This is good because Mexico has the 2nd highest mortality rate of covid cases per capita (after the UK).

You haven't been paying attention to Texans, when they want to go out..they been going out recently.

When ir comes to their 'needs' across the bordwe, they need it...nothing stands in their way of getting what they want.

And this is just the beginning! Imagine what happens when BLM supporters take over the whole country and more and more Americans will be seeking escape. Imagine newspaper articles “life of illegal immigrants from USA in Mexico”.

Mortality rate per declared case is pretty irrelevant unless you are comparing countries with similar testing procedures and rates.
Mexico is likely to test far less than countries with more means.
Its covid-related death per capita figure, however, is still lower than the US or most European nations. While it is still experiencing a surge of cases, the mortality rate appears to be slowing, so while we're still far from the final tally, I'd say they're not doing too bad for a country with a fraction of the GDP per capita of that of its northern neighbor.

And the award for the most ridiculous off-topic fear-mongering political propaganda slogan goes to!...

It has probably slipped your attention, that Mexico up to now has tested far fewer per capita (by a factor of around 20) for covid-19 than the US, so the situation in Mexico is probably much worse than the officiel numbers suggest.

The lack of testing also suggests that Mexico will be much less in control of the situation when the spread accelerates further.
