The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in Mexico was worth 1143.79 billion US dollars in 2015. U.S. goods and services trade with Mexico totaled an estimated $583.6 billion in 2015.

It is probable that the actions of the American President have as much effect on the Mexican economy as the actions of the Mexican President.

Do you ever wonder about the actions of the late, unlamented Iraqi President-Dictator-Trump-Wannabe-For Life?

Back in the 90s employees at the equivalent to the treasury dept. joked that they should erect a statue to Saddam in front of their building. every time he ratcheted tensions, oil went up in price.

And while Bush the younger wasn't popular here, he drove oil prices to levels unimagined.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

With Latinos in the USA, Bush, the younger, was the most popular Republican President.
Probably JFK was the most popular Democratic President.

But it's meaningless because you do
it all the time. It's your way of ending
a conversation before it begins. It's
a habit, you can't help it. You're the
superior intellect in every conversation
and you get that across at the start.


I only do it to you Bob, because I figure writing in the style of Donald Trump might make it easier for you to understand.

Fact is, you deliberately misquoted me.

Fact is, you don't want to own up to your bad behaviour.

Fact is, your deflecting from it, and attacking the poster, not the argument.

Which is, I was told by one ex-debate team member, the first sign the other party has lost the argument.

He's not -that- bad. I'd guess he was the least worst option for you after Harper?

Of the major economic powers, Japan tolerates very little immigration

1 in xx.xx is foreign born
>100 Mexico
61.8 Japan
21.0 Argentina
12.3 Russia
10.3 Italy
8.3 France
7.9 Spain
7.6 United Kingdom
7.0 United States (official numbers)
6.7 Germany
6.0 Sweden
5.6 United States including estimated illegal immigrant population
4.6 Canada
4.1 Israel
3.6 Australia
3.4 Switzerland
2.6 Hong Kong

Foreign born in Switzerland is probably from other parts of europe. Hong Kong may come from other parts of China. I am not sure where Australian immigrants come from.

Are these figures for the total population of each country on a certain day of the year, or is some other measure represented like births in one year vs. Immigration in the same year (not including temporary visa holders, like tourists, students and H1B temporary workers)?

Total population of each country on a recent date (end of 2015).

I based the table on these numbers for total migrant numbers from the United Nations. They do not include estimated illegal immigrants. I did not include Arab nations in the "1 out of n" tables because I don't think the huge number of guest workers have immigrant status.

Total number of immigrants at end of 2015 (countries more than 1.5 million immigrants)
46,627,102 United States of America
12,005,690 Germany
11,643,276 Russian Federation
10,185,945 Saudi Arabia
8,543,120 United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
8,095,126 United Arab Emirates
7,835,502 Canada
7,784,418 France
6,763,663 Australia
5,852,953 Spain
5,788,875 Italy
5,240,960 India
4,834,898 Ukraine
3,913,258 Thailand
3,628,956 Pakistan
3,546,778 Kazakhstan
3,142,511 South Africa
3,112,026 Jordan
2,964,916 Turkey
2,866,136 Kuwait
2,838,665 China, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region
2,726,420 Iran (Islamic Republic of)
2,543,638 Singapore
2,514,243 Malaysia
2,438,702 Switzerland
2,175,399 Côte d'Ivoire
2,086,302 Argentina
2,043,877 Japan
2,011,727 Israel
1,997,776 Lebanon
1,979,486 Netherlands
1,844,978 Oman
1,687,640 Qatar
1,639,771 Sweden

Singapore and Switzerland have large percentage of migrants, but as very small physical countries and major financial centers they represent migration more akin to urbanization. Côte d'Ivoire is the only African country on the list, and probably represents war refugees.
