    The key is to actually invest the remittances. Right now, Mexicans are sending nearly $2 BILLION a month into the economy. But they are only helping members of their own family who simply wait for a check and then spend it.
    A few efforts to form clubs whereby Mexicans living in the USA band together and send larger sums back to the local town to pay for projects or invest in businesses. Those clubs are rare indeed.
    PEF is also a model for improving Mexico.
    But the drug culture and corrupt officials runs deep.
    That's why 36 million Mexicans want to come here, half of them willing to do so illegally.

    Sounds like there is a man on the inside,as it were.

    Senator Jones is one of the few truly genuine gentlemen politicians left. What a great man!
