    There are more new cars sold in the capital, which is D.F., that babies are born.

    Anybody that has been to any of Mexico's big cities knows Mexico is not a third world country.
    Then why is it that people desperate to make a living stream across our borders to pick fruit and make motel beds?

    You don't force the issue. You make an invitation and the reasons why it would be a good idea. It would be a charm offensive.

    I can see where that might work with the Mexicans, as a large percentage of them seem to want to come to the US anyway. Canadians? Why on Earth would the Canadians ever want to join with the USA?

    I call bull****. I live in kern county. In the Farming and AG community. Right now the lack of labor is not the problem. Its lack of water. Even if the farmers had water their crops would get out of the ground just fine, they would have to pay more to do it if there was a labor shortage. They cant get workers AT THIER price in a labor shortage. They want their crops picked then pay more. The only reason their crops would remain in the ground would be because the farmer let them stay there.

    I say if Mexican's want to come here and work then I say let em through
    seems now a days, American's would rather hold out for the fantasy jobs
    they aren't qualified for...while south american's are willing to start at
    the very bottom and work their way to the top
    I speak my mind. If it offends some people, well, there's not much I can do about that. But I'm going to be honest. I'm going to continue to speak my mind, and that's who I am.

    I live in Fresno County. We're practically neighbors.

    So, you don't buy the farmers' contention that they can't harvest the crops without illegal labor? I've argued that point before, and said the same thing you just did.

    We used to harvest our crops without illegal labor, but then, it wasn't quite so easy to sit back and not work at all at that time.

    Who cares if they join or not. Maybe they decide to join later if we succeed in having the rest of the western hemisphere join as states of the union. A united hemisphere might be something they desire later.

    Anything is possible, but some things are highly unlikely. I find that one highly unlikely to the extreme.
