Skip to comments.Mexican president 'indignant' at U.S. deportations
Posted on 02/27/2014 1:30:07 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe
Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said he is "indignant" at the United States' deportation of Mexican migrants and described U.S. lawmakers as demonstrating a "lack of conscience" in failing to pass immigration reform.
In a television interview aired late on Wednesday Pena Nieto said he and U.S. President Barack Obama discussed the issue during their meeting at a North American leaders' summit held last week in Mexico.
His emboldened comments to Mexico's Univision channel followed days after his administration announced it had captured Mexico's most wanted man, drug lord Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman.
Pena Nieto has said any extradition of Guzman to the United States is likely to take time, underscoring the fact the drug lord still has outstanding time to serve in Mexico after a daring 2001 jail break, reportedly in a laundry cart.
"Yes it makes me indignant, and it makes Mexicans indignant," Pena Nieto said in the interview, when asked whether deportations angered him.
"There's a lack of conscience, something which shouldn't only alert and worry Mexicans, it should also worry the American government and they should take up the issue," said Pena Nieto.
Pena Nieto added that he sees a willingness on the part of the Obama administration to change immigration laws, and that reform which provides a path to citizenship should "have the backing and aid of the various political forces" in the United States.

Mas cajones than a Brass Monkey! Fix your own country first amigo!
PUCK YOU Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto!
I, as an AMERICAN taxpayer am pretty indignant too.
KEEP YOUR PEOPLE from sneaking over here into MY COUNTRY and breaking OUR LAWS.
Are you on CRACK???
“Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said he is “indignant” at the United States’ deportation of Mexican migrants and described U.S. lawmakers as demonstrating a “lack of conscience” in failing to pass immigration reform. “
OKAY Senior... Let’s reform our Immigration policy, I think it would be very Diverse and Tolerant of us to simply adopt Mexico’s immigration policy as OUR OWN, SUCK ON THAT you 2nd rate 3rd world Jerk!
Indignant!!???!! My Aunt Fanny!
HUZZAH FOR US!!
He should be ashamed that his countrymen are migrating to the U.S..
‘Migrant’ is not synonymous with ‘legal’. Take your stinking illegals back where they belong putz.
Somehow I won’t be surprised to see our Republican ‘leadership’ cave to the bully from Mexico. Bullying seems to work well for the Marxists.
He isn’t. It’s why he’s pissed they are being sent back. They leave there, off the welfare rolls, out of the prisons and away from the elite Mexicans who are tired of ‘doing things for them with nothing in return’. That’s why.
Mouths to feed, and potential hands for a rifle in a rebellion.
Has the indignant dumb ass looked at his own country’s immigration policy?
Mexicans sneaking into another country being returned to Mexico “makes Mexicans indignant”? Too bad. Set yourself on fire in protest.
If you called him “macho man” his head would probably explode, and it would not be a bad thing.
I am “indignant” that this tinhorn mexican feels he has any say in anything we do in the USA...especially about illegal alien invaders.
um.. he might want to look at his own constitution!
It’s not easy being the anus of the western hemisphere but Mexico sure tries.
If we had a real president his reply to the Mexican president would be "I am indignant that the Mexican political class has created a nation so crappy, poor, and violent that the inmates are trying to escape!"
Try to imagine a US president actively encouraging Americans to cross illegally into Canada, and then criticizing the Canadian government for deporting them.
How great would it be if we could export our poorest 10% to Canada and let Canada take care of them, while they send money back to the US? Our economy would be thriving.
A wealthy country like Mexico should focus on building an economic infrastructure that would encourage people to stay there instead of risking their lives to escape. I guess the ruling class in Mexico doesn't want too many indigenous Mexicans actually living in Mexico.
If we sealed the border for a month, there would be a revolution in Mexico.
Lying hypocrit should check out his own countyr’s policies to Central American and South American Invaders.
I wish we could get a President with the guts to tell those damn sobs in Mexico to go stuff it for once and start seizing MEXICAN assets in America to defray the cost of dealing with THEIR illegal invaders processing HERE!
