Thousands Protest Immigration Policies in New York City
Thousands of immigrants formed a line stretching more than a mile long Saturday as they marched across the Brooklyn Bridge, waving flags from more than a dozen countries as they demonstrated against possible immigration reform in Congress.
"We are your economy," said another.
"Ooooh, I'd eat that snake... the bird too!"
"We are your economy?" That's laughable. Unless he means that illegal aliens are Mexico's economy. What kind of pathetic country relies on it's citizens breaking the law and stealing from another countries prosperity?
The Banco de México (Mexico’s central bank) estimates that remittances from Mexicans living abroad will total US$17 billion in 2004, nearly 20 percent more than the most optimistic forecasts earlier this year that approximated US$14 billion.
Upon reaching this amount, money sent by fellow countrymen living abroad will become the main source of Mexico’s foreign exchange, over and above revenue from crude oil exports that is expected to be slightly more than US$16.665 billion in 2004, and far more than income from visiting international tourists who will spend US$10 billion.
What a pathetic country. I would be ashamed to fly Mexico's flag if I was one of their citizens.
