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.

    Opposition to initiatives like this is deeply confusing to me. People want to stop Mexicans from pouring into the United States? Here's a great plan: help make life better for people in Mexico. They're one of our closest economic partners on the planet already, so this is just common-sense legislation. Further, the bill isn't hashed out yet, so objections about how it puts Americans to the back of the line make very little sense. Instead of building a wall, it makes a lot more sense to help Central American countries be happier and more successful which, in turn, makes them better neighbors and trading partners for us. THAT is what we call a political win-win.

    Absolutely! This bill was proposed by someone in a border state and shows how people that actually live on the southern border see their neighbors to the south. We should by all means work to improve relations with Mexico, including through cultural exchange through schools and labor programs. Then the people across the border won't so easily be made out to be the scary bogeymen that some people would have you believe that they are. Cooperation between nations should not only mean between their military and police departments. We can do more in cooperation than in competition.

    I’m very borderline decision with this. Yes, economically strengthening ties with neighbors for a NA alliance is good. Education can build it up. HOWEVER, the U.S. needs to build a atudious culture, similar but not exact, to asian countries. CULTURE, NOT SYSTEM. I find enviornment to be the reason why Americans are not doing so well academically. Improve American’s studious ways, and our nation will grow.

    Of course. Very much needed. We cannot deny reality. A stronger México y a stronger USA and viceversa.
