Abstract:

Failures in Mexico's economic model have pushed millions of unemployed workers toward the U.S., creating a crisis on both sides of the border. President Felipe Calderón must reform Mexico's economy to create new private-sector jobs, and President Bush and Congress should support Mexican efforts to help solve the immigration crisis, open Mexico to more U.S. exports and investment, and secure our border.
