Today’s Notable Quote: " "If a lot of chicken comes in from the United States, we’re not going to be able to maintain our farms. People are going to get fired. People are going to go north." – Pedro Martin, poultry farm employee in Pegueros, Mexico
According to this Washington Post story, there are many in Mexico who would rather remain–but feel they must choose to move to the U.S. due to economic necessisity resulting, at least in part from the 1994 NAFTA agreement.
