    Default Mexico Is Not Really An American Friend

    Mexico Is Not Really An American Friend

    Victor Davis Hanson | Jan 19, 2023

    Left-wing Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador recently praised a visiting President Joe Biden: "Just imagine: There are 40 million Mexicans in the United States - 40 million who were born here in Mexico, (or) who are the children of people who were born in Mexico!"

    Why wouldn't Obrador be delighted? Since Biden took office in January 2021, America has allowed some 5-6 million illegal entries across its southern border.

    Obrador further congratulated the malleable Biden whom he sees as a kindred but complacent left-wing spirit: "You are the first president of the United States in a very long time that has not built even one meter of wall."

    Translated that means Mexico is delighted the United States now cares little about the security of its border, the disappearance of which is wonderful news for Mexico.

    Note that Mexico itself facilitates illegal transits across its southern border - as long as such Central American and other global migrants keep heading northward into the United States.

    But when or if they pause, try to stay in Mexico, commit crimes, or expect Mexican social services, then almost immediately Mexico City sends thousands of troops to close its border with Guatemala, deports the illegal crossers, and revives talk of building a border wall of its own.

    Biden has demolished America's southern border. His illegal nullification of U.S. immigration law is music to Obrador's ears.

    But it is a nightmare to Americans who poll overwhelming disapproval of the subversion of their border security. They are exhausted by the influx of death-dealing drugs. And they are furious over the hundreds of billions of dollars diverted from their strapped social services to attend to the needs of foreign nationals who have broken their laws.

    Even overwhelmed blue sanctuary cities that once boasted of nullifying federal immigration law are now beginning to object to Biden's complicity in Mexico's manipulation of the border.

    Obrador is delighted that Biden is the first White House occupant who in matters of the shared southern border grants all of Mexico's wishes, but almost none of his citizens.
    That reality raises the question that if Mexico were a declared enemy of the United States, how would it behave any differently than it is now?

    Take drugs, for example. American overdoses due to fentanyl and other opioids are nearing 100,000 deaths per year.

    Almost all such lethal opiates are manufactured in factories operated by drug cartels in Mexico that enjoy de facto immunity from prosecution. The Mexican opioid industry was designed solely for lucrative export to the United States - with zero concern over the death and destruction its products cause here.

    Well aside from human trafficking and smuggling, cartel drugs indirectly earn the Mexican economy somewhere between $35-45 billion each year.

    A hostile China profits by selling Mexicans the raw product. Beijing gains satisfaction that at the present death rate, more Americans will perish this decade alone from imported Mexican drugs than all the combat deaths in all the wars since America's founding.

    In that sense, Mexico is doing more damage to America than all our prior enemies combined.

    Obrador is equally callous in bragging that he exports his own poor. Left unsaid is that a naturally rich Mexico either will not, or cannot, adequately employ, feed, shelter, and protect its impoverished citizens.

    So instead, it cynically sees its people as a lucrative export commodity while holding U.S. laws in veritable contempt.

    Currently, Mexican nationals are sending nearly $60 billion a year in remittances from the United States to Mexico to aid friends and families who do not find enough succor from their government in Mexico City. Untaxed remittances far and away constitute the largest source of Mexico's foreign exchange income.

    Much of that gifting is made possible by generous American state and federal subsidies to illegal aliens. Frequent subsidized housing, healthcare, legal assistance, education, and food in the United States are often used to free up cash for illegals, who then send it to Mexico.

    Mexico sees this export of its people as a win-win-win-win proposition.

    Illegal immigration to America exempts Mexico from covering the social welfare costs of its poorest.

    In safety-valve fashion, it exports the volatility of social inequality rather than spending large sums to address it.

    Mexico sees its huge and growing expatriate community as a valuable lobbying lever inside America, given the longer Mexican nationals are absent from Mexico, the more they romanticize the country they fled.

    Finally, Mexico is a left-wing nation. The more it sends its poor to the United States, the more it feels Democratic politicians who grant concessions to Mexico will gain valuable new political constituents - ensuring still further concessions.

    One sure sign of historic national decline is the collective inability of a government and its people to defend their borders and national sovereignty.

    Mexico would happily agree.

    some day soon, we'll wake up to a 'red dawn'-like event where armed 'aliens' are taking to the streets. And at that point, resistance may be futile. Keep remembering the vision of that Romanmian dude where he saw an invasion of the US with folks from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua leading the invasion. pResident biden announced we'll be allowing 30k aliens from the already mentioned countries beginning this year. get ready. prep and pray,the end has arrived. .

    Dimitri Dudamin, if I remember correctly, said while the US was busy dealing with an internal revolution, started by the Communists, that we would be attacked form 11 countries, though he couldn't remember all the names the angel told him. I'll have to try to resurrect his prophecy to find out. Thanks for the reminder, "cons"! It's almost as if we were going to be surrounded by armies and navies...God only knows.

    What! No!
    ''... I believe that the maintenance of the rights and authority reserved to the states and to the people...are a safeguard to the continuance of a free government...whereas the consolidation of the states into one vast Republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of that ruin which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded it.''- Gen. Robert E. Lee

    just fyi, watch Estonia and Finland. they're talking about blocking the ruskies from entering the north Atlantic. If they do close it to the bear, it is an actual legit reason to go to war. Putin will not put with blocking off his only water route to St. Petersburg. NATO is also moving toys around to facilitate the baltic states to stand up to Putin. The is getting really real so better watch the Democommmies in the District of Criminals what they do with Russia and the baltics. tinder time with all nations getting ready for the big game. IF and that IF they close the straight, its on. So weeks or months away? Add to that the massive number of layoffs that began with Microsoft and Google and starting elsewhere ramping up, just like WW2. prep and pray, the end has arrived.

    That's an act of war and Russia would be within it's rights to counter attack them
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.

    yep and Putin knows it too. I just don't want a brain dead pResdient to take us to war without a truly legit reason. Although, war usually doesn't have ANY legit reason to kill en mass. but its coming and soon. and here. prep and pray, the end has arrived.
