I thought it would be interesting to take a straw poll of Debate.org opinion on whether Mexico has had a positive or negative impact on the world overall.

I'll get the ball rolling with a positive.

List of positive contributions:

Mexican Armando M. Fernández invents the mousepad.

List of negative contributions:

Yes, those Mexicans introduced violence in the United States. We previously lived in a peaceful country that overthrew the British by dumping tea into a harbor.

Import drugs

The entire drug industry into the US exists because the US are addicted and buying.

Illegal immigration

To do the jobs no Americans want to do, and because you demand cheap goods, ergo, companies are willing to continue hiring illegal immigrants. Once again, this exists because US demands it.

Violence

In the few (and they are very few when compared to ALL of Mexico) areas where violence is a problem (because of cartels) we must remember we not only created the industry, but we provide all the firearms. All the weapons.

Not really because they wanted to, but the US would be 1/4 smaller if not for Mexico (specifically, Santa Anna, lol)

Actually, we fought a war to overthrow the British, because they were taxing us without representation. The tea dumping didn't really overthrow the British. And how is this relevant?

I went to Mexico and was arrested for simply for doing the Mexican hat dance.

Nothing wrong with that, except a Mexican was wearing the hat at the time.
