Worker-less Economy: I’m not talking about 10, 20 or even 50 years down the line. I’m talking about the future, that will come at some point, where the amount of actual human capital needed to sustain the tasks for daily life cannot support a worker economy. Put more simply, what do we do when machines can do everything for us?

Confirmed: Mexico, Guatemala fast-track illegals to U.S. by granting regional visitor cards

Confirmed: Mexico, Guatemala fast-track illegals to U.S. by granting regional visitor cards | Political Consulting . . . all things political | Scoop.it

NEW YORK – Mexico and Guatemala have reached an agreement that is intended to make it easier and safer for Central Americans, including unaccompanied minors, to enter the United States illegally.

Though largely unreported in the U.S. mainstream media, the two nations agreed on July 7, in a presidential-level meeting in Mexico, to make it legal and safe for Central American immigrants, including unaccompanied minors, to cross Mexico’s border with Guatemala and transit Mexico en route to the U.S. border at the Rio Grande.

The agreement apparently does not recognize that the result of such trips – entry into the United States – remains illegal.

But to facilitate the program, the Mexican government announced plans to issue a new “Regional Visitor Card” that will provide documentation for the Central Americans to remain in Mexico as long as it takes to get to the United States.

Under the auspices of a “Southern Border Program,” Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan President Otto Pérez, in a meeting in Mexico, agreed to take five concrete steps designed to “protect and safeguard the human rights of migrants who enter and transit Mexico, so as to order international routes of passage [in and through Mexico] to increase and develop the security of the region.”

The five steps in Mexican “Southern Border Program” included the following action steps:

littlebytesnews's curator insight, July 12, 12:14 AM

I first saw reports of this earlier in the week from conservative sites and thought it was a conspiracy theory or satire because it seemed hard to believe....but it appears it is true that Mexico and Guatamala have opened up their border to aid in the trafficking of illegals through Mexico into the US. As long as they are traveling through Mexico to get to the US illegals crossing into Mexico from the southern border will be given regional visitor passes, allowing them to pass through without being detained or deported by Mexico.

 

WTH!! This is allowing an invasion from Mexico into the US and these are countries receiving billions in aid from the US...for what so they can violate our laws and send their poor and sick to the US because they would rather pad their pockets with the billions in aid money we send them to improve their economies and improve security in their countries??!! US aid to Mexico and Central America MUST stop now! Use this money to secure our border and expedite the deportation of these illegal immigrants invading the US! In addition change the 2008 trafficking law that allows the US to assign these illegals a lawyer, fast track them back to their countries of orgin like we do with illegals from Mexico and Canada!!

 

This invasion must stop now!
