This from a website called Wetback Wives...
"TO THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT - CLOSE THE BORDER SEND OUR MEN HOME TO US, EVEN IF YOU MUST DEPORT THEM (only treat them in a humane manner - please do not hurt them)
The work is in the United States that is why the men left.
Leaving millions of broken families in the villages now our men are running from the police, But now we have organized our village cottage industry around the traditional handcraft jewelry of our region of Mexico.
Our village of Tecalpulco was very successful in the 1980s when our parents were the creators of the abalone shell jewelry.
Ours is a beautiful place to live and since we have formed our womens artisans cooperative and begun to have some success our hope is that the Mexican men who have gone to the US return." (source)
There are also heartbreaking letters to the absentee husbands posted.
"Mexican officials are aware of the social and economic consequences to their towns and villages. But businesses and government officials on both sides of the border also acknowledge a sort of grand bargain -- the U.S. gets cheap labor, while Mexico has an outlet for its unemployed, who in turn send cash back home." (source)
I have the solution --better than the fence, better than closing the border and better than attempting to catch all the illegals that have infiltrated the country to date...
We make Mexico a "United States unincorporated territory with Commonwealth status" --the same a Puerto Rico. If they want the benefits the US has to offer...fine, but pay into it and we will share in their tourism and natural resources that they obviously have no ability to handle efficiently themselves.
There are also Mexican-Americans calling for immigration enforcement and joining with the Minutemen.
