Are there any other TWO nations in the world with immigration issues like Mexico/USA?

Where a seemingly 'wealthy' nation is being populated by a neighboring country under the reason of bettering oneself?

No. All other countries are ethnically pure.

funny.

Seriously. I know I've recently heard about France's unrest in this area, too.

But, I am not from there and wonder if it compares a little or a lot.

France has welcomed its Muslim immigrants as their population decline is so precipitous. They just want to keep their LEGAL immigrants from being integrated into their society, hence the recent unrest.

Very different from what's happening here with US/Mexico. IMO.

I heard once that the US/Mexico border is the only place in the world where a "first world" country borders a "third world" country.

xenophobia/racism is at high levels in Germany. unemployment coupled with Pakistanis and other non-Germans moving in have elevated tension levels there.

You are not understanding the phrase third world. When Mexico is referred to as Third World it is in a political sense, not economical. The phrase is from the cold war and denotes countries who align themselves with neither the west nor the soviet bloc.



This is a Human Development Index, green being wealthy and dark red being totally skint. As you can see Mexico is not a developing nation.

They are the quintessential "sheeple" who have that half vacant look in their eye,
for"the man" to tell them "this is how it is" - and then they go do it. I saw a person
holding a sign that said "health care and education"...a sheeple just waiting for
someone to take care of him/her - no, EXPECTING it. Like some animal in a barn.

I know Norway has serious immigration problems going on right now.

From the news I have seen, it is mostly with middle eastern folks coming into the country or are already there.

but I doubt it is anything like what we have here in the states.

Cool map SLM. Too bad this thread is starting to smell bad due to shakeman emanations. My impression is that few in the U.S. realize how ultra-affluent we all (even those living in "poverty") are compared to much of the world.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Somewhere I read, and no I don't have link, that if you had a home computer you were in the top 7% of the rich of the worlds population.

Was surprising, but I can see within a few % points that being true.
