Mexico has an illegal alien problem along their southern border too. There are thousands of illegals from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador that enter Mexico illegally. The Mexican government deports about 90 percent of them on average.
Mind you, most of these illegals entering Mexico from the south are on their way to the United States, where they plan to enter illegally. It’s a good thing that Mexico stops most of them from getting through.
So what about Trump’s wall?
Mexican politicians have stated that they will not pay for Trump’s wall. They won’t even pay for a portion of it. Maybe Mexican politicians will consider a wall on their southern border to keep out the estimated 170,000 Central Americans who sneak into Mexico annually.
So what about the double standard?
Mexicans don’t mind sending Central Americans home, but call us racist for rounding up illegal Mexicans and deporting them from America.
The Federalist Papers Project reports:
Mexico seems to hold a rather shocking double standard on deporting illegal immigrants. While they denounce Donald Trump for saying he will build a wall along the American southern border, and say that they will not be funding this wall, Mexico deports about 90% of its own illegal immigrants. Hypocrisy much?
So it’s okay for Mexicans to migrate illegally to the US, and when we try to deport them it’s “racist”; yet it’s perfectly fine for Mexico to deport 90% of their illegal immigrants, and that’s not racist at all. “Peña Nieto has stated that there is ‘no way,’ his country will foot the bill for a U.S.-Mexico border wall.”
