We all know about cross-border crime on the Mexico border. What we don't know, according to the liberal media, is that the crime is all one-way: Mexico does not export crime to America, but America causes crime in Mexico. A lot of it! Who knew?
The genesis of the article was a remark by President Trump that Mexico's murder rate increased by 27% to 31,000 murders in 2017, in justification for Trump's request for a border wall.
The liberal media could not let that stand!
So they cited reports claiming that Mexico does not cause crime in America. Those stories you hear about Phoenix being the kidnap capital of America? Ignore them!
In what officials caution is now a dangerous and even deadly crime wave, Phoenix, Arizona has become the kidnapping capital of America, with more incidents than any other city in the world outside of Mexico City and over 370 cases last year alone. In fact, kidnappings and other crimes connected to the Mexican drug cartels are quickly spreading across the border, from Texas to California. The majority of the victims are either illegal aliens or connected to the drug trade.
The fact that 32% of federal inmates are illegal aliens? Don't pay attention to that, either!
Instead, focus on how America is "causing" crime in Mexico:
1. Private gun ownership is basically illegal in Mexico. So guns are smuggled in from America and are used on a population that can't defend itself. But instead of welcoming these undocumented gun-owners and bringing them "out of the shadows," promoting gun equality for all, Mexico cracks down on illegal gun ownership, even separating families from their guns in tearful, emotional scenes, only further fueling the cross-border smuggling.

Sure, Mexico...you’re a failed criminal narco-state. And the US caused it. FU
Well, duh. If we let the criminals from Mexico into the United States, the crime rate in Mexico will decrease.
Boy, O Boy!! The liberals live in never, never land. They have it all backward. The Hispanic community has always had heavy crime rates. There are plenty of Hispanics who deplore crime and fight crime, but nevertheless, crime and wetbacks are synonymous words.
Do they mean Obozos Fast and Furious?
Maybe the Mexican murder rate jumped BECAUSE we’re sending MORE OF THEIR CRIMINALS BACK HOME TO MEXICO WHERE THEY BELONG.
Okay. Let’s build that wall to protect Mexico from our crime. It is only neighborly. At last, all parties can agree.
Personally, I’m more interested in dealing with the crime illegal aliens bring with them from Mexico and the rest of South and Central America.
Buid the Wall. Heck, build a DMZ.
“Mexico cracks down on illegal gun ownership, even separating families from their guns in tearful, emotional scenes, only further fueling the cross-border smuggling.”
Cry me a river.
Well it is caused by us somewhat indirectly. Since we were allowing unchecked illegal immigration, Mexico had no reason to find or control criminals, they just sent them here. Now that we are deporting more people and refusing more at the border, they have more criminals. Hence, more crime and it’s all our fault. If Mexico or any other country does not want the U.S. to be the #1 Super Power, all they have to do is to start taking responsibility for themselves and stop blaming us for everything.
What? By deporting all the Mexican criminals back to Mexico we are causing a crime wave?
