Please Get Out Of Your Country!

Can you imagine the president of the United States actively encouraging his fellow citizens to live in another country? Can you imagine your president visiting Ottowa to beg the Canadian Prime Minister to open Canada's southern border and allow tens of millions of Americans to cross (illegally). Would you still be proud to be an American? I know I wouldn't.
Mexican citizens don't need to imagine such a scenario. For them, it's a reality.
According to my Almanac, Mexico's current population is about 104 million. The government - led by President Vicente Fox - is obviously desperate to reduce that number. Presumably, they must have a specific number in mind. I wonder what it is? 90 million? 80 million? Let's say it's 75 million. Why don't they simply ask the United Nations to help them to relocate those 29 million citizens that are surplus to requirements?
