Corruption Forces Mexicans North
Dobbs Exposes The Truth About Mexico

Lou Dobbs Tonight - CNN - December 16
Dobbs: Tonight an estimated fifteen million illegal aliens live in this country, at least half of them from Mexico. Many are here because they chose to flee crushing poverty in Mexico. But in point of fact, Mexico is one of the richest countries in Latin America; millionaires, billionaires and the wealth is concentrated among a very few. Casey Wian reports from Los Angeles.
Casey Wian: They sneak across the border seeking jobs they can't find in Mexico. The question isn't why they come; the question is why can't Mexico's economy support its own people.
