Where's the help and non profits for Mexico's kids?! That country has the second highest child mortality rate and its the worlds second most violent country. But you never hear squat about donating to help those kids.
Donate to help Africa's and Middle Easts kids, sure I get it.. But Mexico's kids are just fine? Being number 2 on the world equivalent of hell for a child is no big deal? I hope someone isolates what's going on and steps in soon to help. No excuses. Africa is actually getting better over the last 10 years and they live in a sandbox with little vegetation. Food actually grows out of the ground in Mexico and Mexico is attached to the United States.
It would make a solid new non profit. Instead of spending money building a wall lets treat Mexico like one big American non profit. They are still a sovereign nation. But they are a big tax cut for Americans that donate to help Mexicos children and the environment they live in. This would help America if Mexico was as successful as Canada.
It starts with the kids.

Why is it that people don't want us to be the world's police, but they sure want us to be the world's saviour? Mexicans living in the U.S. send around $26 billion back to Mexico each year. How much more do you want?
We have plenty of kids here with no home and not enough food or clothes. I feel for the kids in Mexico, but they have their own govt to look after them.
America first for a change.

I've had it with us giving money to almost every country all over the world. It's ridiculous. We don't need to be paying million upon millions of dollars out all over the globe.
I say we pull the military and our finances home and take care of our own.
I'd love to see us focus on our own, before trying to clean up the rest of the world.
Model citizens, model country.. THAN we could preach to the rest of the world.
