Great, does that mean illegal immigrants can also claim asylum or refugee status?

And I thought that it couldn't get any harder to kick them out of the country....

I'd say it will soon be a lot harder than you can possibly think:

Aztlan Rising

Watch the video in full before passing judgement on it.

Then consider how bad it is in mexico and if things get much worse
a mass exodus to the US is inevitable.

This is just one of many catastrophes that are looming at this time.

Good Luck to you all !

Protesters rally in Mexico City
Thousands of people in Mexico City have protested against what they say is the inadequate response by the government to growing economic problems in Mexico.
The protesters - most of them from rural areas - were angry at President Felipe Calderon's recent move to freeze the price of petrol but not diesel.
They said the costs of running farm machinery had become prohibitive.
The country's economy has also been hit by a fall in the amount of money sent home by Mexicans living abroad.
Remittances that Mexicans living abroad - mainly in the United States - have fallen for the first time since records began in 1995, the BBC's Stephen Gibbs in Mexico City says.
After oil, the money is the country's second largest source of foreign income, our correspondent says, although it represents less than 3% of Mexico's GDP.
