In Mexico the family is paramount. It is very difficult for them to leave their families to cross the border. Yet many do in order to feed their families.
The USA spends billions in fences
border patrol agents
to keep them out.
Once they arrive, billions are spent providing them with health care, medicine, education, prisons, etc.
A huge amount of money is spent to keep them out, and provide for them when they have arrived.
What if this money was spent to raise the quality of life in Mexico? Would they leave if they were content? After all there is no huge expenditures on the border to the North.
Isn’t this obvious, or am I missing something?
