    Not sure that Mexico should be so proud of what has happened here. They are losing their brightest and most intelligent citizens.

    “They are losing their brightest and most intelligent citizens.” Sarcasm much.

    I wonder if Mexico would be willing to put the rules their own problem with illegal immigrants.

    I don't think they're losing their all their brightest but maybe many of the hard working ones and gutsy ones. But having livd in Mexico for a few years, I think many of their brightest would jump at the chance to liv and work in the US if they could easily do so lawfully.

    “Those who will benefit will be migrants of Mexican origin who have been living in the United States for years ... This is an act of justice which recognizes the great contribution of millions of Mexicans to the development of our neighbor.”

    If Mexico wasn't such a shithole all these “undocumented” (illegal) people wouldn't have to risk their life walking across deserts to get out of Mexico.

    Justice and Mexico just don't go together too well.

    I have a question President Nieto, why should we treat illegal immigrants in our country any differently than you do in yours?
