1.  COMMENT


Safety Valve


Hector Tobar's latest editorial says "Immigration, after all,
serves as a safety valve to keep the pressure cooker of Mexican
inequality from exploding. For decades, the steam has vented
steadily northward from Tijuana and other border towns." For the
full editorial, see here.
