Mexico Still Treats Its People Like an Export
Victor Davis Hanson, National Review
People should be a nation’s greatest resource. Fairly or not, Mexico has long been seen to view its own citizens in rather cynical terms as a valuable export commodity, akin to oil and food. When they are young and healthy, Mexican expatriates are expected to scrimp, save, and support their poorer relatives back in Mexico. When these Mexican expats are ill and aged, then the U.S should pick up the tab for their care.
