Cause it's polarized. You see these incredible futuristic, rich and world class places with slums next to them. You have the third richest man in the world and 50 million poor people. This is Mexico, the country with the world's worst distribution of income.

Of the big economies, it is. Only Brazil surpases Mexico, but considering the per capita income of Mexico (higher than Brazil's per capita income) makes the mexican case even worse. FELIPE CALDERÓN!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!

Yeah Mexico is in fact the twelfth richest country in the world (u can check ir if u want) but the line between rich and poor people is way too big, so usually all the Mexicans that u see in the states are the poor ones, the indians, the farmers, etc. and they give a bad reputation to the country.

Hey!!!!, you say that all the mexicans that live in the United States give a bad reputation to Mexico, You shoul think before posting something like this on this forum, it`s not the "poor ones,indians and farmers"`s fault that they didn`t have the chance to go to school and have a nice job back in Mexico, for you information most of the anglo-americans that I know think of mexico`s bad "reputation" thanks to tha mexican rulers.

Provisions in NAFTA have created a dire situation for small peasant farmers mainly from Southern Mexico.

Bean and Corn inports from highly subsidized US Agribusiness (Cargril, ADM with access to cheap capital, technology, cheap labor- read Mexican farm workers, pesticides, bio engineering to name a few) have dropped the price of corn and beans which are the main staples in the Mexican Diet. This has created a collapse of subsistant labor intensive agriculture in southern Mexico.

These poor peasants just can not compete with US Agri-Business.

NAFTA needs to be negoiated to address these issues.

Unfortunatelly the idiotic US Congress or the monkey in the white house have no clue.

One thisng that you will hardly ever see in the US is edcutated middle class mexicans immigrating ( like you see from other latin countries ). There are plenty of jobs and opportunities for the well educated in Mexico. And the majority of the Mexican find the "American way of life" grotesque.

Mexico must address these inequalities. The US must repect human rights.

Why not create a EU plan to help less developed neighbors to help prevent migration. This would only create markest for US exports and services .

But no... it is not meant to be!

They prefer too burn $2trillion dollars invading countries in the name of democracy building up the US debt and smearing the US' good name.

WHY??????????? It is better to do the right thing!!!!!! so much easier.

What sort of 'human rights' is the US obligated to accept ? Is it a human right to immigrate illegally, find work illegally and then remit illegally gained income to one's home country ? Or are we suffering from a spirit of entitlement hear ? And is there any meaning in words like 'charity' anymore, or is everything a 'right' nowadays ?

If the US wasn't burning up all the money it spends everyday in Iraq, it could be very well used to boost Americans' way of life. There are parts of American cities and rural areas that would make you wonder why the US is called a first world country. And, so much has been spent in the US on using the police for homeland security that the crime rate has started to creep back up.

And, on top of all this, the money we are talking about is being financed by selling US Treasury Bonds to wealthy Americans, Japan, China and many other countries. In other words the government is spending much more money than it collects in taxes.

The last thing we need is the government spending more money to give folks a 'boost', whether Iraqi or otherwise.

I'd much rather look at pics of CBDs anyday than talk about politics.
