    The incorporation of Mexico into the United States of America

    I'd like to make a proposal which would defuse the present crisis relating to fourteen million residents of the United States having no right of residence or permit to work.

    I suggest that Mexico abandon its sovereignty and allows its entire territory to be amalgamated into the United States, which would thereby gain twenty additional states and a vastly enhanced economy. The upper house in Washington would expand to 140 seats, the lower house would retain the present number of Congressors distributed proportionately across the revised states, the population density of the USA would only rise by 10%, all Mexican law would become obsolete and I suggest each of the new Mexican states should adopt and adjust the existing state law of whichever US state it chooses to model itself on.

    Problems fixed, everyone a winner. The minimal number of residents of the expanded United States of America still having no right of residence or permit to work can then be dealt with expeditiously and nobody will have built a wall. The Canadians could even have a referendum on whether they should be included.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I have no problem with that. But will I have to learn to speak Spanish?

    That would probably depend on how far north you are. That increase of 10% (!?) density would probably be in California, Arizona and Texas. I live in a border town and as it is, when I go to a doctor or hospital I am usually the only Anglo or English-speaking person in the waiting room. At WalMart all the clerks are Mexican and some of the signs are in Spanish with NO English translation. Fortunately I speak Spanish.
    Maybe I can teach it.
    I think we should float that idea before the Mexican president and see what he thinks.

    I reckon it will be a wall of snow.

    If Mexico is going to pay for the wall will they pay in Peso's? Aint gonna be much of a wall.

    Re: The incorporation of Mexico into the United States of America

    The US tried to annex Canada once, in 1812. Some politicians thought that England would be too busy with Napoleon to resist. They were wrong and it didn't work.

    The US did annex the part of Mexico they wanted in 1846.

    Mexico would never go for it.

    Much more profit taking some of our states.

    We did allow Texas to become a part of the Union.
