Mexico and Guatemala signed a deal to make it easier for Latin Americans, many quite young and lacking proper documents, to pass through Mexico and enter the United States.
In other words, our problem with illegal immigration just got worse, thanks to the meddling of Mexico.
WorldNetDaily reported, “Mexico and Guatemala have reached an agreement that is intended to make it easier and safer for Central Americans, including unaccompanied minors, to enter the United States illegally…. The agreement apparently does not recognize that the result of such trips – entry into the United States – remains illegal.”
Obviously, if Mexico really wanted to help the people of Guatemala, etc., Mexico would intervene at the source, not after families have been split up and little children have been endangered and exploited.
Pundits remain divided on why President Obama has allowed this unnecessary crisis to explode and continue. He seems to want the illegal immigration. He seems to want the atmosphere of crisis. Probably he hopes to turn the crisis into support for an amnesty program. A liberal columnist warned on Saturday that Obama wants crisis “to be a big problem.”
Obama may be surprised by the reaction of his country. Almost immediately people started using the phrase “act of war” and started to call for diplomatic and trade responses for Mexico’s bad behavior.
“Boycott Mexico” may become a rallying cry. If people start canceling trips to Mexico, the message will be loud and clear.
Louie Gohmert, Republican representative from Texas, said on a radio show that President Obama himself was responsible for the wave of immigrants now flowing into the country. Gohmert said that Obama “should send U. S. military forces into Mexico to keep illegal immigrants out of the United States.”
Gopthedailydose.com summed up the story this way: “A Monday joint press conference was held by Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina to announce their agreement to jointly cooperate in and facilitate the invasion of their northern neighbor, the United States.”
A conservative news site reported, “Mexico, Guatemala and Belize Join Forces, Declare War on USA…Mexico and Guatemala have finalized a deal which will allow Guatemalan citizens (who would normally be arrested and deported or imprisoned in Mexico) to travel on 72-hour passes through Mexico on their way to our Southern border! The deal seems to also allow citizens of Belize a similar legal passage through our southern neighbor.”
The above-mentioned liberal columnist noted: “The problem is that Obama’s credibility is virtually non-existent now. No one believes he really wants ‘Border security,’ and whatever window-dressing he attempts with this funding bill is not going to convince people he’s serious.”
There is the further legal tangle of how much Obama is responsible for the deal struck by Mexico and these other countries. Is he in effect encouraging them to break our laws for his own political purposes? This would seem to constitute treason.
Instead of visiting the Texas border, Obama parties.
