What’s the Spanish word for “irony”?
Donald Trump is slammed as a “racist” for wanting to control the U.S./Mexican border, but the same people who criticize him are usually ignorant about how much control Mexico wants over who enters their country.
For example, if you were to illegally immigrate to Mexico, you certainly wouldn’t be able to sign up for welfare, Medicaid and free education for your children, like aliens can do in the U.S. Quite the opposite: You’d be thrown in jail and swiftly deported.
The thing is, Mexico has a “southern border” too, and Mexican authorities are far more concerned about how secure it is than their American Democrat counterparts:
Mexico’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs is concerned about an influx of immigrants into the country from African and Asian countries, according to a report Thursday in El Universal.
“Many of them will have to return to their home countries,” Socorro Flores, undersecretary of Latin America and the Caribbean for the Mexican Foreign Ministry, said to El Universal.
Central America has recently been dealing with an influx of immigrants from abroad. It was recently reported that Guatemala has caught 56 times more African immigrants in 2016 than they did in all of 2015. These immigrants frequently have the goal of heading to the United States and seeking asylum.
Exactly. While it is amusing to watch Mexico struggle to control its border while chastising Americans who want to do the same thing, let’s hope that Mexican authorities are successful, if only to stop even more would-be immigrants from entering the U.S.
