Deal With Mexico or No Deal? Who Knows?

Deal With Mexico or No Deal? Who Knows?

Well, it sounded good at first. On Saturday there was news of a rather astonishing deal with Mexico in which Mexico would keep caravaners out of the U.S. Instead they would be cooling their heels on the Mexicali side while their asylum claims moved through U.S. courts. Sounded promising, no?

And then suddenly, quicker than bad tacos passing through your gut, there was no longer a deal with Mexico.

That’s thanks to the new incoming Mexican government, headed up by president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador. After all, he’s a leftist who’s been critical of President Trump’s immigration and trade policies. He’s even called Trump a “neo-fascist,” and said that detaining Central Americans was “dirty work.”

So it’s no surprise that Obrador’s incoming interior secretary made this statement:

“Mexico’s next federal administration does not consider within its plans that Mexico assume the condition of “third secure country” for the attention of Central American migrants. . .”

But hold on. According to a report in the Washington Post, the “Remain in Mexico” plan was agreed upon last week. Major players in both the Trump and the new Obrador administration met in Houston to create the plan. They included Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and Mexico’s incoming foreign secretary Marcelo Ebrard. But now it all may be history.

President Trump, however, is standing firm. He tweeted this:

Meanwhile, nearly 5000 migrants from Central America have arrived in Tijuana, where they’re staying in a baseball field-turned-tent camp.

Tijuana’s mayor refuses to force the city’s taxpayers to foot the bill for the migrants’ care (I don’t blame him), but business leaders in Tijuana are enthusiastic. That’s because they say they have thousands of jobs open in their factories. Moreover, Mexican officials report that there are 100,000 jobs available nationwide for these Central Americans.

Sounds like a win-win, doesn’t it?

Not for the group Pueblo Sin Fronteras. They’re the group pushing to get these people into the United States, no matter what. Here’s what their “story” reads on their Facebook page:

“We accompany migrants and refugees in their journey of hope, and together demand our human rights.”
“We provide humanitarian aid and legal advise [sic] to migrants and refugees.”

In other words, their “rights” include being able to violate U.S. borders. Well, of course. The name literally means “People Without Borders,” so it’s no surprise that this group would love to poke a finger in President Trump’s eye.

Meanwhile, thousands of Central Americans have been duped into thinking it’ll be easy-peasy marching across the border to the good life in America. And why shouldn’t they believe it? Not only is Pueblo Sin Fronteras paving their way, Methodist and Catholic activists and leftwing foundations are adding their support.

In short, they’re using these people as political pawns. Foolish people like the Guatemalan mother who tried to climb the U.S-Mexican border fence near San Ysidro and fell. Pieces of rebar impaled her. But Border Patrol gave her aid (wait a minute, aren’t they sadistic monsters?), got her to a hospital, and then took her into custody after the hospital released her.

There will be more incidents like this, especially if the deal with Mexico falls through and President Trump closes the border. But don’t blame him. Blame instead the groups and activists who have no problem using gullible people as props in their campaign to discredit the president and destroy American sovereignty.

    Sadly the Catholic church, like the Dr’s that Marta talked about have gone way out of their lane…. I guess having a Pope that’s a South American leftist will do that to you. Sad, because as you’ve pointed out, like all other leftist, they advocate for destructive policies, act surprised when those policies do what any sane person can see they will, cause the collapse of society, then encourage people with those same failed ideas to move like a plague of locusts, and do the same thing to another area…
    Seems quite a few sci-fi movies have been made on that theme…
