Are you really serious? People from Mexico and Latin America come here for work, mainly. To make more money. Many send it back to their families.
You are really smarter than that to ask that question. I am dumbfounded you did.
Maybe they were asking why isn't Mexico as prosperous as the USA. Why don't they have the same job and earning opportunities as we do here in the states.
What is the difference?
It's simple economics dude.
Why doesn't the Mexican government care about changing that? That's a whole other thread.

Like I said, that's a subject for a whole other thread entirely.

To me, stories like this one and practically speaking, ALL the stories about illegals from Mexico fall under the umbrella of a single question.
The question isn't about Trump. It isn't about Obama. It isn't about farmers or welfare or racism or drugs.
The question is....
What the hell is wrong with Mexico?
I've posed this question before on this site..... but Mexico is not too different from the United States in raw ingredients. It's got a large land mass. It's got coast line and natural resources. It's got a population that are, in general, more similar than different.
So what the hell is wrong with Mexico? Why is everyone there so broke? Why is everyone trying to sneak into the nation to the North?
If the Mexican government, at the higher and hopefully more responsible levels, can't seem to reign in the problem brought about by the cartels.... then rather than b-tching and complaining about the U.S. deporting their citizens that break into the U.S. ..... then they should ask the U.S. for assistance in rooting out the cartels. To be candid... after decades of training "moderate-things" across oceans.... helping Mexico get into shape would be a relative snap.
