RE the July 13 column by Andres Oppenheimer headlined, Trump’s No. 1 lie about Mexico and U.S. jobs: The author says automation is the driver behind diminishing jobs, not outsourcing, and suggested “better education and job training.”
That’s as general a thought process as Trump talking about building a big, beautiful wall.
In the limited space of a Letter to Editor, here’s something completely different and all encompassing:
A North American Marshall Plan where U.S. and Canada exchange immigration amnesty with Mexico in exchange for Mexico inviting American/Canadian engineers and construction companies across the border with our equipment and resources, to work on infrastructure projects.
Never miss a local story.
To pay for these projects, Mexico would borrow from Carlos Slim, the Mexican/American zillionaire, who through leveraging, would stand to make another fortune. In theory, this is just an idea folks, no worries.
