house Bill H.R. 133

Should the U.S. & Mexico Partner on Economic Initiatives?

Argument in favor

America’s economic relationship with Mexico is longstanding, and needs to be reaffirmed. Bolstering both countries’ academic institutions, entrepreneurs, infrastructure, and medical training will benefit both nations.

For sure, and Canada too. Being friendly with our neighbors is good sense. Despite what some ignorant people think, the money flows both ways at the border. More trade is good!

Absolutely! Strengthening our economic ties with Mexico will only help improve our relationship with our southern neighbor. We need to encourage a lot more cooperation and diplomacy throughout the world, but especially with our close neighbors.

Argument opposed

There are already many forms of economic and academic exchange between the U.S. and Mexico, making this bill unnecessary. Other aspects of the U.S.-Mexico relationship, like border security, need more attention.

Not until US born students are given the same access to higher education funding. We have a nation of under employed wage slaves who should receive priority access, and this bill would send American students to the back of the line. No, a grant for 1000 documented Latino students 1st would be a compromise.

Stop wasting our tax dollars. Mexico is not interested in doing anything to help us. Look at the caravans they allow to come through their country to storm our border. Cut off all foreign aid.

I would not trust that the standard of education in Mexico would remain as high as the United States long term. We have more important issues to focus on with Mexico such as border security.

    Seeing that they are one of our largest trading partners, it seems logical to talk with them about strengthening our economic ties.

    No wall, no wall, no wall. Trade? Of course. Without exception, all organizations are powered by profit. College tuition, charitable donations and taxes supporting the military were ALL profits made elsewhere.

    Partner on getting the hell out of the way of economic enterprise. There is literally nothing that government can do to help in the long run. At best a government can be less dead weight in the present, but only at the expense of being a greater dead weight in the future.

    This will only work with a person in office that doesn’t blatantly and openly show his disdain and contempt for Mexico’s people.

    Given the dangerous and ego driven agenda of “45” we need to create alternative paths to cooperative and mutually beneficial programs with Mexico and other countries he continues to insult while destroying our global relationships.

    We should end all import/export taxes and tariffs. As far as economic growth via government spending, that's a contradiction in terms.

    Vote yes! By helping both our economies, we could better the lives of both Americans and Mexicans, undercut cartel operations, and hopefully alleviate some of the reasons that cause people to made the decision to risk their lives to immigrate.
