So-called political experts are being interviewed by print and broadcast news outlets about claims that Mexico’s President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador is no pushover for the likes of U.S. President Donald Trump, who has a knack for getting under-the-skin of socialists, liberals and run-of-the-mill moochers.
It’s hard not to see the eventual friction between the two countries who share roughly 2,000-miles of border. The friction is further exacerbated by the influx of uninvited Mexicans who are practically told they have an inalienable right to being allowed into the United States and basically come-and-go as they please. In fact, that is exactly the message Mexican and Central Americans are receiving from their respective government officials.
Misael Zavala reports for El Universal that at a campaign rally on June 19, 2018, Obrador, protested the Trump administration “locking migrant children in cages” and declared that if he wins the July 1 election, he will be an advocate for the “human right” of “migrants” from the Americas and the world to flood the United States. “And soon, very soon, to the triumph of our movement we are going to defend the migrants of the entire American continent and all the migrants of the world who, by necessity, have to leave their villages to seek life in the United States. It is a human right that we are going to defend,” Obrador said defiantly.
Despite its poverty-rate, Mexico still has the distinction of being the number two Latin American economy, and the United States is one of its largest trading partner. But despite its positive factors, Mexico has little financial leverage over the United States, unless you listen to many Democrat politicians and their news media cohorts.
Actually the newly-elected President Obrador has in terms of a defense two things, neither of them deserving Americans’ applause: illegal immigration and drugs. Both of these Mexican exports are unappreciated by a majority of Americans and both exports lead to the death of American citizens, who are basically looked-down upon by the elitist anti-American-capitalists as a hindrance to their ultimate New World Order. But that’s to be expected say his critics because he is a far-left politician much like the last two presidents — Maduro and Chavez — who turned Venezuela into what President Trump would label a sh*thole.
“The true meaning of the tidal waves of illegal immigrants — especially those who are uneducated and have lived under Marxist or socialist regimes — is the replacement of America’s demographic makeup with more and more identity politics with political elites in control,” said social science expert Larafe Khan of the Khan-Imtiaz Project.
President-elect Obrador already blames a flood of U.S. grain for turning honest Mexican farmers into opioid growers and the Mexican leader has few above-board negotiating options. But the truth escapes Obrador’s attention, according to Dr. Khan.
When animosity between Trump and Mexico’s new leader increases their nations’ disharmony, the Mexicans will begin manipulating illegal immigration and the drug trade and Americans will continue to die, the Democrats will continue to lie and the news media will continue to promulgate fake news.
