Mexico City, MX: In a reversal of their immigration policy, the Mexican government now welcomes all illegal Americans who enter Mexico. Temporary housing will also be provided to the newcomers.
Following the passage of the "Cap and Trade Tax" by the US Congress, Americans and their businesses begin to quietly slip over the Mexican border to evade the energy tax. Mexico was alarmed and began to build a border security fence paralleling the US fence, but to no avail.
Then Mexican government officials noticed something was happening. The average Mexican's standard of living was rising and Mexico's Domestic National Product (DNP) doubled. The Americans were not taking Mexican jobs, but creating and stimulating the growth of new higher paying jobs for everybody. Crime and corruption decreased in Mexico.
Mexico then abandoned their fence and encouraged Americans to emigrate, by just passing through their own border fence via car or truck or flying into the country. Coal, oil and natural gas exploration and equipment companies came first, followed by the nuclear power industry and other electricity producing enterprises (clean coal). Next came various steel mills to merge with their Mexican counterparts, automobile manufacturing (GMC, Ford, and Chrysler), the computer/electronics industry relocated to Copper Canyon, and even the solar power industry set up shop in the desert near Monterrey. Cattle rancher's transferred all their livestock to their new Mexican partner's rancheros. Financial companies were welcomed except for AIG, Citigroup and sub prime mortgage companies.
If the immigration of Americans to Mexico continues at the currently high rates only environmentalists, PETA members, the Obama Administration and Congress, and Al Gore will be left in the lower 48 States. The USA carbon footprint has been reduced from an L. L. Bean hiking boot size to an Italian stiletto shoe size, along with the US economy.
