Prescient Trump – Hidden Report: Mexico Remittances Total More Than Entire Mexican Oil Revenue….

Mexico’s former president Felipe Calderon recently responded to Donald Trump’s border wall proposal by stating:

…The Mexican people, we are not going to pay any single cent for such a stupid wall! And it’s going to be completely useless… (link)

Why now?

Why would Calderon make such a claim at this specific moment in time?  Well, here’s a report that will answer that question.

calderone trump

(Mexico) Remittances sent home by Mexicans working outside the country surpassed petroleum revenues in 2015 for the first time.   There was a 4.75% increase in money sent from abroad, most of which comes from the U.S., to total US $24.8 billion last year, up from $23.6 billion in 2014, said the Bank of México.

The bank said it was the first time remittances had totaled more than petroleum revenues since it began tracking them in 1995.   Oil revenues last year totaled $23.4 billion.

An important factor in the increase in remittances is the jobs created by economic recovery in the U.S.   Some 11 million Mexicans are believed to be living in the U.S. and many work in construction. Remittances, 97% of which are sent electronically, averaged $292 last year. (link)

Yes, you read that correctly. Immigrant remittances received by Mexico have surpassed Mexico’s $23.4 billion in oil earnings.  This means the government of Mexico is more dependent than ever on the earnings of maids and gardeners in the U.S. to keep itself afloat. This is the leverage Donald Trump talks about to pressure Mexico to pay for the border wall.

The topic of illegal immigration is a subject we have reviewed, researched and offered possible solutions to be considered for over four years. In Part ONE we outlined how illegal aliens achieve work in the U.S. and what would be needed to remove the incentive.

Any solution to solving the problem must first understand how the problem of illegal alien employment is supported by U.S. policy. In our opinion, removing those conflicting employment policies is something that has to be done.

illegals_crossing_border_future_demsTrump grin

We have reviewed Donald Trump’s border security and immigration proposals. Happily, he, and those who advise him, appear to be right over the target.

In addition to PART ONE understanding illegal alien employment“, back in 2014 we shared the predictable impact of just enforcing the current U.S. laws on border entry – with the simple addition of a border wall.

Trump’s proposal carries: the border wall solution, the employment solution, the enforcement mechanisms of current law, and another angle that is strategically essential. “WESTERN UNION REMITTANCES” (Money Services Compliance):

[…] Meanwhile, Mexico continues to make billions on not only our bad trade deals but also relies heavily on the billions of dollars in remittances sent from illegal immigrants in the United States back to Mexico ($22 billion in 2013 alone)

[…] Mexico must pay for the wall and, until they do, the United States will, among other things: impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages; [page 2, paragraph 7]

In April 2015, within another CTH article written about actually solving the issue, in direct response to the flaws in the Gang of Eight proposal we wrote:

Any actual immigration proposal will have substantive impact on the root causes and not just the illegal alien individuals working around the flawed systems to the benefit of their families.

illegal aliens major

As previously mentioned if any candidate wanted to get serious about stopping illegal alien influx they would have to put forth something similar to this:

If you want to begin a mass plan to deal with illegals, start first by eliminating, or regulating, Money Transfer services to Mexico (western union etc) Watch how quickly the problem begins to self-correct.

But no-one wants to actually propose factual solutions because both sides of the political spectrum actually want illegal aliens to continue doing what they’ve always been allowed to do.

♦ *Year one – Stop open wire money transfers (use same process we used for Cuban remittances). Require U.S. Treasury compliance form (SS and DL#) attached and accompanying every electronic fund transaction outgoing to Mexico and South America.

♦ *Year two – build a 15′ double chain link fence across the entire Southern border, filled with sand between both fences just like North and South Korea use. CCTV and Drone Monitored by DHS and Border Patrol.

♦ *Year three – Put Federal DHS immigration offices, INS, (or trailers – coordinate with FEMA based on demographics) in every State DOT office. Give illegal aliens 1 year to apply for green cards.

♦ *Year Four – require every business, corporation, sole proprietorship, etc. to have an employment compliance officer (can be a title added to HR person). Every compliance officer will be required to sign an annual form verifying employment eligibility for every employee in the company. Annual social security check (card check system) – Penalty for infraction:

• $100,000 fine per employee
• 1 year jail term for company owner, board of directors, and/or compliance officer.

