In a previous post,
I linked to a story about the Mexican government publishing a safety booklet for Mexicans looking to illegally cross into the U.S. Now, a Mexican state, Yucatan, has gotten into the act with a publication called The Guide for the Yucatecan Migrant. There's even an accompanying DVD.

One of the interesting observations (though I know this has been made in many other places) is that the Mexican government may be encouraging illegal immigration. Money sent to Mexico from residents (legal or otherwise) in the U.S. accounts for $16.6 billion dollars. That's big business.
