Where is Mexico on U.S Immigration Reform?

President Obama’s visit to Mexico came with immigration reform at the center stage in Washington. And with Mexican nationals making up more than half of all undocumented immigrants living in the U.S, where is Mexico in the discussion? María Hinojosa speaks with former Mexican Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan.

Mr. Sarukhan says many Mexicans ask for nothing more than to work in the US and then return to mexico to live with their families. Does he not understand economics? The US minimum wage is $7/hour while Mexico is $5/DAY. How is a US worker going to compete with someone who suddenly earns 10 times than back home? Mr. Sarukhan’s policies would be a windfall to big business, and death to the american middleclass. He would turn the US into mexico.
