Couldn't 10-20 Million Hard-working individuals help Mexico?

While most of the immigration debate has so far been about what should we do with them and what are they entitled I hope that this thread will be about the potential good 10-30 million Hard Working Immigrants(Mostly Mexican) could bring to Mexico.

These illegal immigrants are back-breakingly hard workers and should be respected for the people they are.
Why can't Mexico find a public works project to put them to work at the same time building a better Mexico. Why can't Mexico do the same thing with these people that FDR did with Americans during the Great Depression?

My advice would be start with the Roads. If Mexico could merely build modern roads, without the built in potholes, that would increase trade and tourism drastically for Mexico.

I would like to keep this thread possitive and about what good the illegals in the US could do in their own countries, not just Mexico.

They could, but their Goverment encourages them not to, because their pesos have been under-valued currency than the dollar, and then there's the history and mythology elements to it that also affect the people their too. Plus, since most are poor or improvished, they just mostly figure do what the goverment thinks should be done, and do it.

Plus, they tend to have stronger beliefs in Native American or Latin(especially Mexicans)-American Prophecies, from people like Black Elk, etc. in their culture, as well as in Catholicism or many of the other world's main religions too, so they follow the goverment and The US gets them as "revenge"; not all are bad, just naive and misguided at some level, or just want to eventually leave and become american, the 3rd I like because they do TRY to become to REAL CITZENS at some point. President Chaez, at the beginning of this century is a prime example of this.

I DON'T hold anything against anyone's race, gender, etc.

Oh, but what you two don't remember is that Mexicans are here to take back the land they stole from the Indians before we came to supposedly steal it from the Indians.

there aren't enough jobs that can support 10 million workers in mexico

the pay is also worse than the HORRIBLE wages they get from the work they get here

it would actually make the unemployment rate sky-rocket.

we need to assist mexico and the rest of the latin world's economies, instead of exploiting them. then there will be jobs for the workers in their own nations.
