Out of the spotlight

Regarding the subject of illegal aliens, the spotlight seems to always be on the people who crossed our borders illegally or the U.S. system. It never touches on the corrupt, inept government of Mexico that for decades has failed to provide a decent economy for its citizens or the welfare system in our nation that allows millions of able-bodied adults to remain idle due to a destroyed work ethic.

For decades, Mexico has encouraged its citizens to leave Mexico and enter this nation illegally. As for our welfare system, the liberals will say these jobs that illegals take don't pay enough to support Americans. So are we to believe that it's better to sit idle in public housing and earn nothing than to work at a job that pays something?
