LuckyOne: In 2004, the NY Times said that the border is under assault and needs to be protected. By 2008, their stock was crashing and it looked like they would go under. Carlos Slim, a Mexican billionaire bought hundreds of millions of dollars of their stock. Now the Times wants Obama to double down on amnesty and more open borders. Why is this? Slim also owns 75% of Mexico's telecommunications infrastructure. Every time someone in the US calls home or wires money, Slim gets paid.
