In response to President Trump's decision to send National Guard troops to the border, the Mexican Senate convened and showed their true colors. They seem to think that America trying to protect her borders is an “offense” against Mexico!?!?!?
Reports state from El Universal:
“Despite everything that is at stake in the relationship between our two countries, the way in which President Donald Trump has behaved is, for the Mexican people, unacceptable and intolerable.
The resolution demands that President Trump respect the people of Mexico, and notes the Senate “condemns the unfounded and offensive expressions about Mexico and Mexicans and the treatment that is needed for a relationship between neighboring countries, partners, and allies.”
Among their “solutions” are the ideas to stop helping the US with Cartels crossing the border, and to stop helping deal with illegal immigrants from crossing the border. Are they serious?
If the Mexican government had truly been helping with these aspects anyway, there would not be a need to send the National Guard down there. And if we do have the national guard on the border…It WILL reduce the number of illegal crossings and drugs crossings.
How can we know this for sure? Because when Presidents Bush and Obama did the exact same thing, border crossings and drug traffic went down. It works, we know it works, and here's the kicker…mexico knows it works too…And that's why they don't want it.