At the beginning of year 4 you will see less than 25% of illegals remaining in the U.S. At the beginning of year #5 you will see almost negligible amounts of illegal aliens remaining. (link)

Embargoing the Western Union remittance payment fees, or establishing a transmission fee specifically to Mexico transfers, immediately puts pressure on the Mexican government who benefit economically from inbound wire transfers.

This is NOT a new process or new procedure.  Similar money services transfer laws have been in place for years with regard to Cuba.  Any wired monetary transfer into Cuba required a Cuban Remittance Certificate filled out by the sender and retained by the originating financial entity.   There are also strict rules on the amount of money that could be transferred to Cuba, so we already have a well established process in place to carry out such a proposal.

It only takes political will to make it happen; and the evidenced economic dependency that Mexico now has on U.S. remittances, to retain their tenuous economy, provides us the leverage we need to get them to pay for the border wall.

Donald Trump Immigration Reform

We have finally found a candidate proposing EXACTLY what we previously shared would be needed. Trump’s immigration proposal is the FIRST we have ever noted which matches our prior research 100%

    There is a place where you can wire money to Mexico…it is a tiny little establishment. I had to wire some money to my daughter at college cause she needed it instantly. I had never done that before. While I was there all these Mexicans were going in and out in and out like a revolving door. Finally I asked the lady about it and she told me they go work or they get welfare and the keep a small % of it and the wire the majority of it home. They will stay here for 3 months, camping out along the river, spending little money then go home and live like a King the rest of the year.

  5. SD, keep in mind that oil has fallen during the timeframe from last year as well. Just guessing it was about $100/barrel last year ($155 at its high point) at this time and now heading into the twenties. So, while it looks like the water may have gone up, the bridge actually came down.

    “Give illegal aliens 1 year to apply for green cards.”

    Well, no. Green cards are a permit to continue to live and work in the US. People who came here illegally should not receive preferential treatment over the large population of people around the world who are waiting patiently for they’re turn to enter his country legally. They must come first and the only equitable way for that to happen is for people working here illegally to return home . . . and get it line. Further, anyone who came here illegally should be forever denied the opportunity to become American citizens. The people around the world waiting patiently to be allowed to come here to work are the kind of people we want to be citizens of our country. People who came here illegally, people who took their place in line, people who stole other people’s identities, not so much . . .

    • I think the illegals that have been here – some for decades – and have proven themselves to be good, honest, hard working people and who may even own homes should be given the first crack at citizenship. We are not taking a chance with them. HOWEVER….this should be done from their own countries. They have to go home and apply as a former illegal in good standing which is fair and good in my opinion. If we don’t do that then we punish and put in the back of the line the type of immigrants this country wants. Also, if we don’t then there is no incentive for these illegals to work with immigration policy. The way this is going to work is to have a policy where the good ones turn themselves in and register and we go after everyone else and either deny them entry forever or put non-criminals at the back of the line. Half of the 11 million illegals would turn themselves in and we won’t have to use resources chasing them down if we are smart about this. If we are reactionary about this it will be an expensive mess.


  7. archer52 says:

    It’s been common knowledge the remittances have been in the billions. Now you have to understand how they do that. They go on welfare, get food stamps, take advantage of every program, and the money they save by using our tax money is sent back. You want to stop that, stop the programs. (I know broken record time, but it is really that simple)

    As for the seizure. Good luck. I would be against it. Because if you allow a President to seize property (cash) because he doesn’t like something, how long before the next President seizes money you want to save, or hide, or buy a gun with or whatever.

    There are smarter ways to get the job done.

    … as a producer for WKRC Cincinnati, Doerr worked for anchor Nick Clooney (actor George Clooney’s father), an Ohio native who had just returned from anchoring at KNBC Los Angeles. The veteran anchor made a lasting impression. One night before the news broadcast, a staffer referred to viewers as Joe and Mary Six-Pack, angering Clooney.

    He said viewers are people who invite us into their homes, Doerr recalls. They plumb, they build, they hammer, they work for a living, and how dare we talk down to them. It was an incredible lesson: Always respect your viewer.

    Imperialism: Bankers, Drug Wars and Genocide. Mexico’s Descent into Inferno
    Mexico’s Descent in the Inferno
    By Prof. James Petras
    Global Research, July 25, 2015
    Global Research 19 May 2011
    n May 2011, Mexican investigators uncovered another mass clandestine grave with dozens of mutilated corpses; bringing the total number of victims to 40,000 killed since 2006 when the Calderon regime announced its “war on drug traffickers”. Backed by advisers, agents and arms, the White House has been the principal promotor of a ‘war’ that has totally decimated Mexico ’s society and economy.

