Full story: National Journal

This word cloud comes from the results of the survey question: "Now, thinking about Mexico, what are three words that come to mind?"

The article and survey are 1000% correct. Drug, cartels, human trafficking, all coming to a neighborhood near you.The You-tube videos of be-headings in Mexico didn't do them any favors either.What a horrible place to be in or even think of being in.

Since Mexico insists on sending their human garbage here. We should build landfills and sewege plants there. Turn about is fair play. They would'nt notice the diffrence or smell anyway.

Corruption abounds in all sectors of Mexico's society. Bottomline, any country that views "rapto" as romantic is totally arse-backwards and we certainly do not need people with this mindset sneaking in leering our women and children. We have enough homegrown slime of our own, we don't need to add more to the mix.

They are all included in the conversation because the low lifes are coming from the most southern country's as well. I watched a program last week, where the railroads provide rides north through several country's. If you give a railroad worker $15 bucks, they'll let you jump in. Then In Mexico, long haul truckers pick up the rest and deliver them right to our border. My God.....It's unbelievable.

its big business too. i seen where they are using cartels to smuggle them showing their support for organized crime as well. then whine when they hold them until someone pays up,even the cartels know they cannot trust these folks.

Really

I am a American that lived for years in Sonoma and Napa Valley

I still have a ranch in Sonoma and Santa Rosa Ca is far more dangerous than most places in Mexico

Yes there are some dangerous places here but tell me Houston, DC or Detroit are not dangerous

Here in Jalisco we have never had a mass shooting in any school or movie theater

Here in the bay are over 500k people and we have had 5 murders this year

Can you show me one city in the USA with 500k people and only 5 murders???

Nope

Mexico routinely takes bus loads of prisoners and drives them to the border and tells them to cross and never return or they will get a life sentence

Mexico knows the bleeding heart liberals will feed, cloth, medicate and educate these criminals and it saves Mexico billions of dollars

Take your anti-liberal spew and shove it.

It is immigrants generally receiving social services, yet most of them are WORKING for low wages, and so the net economic effect is positive for the USA.

Are you suggesting we should not allow illegal immigrant children into the schools, should deny them healthcare, etc., because some Mexicans are criminals?

Interesting that all you gringos are in such abject denial bout the crimes the USA has committed against Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, etc.

Nobody gives a rat azz about the crimes that happened in the past. We're concerned about the low life illegal aliens and their anchor rats messing up a great country.

"It is immigrants generally receiving social services, yet most of them are WORKING for low wages, and so the net economic effect is positive for the USA."

No, it's good for all the businesses that you whine and b!tch about taking advantage of the illegal aliens and the countries south of our border. It makes it worse for the average American citizen for the vermin to be here.

The vast majority are wanted criminals from Mexico.......

Correct
We should lock the children up in jail with their parents then parents will think twice about bringing them to the USA

What does that have to do with the fact that moronic liberals want the Mexican criminals living in the USA???

Seems like most Mexicans view Mexico negatively also or they would be sneaking in to the U.S.
