This photo is why Mexico has to pay for the wall.
When you realize that Mexico is assuredly looking the other way and almost chaperoning many foreigners from Latin American countries south of them through Mexico to our border knowing full well they are going to cross into America illegally makes the Mexican government complicit in our huge illegal immigration problem.
Elevating the charge that they are intentionally assisting this illegal migration into our sovereign nation is the fact that Mexico has more stringent immigration laws than the United States. Interesting.
As Phil Kent at philkentconsulting.com reports on his website in his article ‘Comparing Mexico’s Tough Immigration Laws To Ours:’
Here’s what Mexico’s “Law on Population” contains:
- Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society. Immigration officials must “ensure” that “immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance” (Article 34). Furthermore, Article 37 says foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” Can you imagine the uproar if our Congress debated, let alone passed, such a stipulation?
- Mexican authorities must keep track of every single person in the country. Article 73 says federal, local and municipal police must cooperate with immigration authorities in assisting with the arrest of illegal immigrants.
- Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned (Article 116).
- Foreigners who fail to obey the rules will be fined, deported and/or imprisoned as felons (Article 117).
- Illegal immigration is a felony (Articles 123, 125).
- Mexicans who help illegal aliens enter the country are themselves considered criminals under the law. For example, a Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner live in the country is subject to up to five years in prison (Article 127).
Here’s what the Mexican Constitution also says:
- Non-citizens cannot participate in the country’s political life (Article 33). Non-citizens are also forbidden to participate in demonstrations or express opinions in public about domestic politics.
- There are no equal employment rights to immigrants, even legal ones, in the public sector (Article 32).
- Fundamental property rights are denied to foreigners. Article 27 states: “Only Mexicans by birth or naturalization and Mexican companies have the right to acquire ownership of lands, waters and their appurtenances, or to obtain concessions for the exploitation of mines or of waters….”
- An immigrant who becomes a naturalized Mexican citizen can be stripped of his Mexican citizenship if he lives again in the country of his origin for more than five years (Article 37).
- Foreigners may be expelled for any reason and without due process. According to Article 33: “The Federal Executive shall have the exclusive power to compel any foreigner whose remaining he may deem inexpedient to abandon the national territory immediately and without the necessity of previous legal action.
Clearly, Mexico’s immigration laws are far tougher than the United States. Yet its sanctimonious legislators will spin gullible American journalists about how they somehow hold the high road with regard to their immigration laws.” – Unquote
So this serious effort of aiding and abetting these masses of people all the way through their country to knowingly sneak into ours in the face of making extreme exceptions to their own very stringent immigration laws is not only intentional, the Mexican government obviously has actually schemed the entire allowance to burden the United States or it wouldn’t have happened.
Mexico should be glad we haven’t declared war on them for just this intent to harm the U.S. alone, but given that their police and military have actually entered our country numerous times in support of drug cartels there is real cause for such consideration should Mexico get in a snit about the fact that they are now starting to pay for our new wall and will pay for it all eventually as per President Trump.
Perhaps once we start repatriating some of Mexico’s own citizens who have snuck in here illegally, and been exposed to free enterprise and what can be accomplished when one applies themselves, once back home those Mexicans might help stimulate the Mexican economy to indirectly assist in our wall payments also through their taxes there.
MEXICO’S PAYING FOR THE WALL HAS BEGUN
Ford Motor Company has actually moved production from Mexico to Ohio. From 2000 to 2014, the F-650 and F-750 were manufactured in Mexico. But in 2014, production shifted to Avon Lake, Ohio.
Ford Motor Company had been planning to build a $1.6 billion factory in Mexico.
Instead, the company announced it was canceling the Mexican car factory and added that it would invest $700 million to expand its Flat Rock Michigan factory. The money will go toward manufacturing high-tech electric, hybrid and autonomous cars and adds 700 U.S. jobs.
General Motors Company put out a press release touting planned and past investments in its U.S. operations, including an additional $1 billion to be spent on manufacturing this year.
GM says the $1 billion will be spent on “multiple new vehicles, advanced technology and component projects” and will result in 1,500 new or retained jobs.
450 of those will move from Mexico to Michigan when GM “insures” pickup and SUV axle production.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will shift production of Ram heavy-duty pickup trucks from Mexico to Michigan in 2020, a move that lowers the risk to the automaker’s profit should President Donald Trump pull the United States out of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Ok, money from these three announcements don’t add up to enough to pay for the wall yet, but it is a beginning.
