Donald Trump used to say that he’d make Mexico pay for the wall, but apparently that isn’t eccentric enough.
What he’s going to do now is turn Mexico into the wall.
Mexico has deployed 6,000 members of its National Guard on its border with Guatemala in an attempt to stem the flow of migrants heading to the US.
Mexico’s Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard is in Washington trying to stop the US from placing trade tariffs on Mexican goods over illegal migration.
US President Donald Trump has vowed to enact import duties of 5% on Monday if no agreement is reached.
On Wednesday, he said “not nearly enough” progress was being made.
After the latest talks on Thursday, Mr Ebrard said he was “an optimistic man.”
He said forces would be stationed on Mexico’s southern border with Guatemala to prevent migrants entering the country.
“We have explained that there are 6,000 men and that they will be deployed there,” he said, adding that talks would continue Friday.
Mexico is trying to keep legitimate asylum seekers from reaching their target, which puts these people in danger.
How is this okay? If these are legitimate asylum seekers, they shouldn’t have to deal with random countries putting roadblocks between them and their freedom.
If they’re not legitimate asylum seekers, then why are we even taking them in when they show up at our borders?
It’s a very weird situation.
“Mexico, stop these people from coming into my country!”
“Because they’re not legitimate asylum seekers.”
“Then why are you taking them in?”
It sounds ridiculous, but that’s how it is. This is your country on
You can’t build a wall.
You can’t defend your border.
You can’t kick the invaders out.
You have to take them all in.
Unless you ask Mexico to stop them for you.
