I doubt many people in this Forum will have enough patience to look past their own prejudice or hate, but the truth of the matter is, Mexico needs us
and we need Mexico.
It is not a one way street, but a two way street.
Do you honestly think the US Government has neglected to look at the lack of border enforcement on either the Canadian or Mexican borders?
The fact of the matter is Mexicans are fantastic workers who are the EPITOME of capitalism at its best, but most of all THEY ARE GOOD FRIENDS AND GOOD
I am a European American, but more than anything, I recognize that this nation was built on immigration, WE ARE A NATION OF IMMIGRANTS, nearly 99% of
us! The 3 million Native Americans who still survive are the only people who can accurately lay a claim to this land we call the USA.
Building a wall is stupid, and here is why.
1.) Instead of paying for this huge project and wasting money on a wall, we should give that money to Mexican and US agents for integrating our
security systems and data centers to help protect Mexican borders, which ultimately secures our borders, besides, Mexico's border is much, much
smaller and is easier to monitor. If I were president, I would build that wall in Panama, right at the border with Columbia.
2.) The increases we see in our economy, due to increases in the need for housing, cars, etc.. Mexicans buy these items.. ahem.. Do you really think
all of them are dirt poor? NO, THEY SAVE AND BUY NICE THINGS TOO!
3.) Anyone remember the Statue of Liberty? She says "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free'? Lets HONOR That!
4.) Lets not turn ourselves into a bunch of Neo-Hitlerites with this stupid superiority complex.
5.) On the flip side, if you haven't been to Mexico, you should, its a fantastic place to travel, and a very affordable place to retire, which is
what many Americans do.
***My personal apology to any Mexicans or Mexican Americans reading this. Hate is blind, and instead of seeing you as an ally, many reactionary
Americans see you as an enemy, forgive their shortsightedness. They are brainwashed and don't realize how many Mexican Americans are serving in the
United States Armed Forces to protect America.
