Among the many factors contributing to illegal immigration through our southern border, economics is chief. Few are genuine refugees, either from political oppression or violence.
“Remittances are one of Mexico’s top sources of foreign income, outpacing oil exports, which totaled $18.5 billion between January and October, according to the most recent figures available at the Bank of Mexico. Manufacturing exports are the top source of foreign income for Mexico.”

$24.1 billion in 2016, $26.1 billion in 2017 and it may top $30 billion this year, 2018. One can readily understand why the Mexican government encourages illegal migration to our country.
The Mexican government genuinely cares for the general welfare of its citizens as does the U.S. government. Now. To this end, Mexico published a guide on how to illegally enter the United States of America and, if caught, how to exercise caution and to seek legal assistance.

With respect to remittances to Guatemala, on 17 February 2017, the International Organization for Migration reported, “…97.1 percent of people who send remittances to Guatemala live in the United States of America…In 2016, the annual remittances to Guatemala reached USD 7.27 billion…”
“The main causes why surveyed people would migrate during the next 12 months were to seek for employment (31 percent) or economic reasons (24.2 percent). Other motivations to migrate would be for family reunification (18.6 percent), because of discrimination based on their sexual identity (2.4 percent), insecurity (1.7 percent), problems with the gangs (“maras”) or threats (1.2 percent), and violence (0.5 percent).?
On 30 June 2014, after a meeting of VP Joe Biden with the presidents of Mexico and Guatemala, the Vice President stated in a news conference, “No new immigrant since 2011 is eligible for the earned citizenship provisions proposed in the comprehensive U.S. immigration reform pending before Congress. Right, wrong, or indifferent — those are the facts.
And putting children in the hands of smugglers and these thugs and drug traffickers is a reckless and dangerous undertaking for any parent to do.”
It is not the U.S. government that separates children from parents; it is the parents and their respective governments that aggravate illegal migration who are totally responsible.
But, a new day dawns as, first, President Trump makes good on his promise to build a wall between Mexico and our country from coast to coast. Second, the incoming Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador, aka AMLO, “is planning his own border police force to stop undocumented immigrants, drugs, and guns from crossing into the country from Central America”.

By no means should we dismiss the facts of Mexican and Central American societies which are rife with poverty, corruption, and criminal activity.
Socialist Democrats in this country frame an argument for open borders as a right to immigrate. Such is untrue for every country on the face of the earth, therefore this is a false premise.
Socialist Democrats promote the diversity movement which is a fascist tactic to divide us.
The downside of diversity – The Boston Globe | 5 August 2007
A Harvard political scientist finds that diversity hurts civic life. What happens when a liberal scholar unearths an inconvenient truth?
The false premise of the diversity movement: our differences make us stronger.
The reality of the diversity movement: the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. “The study, the largest ever on civic engagement in America, found that virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings.”
LULAC and radical leftist Democrats paint conservatives as haters. The opposite is true: We are the lovers; they are the haters who would abolish ICE if they retake control of Congress. Even Maxine Waters disagrees with her far-left fellow Democrats.
