As of 2016 there were 5.4 million unauthorized immigrants from Mexico living in the United States. Conservatives are concerned about how unauthorized immigrants in the United States are not paying taxes and taking advantage of public services in our country. Liberals are concerned that the unauthorized immigrants from mexico entering the U.S. would have significantly lower incomes if they were sent back to Mexico. As of December 22, 2018 the U.S. government was shutdown because congress refused to pass a budget that included funding for President Trump's proposed border wall leaving many federal employees without pay until a budget is passed. If a compromise between the concerns for the welfare of Mexicans wanting the American dream and American citizens in the U.S. could be found, both sides could be happy. If the United States were to annex Mexico and divide mexico into 31 new states, no border wall would be necessary to completely stop illegal immigration from mexico because they would all become U.S. citizens. The U.S. would finally have jurisdiction to stop Mexican cartels from bringing dangerous drugs and illegal guns into our country. From a national defense perspective, the U.S. would have a significantly smaller land border with other countries, and the U.S. already has by far the largest navy in the world. Mexican laborers would benefit by having a minimum wage of $7.25/hr which is a dramatic increase from the equivalent of roughly $3.90 dollars per day as of 2017. America would further benefit from access to Mexico's vast natural resources including oil. Mexico is the 12 largest producer of oil and the largest producer of avocados with the next largest avocado producing country making less than one third of Mexico's production. If the United States made moves to annex Mexico with the support of the Mexican people, the citizens of both countries would significantly benefit, and the debate over the proper way to stop illegal immigration from Mexico would finally be over.
