Yet Mexico counts on these expatriate poor to send back well over $20 billion in annual remittances — currently the third-largest source of Mexican foreign exchange.
Multibillion-dollar annual remittances from America fill a void that the Mexican government has created by not extending the sort of housing, education or welfare help to its own citizens that America provides to foreign residents.
In truth, many thousands of Mexicans flee northward not necessarily because there are no jobs, or because they are starving at home. America offers them far more upward mobility and social justice than does their own homeland. And for all the immigration rhetoric about race and class, millions of Mexicans vote with their feet to enjoy the far greater cultural tolerance found in the U.S.

If we had a good man at the top, the Mexicans would trade us their oil (expropriated from American oilcos) discounted to $20/barrel in exchange for us handling their social problems. Every time an illegal alien sneaks in, we are in effect, robbed twice.
BTW, according to our law, the offspring of illegal aliens are NOT, that's not, citizens.
