The president of Mexico held a news conference today to ask that the American people stop sending factories to Mexico.
"We appreciate the gesture, but we do not need your factories. If the American people are having trouble with finding workers for their factories, I would be happy to send more of my compatriots to your country. "
He told the gathered crowd of "journalists."
"As it is right now, we do not need American factories in my country. We have been working very hard at getting rid of our poor by sending them to America. If the Americans keep sending us their factories, it will make it difficult to encourage my people to leave.
"We are not a welfare system who wants to take care of the poor. America's system works very well."
Following the news, illegal immigrants were seen crossing the US Mexican border in their droves. One told me, "Shucks, they's got better food, better girls and better drink over in Mexico, I tell you what," before firing his gun in the air and yelling "Yee-Haw!"
