No, Ms Manring, I didn’t know that “Mexican visitors spent $186.4 million in
Cochise County during 2007-08. I’m sure you didn’t just make up that
statistic. Would it have been too much trouble to cite your source?

How much of it is money from Mexico, and how much is it given to them as
ENTITLEMENTS from our government? You know, if they did not come across the
border illegally, and spent the money in their own shops, their economy would
be better. We don’t need to spend more money to make them more welcome here.
Spend the money for the American benefits.
