Why do we have an open border with a country that has a lower unemployment rate than we do?

And a rapidly falling birthrate as well. Average Mexican women now has 1.8 kids, compared to over 6 in the 1960s.

I’ve seen Irish folks online complaining about Africans and even Poles. Maybe about time Los frijoleros join Carlos Salinas in the Auld Sod. In 30 years, they’ll be intermarried and producing MexiPaddies like crazy, and will keep the Africans out.

Yes I am serious. It is higher for Mexican women who immigrate to the US , as those who come here tend to be from the rural poor (most of Mexico's population is now urbanized). However, the problem will take care of itself as 1. Mexico's birthrate is rapidly falling, as is the case with ANY urbanized society and 2. Second and Third generation Mexican Americans tend to have birthrates closer to the American median.

The truth is that birthrates are falling all over the world, with mostly only the Africans these days having high birthrates, a fact mitigated by the high rate of infant mortality in subsaharan Africa.

Well, I once lived in a heavily Colombian neighborhood in Miami. The women are one hell of an export, especially compared to the fat harpies that increasingly comprise our own population.

100 years from now, the third and fourth generation Mexican Americans will be protesting the Africans who will be pouring into the US.

Over 10% of the Mexican population lives in the US, more than 10 million people.

If 10% of the US population lived outside the US, we would have full employment also, especially if they were the poorest of the poor dumped on another country’s welfare state.

Not only does Mexico have full employment, it has the 11th largest economy (PPP) in the world.

Very few Latinos in this country have more than two!! Threw a wrench in the great forecasting of population growth.

Gee I wonder why illegals would prefer to be in a state with 12% unemployment while the rate is below 5% at home...

And the wierdo we just elected governor in CA wants to raise taxes.

"If this is true, why the hell are they all coming here looking for jobs?"

First, I don't believe the number - it reminds me of Cuba's 100% literacy rate. That being said, whatever their employment number is or isn't, what is unquestionable is that a Mexican job pays only a fraction of what a US minimum wage job pays. They're coming here because it's economically advantageous.

No, they count Mex illegals working in the US, therefore their figures look better than ours. Only thing is, as our unemployment gets worse, fewer US citizens can afford to stay at hotels, motels and flop houses, so their unemployment numbers about to go up.

Fifty years ago the Mexicans in Los Angeles county were “breeding” for the revolution when they expected to recover ownership of the southwest USA.

Congratulations ...At least you read the report. It’s a completely inflated figure, which includes their army navy and jailed inmates. It’s valueless, like Obama stats ...sounds like satire...except its not April 1st.

Irish kinship with Mexicans dates back to the San Patricios, when Irishmen left the US Army during the invasion of Mexico to help a Catholic people against a Protestant aggressor (their flag was a Mexican flag with a harp in the center instead of the eagle - they were hung or branded when captured). I have a problem with illegal aliens, not Mexicans. Many of them in the southwest had families living here before the Mayflower landed; us (relative) newcomers can’t complain about them...(even though we still do).
