Soaring levels of drug-related violence made 2017 Mexico’s most murderous year on record, according to government statistics released Sunday.
We provide $320,000,000 a year to aid Mexico, but Mexico blames America for not doing enough, citing the American appetite for cocaine and other drugs that has fueled the drug trade in Mexico and created the cartels.
Mexico’s leaders speak with a forked tongue. It has proven to be a less than cooperative partner in the war on drugs. The Mexican cops can’t be trusted, it’s just a reflection of their society. The army is almost as corrupt, but they have less opportunity to be bribed, otherwise they would be as bad as the cops. Extraditions, arrest warrants and raids are routinely blocked by Mexican authorities. Air surveillance over Mexico and other intelligence gathering missions are similarly denied by Mexican authorities. We provide them with vehicles, uniforms, weapons, training and hundreds of millions of tax dollars. But, America is not doing enough?
Between Mexico’s notorious unclean drinking water, E.coli in food, poor sanitation, gross pollution, crime and overall anti-American attitudes, why would any American citizen want to vacation in Mexico? And why would we want to bring that terrible stuff to our country? For that answer you would you would have to ask a democrat, because my party doesn’t want any of it.
I agree with Mexico that the Americans who do drugs, and there are way too many, are the cause of much of this mayhem and murder and the corruption and exploitation in government and law enforcement. Where there are large sums of ill gotten cash to be had we can expect crime and corruption to follow.
Having said that Mexico has been in the exploitation of America game for many decades. The support you sited is only part of what America gives to Mexico. America provides healthcare, schooling, job opportunities, and prison costs. If the Dems get their way, free college and a living wage will be added in the mix. Instead of taking care of their own citizens Mexico exploits America…it saves the Mexican government a pile of money. Mexicans who work here also send a lot of what they earn to Mexico rather than putting it back into our economy.
We need to build the wall, enforce the law, and reform the immigration system to reflect American needs as well as American values. Yes, America welcomes those who wish to come here but we also have the right to draw the line at illegal, exploitative entry and we also have the right to expect assimilation and respect for the rule of law. We welcome those who have a strong desire to achieve and contribute. We reject those who only wish to use America. It’s time we put the responsibility for the general welfare of non-citizens where it belongs…time for Mexico (and other countries) to take care of their citizens.
So is Chicago. So is San Francisco. Those “liberal” citizens in SF shit on murdered Kathryn Steinle and her family. Lippy must be proud.
Isn’t about time for foreign policy wankers in the State Department to tell the Mexican government to go f— themselves?
Yes, yes it is.
