    Is Mexico more afraid of a Trump Presidency than the Democrats?

    Since money sent back to Mexico from illegal immigrants from America in that nations Second largest source of capital, you bet they are afraid, so afraid that Trump's effigy get burned.

    With the economy not exactly humming along here in the U.S. (something not reported by the msm), the immigration issue might be taking care of itself.  There just aren't jobs available outside of the agriculture sector for a lot of Latin American immigrants. The flow has dropped (not the flow of drug running,  but those looking for work). Mexico has taken steps to deregulate its oil industry and other sectors, which may help. 
    That being said, security is still an issue and many people are rightly scared in the southwest, especially immigrants, who are preyed upon in their neighborhoods. 
    If Mexico could ever grow its middle class, we would not have this problem.  If you think we have an issue with the "1%," it's worse down there. Real class and culture issues throughout the country.
    I was a supporter of NAFTA, but I have to admit that it really has not improved the economic opportunities of the average Mexican citizen (which was promised).  We need to do something different.
    Are they afraid of a Trump Presidency?  Probably. They don't believe he will win and neither do I.  But they have so many social issues, I hope they concentrate on creating a better standard of living for their poorest citizens.
    The Dems would rather run against Cruz, that's a certainty.  They can paint him as "anti-woman" and racist, etc.  Might have a harder time doing that to Trump because he does have several female execs and his daughter helps as well.  I think Kasich is the guy they don't want to run against.  He can win Ohio.

      Ralph, you're right. And a lot of people are retiring to Mexico as well. Have not been there yet, would like to see their pyramids.

    There's another reason Mexico is afraid. You see many Mexican illegal immigrants, and they are overwhelmingly Indigenous or poor from the southern part of Mexico, not the white Spanish descendants who rule the country.
    Mexico has been able to use immigration to the US as a social relief valve to prevent a revolution against the rich elite. After all, 10% of Mexico's population lives in the US now - and barring a few people tired of being kidnapped for ransom, most of them were the bottom of society, among the poorest.
    Close the border, and they risk a major social upheaval.

      Excellent point, Tamara. Their "1%" use the U.S. to dump their poor because of the rigid social structure they seek to maintain.  Again, never reported.  Very sad.

      And Mexico's immigration law is far more than anything Trump has proposed, like immigrants can't join protests or hold any civil office. AND MEXICO HAS A WALL on its southern border.

      Since Mexico has a wall on its southern border to keep out Central Americans, it is rather hypocritical for them to say we shouldn't have one, too.

    Obviously the visit by Trump today turned many heads - including the Mexican citzenry - one's gotta wonder what the intent there was, right?
