    Play it out...

    "Because they want a better life... "

    But why can't they get a better life in their country? Is it because they live in an area like the Sudan which is a barren desert wasteland or a frozen tundra like Siberia?

    "No, Mexico has perfect weather and landscape for every type of industry".

    Is it because they're landlocked in a difficulty to travel mountainous country like Bolivia without access to ports?

    "No, in addition to their perfect weather, they have huge coastlines on two oceans for easy access to commerce, tourism... anything you need"

    Is it because they're so far removed from consumer markets for their goods, like New Zealand?

    "No, they're right next door literally to the largest consumer market in the world"

    Is because they have no natural resources to export?

    "No, they have vast, vast natural resources, including an enormous supply of oil that rivals the Middle East"

    Is it because no one gives them financial assistance?

    "No, decade after decade, century after century, they've received trillions in foreign aid which continues today".

    So why then...

    Why can't these "hard working, family-oriented" people ever get their shit together?

    I think the short answer is ineffective, corrupt government. Corruption is deeply embedded culturally and remains pervasive at all levels of society. They have powerful monopolists, party bosses, ineffective courts, rigid labor markets, and the government restricts foreign investment in several sectors of the economy.

    The question should be: Why do the majority come here and overtax the system and not put anything back into the system that supports them?

    You're on the right track but keep going...

    Why are they corrupt? Why are they ineffective?

    Native americans are not indigenous. They came from Eurasia via a land bridge in like 10,000 B.C. Why did those bastards come here?

    my ancestors came over a hundred twenty years ago legally. focus on the word legally and in addition they don't come here anymore except in rare exceptions certainly not illegally

    Beaners are like cockroaches. They are tough enough to survive any environment.
