Mexico would have died without the option to send its rural poor, fully one-fifth of its population, to the United States-Spengler, Asia Times, 6/17/2013

6/17/2013, "Syria and Egypt can't be fixed," by Spengler, Asia Times

"Mexico would have died as well, without the option to send its rural poor - fully one-fifth of its population - to the United States.... 

Third World dictators typically keep their rural population poor, isolated and illiterate, the better to maintain control. That was the policy of Mexico's Institutional Revolutionary Party from the 1930s, which warehoused the rural poor in Stalin-modeled collective farms called ejidos occupying most of the national territory....The policy worked until it didn't. In Mexico, it stopped working during the debt crisis of the early 1980s, and Mexico's poor became America's problem."....
