However, I believe it was printed simply to keep from having more and more illegals die each year from the risks they take in coming. I see nothing wrong with letting people know of the dangers present in making such a decision and advising them on what NOT to do (which could certainly lead to death)...in fact, one page states that "coyotes" (people, often U.S. citizens who know the land, who are payed to smuggle in immigrants) should not be trusted, because they may trick you into bringing drugs into the country (and personally, I feel coyotes are much worse than illegal immigrants).
Finally, like I've always said, you can't place TOO much blame on someone for trying to find work in another country if none is available at home. You CAN, however, place much blame on the Mexican government for doing little, if anything, to improve their own economic situation.
Hah...ok, I'm done, I know I'm getting the flame, but be gentle. :)

1.19 million illegals were caught trying to enter the country last year, and less than 150 died from all causes...mostly car wrecks when their guides tried to outrun La Migra. That is statistically insignificant and most definitely is not the reason the pamphlet was published. Please don't delude yourself into thinking that the pamphlet is in any way humanitarian in nature.

They don't trick anyone into bringing drugs over, they pay them. How the coyotes are bad is this: they'll take your 2 grand to get you 2 miles across the border and tell you to walk north for a day and a half and you'll be in Phoenix. Then abandon you. 200 miles south of Phoenix.

There's work available south of the border when Mexicans take the knowledge they gain working in the US back home and start their own businesses. That isn't happening often enough, but it is happening.
Thinking, knowledgable people know that this pamphlet is all about promoting illegal immigration. It's only the protestations of the Mexican Foreign Minister and our Open Border supporting press that keep anyone from seeing the truth.
There. That wasn't too bad a flame, was it?
A booklet to fix a "broken economy"?
Here's your "booklet". Find all the crooked cops and politicians, take them out and shoot them.
It's actually doing the opposite --- just to get millions more to leave. That loving caring government (cough cough) just raised minimum wage in Mexico to the equivalent of $4.15 a day --- not too long ago it was the equivalent of $4.50 a day --- so it's clear they're keeping things very bad for the majority.
I also notice that government has not provided any comic books to the women and girls of Ciudad Juarez who just keep getting murder --- over 400 murdered and raped --- but there is no effort from that government for them.
