I'm thinking that there's a greater issue here. On one hand, folks in the US are up in arms about "illegal" Mexicans who, by and large, are doing grunt labor. And in many cases, remitting the fruits of that labor back home to their families for subsistence. Along comes trained, competent tradespeople from El Norte, who seek the lower cost of living South of the Border, but also wish to work for compensation. Maybe it's just me, but I see a total disconnect here. If we up North do not want to see illegals toiling at the most menial jobs we have, how is it that we should protest a Mexican government that objects to foreigners seeking to do work that can be done by its citizens? Just wondering.
