I read in your paper about the crisis on our border with Mexico. It is clear Mexico looks the other way when immigrants cross its southern border and enter the United States. I lived in south Texas for 20 years and their security is a joke. They are the most corrupt in the world.

Why doesn’t the U.S. tell Mexico to secure its borders or we will cut off our aid to them and limit trade? It is a shame the fat cats in Washington blame everyone but won’t even bring up Mexico.

It is high time we bring Mexico into the solution and demand action.
