Why Los Angeles Is NOT Turning Into Mexico
1. We have our cake and eat it too. What happens when you mix hard-working immigrants willing to do more for less money with some of the wealthiest communities on planet earth? You get a unparalleled quality of life. You get a place where you can have your car washed, your baby taken care of, your home improved, and your lawn mowed on the cheap. Every time you eat out you enjoy the benefits of immigration. Check that kitchen. Who's cooking up that affordable meal? See who's washing those dishes. Now, if this were Mexico, you wouldn't be able to afford all that. But since it's not, we get the best of both worlds.
