    And while he's there, he can discuss the findings of a new study that shows 80% of all border drug busts involve at least one American citizen, but that the reporting about the busts skews greatly towards reporting about how many Mexicans were caught whle downplaying how many Americans were involved in violating our border. Then, once they've firmly established that reality, they can discuss REAL border solutions instead of bandaid nonsense about fences designed to distract from the FACT that Mexican drug cartels are only able to do what they do because Americans are helping them (similar to the Americans hiring illegals to avoid minimum wage and other employment laws).

    He's gotta make sure that the millions that the FDA's EBT/SNAP education program for Mexican 'citizens' is in place and in full swing. Legislators are already paving the way for ObamaCare to accommodate Mexican 'citizens' that are preparing to make permanent residence in the US. Obama = spending your future away like a BOSS!

    I wonder how many MEXICANS are actual immigrants from AMERICA? Yeah! I said it right. I believe the big boat came to America and from there a decision was made. My family came from Germany and settled in U.S.A. Where did your Great-Great-Great immigrants come from and what soil did they step onto, was it U.S.A. first ? IF so... you might just be an AMERICAN living and even born in Mexico. Now what does that mean for Mexicans who are feeling the spiritual connection and risking all to be in U.S.A. and then you read in the NEWS how spoiled elected officials are wishing to punish those whose only crime is wanting to sustain and partake of what they believe is the greatest Country to call home, for what for doing what our KINFOLK sacrificed so we can take for GRANTED what Liberties we celebrate? Just something to consider. One Community Can Change A Nation

    Maybe while he is there he can ask why Mexico wants to send it's polluting trucks all over our country while we can't go there. Why Mexico feels we need to honor NAFTA while they haven't brought their system up to ours. They feel they should get a free pass and come here we can't go there because we can't even use their fuel because it will wreck our engines!
