Mexico is Holding Presidential Elections on July 1, 2018 by The Elephant's Child

Andrés-Manuel-López-Obrador-

Andrés Manuel López Obrador, known as AMLO, is running for the third time, for the office of the presidency of Mexico. He announced last Tuesday that mass immigration to the United States is a “human right” for all North Americans. He is the former mayor of Mexico City, and is currently leading in the polls. He has run unsuccessfully two times previously.

“And soon, very soon—after the victory of our movement—we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world” Obrador added, saying  that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.” He then declared migration “a human right we will defend,” according to eluniversal.com.

Tucker Carlson noted Thursday that Obrador had previously proposed granting amnesty to Mexican drug cartels. and added “America is now Mexico’s social safety net, and that’s a very good deal for the Mexican ruling class.”

Well. That is certainly an interesting proposal. Is that what the Mexican people want from their president? Is Mexico such a lousy place that everybody wants to move out? Mexico’s population is 21,493,000 and growing by 78% every year. Guatemala’s is 17,239,898. Honduras, 8,435,896. Nicaragua,6,261,822. Belize: 366,954. Costa Rica: 4,937,065, and Panama: 4,137,428. That adds up to something like 8 billion, 700 million people. I don’t think they all want to come to the United States, and I wouldn’t advise it.  We estimate that we can manage to accept 1 million new immigrants a year. Theoretically we have 11 million illegal immigrants currently, but they have been using the same number for years and years.

The “victory of our movement,”and “all the migrants in the world must leave their towns and find a life in the United States”? Is this just a reaction to Trump’s rejection of illegal Mexican immigrants? Certainly cutting back on illegal immigrants means less in the way of remittances for the Mexican government, that act as a safety valve. Do the Drug Cartels provide money to the Mexican government from drugs illegally pushed across the border?

Do the Mexican people think that our opposition to illegal immigrants is because we don’t like the Mexican people? Of course not. The Democrats try to insist that our opposition to illegal immigrants is racist because many Mexicans have brown skin? Silly.  I have always liked legal immigrants who want to become Americans and are willing to wait their turn. Citizenship Ceremonies usually make me cry. They add a lot to our country. But MS-13? Drug smugglers? Sex traffickers? If you want to come to the United States and become one of us—do it the right way. Please.
