36. What do you think is it about the world
that will never make it work?

If the US can sigh an agreement that affects workers rights and wages in mexico in a negative way (NAFTA/CAFTA), then the US can also sign an agreement that affects workers rights in a positive way. Then Mexican workers would have no reason to illegally migrate to the US.
Knowing that you'd be obstructed every step of the way by corporate lobbyists, don't you think it would be worth the effort to get the US to sign such an agreement?
