As I`ve reported before, several Mexicans have had the temerity to suggest that if the U.S. got control of its border, it could be a good thing for Mexico. (See here
The most recent such pronouncement came from Ernesto Anaya Silva, in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas.
Anaya is the regional president of COPARMEX, the prominent Mexican managers` organization.
Of course, Anaya thinks that building a wall to keep out illegal aliens will hurt the U.S. economy. However, he also said that the wall would help Mexico.
According to an article by Susana Nila
"The border wall that U.S. authorities intend to construct could constitute an economic and social development opportunity for Mexico, if it takes advantage of the labor force that couldn`t cross to the U.S., according to Ernesto Anaya Silva."
So what are we waiting for? Let`s get that wall built, and give Mexico that opportunity !