Also, since Mexico has been doing so well with all the manufacturing that NAFTA sent them contrary to what NAFTA proponents claimed, why are we still providing $320 million a year in aid to Mexico? That money could also pay for a large chunk of the wall.
CANCEL, DON’T NEGOTIATE NAFTA
President Trump may love negotiating too much. It appears he is actually itching to re-negotiate NAFTA since he says he’s looking forward to re-negotiating it. Actually, Mr. Trump we need just canceling this bogus system that was designed to take us down to a more palatable plane economically that would render seguing our system more homogenously with that of our ‘to be member state partners, Canada and Mexico,’ in the formerly looming North American Union.
That would be where we were to relinquish even more of our sovereignty in the plan on our way to the ultimate status of a member state of a globalist union like the European Union, which would of course culminate in time to the ultimate goal of our being a member state of the one world government run by unaccountable, unelected global elitist who know best about everything for everybody. Fortunately, President Trump canceled our involvement in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
“The formerly proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) constituted an all-out assault on, and an existential threat to, America’s sovereignty and independence. These twin, trans-oceanic agreements are massive schemes that propose a very radical transformation of the global politico-economic system, with revolutionary integration and convergence of the major Atlantic and Pacific nations.
“Modern Preferential Trade Agreements (PTAs, such as NAFTA, TPP, and TTIP) have become so comprehensive and complex that they guarantee conflict — both among the nations that are party to the agreement, as well as between private parties and the various nation-state parties. Resolving the conflict means resorting to adjudication. As with NAFTA, the TPP and TTIP create conflict resolution tribunals (courts) that claim the authority to overrule national, state, and local laws, as well as national and state courts and national and state constitutions.
Additionally, PTA members often opt to appeal their cases to the World Trade Organization tribunal, which claims global judicial authority. In practice, this amounts, virtually, to legislating globally from the bench, striking down laws and ordering revisions. This is not merely a theoretical threat, it is already happening.”
“In 1993, the year before NAFTA went into effect, the United States had a $1.66 billion trade surplus with Mexico; by 1995, the first year after NAFTA had entered into force that changed to a $15.8 billion deficit. By 2000, that annual deficit had soared to $24.5 billion, and by 2007 it hit $74.7 billion. For 2014, our trade deficit with Mexico dipped to only $53.8 billion. In 1993, the year before NAFTA, we imported around 225,000 cars and trucks from Mexico. By 2005, our imports of Mexican-made vehicles had tripled to 700,000 vehicles annually, and in 2012, Mexico’s export of vehicles to the United States surpassed 1.4 million. Chrysler, Ford, and GM transferred major production facilities (and jobs) from the United States to Mexico. Our trade deficits with Canada have followed a similar path since adoption of NAFTA.

“The Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) authors and other pseudo-free trade propagandists had cherry-picked data and simply invented statistics to fraudulently sell their product: NAFTA. If they were car salesmen, they would have gone to jail for fraud and misrepresentation. Instead, they are back doing the same thing, concocting rosy statistics to sell the TPP and TTIP.”
“NAFTA proponent Gary Hufbauer member of the Council on Foreign Relations and of the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) predicted in his 1993 paper “NAFTA An Assessment,’ “with NAFTA, U.S. exports to Mexico will continue to outstrip Mexican exports to the United States, leading to a U.S. trade surplus with Mexico of about $7 billion to $9 billion annually between 2000 and 2010.
“Haufbauer also predicted that 170,000 new net jobs will be created by NAFTA. In a 1995 interview with the Wall Street Journal he admitted, “The best figure for the jobs effect of NAFTA is approximately zero… The lesson for me is to stay away from job forecasting.” – Unquote Bill Jasper, senior editor of TheNewAmerican.com
There you have it. We get out of NAFTA, letting commerce take care of itself in a normal one-on-one buy sell un-regulated atmosphere and Mexico indirectly starts paying for the wall through loss of unfair trade advantages designed like subsidies working on their behalf.
True for the foreseeable future they will remain the low-cost labor market, but with increases in robotic technologies, it is probably not as important as it once was considering a manufacturing location’s proximity to the market, taxes and transportation costs and how about the more attractive marketing pitch about buying American made.
We should pray that President Trump cancels NAFTA, so we are out from under all the controls such as its tribunals that circumvent our sovereign court system and all the other controls infesting it, so we can best Make America Great Again with American made products. Then with us on a level playing field again, Mexico will suffer losing its subsidized advantages and subsequently will indirectly start paying more on the wall. They truly deserve to pay for it.
Bring ’em home and MAGA.