    If Washington has been the driving force for the regime’s war, Wall Street banks have been the main instruments ensuring the profits of the drug cartels. Every major US bank has been deeply involved in laundering hundreds of billions of dollars in drug profits, for the better part of the past decade.

    Mexico ’s descent into this inferno has been engineered by the leading US financial and political institutions, each supporting ‘one side or the other’ in the bloody “total war” which spares no one, no place and no moment in time. While the Pentagon arms the Mexican government and the US Drug Enforcement Agency enforces the “military solution”, the biggest US banks receive, launder and transfer hundreds of billions of dollars to the drug lords’ accounts, who then buy modern arms, pay private armies of assassins and corrupt untold numbers of political and law enforcement officials on both sides of the border.

      I will probably get monitored by the NSA for this but… Robert Rubin, Clinton’s Secretary of the Treasury, was behind both the fall of the Mexican peso in 1994 and its rescue at OUR expense, and the fall of the emerging markets funds investing in MX during that time, which led to the crisis.

      Mexico owed A LOT of money to the big banks in NY: Chemical, Manufacturer’s Hanover, Chase, etc, for the loans taken out the finance its oil exploration. MX was not paying its bills, and everyone knew that the Ruling Families of MX owned PEMEX and every other corp in MX. So Rubin went to his buddies at those banks with an idea…Let’s push the “emerging markets” in mutual funds, telling them that there’s an emerging middle class in MX, and make “emerging markets funds” to invest in middle class small businesses, which were in reality, owned by the Ruling Families as shell companies.

      So, the mutual funds did so, and put billions of US investors’ dollars into those funds, but it was all a ruse to get US dollars into the hands of the Ruling Families, who would then use those dollars to pay bank the loans to the US banks. Shell game complete. Suckered US investors paid back the MX loans to the US banks.

      Donald Colosio, somewhat of an outsider running for President of MX, got wind of this and realized what was going on, and ran against it. He was assassinated shortly thereafter. I leave you to come to your own conclusion about that. this created a crisis in the peso, wherein Rubin went to Clinton and begged a $50 BILLION bail out the MX government (Ruling Families) by US taxpayers, to stabilize the peso. And we paid it. Never to be repaid. (although I do not believe this a completely accurate account of what happened)

      MX has been playing us for a long time. I used to live there, and the people are sweet, but the government is completely corrupt. And Rubin is the Prince of Darkness, the originator of the demise of Glass-Steagall, so Goldman (his alma mater, so to speak) could securitize the world, get derivatives insurance from AIG, and we could bail them out more than once, as taxpayers, after 2008.

      Please, Mr. Trump, stop the fraud. NOW.

It would also have a chip like a bank card so it can never be forged. The US ID would be issued only to US citizens and would need to be produced in order to vote. Any citizen having any interface with any local, State or Federal government agency for any monetary/tax transaction would have to show their ID. Mexico has this requirement as do many other countries.

If fading memory serves me correctly the remittances made up some 20% of the Mex economy. Any wonder why the Mex government under Fox was printing and distributing free ‘Illegaly Entering the US for Dummies’ pamphlets?
    We had ‘wire your pesos home’ services working in NOLA in the early 90s, quiet advertisements in supermarkets in Spanish that were unknown except the initiated. During Katrina the Usual Suspects had a growth industry in waiting outside of places that had cash wiring on FRiday night to rob Los Trabajos (sp?).

    Comparing the raw cash transfers from illegals to PEMEX revenues is apples and oranges. Transfers are pure profit when it hits the street in the form of pesos in a Mexican’s pocket. Conversely, PEMEX revenue comes with costs. Revenue isn’t profit. In this case we’re comparing $24.8 billion profit to $2.34 billion at a generous 10% profit (not likely with a govt entity). Now, one could argue that much of the cost borne by PEMEX is flowing back into the Mexican economy. Some yes, but it is certainly minuscule compared to the pure profit flowing through Western Union. Go Trump! Hoorah treepers!

      Yes, I own a small working interest in TX, and we pay for the costs to maintain the fields, do upgrades, fix blowouts, etc. IT IS EXPENSIVE. So the NET revenue from those fields is far less than the amount quoted above. I know, and the fall in oil price is devastating to producers. MX is relying on those remittances FAR MORE that we can imagine. Therefore, any stem in the flow of same is GREAT bargaining leverage on MX, for sure!

