Update:

You people can't read!!!

1) the article does not say that people died because they crossed the border!!

2) We all know the man is of Lebanese descent!! But he got in the Media and claimed to be Mexican. Damn!

3) The whole point of the question was to compare the riches of one men with the poorness of the country and the article was just an example of the poorness and despairity.

YOU PEOPLE DON'T PAY ATTENTION!!

    Mexico is NOT a poor country. The problem there is that the wealth is concentrated in too few hands. The Mexican government could fix that with progressive taxation reform, and new-dealism type spending.

    Get a move on, President Calderon.

    That article is totally biased. It's not security along the border that causes migrant deaths. It's the suckiness of Mexico that causes people to want to get away from it, even risking their lives to do so. If Mexico didn't suck so much, people would stay there. Too many people in Mexico have the belief that it's better to be an illegal alien in the USA, than to be a citizen in the country of their origin.

    first of all, it's not only mexicans that are trying to cross the border... there are other races as well, and second mexico isn't the poorest country. They need money to feed their families and live a better life, why do you think they need work, so they could shove it in people's faces?! no, that's the wrong answer.
