Peak Irony: Mexico Wants To Build The Wall To Stop Illegal Immigration

Submitted by Mac Slavo via,

It turns out that Donald Trump’s proposed border wall is not such a bad idea after all. Though Mexico’s current and former Presidents have both lambasted Trump for implying that a wall would curb immigration, it turns out that Mexicans like the idea.

There is one small caveat, however. Mexicans don’t want to build the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, but rather, they want to stem the tide of immigration into their own country  by building the wall on their southern border with central America:

One of the largest newspapers along Mexico’s border with Texas is calling for a border wall with Central America, similar to the one being promoted by Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump.


The editorial board of El Mañana, one of the largest newspapers in the border state of Tamaulipas,  penned a piece called “Yes to the Border Wall … but in Mexico’s South.” The piece praises the idea of border wall, not on the border with Mexico, but on the border with Central America.


“Along the Mexican border peace and quiet came to an end, Central Americans played a large influence,” El Mañana’s piece claimed.


The Mexican border newspaper provides a controversial view on the Border Wall; which is one of the main topics in Trump’s campaign.


“Mexico’s southeast has two borders; one with Guatemala and one with Belize, that do not provide any benefit, but on the contrary only problems are brought by these crossing points that are being used for the new invasion. The one use by Central American’s looking for a way into the United States. ” El Mañana’s editorial board wrote.


One of the issues mentioned in the editorial piece points not only to the hordes of Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans that flock to Reynosa in an effort to get to the U.S., but also to the large number of Central Americans that are left in Mexico after deportation.

Full report at Breitbart

Eastern European countries are expanding their border fence networks to keep middle east refugees from crossing into their countries, a strategy that has cut illegal immigration by over 90% in those nations.

President Obama made the one in front of the White House even higher and more elaborate.

Prisons tend to build them, too.

The Mexicans want one.

And now even the Democratic National Committee has decided that fences work to keep out the riff-raff. They’ve built an 8 foot high, 4 mile long fence around their convention.

It seems like these days everyone wants to build a wall.

But according to former DHS chief Janet Napolitano, walls don’t work to keep people out and are ineffective immigration policy, so we’re not sure what all the fuss is about.

Home Depot Co-Founder Makes Stunning Announcement Supporting About Trump

In an op-ed piece for RealClearPolitics, The Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus said he was supporting Donald Trump, arguing that another four years of liberal policies could ruin the country.

“As a backer of former Republican presidential candidates, I now stand in support of Donald J. Trump because the fate of this nation depends upon sending him, and not Hillary Clinton, to the White House,” Marcus wrote in the Wednesday piece.

This article is ignorant. There's a big difference between Trump's wall and Mexico's wall. America is a nation of immigrants, and the border states were stolen from Mexico. Thus, it is hypocritical for America to tell Mexican immigrants simply seeking a better life in the land of their ancestors that they do not have a right to be here. We as white people need to help those less fortunate than us, and give back to the people whom we have wronged. Mexicans are simply protecting the land that they rightfully own.

What about the tribes who had the land stolen before the current Mexican's took their land? What a load of crap! Good satire though MDB.

Eurocentric history is flawed and racist! Look up alternative forms of history from the people of colors' perspective!

Why should we? What have "they" ever won throughout history?

I would love to see Trump build a thick wall better than the Great Wall of China.  A wall to be proud of that would last for centuries.  It would be fabulous!  The Great Wall of America! Phuck Mexico and Central America.

My boy came up with that one a few days ago,  and took it a step further;  "they need to make it so soldiers can stay on top of it with machine guns and turrets and rpg's and rifles and mortars and...."

Maybe he's been playing too much COD lately....

What about the people of mixed races? Suppose an american who is German, Mexican, Native american and Kiwi wants to travel to Mexico? Is this why schizophrenia is on the rise? Are we to build 'mental' walls from ourselves...?

Every history theory is owncentric, a theory made by black researchers will be blackcentric, another made by hispanic will be hispanic centric, and, in the end, the are all right, and all wrong, right because an individual can only see the world through his own eyes, and what he sees, is real to him, and wrong because all the other 8 billion eyes in the planet will see the exact same phenomena in a completely different way, by the very nature of the Individuality Principle.
THe alternative forms of history are as valid as the Eurocentric, q.e.d.

