Ford is sticking with its plan to build two new factories in Mexico, despite an announcement last month that it had scrapped plans for a plant in the central state of San Luis Potosi.

The US carmaker said a planned factory in the central state of Guanajuato will build engines and transmissions, while another in the northern city of Chihuahua will make car parts for use by Ford factories in the United States, South America and Asia.

The two facilities will cost about $2.5 billion and employ some 3,800 people, said Gabriel Lopez, president and CEO of Ford Mexico

Wouldn't America be better served if these plants were built in America?  That's 3800 jobs that Americans could, should be doing.


The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.

Hmm, maybe some of the US unemployed should consider sneaking south of the border?

Ummm....it's not our job to improve Mexico's economy.  Their lazy, corrupt government is who that should be falling on.

Isn't that what they're doing? I'm certain they incentivized Ford to come.

Oh, I'm sure they did.  But Ford is doing it to cut costs, and line the pockets of their execs.  I'm sure this is something you'd be against.

The US had spent decades undermining economic growth in Central America (i.e. United Fruit Company, Goodyear, etc). All it got us was corrupt governments and economic refugees.

If Central American countries improve economically, we'll see fewer Central Americans entering the US.

What's the problem with that?
