Sadly the main reason is decades of American interference in their affairs and the US consumption of drugs forced into a black market by their war on drugs. 

I made a post about a week ago, where I laid a large percentage of the "border problem" at the feet of the misguided "War on Drugs". IMO, decriminalize possession of all types of drugs. Legalize recreational drugs. Sell them the same way you do other controlled substances like cigarettes and booze. Tax them.....

 

I think a big portion of the border issue goes away after that....

You've just eliminated several GOP talking points.

 

Lol.

I always suspected that when you were talking about how good powder is in Whistler.

You were really not talking about the snow were you?

So take the money out of the hands of one set of criminals and right into the hands of another set of criminals.

CNN is full of what makes the grass grow green. Fox too. Anyone who thinks either "news" entity, or any major American media conglomerate, is actually interested in reporting the news, is fooling themselves.

It depends on whether you're talking about news stories or opinion stories.  CNN has some good reporting, but also plenty of editorial opinion segments.  Fox, aside from Wallace, is pretty much all opinion/propaganda

Basically cnn is a steaming pile of dog poop whereas fox news is like a heaping pile of elephant poop. Both stink but there is definitely a difference

Mostly everyone understands fact checkers work for the luxury class. But on an even more obvious note, the fact check should be on the guy from CNN.

Sure thing slick. You keep telling yourself that garbage sources are actually legit and the rest of us will keep looking at you like you took the short bus to school every day....:rolleyes:

There are innumerable places to get the video of him speaking. Pick the one you like. But beyond that, I'm not usually interested in any interpretation from hosts because the entertainment industry doesn't generally attract the brightest of us.