May knowledge set us free.

That's a real problem,  and I blame education. No one can reason anymore. Debate is a lost art. Fallacies abound in all arguments.

Nobody listens, they only wait for thier turn to speak to push their agenda.

Oh  sweet Lord! When will people finally understand that MDB is simply stating in perfect little capsules what the main stream of our dying culture

is feeding us daily....He does it perfectly every time...

Tip for Trump:  Here's the negotiating point.  We'll build TWO walls at the same time on the north and south borders.

You may have not heard the latest news.


When Venezuelans see pictures of food......they freakin cry.


That's not a system I want....and the DNC can go to hell......cause NOTHING is free.


If the DNC wants to impress me.....they can get on a plane......and take some food down to Venezuela.


Here's the catch.....for FREE!

I call bullshit, they're really building it to keep all the Americans out after Hillary is elected

What gives white Americans the right to criticize Mexico, an hispanic country? This article is racist!

Dear MDB

Your sarc/trolling used to be entertaining, it always had a certain amount of subtlety and nuance. The efforts you have been presenting lately show a complete lack of imagination. If I didn't know better I would think you had outsourced them to some third world country to save $$$. You have proved you are better than this, so let's see it. The greats never take a day off, even in the hot summer, quit mailing it in or go away

Quality dropped and quantity picked up when he started imping his own crappy blog.  Lost cause, I'm afraid.

Yeah, this new one, with the underscore at the end of its name, is okay, but not nearly as biting or sarcastic as the old one without the underscore. I'm a sarcasm guy, and the old one used to always get a grin out of me, but this one is just blah-blah-blah meme this blah-blah-blah meme that... no bite, no edge, no malicious intent.

Define "racism


Determining the race of a person  e.g.  That brown dude over there what racism?

pazmaker's picture

MDB  obviously you haven't kept up to date on what Mexicans and other Latinos like and don't like...They don;t like being called Hispanic any more.  How can you be so insensitive to their feelings and not have known this already?


What a typical insensitive white guy you are.  Trying to come to the rescue of a less fortunate race!   Somos Latinos o se puede usar La Raza si quieres!

"Hispanic" is a term of art invented by the USG primarily for census purposes. It has no historical validity and does not precisely describe anything or anyone in particular. "Hispanics" are surely not a "race" except in the confused minds of morons who believe language defines ethnicity.

lol...has Janet ever been to Africa?  Africa is a world of walls...they exist, because they are effective.  Entire cultures (take the Tang Dynasty for example) protected itself with it's massive wall around Chang'An (modern Xi'An).

moving on...sure, land mining a border is more cost effective.  Just shooting trespassers is more cost effective.  But neither of those are PC what choice are we left with Janet?

There may come a day when many Americans who wish to leave will find that the wall prevents them from doing so.  Remember Berlin?

How come articles about walls never mention the wall in Israel?  It's 280 miles long and will eventually be 430 miles, when finished.  Suicide and bomb attacks have reduced from about 60 a year when the wall was first started to 1 or 2 a year now.  The Israelis are very happy with their wall.

It's been condemned by the UN and the International Court of Justice.  It is 24 feet tall in most places.  The Israelis consider it to be a success.

That is precisely why the UN condemns it.

@ Ghengis86: 

Mexico is a great country, with great people. In the absence of the political corruption and drug cartels, I'd live there in a heartbeat. 

Most of the people there have a value system that borders on "Extreme Conservative". 

Americans whine about the fact that most of them that come here don't want to learn English...but the Americans never bother to ask why? 

The answer to the question (directly obtained from Mexicans)? They don't want their kids adopting "American" culture (Jew 'culture'). They don't want back-talking wives, disrespectful kids, and lazy people who sit on their asses with their hand out. 

Can't say I blame them. I don't want it either. 

The food's good, the friendships are real, and they are fiercely loyal. 

Of course, I'm basing my opinions on my own experiences (results may vary).
