From the LAT:
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bill Jones proposed federal incentives Monday to create jobs in Mexico and help reduce the economic motive propelling illegal immigration.
Jones, revisiting a theme of his campaign, argued that a porous border with Mexico threatens national security and called for a sharp increase in the number of border patrol agents, completion of a stalled border fence project north of Tijuana and creation of a guest-worker program for U.S. industries facing labor shortages...
He kinda lost me at the end there. The other proposals might have some merit, but how about Mexico reforming its system a bit? When it has more millionaires than Germany and a vastly lower standard of living, one might assume there's something a bit wrong.
