I'm pretty sure that deeper level is more Minnesota businesses moving their means of production to Mexico to take advantage of cheap labor, lax environmental laws and fewer regulations as well as tax havens for profits off shore and in the process drive down wages and tax revenue even more in Minnesota. Many more Polaris situations await new trade agreements. That is the down side.

If you want to strengthen the ties between Mpls/St Paul and their respective sister cities, then work on improving flight options down there. Every year a large group of us go to Manzanillo. We love it there. But each year it gets harder and harder to find flights, and it gets more expensive. No more direct flights from Sun Country or Delta. Now its an overnight lay over at LAX, or a 5 am flight with switch in Houston (which isn't so bad except the leg from Houston to Manzanillo is always booked. If you want Minnesotans to travel to Mexico, at least make it easy for us to get there.
