  • Hidden Report: Mexico Remittances Total More Than Entire Mexican Oil Revenue

    02/10/2016 6:38:18 PM PST · by Helicondelta · 33 replies
    Remittances sent home by Mexicans working outside the country surpassed petroleum revenues in 2015 for the first time. There was a 4.75% increase in money sent from abroad, most of which comes from the U.S., to total US $24.8 billion last year, up from $23.6 billion in 2014, said the Bank of Mexico. An important factor in the increase in remittances is the jobs created by economic recovery in the U.S. Some 11 million Mexicans are believed to be living in the U.S. and many work in construction. Remittances, 97% of which are sent electronically, averaged $292 last year. We...

    As much as I love Cruz as a conservative, there really is a voter rebellion underway and it may be unstoppable. Despite all the denials, the simple truth is the voters really are fed-up and really are up in arms against the establishment. Trump's message is exactly what the voters are looking for: Build the wall, enforce the law, deport them all, slap a moratorium on Muslim immigration, bomb the hell out of ISIS, cut the taxes, cut the spending, cut the regulations, cut the government, cut the bad trade deals, cut the political correctness crap, bring back capital, bring...

    Over the weekend the former president of Mexico took a rather scoffing tone when he said that Mexico wasn’t going to pay one cent for Donald Trump’s “stupid wall.” This is a knock we’ve heard from plenty of The Donald’s critics back here at home as well, coming from Democrats and Republicans alike.

    Stan Eury turned an obscure bit of immigration law into a mammoth federal program -- and a lucrative business empire, importing hundreds of thousands of Mexican workers for legal American jobs. Except that some of the jobs weren't real jobs, and an untold number of those workers may never have returned to Mexico at all. In November 2009, seven men got off a bus in Monterrey, Mexico, and made their way through the crowded and chaotic downtown to the concrete box that housed the United States Consulate. Inside, the men told a consular officer that they had been invited to...

    The leader of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Thursday assailed the "very loud" voices in the Republican presidential race who advocate "walling off America," taking what appeared to be a swipe at Donald Trump. While Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue did not mention Trump by name, he denounced candidates who he said "are attacking whole groups of people based not on their conduct but on their ethnicity or religion." "This is morally wrong and politically stupid," Donohue said in his annual State of American business address. Donohoue later denied that his remark was aimed directly at Trump,...

    Mexican drug cartels continue to fascinate the minds of Americans who tend to idolize outlaw gunmen with fast cash, fancy cars, guns and women. However, few realize that Mexican drug cartels are as ruthless and sadistic as Middle Eastern terror groups like ISIS with whom they actually have many tactics in common. For most in America, the closest they have come to a drug cartel is the small-time drug peddler in the street corner, the glamorous TV shows, or the Mexican narco-ballads. However, taking a step back and looking at their entire structure, and how those drugs got from...

    Right to Rise, the "super PAC" supporting Jeb Bush, has released its third advertisement criticizing Senator Marco Rubio, this time attacking him over immigration. The ad is called "Vane" - no doubt a deliberate homophone. On Screen The ad opens on a picture-perfect scene of a rural barn, then zooms in on a weather vane on the roof, in the form of a smiling Mr. Rubio, one hand insouciantly in his pocket, the other pointing west - or is it east? As a swirling wind blows this way and that, Mr. Rubio reverses himself again and again. Over the faint...
