Illegal Immigrants: In Search of the Mexican Dream
The real solution in solving America’s Illegal Immigration problem is not going to be found in building fences, high tech ID’s, the Various Shamnesty provisions or in worker programs. The real solution is not even America’s to solve, but one for the Mexican government to accomplish. When the Mexican economy can offer its citizens the oppertunity to earn a decent wage and provide a better future for their children, we won’t have thousands attempting to cross deserts to work in a foreign country for a paltry wage. Mexico is never going to offer that kind of opportunity however, as long as the rampant corruption at all levels of Mexican politics is present, and as long as they maintain the failed socialist economic policies that given us this problem to begin with.
Bridget Johnson has an excellent article on Pajama’s Media that I highly recommend. Below is an excerpt from that article.
Between treating Central American migrants like dirt and then blaming the U.S. for violating illegal immigrants rights, Mexico’s leaders need to summon enough introspection to realize what their country can be, and then summon enough courage to take the painful steps needed to get there.
