AMLO Drops the Hammer on African Migrants in Mexico…

I am thankful every day that we have a businessman in the White House who brilliantly understands how to leverage U.S. economic power to achieve national security objectives.

While remaining under the threat of punishing U.S. tariffs, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez-Obrador (aka AMLO) is strictly enforcing migrant blockades to stop the unlawful travel of Central American migrants to the U.S. border.

(Via AP) […] Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard said he believes Mexico’s strategy of cracking down on illegal migration with a National Guard deployment, investment in Central America and allowing the U.S. to make more asylum seekers wait in Mexico is enough to avert President Donald Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on all Mexican imports.

Ebrard is scheduled to meet with U.S. officials Tuesday at the White House to review the progress.

Mexican President Andres Manuel López Obrador, a leftist who took office Dec. 1 promising better treatment of migrants, instead has embraced the fight against migrant smuggling.

In recent weeks, he has seldom mentioned the U.S. pressure and depicts the crackdown on migrants as a struggle to defend Mexican laws. His administration has taken a tough line against hundreds of African migrants waiting in the southern city of Tapachula for transit visas that Mexico no longer hands out.

“We will not budge,” he said after the Africans protested, “because the recent events in Tapachula aim to make Mexico yield and oblige us to give out certificates so migrants can get into the United States. We cannot do that. It isn’t our job.”

He said migrant caravans once tolerated by Mexico were the work of human traffickers, and effectively ended them.

“All of these people who traffic with migrants’ needs for jobs, safety and welfare, they are committing a crime and they will be punished,” López Obrador said last week. “We are already doing this in Mexico, without violating human rights. We are ensuring there isn’t anarchy, disorder.”

Migrant-rights activists say López Obrador is simply dressing up the fact that he yielded to Trump’s pressure tactics.

[…] Mexico has raided freight trains that migrants ride north, and pulled thousands off buses and out of the freight compartments of trucks. The government has warned bus and taxi drivers they could lose their permits if they transport migrants. (read more)

Hopefully, with continued strategic policy success, we will soon reach a point where American voters will only accept business leaders as presidential candidates.

…”Complicated business folks… Complicated business”….

    You know at least us Canucks aren’t sneaking across your northern border en-mass, even if some of us wish we could sometimes!

      At least you’d be able to assimilate. And assimilation is one of the biggest problems.

      The culture of a people (the collective ideals, the beliefs, the values, etc) forms the basis of laws and the enforcement and obedience of laws. The culture of a people shared helps strangers to identify with one another and to form relationships. I could go on and on.

      Assimilation is the antidote to cultural chaos and the destruction of a culture which is successful and dare I say superior to so many others.

    • I disagree. Canada’s Prime Minister (The Next Election Can’t Come Too Soon) Trudeau got rid of the visa requirement for Mexicans to get into Canada. And most of the Canadian border is largely unguarded. Is anyone checking the northern border since now all you need a airplane trip into Canada and then once landed, disappear south?

      You would be welcomed. The Canadians assimilate and also work. They don’t come here to live off us like these others. The “migrants” pay from $30,000 to $50,000 so they can sneak in here and claim they are destitute and need welfare.

      Sometime I feel like sneaking into Canada to get away from all the illegals who are bleeding us dry here.

    Yes, the US voter should only vote for genius businessmen…maybe we should reconsider the 22nd Amendment.

    All is fair in love and war.

    May God bless President Donald John Trump.

      There are is one way to save our country over the short term:
      Repeal the 22nd Amendment

      Over the longer term, apply the 22nd Amendment to all legislators.

      And for all time, enforce the oath of office for all in government and no more “impossible to fire” status for any of them.

      Mexicans don’t like Africans. Not only in Mexico but also right here in the US.
      Yes it’s an ethnic thing, I believe the left calls it racism.

      This what a leftist troll sent me yesterday, when I agreed with him,
      We should have stayed out of Vietnam and Iraq.

      “Trump has started an economic war with China with the intention of preventing her from becoming the dominant world power. the excuse used is that the war is about trade.
      Trump has over one thousand sanctions against a slew of nations where the dollar is used as the weapon and the dollar is losing.
      Trump is engaged in the overthrow of the elected government in Venezuela, in the Yemeni war and is stocking a full fledged war with Iran.
      So Trump is a war monger. The point of my comment was that in general We have sought wars around the world and not simply “defended’ America.”

      I told him we ‘deplorables’ are not the resistance, we are the Americans who will defend our Constitutional Republic to remain as it was intended. And we support our President because he is against sending our troops into harms way, unless it poses an immediate danger to our shores.
      I say remember 1968, when rich kids who were protected from the draft, with college deferments, were rioting against a war they didn’t have to fight and ‘spit’ at American boys who were forced to fight, a war started by the left.
      Come to think of it, the left and the neocons have started every war in my memory,
      going back to the civil war.
      It is a good thing we care about the lives of our leftist Americans,
      They would have murdered each other out of existence,
      And they just keep on trying.

    Interesting that AMLO’s belief that Mexicans have a right to free emigration to the US does not extend to Africans.

    Somehow, there seem to be a few inherent contradictions in the globalist mindset.

      Mexicans have been convinced that the southern U.S. is ‘their land’, so they feel justified.

      As for the passage of Africans (or anyone for that matter), ethnicity doesn’t matter. Its a business… and they need to pay the toll.

      Problem is that our VSG is making their business unprofitable and preventing delivery into the U.S.

      From what I have read over the years, Mexicans do not want non-Mexicans in their country and will brutally push back against any attempt the interlopers make to establish themselves.

      Mmmm Popcorn!!

    “Pregnant women face special danger waiting in Mexico because places where migrants wait to enter the U.S. often don’t have access to regular meals, clean water, and medical care.”
    Whaaah. Gee. Isn’t that what The Mouth said about our U.S. facilities for these same people? They had to drink out of the toilet.
    “”As their deliveries near, many migrant women aren’t sure whether they’ll have access to a hospital and if they will need surgery, Villa said. They are worried about their child being born in Mexico instead of the U.S. and what that might mean for their prospects of eventually entering the U.S., she said.”
    Cry me a river. I bet they will try every day to get into the USA, like a WHAC-A-MOLE.
    +“It’s a very, very difficult group of people that needs a lot of help, and they don’t get enough,” she said.”
    Yeah, we know they are difficult and that they need a lot of help. That’s why we’ll pass on them. We have people here already who need our help. REAL citizens, not illegal invaders.
    Notice how all the pix were of women and children. Where are all the men?

    Mexican Consulates have been printing and distributing pamphlets instructing its citizens on how to illegally enter the US and use our laws against efforts to deport them. Stefan Molyneux reads a translation of that pamphlet, with accompanying pictures from it:

      Thank you Sundance. I live in Maine so the African migrants are a real problem here. They are getting housing before needy Maine citizens. It is really disgusting.

      They are not poor. One said he paid $8,000, traveled through many countries and then got to Mexico expecting he would be able to enter the USA as he pleased. Those who are rioting are very angry because they wasted their money.

    The illegal alien came to drop an anchor baby for the American taxpayer to support. No. Illegal aliens have no constitutional right to have a baby on American soil nor should they be a charge on our treasury.

    Per the AP tweet above, How delightful the woman’s child will have dual citizenship. Mexican and, whatever country she came from. Her child will be able to choose which one to live in later in life.
