Mexico's New Leftist President 'Builds A Wall' On Southern Border To Thwart Illegal Immigration

Mexican President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador intends to create a new border-police force to fight illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and illicit firearms trafficking from Central America, his incoming chief of public security Alfonso Durazo, told Bloomberg in an interview Monday.

Durazo indicated that the new border-police force would be part of a much larger regional effort to reduce poverty and violence that plagues so many Central American countries, which ultimately leads to a flood of families crossing into Mexico. He said the new police force will be sizeable and deployed to Mexico’s southern border. Durazo declined to offer more specifics to Bloomberg, but he noted that the police force would be used to secure the northern border as well.

We’re going to create a border police force that will be highly specialized,” Durazo told Bloomberg.

They need to apply the law,” against illegal immigration and human trafficking crossing into Mexico, which Durazo points out often occurs under the supervision of corrupt officials.

Lopez Obrador and the left-wing populist party he founded in 2014 won the presidential election in a landslide victory last week after voters disgusted with cartel violence, poverty-stricken communities, and vast amounts of corruption kicked the country’s established parties out of power. Obrador also got a boost from voters when he pledged to defend Mexicans against an immigrant crackdown by President Donald Trump.

Obrador’s next task will be securing the country’s southern border while avoiding the sharp criticism he has scrutinized Trump for.

The newfound emphasis on containing illegal immigration comes amid President Trump’s crusade to shift some of the blame on Mexican officials for the tidal wave of Central American immigrants passing through Mexico to the U.S. Interesting enough, President Trump said: “I think he’s [Mexico’s President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador] going to try and help us with border.”

The outgoing Mexican President, Enrique Peña Nieto, will transfer power to Obrador on December 1st. Peña Nieto leaves behind a country with declining moral and widespread doubts about the future.

Bloomberg notes that Obrador will meet with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday, as both will likely discuss immigration topics.

Durazo told Bloomberg that the new border-police force under the Obrador administration would not only secure the country’s borders, it will also address the socioeconomic issues that have contributed to the surge in illegal migration from Central America. This new approach has not been tried by past administrations.

The future public-security chief told Bloomberg that the establishment has failed to contain illegal immigration due to an overemphasis on enforcement and an underemphasis on the humanitarian side of helping poverty-stricken communities.

“The legitimate use of force by the state is a resource,” Durazo said.

“But it shouldn’t be the first resource, it should be the last one.”

Durazo said the only way to fight government corruption, which facilitates human trafficking and drug smuggling, is to significantly increase salaries and wages for law-enforcement officials. This would deter officials from taking bribes from cartels.

In another interview with The Associated Press, Durazo was optimistic about the reforms, which he called a “Mexican recipe for peace.” Still, Mexico’s record violence and homicides produced by drug cartels will not be resolved in one day. If the Obrador administration is successful in implementing new reforms that secure the borders and tackle regional socioeconomic issues, this could be a winning strategy for North America as a whole, but, as of today, Mexico is still a shithole.

Without American addiction to killing their own minds there would be no drug demand and thus no supply and there would be no drug cartel violence.  

Mexicans et al. are litterally killing each other over the massiive profits from American self-hate. 

No wall could get in the way of that.   But just in case, don't worry, big Pharma is there to lend a hand, for a price of course....

and

Without Americans fucking up Latin American economies and creating kleptocracies and banana republics, the masses wouldn't be fleeing north. 

but i digress....

BEND, Ore. - Here is the White House's statement on President Trump's pardon of Eastern Oregon ranchers Dwight and Steven Hammond, as well as reaction from Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., the Oregon Farm Bureau and others:

Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Executive Clemency for Dwight and Steven Hammond

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed Executive Grants of Clemency (Full Pardons) for Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., and his son, Steven Hammond.  The Hammonds are multi-generation cattle ranchers in Oregon imprisoned in connection with a fire that leaked onto a small portion of neighboring public grazing land.  The evidence at trial regarding the Hammonds’ responsibility for the fire was conflicting, and the jury acquitted them on most of the charges. 

At the Hammonds’ original sentencing, the judge noted that they are respected in the community and that imposing the mandatory minimum, 5-year prison sentence would “shock the conscience” and be “grossly disproportionate to the severity” of their conduct.  As a result, the judge imposed significantly lesser sentences.  The previous administration, however, filed an overzealous appeal that resulted in the Hammonds being sentenced to five years in prison.  This was unjust.

Dwight Hammond is now 76 years old and has served approximately three years in prison.  Steven Hammond is 49 and has served approximately four years in prison.  They have also paid $400,000 to the United States to settle a related civil suit.  The Hammonds are devoted family men, respected contributors to their local community, and have widespread support from their neighbors, local law enforcement, and farmers and ranchers across the West.  Justice is overdue for Dwight and Steven Hammond, both of whom are entirely deserving of these Grants of Executive Clemency.

Which is why he isn’t an elite. Rothschild isn’t even a title bearer anymore. The elite all have formal titles.

If Trump were truly a puppet like you are saying and not a self made billionaire that knows how to deal with Jews, he wouldn’t be President. You see the last few guys that they pushed at us? The Clintons? 

The Elites all have formal titles and stewardship. Trump is a businessman, and a damn good one from what I can tell. He’s not an Elite. As far as I know he doesn’t even come from any of the Royal bloodlines either. Doesn’t matter, he’s proven he’s capable and worth respecting.

 

It’s not a a matter of not understanding. It’s the matter of working with what I have instead of working what I don’t have. Right now this man is my President. It’s a waste of time to try and change what I can’t change. If he’s knocked out the left loses even harder, because Pence is closer to my level of fire. Either way, I am winning.

Trump is a Zionist. As are the Rothschild family that own Israhell.

Sheldon Adelson owns Trump and the Republican party. What Trump understands, is anything that enriches his family. He came from wealth but was not great at business with several bankruptcies under his belt and was in debt until he became President. His companies recently got a billion dollar loan from Justice Kennedy's son, as no one else would loan to him .

He gives not one shit about his base. He cares only about himself and his donors, and Sheldon, dual Zionist casino owner is his largest. Adelson is all about Israel, hence all Trump's stupid decisions regarding Jeruslem and Iran for which Sheldon wants regime change.

Take him off the pedestal. He doesn't belong there.
