I know you're being sarcastic, but there are a huge number of people
trying to make this happen so that business can use cheap Mexican labor
because the minimum wage is devastating American businesses trying to
compete with China.
We all know that within weeks/months of that happening, 75% of Americans
would be out of jobs. Go read about the American truckers, they are all
about to lose their jobs to Mexican drivers (who don't have hours/day
driving limits, or criminal/drug checks) via treaty.
In the end the choice is do we lose our jobs to China/India or to
Mexico. Keeping our jobs long ago was removed from the options.
