…Mexico’s attitude is that people from other countries, including Mexico, should have the right to flow into the U.S. & that U.S. taxpayers should be responsible for the tremendous costs associated w/this illegal migration. Mexico is wrong and I will soon be giving a response!

Remittances from the United States to Mexico totaled nearly $32 billion last year.
Exporting social problems in return for tens of billions of dollars and political influence in another country is an impressive bit of statesmanship. Too bad the US doesn’t have someone able to artfully pull off a masterful kind of deal like the one Mexico has worked out!
