We had a lot of fruit crops rot in the orchards here in the Pacific NW. The $50,000 field jobs didn't appear. And if they did, nobody could afford to buy the fruit any more.

Mexico does offer help to its citizens in the free education that is available to all. I know some who have teaching and medical degrees and haven't paid one peso in tuition fees. I've heard some say a degree won't make a difference if you stay in Mexico. I say "tu eres muy loco!".They believe we are all rich up here. That there is more opportunity in the U.S. That isn't necessarily so. Legal immigrants also send money to relatives.I remember seeing businesses offering services for sending items and money to Poland.

They are lazy....they have to blast their horns in front of their door to get them out of bed and to work!!! And they don't want to speak english so they don't HAVE to be held ACCOUNTABLE for what they do! And besides the handy tool of screwing American citizens over in other ways, owing to their refusal to speak english. A lot of them can speak english BUT WON'T!!!
