Out Kristen Ramos with a -- now posse advisor and the end.
I'm so glad you're with us because this -- Mexican tourism story is being many people are just quite frankly.
Afraid to go to Mexico.
Actually what would what I -- in this reporter this Paper.
That that we out on Fox News Latino dot com is actually the reverse that we actually have tourism from Mexico into the United States increased people don't realize international.
Tourism into the United States is a 150.
Three billion dollar business in the United States.
Mexico is the second largest tourist market into the United States -- the eleventh largest country in the world in the twelfth largest population.
They spends around eight billion dollars Mexican nationals in the United States and around eight billion dollars in 2000 intent.
And jobs from that tourism industry -- the United States actually supported six million American workers that's.
An incredible investment.
Especially considering how hard it is for Mexican tourists to come into the United States from Mexico.
The -- but my Clinton in the beginning was that people are free.
And that is why -- because the what is your article is that you're not getting any attention.
You that there Mexicans are getting any help coming here right you mentioned Arizona Arizona basically wants to big fence I just.
Right -- and I understand there -- rationale as well but.
There is a fear out there I think because we only hear really awful stories about what goes on in Mexico and so therefore the notion being.
I don't we don't want to hear -- our her and -- well from a.
See that's that's part of the problem right now the middle class in Mexico is actually growing at a faster rate than it is in the United States 53%.
Of the population of Mexico is middle class people don't realize that in cities like -- a lot though or that you -- are some of these other places.
People actually getting in planes flying to the United States and buying.
American products here but again that's you know the very wealthy but what if we could tap into the potential that growing middle class and allow them to come into this country.
I don't disagree that there's a lot of horrible stories that are coming out for Mexico but -- -- the huge country.
And the fact of the matter is states like Arizona overwhelmingly benefit from people crossing over through the ports of entry.
To spend their money I don't understand how we can lend somebody a man in the moon.
But we can't figure out a way to create a Visa system which allows people to come in spend their hard earned money and then.
Go back to their country of origin I think that's just get a Smart business for everybody.
-- all and but you also -- am sure you also understand that.
Media -- crap out of this story and mean and this is what happens unfortunately sometimes where there -- only telling one side of it and so the perception out there.
He's been way worse than the reality so as a result.
I'm -- -- get past that how do you fix the image.
I think you just have to keep you know really hammering on this point look.
The American side of the southwest border is the safest region in the country bar -- Places like El Paso, Texas which is across the border from one of the -- safe countries in the entire world is actually safer then some cities in like Dayton Ohio.
Which is -- further -- I -- the arguments that the American side of the border or letting more.
Rich Mexicans coming to buy -- American products is quite simply it it it ignores the statistical evidence that comes from the Department of Commerce ignores the FBI crime statistics which.
You know are are pretty.
Hard to -- -- that regard so proud.
And you and I both know you see we see MTV -- -- just -- -- entire country right.
But that's not enough and unfortunately that's -- we do you know I know I can you live media you can and I get it.
Let's have a Hispanic vote -- and what do what do you know that is can be so valuable in 2012.
What we -- is it right now.
You know I think of the Republican Party is done a great disservice in.
