Bye-bye, Mexico!

You thought we had emigration problems before? You ain't seen nothin' yet!

Mexico is one of two countries that "bear consideration for a rapid and sudden collapse," according to a report by the U.S. Joint Forces Command on worldwide security threats.
If Mexico does indeed collapse, we'll be flooded with a wave of illegal immigrants that makes the current problem seem minuscule by comparison. And if (when?) it happens, we'll rue our utter lack of any kind of sane emigration policy. Our nightmare will be self-inflicted, and we'll deserve all of the consequences that befall us. We've had chance after chance to halt the mass migration from the South, but we've kowtowed to special interests instead.

Was it worth it for cheaper fruits and vegetables for a short 30 year run?

Honestly, the crooks in Washington can't see 5 minutes past the next election, and they don't give two hoots about the future of this nation. If they did, they wouldn't spend their time discussing meaningless hearings on the crimes of King George the Dim, or trying to bail out their rich and connected friends by dumping soon-to-be-worthless bales of money in their laps. Their actions speak louder than words. They're more interested in looting the Treasury and playing government than in protecting the interests of their country and its citizens.

It's a good thing I speak semi-fluent Spanish. I have a feeling I'm going to need it.