    Beside the wall along the southern frontier with Mexico, we need air survelliance using drones and fighter aircraft. The Mexican cartels also move tons of dope right through the US boarder check points because certain check points the volume of traffic (TJ, El Paso, Laredo) is unbelievably high. The US, Canadian, and MExican governments are in the planning stages for a Trans-American Transportation Corridor which will run from The Pacific port city of Lazaro Cardenez across Mexico to Texas and all the way to Canada. It’s planned as an eight lane highway with a rail line down the center of the corridor. It’s a grand NWO idea that in some ways makes sense except that under NAFTA the trade between the US and Canada/Mexico is not level nor duty free. Trump needs to spend the most of his time on trade issues. He needs a general as a VP to focus on national security. The new Secretary of State will have to gut the State Department of the dead weight “we are the world” liberals, re populate it with conservative America ” Firsters” and nominate ambassadors that will promote US interests and partnering with foreign governments. The entire US aid program and UN relationship needs a complete rework. I hope Trump can put together a Cabinet of world class executives with a goal of cutting the waste, fraud and dead heads out of the Departments and sun setting the DOE and the EPA for starters.

      AMEN to all that!! That corridor is built at US expense, but used without charge to MX trucks, and no tolls, anything that would reimburse us, as I understand it. Perry was all for this.

    The US has a huge national health issue with the millions addicted to hard drugs. If the flow of drugs across the border is stopped…dump the DEA they are part of the problem, and using ICE and the Border Patrol effectively, we are going to have to deal with the home grown meth labs and getting addicts treatment. Then there’s the Obamacare disaster….Trump needs divine guidance to pick a head of DHSS. DHS needs to be gutted and national security be put back in the hands of the Pentagon. So much to do and so little time. First we elect Trump and then we can get to work to Make America Great Again.


  35. When trump says incompetent, he should also include corruption with that statement.
    A couple of years ago in Arizona, the state police had a very embarrassing incident.
    One of their officers was an illegal alien.
    Somebody grab hold of this info, and make sure it see’s the light of Trump.

    Simple math here. If there are 10,000,000 illegal aliens working in this country, and each is making 10,000 a year and not paying any taxes, that is 15,000,000,000, yes 15 billion dollars every year being lost in social security funds alone. Make no mistake, this has to be a pure CASH system.

    The racket seems so massive it defies reason. For this to happen the payola under the tables must be so massive for this to go on that everyone up and down the system would have to be on the take.

    A 5% tax on remittances to Mexico would pay for a very nice wall with enough left over to fund a huge increase in the border patrol budget.

    The US politicians response to protection of our borders is truly bizarre… Unless they are deliberately not working in the best interests of the USA.

    Homeland UNsecurity removed hundreds of border patrol agents from the Mexican Border, derailed the physical border fence authorized by Congress in 2006 replacing it with a ‘virtual fence’ Then when the ‘virtual fence proved to be a complete disaster, canceled the Border Fence Project completely in January 2010.

    In March 2010, Napolitano justified to lawmakers a 30 percent budget reduction for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, while also removing agents on the southern border and sending them to the Canadian border. In June and July of 2011 three of the four border states had their National Guard troops that were doing the actual patrolling sent overseas. Worse while civilian Minutemen patrols kept watch and reported illegal border crossers, the U.S. Border Patrol responded by and telling the CORRUPT Mexican government where the Minutemen were patrolling to help facilitate drug and illegals traffic!

    In an increasingly bizarre world Napolitano stands by the controversial Department of Homeland Security report which lists returning veterans among terrorist risks to the U.S along with ordinary American patriots.
    “…“Rightwing extremism,” the report said… goes beyond religious and racial hate groups and extends to “those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.”
    “It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,” said the report, which also listed gun owners and veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as potential risks….”

    Oh and to add icing to the cake travelers from Saudi Arabia, the country that spawned the 9/11 terrorists, get most trusted traveler status allowing them to by-pass the indigenties from TSA that Americans must suffer.


