The United Nations still has only a limited presence inside Iraq but officials in neighbouring Jordan say they are trying to secure emergency funds because of expectations this internal refugee problem will grow."
Now even more recently came the news that 10% of Mexico's population ( 15% of its labor force ) is in the U.S.
I have developed an alternate proposal to the immigration debate. Let's get the UN to declare the illegal immigrants economic refugees fleeing a corrupt narco-regime. We could have them setup refugee camps in the deserts along the border and any refugee found among the general population will be sent to these camps to receive essential necessities and medical assistance from the UN's emergency relief funds. Perhaps humiliate Mexico into rehabilitation. I know... it's a crazy idea... but then it's a crazy world.
