Mexico City Megacity

Mexico City’s population is around 40 million. Most people estimate only the actually city, and not the surrounding state of Mexico that is just as much city as the official “city”. The quality is not the best here. This is like a documentary of megacities.

Are Immigrants Stealing American Jobs?

I don’t necessarily agree with this girl, but it is an informational video from her point of view.

I think that the US should open their border legally to more Mexicans, and much more than any other country. Mexicans rarely take high paying jobs in the US. Yet Chinese, Japonese, Indian, etc. people get the special privilege visas and green cards and visas, and the Mexicans get slammed basically.

The truth of the matter is that the majority of Mexican immigrants to the US work hard, get fed up with the expensive lifestyle requirements of the US, and turn around and go home on their own. Many stay. But they basically want to become American citizens and fit into the US culture and country. They are not importing Shariah law, but just a good work ethic.

This is a video showing Mexico City. Turn off or down low the audio before you watch this. I do not approve of the audio. But there are some real nice drone images of downtown Mexico City.

Documentary: Mexico City

This is a TV documentary series on Megacities, and in this installment, this series examines Mexico City, the city where we minister. This video is by a secular group, but it does give a lot of information about our city. It focuses mainly on earthquakes and a little on the volcanos in close proximity Mexico City.

47 minutes long

My Comments

It is difficult to describe Mexico City to people who have never been there, and even living there, it is difficult to comprehend at times.

Earthquakes – Usually they are less dramatic as presented here (these are simulations). The constant focusing on tremors is very true. The SAS system doesn’t always work though. There are different kinds of earthquakes, and their origins are different, and some seem to come from distances 1000s of miles away and Mexico City is the bowl of jello that shakes when somebody bumps the other end of the table. When somebody bumps the plate of jello, there is no warning. Also quakes are of the type of rolling back and forth, circulating around, or up and down jerking. The last one is deadly.

The second floor or story of the Periferico is now functioning. No matter what assurances any engineer gives, nobody wants to be on the second story when an earthquake hits though. 🙂 The fact that it sways like a palm tree in a strong wind only reinforces what I say here.

Volcanos – I have had my car dusted with volcanic ash that destroy the finish on the car.
