Home for the Holidays (Mexican Style)

The New York Times (Note: Subscription required - you can bypass this on has an interesting article about the annual mass exodus of Mexican nationals, including millions of illegal aliens, from the United States back to Mexico this time of year. The article points out the problems that US immigration officials will face at the end of the holiday, as the massive flow of people turns back to America, and the problems that the Mexicans can expect as they return to their homeland.

Of interest is the outflow of stolen TVs and washing machines from the US to Mexico this time of year, and the huge surge in drug traffic to fill the appetites of Americans wanting to celebrate too much for their own good. It's sad that Christmas has come to this.

Considering all the problems we have along our borders, the article is required reading.
