well i really dont think this has been a great idea because not all the people has bad reputation and i wouldnt be talking bad about a country that i dont even know, and i would use some respect to other as well as im using it to you all!
now there are smarter minds in mexico and i dont like this idea! drug dealers dont have anything with trying to go to college in a external country!
thats my ponit of view!

i just got back from a mission trip to Tijuana and i was not affraid of the danger. thats all media hype. the people of mexico are very proud of their country and heritage. instead of saying to heck with them why dont you instead help the people of mexico. only if your involved with the drug cartels then you might be in danger.
