Mexico is set to become the biggest exporter of automobiles to the USA, according to the Yucatan Times;
Mexico is on track to replace the Asian automotive giant, Japan, as the second-largest exporter of cars to the United States by the end of the year.
An $800 million Honda plant opening Friday in the central state of Guanajuato will produce about 200,000 Fit hatchbacks a year, helping push total Mexican car exports to the U.S. to 1.7 million in 2014, roughly 200,000 more than Japan, consulting firm IHS Automotive says. And, with another big plant starting next week, Mexico is expected to surpass Canada for the top spot by the end of 2015.For just the reasons given in the textbooks, lower costs of production. Which fact should be noticed as the solution to the illegal immigration problem here in the USA. As opportunities multiply south of the border, fewer Mexicans will cross illegally into the north.
