What I found interesting about this week’s reading was how NAFTA was supposed to help slow illegal immigration from Mexico to the United States but unfortunately that didn’t happen at all instead it probably increased illegal immigration overall into the United States. “When NAFTA finally became a reality, on Jan. l, 1994, American investment flooded into Mexico, mostly to finance factories that manufacture automobiles, appliances, TV sets, apparel and the like. The expectation was that the Mexican government would do its part by investing billions of dollars in roads, schooling, sanitation, housing and other needs to accommodate the new factories as they spread through the country” (Ochitelle p.289). Even people in the government during this time had assumed that the money would actually be used to help the people and reduce the need for people to illegally immigrate to America but that didn’t happen at all it instead made it far worse. “As relatively well-paying jobs disappeared, Mexico’s average wage for production workers, already low, fell further behind the average hourly pay of production workers in the United States, and Mexicans responded by migrating.”The main thing that would have stemmed the flow of people across the border was a rapid increase in wages in Mexico,” said Dani Rodrik, an economist and trade specialist at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. ” And that certainly has not happened.” (Ochitelle p291). What could help make it so people don’t feel like they have to immigrate illegally to America from Mexico? Does NAFTA need to be removed and replaced by something else ? As it clearly shows it isn’t working.
