Another background post. I am trying to keep this short and as simple as I can.
I read that Mexico produces more cars than any North American (USA ?) country. GM, Chrysler and Ford have been there since around the 30's later came VW. They also export electronics, trucks and machinery.
Mexico also holds a huge amount of American debt. Not sure how that works but a friend of mine was talking about this. Way over my head. I really do not understand this.
Mexico has always been the land of the very rich and the very poor. Now it has established a very large upper middle class when our middle class is all but disappearing.
So what the heck went wrong with Mexico.
It is because Mexico is one of the most arrogant corrupt countries in the world. It makes Russia and China look like 3rd grade bullies. It was hugely corrupt country before the drug cartels took over. But the ground work is there.
The reality is much of the poor stay poor and Mexico, and the Catholic Church (my religion) does nothing to help, birth control is non-existence. The way they care for the poor is to point them towards the US and say go.
The poor have limited health care beyond the clinics and educations stops when your are 15 years old. I will go into this in more depth when I write my posts about health and education.
Mexico wants as many of the poor to leave but be sure to send money back.
It is an huge industry.
From the making of shoes with maps on the insoles to carpet slipper produced to cover their shoes so when the illegally cross over the border so they won't leave foot prints. There even is/used to be a class held in a town on the west coast, who held a class in their city hall, not how to apply for a visa but how to sign up for all the free services you get across the border to the U.S.
Illegals is an export industry.
There is a now civilian group in Arizona that is patrolling the border. On Monday news they showed a tape from cameras they had set up along known trails. You see several groups of illegals nightly, from 50 to 100 at a time crossing into Arizona. Along with these illegal are drugs. 60 % of all the drugs in America come through Arizona.
Next post illegals
I appreciate the comments from yesterday.
I will answer your comment like I usually do so if you have any questions I will try to do my best. But remember this is from what I see and read in the news.
Much of my information on Mexico and illegals comes from my friend who is Hispanic.
Much of his wife's family still lives in Mexico but my friends grandfather and grandmother were both legal citizens of America.
