Mexico's Social Welfare System Threatened from US Deportation Rate

Drop in remittances from Mexicans living in the United States threatens Mexico's social welfare in some areas
El Universal (Mexico City) 11/1/08
[The increasing return of its migrants from the US is beginning to catch Mexico's media attention.]
- According to the Mexican National Institute of Migration, between the beginning of 2006 and August, 2008, some 1.5 million of their countrymen were deported from the US.
Contributing to this trend, the total for 2008 could reach 600,000. In addition to these numbers, many are returning because of the financial and employment situation in the US. Those remaining are sending less money home. Mexico's social welfare is threatened by the drop in remittances received in economically marginal areas according to elected officials who call for a "rescue fund" of 1.8 billion pesos to be included in the 2009 budget.
The decrease in income from their US migrants "can convulse half the country," warned one of the representatives. Another pointed out that the recovery program would provide support for those who remain in the US where whatever they might have there would be more than what they would find in their home communities. The state and federal governments are not coordinated to face the wave of migrants remaining unemployed in the US and there is no plan in place, according to the Mexican Senate's head of the revenue commission. "The situation is worrisome because, at the moment, we haven't established an emergency program regarding people who are returning," he stated.

Under Who Cares...Mexico Social Welfare System Collapsing With Deportations
Under who cares...seems that Mexico's Senate is getting worried that their Social Welfare system is collapsing...why it is collapsing? Between deportations and a shrinking job market for illegal aliens here in America it seems that remittances from illegal aliens in America are rapidly shrinking. Now I am curious here...am I the only one that finds it disturbing that Mexico factors into their Social Safety Net for their most unfortunate citizens remittances from their illegal aliens here in America? President Calderon really needs to get a V-8, and Mexico needs to learn that America is not their FEDERAL WELFARE PROGRAM. We need more deportations, and Calderon needs to take care of his own citizens, rather than using America as his nation's dumping ground. Help put and American back to work...deport and illegal alien today.
If you suspect illegal aliens are living in a home near you, send us their address...we also accept the names of companies hiring illegal aliens. It's time to drop a dime on illegal aliens, and those that hire them.
