Reduce immigration from Mexico
People deserve access to knowledge. Rural Mexico is poor. Children work on family farms instead of studying in school. No rural libraries means adults have unanswered questions, a lack of solutions for income. Recycling old books from the USA into libraries built on native land and maintained by locals will help overcome emigration into the USA. Volunteer teachers come but they need an enclosed dry space.
Knowledge is power. Powerful people create jobs for themselves. Emigration to the USA often occurs because of a lack of access to knowledge in rural areas of Mexico. If used books were recycled out of the USA then people in Mexico would have more access to knowledge and less reason to leave their home country. Promote education.
