Re: “Mexican macro-economics

There are many subcontractors in this area who pay taxes, own homes and are actively contributing in many ways to their community. They have to submit competitive bids for their part of a construction project. I have seen big apartment projects in this area where there are an endless supply of mexican workers doing sheet rock, roofing, stonework and cement work on Saturdays and Sundays. These were not small projects. Some of these projects covered several city blocks and took more than a year to finish. The contractors who were doing this work beat out the other subs that were using long-standing members of this community. The undocumented workers who were probably using forged green cards do not pay for homes, hospital expenses and other things. It is a well known fact that a lot of their money goes back to Mexico. If local residents were used, all this money would go to keeping up property values, and otherwise spent in this community. The local subcontractors are unfairly and probably illegaly disadvantaged in their bidding by others who are using these undocumented workers. Think of all of the Mexican workers used in the repair of the Kitrina hurricane damage. Think of the outrageously high fees the contractors were paid, and the amount of this money that went back to Mexico. I think that these reports are skewed to conclude anything they want to conclude if they say the economic gain or loss is a wash.

Re: “Mexican macro-economics

What ever!! They say if illegal immigrants would just go home and we the great americans would get our jobs back. That is a bunch of bull sh!! Because half of the Americans don't even like to work or are not trying to work. If the Americans where working before the illegal immigrants got here there would not been no room for them here and illegals would not have tooken our jobs!! And the economy would not have started going down!!

Re: “Juarez's children: Drugs, death and fear

what a horrific story. What can be done? I think maybe until more can be done to stop the drug trade into the US then it will never stop. Drugs are big business and many wealthy Americaans are profiting from this and dont care about the Mexican casualties. The US should have the same searches for AMericans going INTO Mexico no Amrican should feed privileged. THere is so much that needs to be done like this article needs to be made more available. more people need to be made aware.

Re: “Juarez's children: Drugs, death and fear

I just spent the past weekend in Juarez. I came up from Chihauhau on a bus and stayed two nights at the Hotel Santa Fe. The hotel ground floor was sandbagged and they had federales with automatic weapons at the sandbags 24 hrs. a day. This
hotel is only two blocks from the bridge to El Paso. The city is also filled with army troops along with all the federales. Twenty nine people were reported killed that weekend. That was just the reported ones. I can tell you this, there were no Americans on the Mexican side of the border and haven't been in months. Shops are padlocked up and down Juarez Ave. due to lack of business. It's bleak to say the least.

Re: “Juarez's children: Drugs, death and fear

Good story that reflects the true victims of this endless war. What future lies ahead of these innocent? And yet there are people in the U.S. that treat these innocent as lowlifes and scum because they are undocumented and because they are Mexican. Heartless.

Re: “Asylum Denied

The U.S. is giving asylum to those who are escaping Cuba...............yet Mexico is worse. She's also a law student so she could contribute to if she was giving asylum.

Honestly, it sounds like the judges who won't grant aylums are in on the drug cartels. Check to see if their accounts are padded.

Re: “Asylum Denied

She's been locked up for a year..............why not apply for citizenship after all this time? By now she could have learned what she needed to take and pass the citizenship test. She's pretty smart so she could have figured this out by now. Why not her legal team too?

The war in Mexico is horrendous to say the least................would love to visit but with this war with the drug cartels going on...............things are only going to get worse.............that's probably where the U.S. military is going next...............we're pulling out of the Middle East slowly but surely...............just watch.

Re: “Seized: Inside the brutal world of America's kidnapping capital

Not to worry. Kris Kobach will save us all. He'll keep those illegals from voting using the identities of dead people and creating false papers so good they'll fool county registrars of voters without possibly attracting any attention to themselves. And then they'll elect Tom Holland governor and stop Christians from holding services and rape our daughters and they'll reverse the Louisiana purchase and the Mexicans will sell the Midwest back to the French.

And we all know about the French!!!
