    All the oil in the world isn't worth annexing Mexico or taking over the Middle East.

    Would rather tell them to fuck off, we're full.

    Sheesh taking on millions of instant welfare cases with PR would be bad enough, can't even imagine putting 120M welfare cases on from annexing Mexico.

    And can you imagine having to pay them at least a Federal Minimum wage to fix your roof?

    Undocumented worker rights

    Q. Are undocumented workers protected by California labor laws?

    A. Yes. All California workers -- whether or not they are legally authorized to work in the United States -- are protected by state laws regulating wages and working conditions. All California workers have the right:

    • To Receive a minimum wage of $9.00 per hour and $10.00 per hour beginning January 1, 2016
    • To earn overtime pay -- with some exceptions -- after working more than eight hours per day or more than 40 hours in one week
    • To file wage claims with the state labor commissioner if they believe their employer has violated state wage laws
    • To file workplace safety and health complaints with Cal/OSHA, the state's workplace safety and health program
    • To work in an environment free from retaliation for exercising their rights.
    The California Department of Industrial Relations - which enforces the state's labor and workplace safety and health laws - will not question workers about their immigrant status. The department will:

    • Process all wage claims without regard to a worker's immigration status
    • Hold hearings to recover unpaid wages and represent workers without regard to the worker's immigration status
    • Investigate retaliation complaints and file court actions to collect back pay owed to any worker who was the victim of retaliation for having complained about wages or workplace safety and health, without regard to the worker's immigration status
    • Vigorously enforce the state's employment laws to protect all California workers.
    If you have questions, call the state labor commissioner's public information line or local office.

    If the Mexican economy went to shit and they tried to come here illegally, they would be picking the absolute worst time to do it.

    In a few days, that ship will have sailed.

    LOL, I like it.

    The war on drugs would take on a whole new meaning.

    Of course...we couldn't stop them from coming here...or make them go home.

    They'd be a gigantic voting block, that's for sure!

    I'd imagine whoever is planning to do it has done it the past couple of weeks or months. Mexico gets like 2.5% of its GDP from people in America sending back cash so there has to be a sizable portion of Mexican families who are going to pick one side of the border or the other.

    Yeah it will only increase refugees to the USA and make any "payment" for a wall that much more difficult if not ridiculous.

    That's more than Mexico makes on oil.

    Mexico Got More Money From Remittances Than from Oil Revenues in 2015

    Gas-price hike protests in Tijuana

    Gas prices went up more than 20 percent in Mexico on the first Monday of 2017 (January 2). Protests and highway blockades started the same day over what is being referred to as "El Gasolinazo."

    anic spread through social media and the next day the protests became bigger. Families started to stockpile gasoline in their homes, depleting gas stations. Citizens reportedly looted gas stations and stores, resulting in over 600 arrests and 5 deaths. There have been reports of policemen joining the ransacking.

    In Baja, protesters formed a blockade outside the Pemex fuel depot in Playas de Rosarito. It resulted in the closures of more than half of the gas stations in Tijuana. The ones that remained open had long lines, sometimes of more than 50 cars.

    Friday morning (January 6), at around 4:00 a.m., federal police arrived to remove the protesters and allow tanker trucks to resupply the gas stations. Police convoys accompanied the trucks. After nine hours of struggle, federal police left, allowing the protesters to again form a blockade. Gas shortages and protests are expected to continue throughout the week.


    Those who can are driving across the border to fuel up at U.S. stations.

    “Out of nowhere they told us to close everything because they were coming to saquear [loot],” a retail employee at Tijuana's Plaza de la Tecnología told me. “They kicked everyone out around 6:30 p.m., supposedly because a riot that started in Parque Teniente Guerrero was headed this way. There was a collective psychosis — we are not prepared for something like that....

    “I was going to call you to come record,” the employee told me. “But the guards started hitting a guy with a belt because he was recording. [Guards] always take advantage just to feel like a symbol of authority. It was only an alert and nothing happened, I guess because we closed everything on time.”

    espite reports of unrest on the street, Juan Manuel Gastélum, Tijuana’s new mayor, told reporters on January 6 that there hadn’t been any official reports of looting (LIAR!) in the city. He also told citizens to protest in a peaceful manner and not to resort to the looting activity that had been reported in other Mexican cities; he claimed the videos and images shared on social media were not recorded in Tijuana or had been exaggerated.

    Elektra, Walmart). Facebook and Whatsapp groups created to coordinate saqueos (lootings) are promptly taken down. For the first time in my five years living in Tijuana, I recommend people not visit, much less do a road trip to Mexico.

    “What would you do?” Enrique Peña Nieto, the president of Mexico, asked the people at a press conference on January 5 after explaining why prices were hiked. Mexico has subsidized gas prices for the past six years. The president asked for calm and strength from the citizens since there will be no turning back from the raised price.

    The peso also continues to drop. The morning after the gasolinazo, Mexico's currency went from averaging 20 pesos to a dollar to 21.50.

    UPDATE 1/8, 10 a.m.

    Journalists for Frontera and El Mexicano have reportedly been assaulted and illegally detained by federal police in Rosarito. A video has emerged showing a truck running a police blockade, injuring more than four officers who faced down the truck with handheld shields.

    Many gas stations remain closed. Transporting gasoline from the U.S. to Tijuana is illegal.

    As if this is Trumps fault. It's two weeks before he even takes office.

    Mexico is a 3rd world dump just like Venezuela. And it's entirely their own fault. If anything, the US has been ridiculously generous to them and all you get in return is the finger.
