A new Calculus of Immigration

At the risk of being written off as naïve or not cynical enough, yesterday’s NYTimes article titled “Better Lives for Mexicans Cut Allure of Going North” gave me hope. It’s a long article so I wont summarize it for you but I would definitely recommend it. What I got from it was that times, as Bob Dylan famously sang, are a-changin’. The country we live, the draconian political climate around this country is neither sustainable nor permanent. Mexico’s economy is growing, there’s less poverty now than there was even five years ago and more people have access to better schools and better jobs.

Either way. Because I think a little celebration is healthy, take a look at the article!
