Make Mexico Rich

Jonah Goldberg on Mexico on National Review Online
You want to solve the illegal-immigration problem? Well, here's the answer: Make Mexico rich.

For all the talk about coming up with "comprehensive" immigration reform, the root causes of the supply are left out of the debate about immigrant supply and demand. If we're going to be "comprehensive," why not tie a fixed but significant level of legal Mexican immigration to greater free-market and anti-corruption reforms at home. Mexico's government feels increasingly free to lecture us about our domestic and economic priorities; it seems only fitting for us to take a more active interest in theirs as well.

One thought on “Make Mexico Rich”

  1. Good idea. Too bad, the Mexican govt. is irredeemably corrupt, and the word reform along with Mexican govt. is an oxymoron. The real problem traces back to 1848 when the nakedly white supremacist U.S. took half their territory and created a de facto apartheid, which continues to this day despite white supremacy being kaput. It’s time the Congress invited the Mexican people to dissolve their corrupt govt. and join the U.S. as 10+ new states sans racism.
