Now Mexico wants to build a wall…to stop ratbags from Central America

On my, I wonder what the liberal elite tosspots are going to say about this hypocrisy from Mexico.

Apparently when it comes to keeping illegal immigrants out of its own country, Mexico is taking a page from Donald Trump’s playbook and building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants along its southern border with Central America.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto may resent Trump’s plan, but according to the UK Daily Mail, many Mexicans praise the idea of a southern border wall. They are desperate to keep out “hordes” of Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans who are fleeing violence in their own countries and are on their way to the United States — and then simply deported back to Mexico rather than to their home countries by the U.S. “Trump’s idea of a border wall is a good one but it should be on the southern border with Central America in order to stop the flow of Central Americans from entering both countries,” the board of the El Mañana paper wrote in July.

El Mañana also called for proper immigration checkpoints on the southern border, and criticized Hillary Clinton for failing to deal with the issue of border security.

The UN estimates 400,000 Central Americans cross illegally into Mexico each year. As many as half are fleeing violence and gangs in their home countries yet most immigrants are eventually deported back home. Mexico deported 175,000 Central Americans last year – a 68 per cent increase from 2014. “Many of these migrants when they are unable to find an honest way of life turn to robberies, kidnappings, extortion, and in the worst cases join the ranks of organized crime,” El Mañana‘s piece claimed. Migrants committing crimes? Shocking!

‘Mexico has become a wall for migrants,’ said Sister Magdalena Silva, coordinator of Cafemin, a privately run shelter for refugees in Mexico City. “The current policy is to arrest migrants to stop them from getting to the US border.”

So Mexico has concluded that a wall is the answer to border security. What an original concept.

Walls work. Look at the huge drop off in suicide bombings in Israel since they built a wall. The Berlin Wall lasted from 1961 until 1989 and was finally toppled not by the West but by the fall of communism.

So while Hillary and her supporters are outraged over Donald trump wanting to build a wall, the Mexicans have realised it is the only way to control unwanted migration.

    Border controls work and most government’s around the world realise this. Europe has learned the hard way about the downside of ‘open borders’.

      Note Hilliary called for the abolition of US borders to an adoring MSM right before the bombings. She has timing like Angry it seems.

    I see they’ve had to build a seven meter high-security fence around the Oktoberfest beer festival headquarters in Berlin, and all entrants are being subjected to metal detector x-rays, pat downs and no backpack rules. I wonder why?

    I think Mexico’s objection was to having to pay for a wall. The wall isn’t for Mexicans anyway: current calculation is that net Mexican (as opposed to passer-through) migration into the US is almost nil or may even have reversed.

    Mexico’s other objection to Trump’s wall is that when the US expels illegal entrants from other nations, it’s back into Mexico. So if you really want a wall- then it needs to be on the other side of Mexico. Not least because millions of American families rely on Mexican domestic workers and have become quite fond of them. Finally there are millions of American anchor children of illegal Mexican parents. These kids are US citizens by birth so to expel their illegal parents you’d need to expel the US citizen child or separate them from their family, creating future compensation liabilities into the trillions. In this context, Mexico’s version makes a lot more sense especially if Donald pays for it!
