One under-remarked point: Mexico is not "dangerous." It has abundant resources, jet travel, hospitals, indoor plumbing, a middle class and many very wealthy people. Even granting the wildly hyperbolic first premise--that Honduras and Guatemala are so dangerous life without physical assault is impossible--there is no reason that Hondurans and Guatemalans cannot stop there.

And the future consequences are going to be awful; we owe no future consideration to our children and grandchildren and the kind of society we leave them?
