Almost everybody believes that the U.S.A. needs immigration reform. I’d like to propose that we study immigration systems in other countries, to see what we can learn from them.Did you know Mexico has its own serious illegal alien problem? Illegal aliens from Guatemala and other Central American countries try to sneak into Mexico. These are people who look the same, talk the same Spanish with Indian dialect, and are culturally very similar. Does Mexico tolerate it? Hell no.
It's arrogant to assume that we Americans have all the answers, and that no other country can do anything better than we can.
Some of the biggest critics of our immigration policy are Mexicans. So let's examine Mexico’s immigration policy and see what we can learn from it.
We might even decide that Mexico has some approaches to the issue that we could copy. Surely they wouldn’t object to that.
