Q. I've been watching the news, and seeing a lot about the refugee caravans and camps. It always amazes me how clean the clothes are. It isn't just what is going on in Mexico, I've seen it in African refugee camps also.. As I see it, the best solution for this is to coordinate with the Mexican government, and establish a refugee camps on Mexican soil.
A. When I tune into this, it is a really tough situation. I see an image of a chess board, and hear these people are like pawns in a much larger game.
It is true that the countries they are fleeing have little opportunity for growth, and the living conditions are poor. This was in part due to their government and partly due to other countries taking advantage of low wages (driving wages down).