    • Gail Combs says:


      In 2011 out of one side of her mouth Janet Napolitano was stating: ” The terrorist threat to the U.S. homeland has continued to “evolve” and may now “be at its most heightened state” since the September 11, 2001” Out of the other side of her mouth she is busy assuring Americans that the southern border is “more secure than ever”. So secure in fact that Homeland Security is going to DECREASE the southern border patrol by “several hundred agents.”
      “Meanwhile State and local law enforcement officers are increasingly needed to combat terror, and the focus must be on aiding law enforcement to help them secure communities, she said.”</i. (wwwDOT)


      Administration Will Cut Border Patrol Deployed on U.S-Mexico Border – September 24, 2009
      “Even though the Border Patrol now reports that almost 1,300 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border is not under effective control, and the Department of Justice says that vast stretches of the border are “easily breached,” and the Government Accountability Office has revealed that three persons “linked to terrorism” and 530 aliens from “special interest countries” were intercepted at Border Patrol checkpoints last year, the administration is nonetheless now planning to decrease the number of Border Patrol agents deployed on the U.S.-Mexico border….

      Local Officials: Border Crime On The Rise – January 6, 2011 PINAL COUNTY, Ariz.
      “Authorities in Pinal County dispute the Federal Government’s assertion that the Arizona border with Mexico is more secure than ever…. Tim Gaffney said that Director of Homeland Security Janet Napaolitano’s statements that crimes related to immigration and drug smuggling issues are down is just not true.The numbers county officials provided in the release seem to back up Gaffney’s stance. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said it has seen a “dramatic” increase in vehicle pursuits, drug seizures and calls to U.S. Border Patrol agents to help deal with illegal immigrants.”

      It doesn’t take much to see that Janet Napolitano is lying through her teeth about our Mexican border security.

      To top it off Hernández wrote a book about the drug cartels. What make Los Señores del Narco different was linking the Sinaloa cartel, the biggest criminal organisation in the world – to the leadership of the Mexico.

      January 03, 2011 – Are Legalized Civilian Militia Groups the Answer to Arizona’s Border Security Problems?
      Special Guest: Arizona State Rep.-elect Jack Harper

      …. Jack, in 2007, you passed legislation to create a state-sanctioned militia here in Arizona. The then-governor, Napolitano, vetoed it….

       <b>HARPER:</b> Well, you might have heard that <b>three of the four border states are losing their National Guard troops now.</b> And Arizona is supposed to lose the federally funded National Guard troops in June or July.

      In 2006 when the amnesty for illegals was granted by Bush, in return Americans were promised a border fence. So what the heck happened to our fence???

      “…To his right stands a steel wall, 20 feet high and reinforced by cement-filled steel piping. To his left another tall fence of steel mesh. Ten yards beyond, a shorter cyclone fence is topped with jagged concertina wire….

      “This wall works,” says Mr. Bernacke. “A lot of people have the misconception that it is a waste of time and money, but the numbers of apprehensions show that it works.”

      The triple-and double-layered fence here in Yuma is the kind of barrier that US lawmakers – and most Americans – imagined when the Secure Fence Act was enacted in 2006.

      The law instructed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to secure about one-third of the 1,950-mile border between US and Mexico with 700 miles of double-layered fencing – and additionally through cameras, motion sensors, and other types of barriers – by the end of the year to stem illegal immigration.

      Bankrolled by a separate $1.2 billion homeland security bill, the Secure Fence Act would, President Bush said in 2006, “make our borders more secure.”

      However a good solid barrier is not what was built. Instead we got a few miles of ‘virtual fence’ and no one to man it.

      Congress mandated a real fence with the Secure fence Act of 2006.  The Obama administration changed 1,300 miles to a virtual fence and then cancelled that half way effort.
      Actually it wasn’t even half way and the ‘virtual fence’ was not functional’
      …Ms. Napolitano attempts to justify to lawmakers a 30 percent budget reduction for U.S. Customs and Border Protection…March 17, 2010
      “…To date, the U.S. government, through the Secure Border Initiative, has paid Boeing Co. more than $1 billion to build less than 700 miles of barriers between ports of entry, and a costly but flawed system of radar towers, ground sensors and cameras known as SBInet, a $4 billion project that appears to be in jeopardy. …”

      <a href=”>Napolitano Cancels Virtual Border Fence Project..1/14/2011

      “…Signaling a major shift from her predecessor, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Tuesday said she will spend $50 million of stimulus funds originally intended to build a “virtual fence” along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border on other more proven and cost-effective security technology…”

        Hopefully by laying it all out it helps people see the immigration problem wasn’t due to incompetance but due to specific steps that not only gives the illegal imigrant higher status than the American citizen but makes the ordinary American citizen and not terrorists the targeted enemy of the US government.

        Really makes you wonder who was actually behind 9/11 doesn’t it?

    I like the plan (except for the green card) but I would change years to months or quarters. Why give them four years to figure a way around the system. ‘They’ being: the illegals; the legislature; and the businesses.
