Why doesn't Mexico dig into that $18 -$23 BILLION a year in remittances that Mexicans in the USA (legally and illegally) have been sending out of this country, into Mexico for the past decades?

I'm sure a few BILLION would buy some blankets and tortillas for Mexican illegal aliens who have been returned to Mexico.

What about all the money those illegal aliens sent back to Mexico while they were all up here "working"? Where is it?
Or were they all on WELFARE? and in PRISON? doing jobs and committing crimes no American will do?

Jails and prison is exactly where some came from, the Mexican government "encourages" them to head north.
Gotta throw the trash somewhere.

And there are enough bleeding heart liberals who will donate as well as opposed to helping our own citizens losing jobs, having to give up kids (Nebraska) of all ages trying to get them a better life, etc...

Does anyone know what Mexico uses our millions in foreign aid on every year? Apparently not on the intended pursose.

Some of it is "supposedly" to be used to fight the drug cartels. What do they fight them with? If it's the Mexican army,what a joke. The Mexican army is in bed with the drug cartels. Mexico is not going to give up a big part of their economy. I assume the money goes to the rich elite fatcats. I.E. corrupt government officials. I think the United States should be asking for donations for taking care of these illegals.

Exactly and let's not forget the huge amount recently approved by Congress to help Mexico with the drug cartels. Shouldn't we just "adopt" Mexico, we're paying enough support and they're still not happy.

For Mexico? What do you think. But that's what we get for being in a global economy but being too expensive to be competitive. Retirees leaving, businesses leaving, even the illegals in some cases, etc.

If you mean annex them, I agree. A sh*tload of resources and take on , what, an additional 100 million populous for the trouble?

Face facts, North America is huge and it's way out of proportion in its size to the number of people living here. Take Indonesia for example. A small branch of island compared to the NA continent and they have a population of 234,693,997 as of July 2007.

Most of the trouble we have stems from greed, waste and not enough redistribution of capital.

Well I can see benefit to both countries with two of the three things you point out. The businesses leaving is bad with the exception of agra-biz, happy to see them go.

Clearly you couldn't tell I was joking. I have no desire to adopt Mexico today, tomorrow or forever!

I believe the United States has enough troubles with the commonwealths we have already. We still need to pass the hat around for donations. I'm sure Mexico will be the first to donate. LOL

Hezbollah Gaining Strength in Latin America

The Iranian-backed terrorist organization Hezbollah is expanding its influence in Latin America with the aid of Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela, according to testimony before the Committee on Homeland Security.

At a July 7 committee meeting, Roger Noriega — former American ambassador to the Organization of American States — said Hezbollah has been establishing alliances with Mexican and other drug cartels.

Noriega told the committee that the Venezuelan government is encouraging Hezbollah activities in several Latin American nations. A key operative in the Hezbollah network, he pointed out, is the second highest ranked diplomat in the Venezuelan embassy in Syria, Ghazi Nassereddine.

Nassereddine, who was born in Lebanon, reportedly manages a network that raises and launders money and trains operatives to expand Hezbollah’s influence in Venezuela and other Latin American countries.

Noriega also noted that an Iranian overseer of Hezbollah is Mohsen Rabbani, who is wanted by Argentinian prosecutors for his role in the 1992 and 1994 terrorist attacks against the Israeli embassy and the Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires.

“Noriega’s main point seems to be that the presence of Hezbollah in the region has metastasized,” Luis Fleischman observed in The Americas Report, a project of the Center for Security Policy.

“As a result of the support Venezuela, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Bolivia and others are giving to the terrorist organization, a more active role for Hezbollah should be expected in the future.”

Also appearing before the committee was Douglas Farah, senior fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center. He said Hezbollah is helping to build tunnels used by drug smugglers along the U.S.-Mexican border.

These tunnels could be used to smuggle terrorists and weapons of mass destruction into the United States, he warned.

Ilan Berman, vice president of the American Foreign Policy Council, told the committee that Hezbollah has established terrorist training camps in Venezuela and is setting up a camp in Mexico to illegally infiltrate operatives into the U.S.

According to Berman, Hezbollah already has a presence in 15 American cities.

Berman said:“Over the past decade, Hezbollah’s regional activities have shown a clear pattern of targeting U.S. interests and assets throughout Latin America.”
