Yes, we still have the work ethic. However, too many American workers just want more money than the undocumenteds to exercise it. I have a plan: Every high school should require a certain amount of "Work Ethic Studies," incorporated into the Social Studies curriculum. This should be a part of the high school graduation requirement. I know we already have a community service requirement. This is great. Just enlarge it. I opine that "Work Ethic Studies" is more important than Ethnic Studies.

That will not happen. Let me enlighten the high school in my town, teachers who grade students down for turning in work late are frowned upon for giving the student a "late grade." We are asked--where does it say you are to grade behavior instead of basing the entire grade on what the student can do? Turning in work after the dead line is a behavior, so we are not supposed to penalize for that. If a student is suspended, we are to give them their work and allow them to make it up and not penalize in any way. Work ethic is needed, but we are not allowed to hold kids accountable who show bad ones! We are also supposed to allow students to retake tests and give them the highest grade they earn (no averaging)

as the grade "should reflect what students are able to do." The philosophy is: Why should high school be the stumbling block for kids? They should get their diploma, and if they can't make it in the real world--we did our part. I can see that to a point, but I think we are taking it to the extreme.
Is mass migration from Mexico to the United States a thing of the past?

At least for the moment, it is. Last May, the Pew Hispanic Center, in a study based on U.S. and Mexican statistics, reported that net migration from Mexico to this country had fallen to zero from 2005 to 2010.

Pew said 20,000 more people moved to Mexico from the United States than from there to here in those years. That's a vivid contrast with the years 1995 to 2000, when net inflow from Mexico was 2.2 million people.

Because there was net Mexican immigration until 2007, when...
