Once again, the American people are being thrust into a conversation about the border between the U.S. and Mexico, but, this time, it isn’t the President who’s instigated it.
During the election of 2016, President Trump was adamant that our southern border would be a top priority during his first term. It was obvious to Trump, and to Americans as a whole, that the way in which our immigration system was operating wouldn’t be able to last for much longer. There was simply for too much leniency, and the criminal elements of Mexico and beyond were taking full advantage of this.
Not only have we been inundated with undocumented workers in America, (who skew the tax balances of the nation), but drug cartels and South American gangs have long been exploiting the lax atmosphere on the border.
Trump’s successful election could very well be considered a referendum on this very subject, as the American people chose him and him alone to lead us forward into a world where America comes first. Of course, the ridiculous “resistance” of the radical left has other ideas – spending inordinate amounts of time and resources attempting to stymy the President’s plan.
Now, as Trump prepares to greet nearly 2,000 angry Honduran migrants at the Mexico-U.S. border with the might of the American military, our amigos down yonder would like to have a word.
The Mexican ambassador to the US said Tuesday that President Donald Trump’s apparent call for troops to guard the US-Mexico border is an unwelcome one.
“It’s certainly not something that the Mexican government welcomes, but as soon as we have further clarification, we can expect to have a better idea of where we are,” Ambassador Ger-nimo Guti-rrez said in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.
The Mexican ambassador stressed that his government is still trying to clarify what exactly Trump meant.
Guti-rrez made his comments in response to Trump’s claim earlier on Tuesday that he would have the US military guard the nation’s southern border until his proposed wall is built. Although Trump wasn’t specific about what the troops’ scope and authority would be, both Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush oversaw temporary deployments of National Guard troops to the border during their tenures.
To that, we must ask: Do the letters T.S. mean anything to y’all?
If we would like to place our military on our side of the border, there is very, very little that anyone can really say about it. After all, that’s what sovereignty is all about, isn’t it? Especially in a nation as freedom-centric as the U.S. of A.
Now, if Mexico would like to avoid this situation, for whatever reason, all they will have to do is address the mob mentality of these Honduran migrants before they force the hand of the President. If not, things could get muy caliente by the week’s end.
