We should hire a slew of Mexicans to help build farms up here and... That's racist. Culturally, Mexico is an agricultural state. The US has been dumping DDT and burning farms that contain Cannabis or Coca. This also helps to destroy their economy, livlihood and pride. When a person lives on a farm all their life, they are not stupid, they know more about growing food and taking care of animals than you could dream of (unless you, too, lived on a farm your whole life). No one is lazy that has illegally crossed the US/Mexico border. They risk their life, and limb to get here. This does not mean it is right, just that they are in no way lazy. It takes a lot of activity to cross the border, and it is not usually a one day ordeal. Should we build a fence between our borders? We don't have the money. On top of it, with the borders closed, the drug trade would stop and our "war on drugs" would be over. The US does not want that, they would stop getting thr billions of annual dollars they get from our taxes. In short - Mexican immigration, legal or otherwise, is a thriving industry that just is. Perhaps you should go to Mexico (not Cancun, or other "travel destinations") and see if you could help them get their economy back up to par so they would prefer to stay there.
