'At the limit,' Mexico buckles under migrant surge to U.S.
The lack of opportunity in Mexico is not attractive, it is the opportunity in the US which attracts.
More after the page break.
The US wants Mexico to do more. The Donald wants to build a wall. The solution is to pressure Mexico, the Central American nations, and South American nations to reform their economies so they provide more opportunity for their own people. Here at the End of History we know what works, we need to pressure the laggard nations to engage.
The problem with this is our own progressives wish to follow the laggards path, reducing our opportunity, as President Obama has the past 7 years. There is no doubt following a more free market approach would have allowed the US to return to a much more dynamic economy. A more dynamic US economy, and more dynamic economies in the Americas would lessen the immigrant flood, and provide the economy necessary for the US to put the ones who come to work.
An election stalks, choose wisely.
