Mexico Depends on US for Survival

I sure wish the Mexican state would fix its own economc problems. But they are too used to the mother's milk from America that they've been feeding on. Rather than deal with corruption and stimulating their home economy, conditions are more favorable for 15% of Mexico's workforce to migrate to El Norte for labor and cash.

That cash is then transfered via wire transfers back home to support their family and prop up the shaky Mexican economy. Mexicans in the U.S. send about $20 billion a year back to their homes in Mexico. This amount exceeds Mexico's income from all oil exports and is much higher than Mexico's revenue from tourism.No wonder the Mexican government publishes an invasion guide to their citizens with tips on how to successfully infiltrate Americas' borders and job market.
