MEXICO CITY — Mexican officials are carrying out the Trump administration’s immigration agenda across broad stretches of the border, undercutting the Mexican government’s promises to defend migrants and support their search for a better life...(snip)

...Officials inside the administration of Mexico’s new president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, have called his stance on migrants a strategic decision not to anger President Trump. He doesn’t believe he can change Mr. Trump’s mind, they contend. Furthermore, the officials say, Mr. López Obrador has not wanted to jeopardize other aspects of the deeply interconnected relationship between the two countries, ranging from elaborate regional trading arrangements to information sharing on border security, transnational crime and terrorism. ..(snip)

...The Mexican government is resisting Mr. Trump in some ways, the official in Mr. López Obrador’s government insisted. Even acquiescing to the Trump administration on the Migrant Protection Protocols was done strategically, according to the official and two others briefed on the plan. By allowing the program to start in San Diego and Tijuana, the Mexican officials argued, legal challenges to it in the United States go to the federal courts in the Northern District of California, which are generally seen as liberal.

NY Times open borders agenda disguises Mexican government complicity; ignores the battalions of invaders being transported on rail and flatbed trucks which could be stopped heading to the border or photos of what appear to be military passing out funds to the assembled thousands.

When they should be pushing this policy

WHY ARE WE ALLOWING CITIZENS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES
ENTER US ILLEGALLY GRANT THEM RIGHTS
THAT THEIR COUNTRY DENY US HAVING
WHEN WE ENTER THEIRS LEGALLY ???
It’s time we consider illegal entry by any person who is a non Mexican citizen illegally entering the United States through the US Mexican border a defacto Mexican citizen with limited Mexican constitutional rights subject to their laws while transiting. As well as any Mexican citizen doing so. Subject to reciprocal citizen treatment a citizen of the United States receives in Mexico through the Mexican constitution on citizenship .

Besides being unable to vote one must also be a citizen to own land and Mexico is very restrictive about granting citizenship. Because of that a US citizen besides not being able to vote,and cannot have title in their name to any land property in Mexico. And until that is changed the US and the affected state should consider making that reciprocal.prohibiting citizens of Mexico or countries with similar restrictions from doing both voting and land ownership.. .

Wait until Obrador surrenders to the cartels and legalizes drugs. It’s in the works now.

Even Edward Abbey famous advocacy of environmental issues, was in favor years ago for a Wall between Mexico and America...Abbey also known for his anarchist political views...Abby and Bolshevik Sanders had much in common in their bitterness about America, funny they both chose to live in the USA.......Abby’s reason for need of a wall, is not about crime, but the people.

I predict the cartels will soon be in chaos, and a whole lot of south americans indicted, leaving gang members flapping in the wind to be hunted like the dogs they are. Obrador might even come out smelling like a rose:

Wow! Another fairy tale from DEA comics. “Zeta 39” can’t be much of a super villain when there were only 31 original Los Zetas.
