Trump REBUKES Mexico for no longer stopping illegal immigrants…

Within the last hour Trump issued a couple tweets rebuking Mexico for no longer stopping illegal immigrants from approaching our southern border:



I appreciate that Trump has tried to pressure Mexico stop immigrants from coming, and there for a while it looked like they were doing it.

In fact it was at the end of April that he acknowledged that Mexico had stopped part of a 20,000 person caravan, and encouraged them to stop the rest as he promised to send more military to the border.

But I guess all of that has changed according to Trump’s latest tweets. We’ll post his response as soon as he makes it.

“Mexico’s attitude is that people from other countries, including Mexico, should have the right to flow into the U.S. & that U.S. taxpayers should be responsible for the tremendous costs associated w/this illegal migration”.

I’m just betting that Mexico’s attitude is probably…America, the worlds SUPERPOWER is responsible for its own border. AMERICA decides who is allowed to enter their country, so blaming Mexico for the US Governments screwup is a cop out.

A fairly recent worldwide study on each country’s productivity and determined that Mexicans are the laziest, followed very closely by Costa Rica. Mexico may talk about helping the US, but talking is about as far as they will go.

…..and I will soon be giving a response,what does that mean,you will be taking back that just improved NAFTA agreement you just signed with them and Canada.Mr. President nothing works when they are aware you will soon be changing your mind.That last tweet you made .Mexico has stopped nothing from entering, they stopped themselves at our Southern Border until they were joined by the other groups of thousands still entering the Southern Border of Mexico. Clue,they overwhelmed us because you were not challenging anyone with more so called Troops who apparently forgot how to reach the Boder

We should’ve kept what we conquered from Mexico back in the day. It would’ve been the greatest thing that ever happened to them. They certainly can’t do squat with it.

How can Trump expect that craphole can do anything? That dump sits next door to the greatest economy in history and they can’t get close to getting it right.

Mexico has no intention whatsoever of stopping this invasion. They complicit and supportive.

And that’s completely wrong. Just because they don’t care about their own sovereignty, doesn’t mean they can disrespect ours. I hope Trump does more than tweet about it.

and there for a while it looked like they were doing it.

Yea, calling total BS on that. I called it back then, and I’m calling it again now. I’ve got friends down in Mexico City and they say there’s two general vibes going on: 1) they are nine kids of sick of these ingrates stomping through their streets on the path north, and 2) they are openly laughing at the ludicrous notion that the Mexican government has any reason or incentive to stop any of it.

Mexico was never doing jack squat. Everything Donald said to the contrary was a brazen lie, meant to sate his bloc who’s getting increasingly frustrated by his empty promises. This was HIS issue, and it’s worse than ever. You can blame the Democrats for their share of that all you want, but Donald is not helping.

If Mexicans don’t want ingrates stomping through their streets, then they should stop them on their own southern border.

Trump has done almost everything he can while Repubs and Dems refuse to fix it. It’s hilarious when people make out like trump can just do whatever he wants and fix the problem. News flash. This can only be fixed by Congress and Congress doesn’t want to fix it. What’s he supposed to do? Ignore the law and court decisions? In the mean time he is doing all that can with the power he has. You just don’t like Trump and have a bad case of TDS.

I agree. Trump throws all these “fixes” out there to keep his base mesmerized/cheering at what he’s accomplishing, when in reality the majority of what he says on immigration is all talk.

So when is Trump going to invoke the Insurrection Act? We need military at the border to stop the invasion.

We have military at the border…the National guard. BP agents have been sent from all over down there. The are processing and babysitting. There is nothing anyone can do about a congress that won’t act and Judges (Radical) don’t care either. Trump can keep fighting but essentially, he is all alone. I’m not sure we can help. …We also have a horrible dictator who Loves and supports Madura, running Mexico..Unless or until he rules are changed, nothing changes and in fact will get much worse…They are hiring for shuttle drivers to drop off 225k throughout the country, add up how many are already hear, we will have upwards of 50+ millions here and I think that’s low…Oh and add all the people here on visas who stay…

I’m Very Disappointed that Trump and the GOP are doing nothing to stop illegal immigration after 2.5 years … just more faux outrage tweets.

Every month we are breaking new records on the border … how’s that Emergency EO coming along? … Any new pictures of the New Wall going up?

Only pictures we are seeing is Trump shipping illegals to different states.

Mexico is not our friend. We need the military at the border. I hope Trump follows through on the Insurrection Act.

So sick of this…Does anyone know what they are doing…We are going nowhere but down with this kind of rhetoric. I get the feeling he’s not going to do anything. He has not once criticized the R party for any of this…But, he’s building a bit of a wall….

And they still aren’t . We see it on a daily basis..Talking in circles with a brownshirt who is spoon fed his/her questions.
These Progressives in the Republican Party could care less if they win or lose. Most of them would rather lose so they can pretend to be “Conservative “ and not be held responsible. “It wasn’t us”. One party government is also fine with them..Same
pay check and even more “gifts”.
But for a very few, they could care less what we want.

They had 2 years. Didn’t provide funding as requested & then put restrictions on what they did give.
No legislation on chain migration, no funding for temporary immigration judges, no funding for new BP Agents on the Southern Border, no adequate “secured” detention facilities, still funding Sanctuary Cities, and on & on.

I’ve just heard on the radio that Ken Cuccinelli will be joining the Trump admin. in the DHS, but not as an immigration czar. It seems they brought Cuccinelli in in a capacity that doesn’t need Senate confirmation. We all know McConnell would not get him confirmed because McConnell hates Conservatives, of which Cuccinelli is one.

This is where Trump excels. What President has ever had the cajones to just come out and say the truth like this? At times like this, Trump is more than willing to ignore what is politically correct or “diplomatic” and he just says what is.

At times, it’s really refreshing.

Oh, between the Democrats, RINOs, and circuit judges – nothing useful will happen. But it’s still nice to have the President calling it like it is.

Well, telling the truth is one thing. But saying that Mexico is not helping, then helping, and again not helping only shows that he is not consistent and has no real plan to solve the issue.

So if Trump was getting reports that the Mexican government was starting to do a few things to help but then later he found out that they were no longer following through… what should he say?

Does that show Trump isn’t consistent or that Mexico’s handling isn’t consistent?

Impose a 10% penalty on all remittances sent to Mexico; and have those funds used for the immigrants who are being detained at the border… that will change their tune by the end of the day.

Other countries too. There are many in those caravans that are from other countries. According to Ice’s numbers, there are 10,000 illegal immigrants running around free in the United States from nations designated as terror sponsors, such as Iran, Syria, Sudan, and North Korea!

What are the chances the government gets addicted to the new revenue from taxing remittances? Then the government will want to encourage more migration and remittances.
