Why US Politicians Ignore The Major Cause Of Mexican illegal Immigration

There are two explanations as to why US politicians ignore the major cause of Mexican illegal immigration:  1) they profit by ignoring it, or  2)  they are brainwashed also and can't see the cause.

The Mexican undocumented who make up over 50% of the undocumented who sneak across our border do so because of the economic conditions of their home country.  

Common sense dictates that the vast majority of those Mexican undocumented would not come or stay here if they could have equivalent wages and services at home.  The majority of these people are  religious, hard working , family people who love Mexico.  They come here is to better their lives and to help feed their families at home.   They come here because the federal minimum wage in Mexico is about 65 CENTS per hour.

So why do our politicians and leaders fail to address this fact or at a minimum, refuse to discuss it? 
Dig deep into the economic relationship of the US and Mexican elite.

Dig deep into the Border Security Industrial Complex.

Dig deep into the use of undocumented labor by US mega agriculture corporations.

Are you starting to get the profit picture here?    

The Gang of 8's current immigration reform bill uses the same failed propaganda that Reagan's Amnesty of the mid 1980's use and Clinton's NAFTA of the mid 1990's used.   "We can stop illegal immigration by increased border security and tighter interior enforcement (employment eligibility verification then and E Verify now).   

The Gang of 8 is using the same method of operation (expanded in scope and cost) that failed with the other two programs.  In fact, the number of undocumented within the US actually increased after the two previous attempts to stop it.

This Gang of 8's immigration bill fits Einstein's definition of insanity perfectly : doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

These Senators are either insanely stupid or insanely greedy.  You choose. 
But please ask yourselves why they ignore the home-country root poverty as the cause of our illegal immigration.  Or put another way, what is in it for them to ignore the root cause of our undocumented immigration?
