Financial Times: US Gives Mexico $75M Aid for an Anti-Immigrant Wall


#1

Amid talk of Donald Trump’s plans to build a border wall between the United States and Mexico, Mexico itself has an invisible wall along its southern border with Central America as migrants head north.

A Financial Times story details Mexico’s role in stopping people from getting into its country from Guatemala. A reported 175,000 Central Americans were deported from Mexico in 2015 (a 68 percent jump from 2014), and so far in 2016 that number is approaching 100,000.

The Times claims the U.S. is sending Mexico $75 million in the form of equipment and training to help shore up its southern border. Ultimately, some of the Central American migrants wind up at America’s southern doorstep. Stopping them from entering Mexico is the first line of defense.

And Obuttboy will cliam like his phony {“I have deported more illegals than any POTUS in history” FACTUALLY not true…} that the wall was His or Hitlery idea all along…

Who deported the most?

Dunno, but what we do know is that under Obama our illegal population how swelled…


#5

Both can be simultaneously true. We had TONS of them coming over during Bush and Clinton’s administrations, and they were barely deporting them at all. Obama deported more… just not as many as continued to come over. So we still have a net increase.

Basically, Obama was better than Bush and Clinton on the issue. But that still wasn’t good enough. Or even good at all.

Not exactly true but kind of close. (My cousin was a in the border patrol). What was happening was that we were catching a LOT of them. Then pretty quickly we were transporting them back to the border. Then they were coming back across the border. If everything went smoothly they would sometimes catch the same people twice in one week. It was basically done on the theory that sooner or later they will miss catching me & I will be IN.
.
True funny story: My cousin is a tall blond guy. After catching someone they would often leave him with those they caught while the other would go off looking for more. My cousin pretended to not speak Spanish, but he did. Often they would talk about the new plans on coming back while he sat there playing dumb.

What’s an “invisible wall”?

I could be wrong, but I think that catching them at the border doesn’t count as a deportation. Though I don’t actually know if that’s correct. I think a deportation requires an administrative process.
