|I’m just trying to figure out what they are actually protesting. Are they being mistreated in some way in LA?|
NPR brings to light a border dispute involving… the mexican military? Providing cover for a drug smuggling ring? I predict Bush will call the local law enforcement “vigilantes” and proclaim that the Mexican smuggling incursions into the US are to provide drugs that Americans aren’t willing to grow.

|That’s absolutely what will happen (at least the first part), and–as my grandmother used to say–“that just boils my blood.”|
Rothell told me about coyotes, or smugglers who bring in Mexicans and other illegals. NPR has been running an expose on illegal immigrants. Of course they call them “Undocumented” Workers. It is a five part series and has been eye opening. Mexico’s biggest export is labor. It is now considered a liability for an able bodied Mexican man to stay in his country to work when he can send money back home. Roughly 10% of the Mexican economy is supported by repatriated cash flow. Most of that comes from illegal immigrants.
