Mexico is a mess. More than a mess, really.
It’s a burning high rise of a nation.
It’s on fire from top to bottom — from border to border. North to south.
Mexico’s mix of corruption, crime, wealth, and poverty should make any thinking person north of the Rio Grande shudder about its future. And ours.
Within its city limits, Mexico City’s population is just under 9 million people. But there is little to that number because, wrapped like a constrictor around the city, is a suburban morass of 12 million more citizens. At nearly 22 million, Mexico City’s metro-area population is the third largest of its kind in the world.
Roughly, it’s like having 22 million people in an area the size of Albuquerque’s metro-area and Santa Fe’s metro area combined. You think there’s a lot of space there until you consider that we’re talking about two Chicagos and a Houston set in that same space.
You get the idea. Mexico City is crowded. With the population comes pollution and an aquifer that’s become so depleted the city is sinking. Projections for Mexico City’s water supply running dry run from dire to doom — 20 years to 60 years.
