The single biggest problem that I’ve noticed here in Mexico, is this need, to be like the people of the U.S.. Mexico is a third world country, it’s wealthy, within it’s own standard, and I can attest to that from living as a missionary in Asia and other poorer countries. Myself, living in these, other, much poorer countries than Mexico, myself I do not consider Mexico a poor country.
The Bible speaks about being content wherever one is at in life, being content of course, can only come through a personal relationship with Jesus in one’s life, that is the true beginning of contentment. There are the trials and testing’s, that will come in life’s journey, some are long in enduring, going to the very marrow of one’s existence. This purging of oneself, allows the “spring of life” to gush forth. The Holy Spirit flowing, through a repentant heart and life, with the Lordship of “Jesus the Christ.” Being the “Lord” in one’s life.

N. Oetker… As One Reads Through The Pages Below, it will become evident, that those who venture to north Mexico, on their illegal way to the U.S. will have contact with million’s of middle class, successful Mexican citizens, who are succeeding in their quest, for a better life and life-style in "MEXICO."
According To NAFTA’s report below there are 2,808 international factories in Mexico, it will become very clear that these are specialized jobs, and that the locals, have invested in themselves, by attending local government initiated technical schools to help them in attaining the work-skills necessary to compete in the global workplace, which requires the production of consistent quality parts.
The question for discussion is not that there aren’t jobs in Mexico but, what is the real motivation for illegal immigration activity?
As with all things of Mexico, it will be the Mexicans that will need to step forward and address the truth’s of this issue also.

THE MANUFACTURING EXPORT INDUSTRY
In 1965 the Mexican Government Established the in-bond or maquiladora (INDUSTRIAL PARKS) program, a program that allows duty-free importation of raw materials, components and equipment needed for the assembly or manufacture of finished goods for subsequent export. The program originated from the need to industrialize northern Mexico and slowdown migration to the U.S. by creating jobs along the border.
There are 2,808 Maquiladora companies operating in Mexico with nearly 90% of them in the border zone. The maquiladora industry currently employs 1,181,284 people. In Ciudad (City) Juarez alone, the industry employs 231,000 people.
N. Oetker footnote this city Juarez, according to local news, currently is controlled mostly through fear and intimidation from drug cartels and corrupt officials. The newly elected administration in Mexico, has disarmed the local police in these border regions and have sent in the military…. the axiom holds true and that is, "if you want to find the problems, follow the money.”
NAFTA in Numbers
Since 1993, the year before NAFTA went into effect, the total volume of trade between the three NAFTA countries has expanded from $294 billion to $1.149 trillion in 2006.
Each Day NAFTA Members Conduct Nearly $2.1 billion in Trilateral Trade.

Mexico’s Exports Have Grown exponentially since NAFTAs inception and the country has been consolidating as a major exporter to the US. During 2007, Mexico exported $194 billion, nearly equalling the all-time high from 2006 of $198 billion, and a big leap over 1993 levels, the year prior to NAFTA implementation, when it exported $39 billion.
In 2007, Mexico’s Trade surplus with the United States reached $67.7 billion US dollars, the highest surplus ever.
Sales from Mexico to the United States have increased $59.4 billion between 2002 and 2007. Immediate access to the US is a primary advantage for companies producing products that require tight logistical time frames to re-enter the US, heavy products that have high transportation costs and where quality is more important than price.
