Local leaders are expected to gather outside the federal courthouse to rally for immigration rights.
Michael: Mexico needs tourism as it is, or was, major part of their GDP. But since drug cartels start killing people, and visitors especially from US, the tourism is down, way down. Mexico refuse to deal with drug cartel. How can few drug cartels win the battles against national army? It is just inconceivable. Can you imagine back in 1930 during Al Capone and Lucky Luciano running amok and the federal government don't know how to bring peace to the society? How to you stop illegals from crossing the border? Well the answer is why do they illegally cross the border. Because (1) Mexico became a wasteland, no opportunity, high crime, and corruption is rampant even at the local level; (2) US offers social programs even to non-citizens. Would you roam in arid land and be preyed by lions, or would you rather graze in fertile land? Wall will not stop illegals. It is only a perception that our borders will be secured. It will not stop underground tunnels. Again how do you stop illegals from crossing the border? Start resuscitating Mexico economy and make it a safer place to live. Stop providing social programs to non-citizens.
