poverty. Less grandstanding by politicians would also be welcome. It's sad when you realize that the only thing keeping these economies afloat is the American dollars coming in from those who come here to work illegally.

The other alternative would simply to take over Mexico and Central America and make them an official part of the United States. No more Presidents south of the Rio Grande, just governors, senators and some congressmen. Somehow, though, I doubt the governments of Mexico and Central America would like that idea.

So, guys, do something about your own problems and stop expecting us to support you through illegal immigration!

Neal Boortz has suggested that Mexico is rather harsh on its own illegal immigrants, mostly from countries to the south, e.g., El Salvador, etc..

It is all about the money that Mexicans in the U.S. are sending home = less government spending in Mexico.

Mexico needs to become aware that future weakening of the U.S. will not help them. Mexico needs to get over any resentments of 19th and early 20th century issues between the two nations. Using Mexican immigrants in the U.S. to dismantle parts of the Southwestern U.S. will not help Mexico's situation at all. Mexico has plenty of natural resources and human resources that it needs to be more successful.

I am not enough of a historian/anthropologist/philosopher to explain the complexity of why Mexico is the way it is. It is not racism, I would rather Mexico stand more on its own as a strong, self-confident, cooperative neighbor.

Mexico is quite hypocritical in this matter. They shoot illegals on their southern border. They fire and deport people who aren't Mexicans. I guess they've learned well from the race and welfare pimps in the American Democrat party.
