    Mexicans who help build President Donald Trump’s planned border wall would be acting immorally and should be deemed traitors, the Catholic Archdiocese of Mexico said on Sunday, turning up the heat on a simmering dispute over the project. In a provocative editorial, the country’s biggest Archdiocese sought to increase pressure on the government to take a tougher line on companies aiming to profit from the wall, which has strained relations between Trump and the Mexican government. “Any company intending to invest in the wall of the fanatic Trump would be immoral, but above all, its shareholders and owners should be...

    Cafes, churches and playing fields are quieter than usual, as undocumented immigrants lay low amid the crackdown United States, New York - With such slogans as "Resiste" and "No Deportaciones" emblazoned on the walls, there is little doubt that La Morada, a restaurant in a gritty district of New York, is more than your average taco-serving Mexican diner. Sure, their Oaxaca-style tortilla, mole sauce and steaming hot chocolate delight locals. But the Saavedra family that owns and runs the eatery sees itself as a Bronx bastion against a revived immigration crackdown under United States President Donald Trump. "There's obviously a...

    Mexico's government on Tuesday warned Mexican companies that it would not be in their best "interests" to participate in the construction of U.S. President Donald Trump's border wall, though there will be no legal restrictions or sanctions to stop them if they tried. While some Mexican companies stand to potentially benefit from the controversial infrastructure project, residents south of the border view the wall and Trump's repeated calls to have Mexico pay for it as offensive. That is putting public pressure on firms to abstain from participating. "We're not going to have laws to restrict (companies), but I believe considering...

    A Mexican newspaper condemned American spring breakers who reportedly chanted "Build that wall!" during a family show on a tourist ship off Cancun. In an editorial Friday, the Yucatan Times called the singing during a "Pirate Ship" attraction an act of "xenophobia and discrimination against Mexicans within their own country." The newspaper added that the "racist hymn" wasn't an isolated incident and that numerous complaints about spring breakers have been lodged by Mexican tourist industry workers. The paper referred to a social media post by Anaximandro Amable, a Peruvian who was aboard the ship: "Today I was with Suly, my...

    A Southern California brewery has successfully tested a beer using treated sewage water. Stone Brewing, a large craft brewing operation headquartered in Escondido, presented its Full Circle Pale Ale to curious customers at an event Thursday in San Diego. The new ale is made using recycled, treated sewage water and is part of San Diego's plan, 'Pure Water San Diego,' to get a third of its water from recycled sources by 2021. And the verdict for the brew, which some have dubbed 'toilet to tap,' seemed to be quite positive, SF Gate reported.

President Trump noted that this deal, which he claims “is his YUGEst real estate deal ever” is a win-win for everyone involved. The two billionaires, who have clashed in the past, set aside their differences and negotiated the deal in which Mexico will pay for the wall, in exchange for the State of California.

Professor Kotsko detailed his beliefs in an article titled, "How will we know it’s over?"

    As was the case throughout the presidential campaign, more Americans continue to oppose (62%) than favor (35%) building a wall along the entire U.S. border with Mexico. And while President Donald Trump has said the U.S. would make Mexico pay for the wall, the public is broadly skeptical: 70% think the U.S. would ultimately pay for the wall, compared with just 16% who think Mexico would pay for it. The proposal to build the wall was one of several contentious issues that loomed over a meeting between Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Mexican officials this week to discuss immigration...

    The Mexican government is strongly controlling the optics of a visit today by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and DHS Secretary General John Kelly. [An upcoming press conference live stream is embedded below ] Mexico fears the projection of U.S. strength will undermine their position. President Trump is taking a hard-line approach with Mexico’s central policies that have allowed, and in many cases facilitated, vast numbers of economic migrants to travel into the U.S. Trump’s pending policies are going to be weighted heavily on the feedback he receives from T-Rex and General Kelly’s visit.

    President Enrique Peña Nieto, of Mexico and his Foreign Minister have said that they will refuse to cooperate with Donald Trump’s immigration reforms. These reforms include deporting illegal Mexican migrants who commit crimes in the U.S. Apparently, to the Mexican government and the U.S’s homegrown “Liberals”, this is beyond the pale. Let’s be very clear. There is a case to be made for allowing illegal migrants to stay in the USA. It may be a case that is incredibly unfair to those who live in the U.S legally, but still, there is a case. However, in what twisted fantasy land...

    Mexico reacted with anger on Wednesday to what one official called "hostile" new U.S. immigration guidelines hours before senior Trump administration envoys began arriving in Mexico City for talks on the volatile issue. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security unveiled plans on Tuesday to consider almost all illegal immigrants subject to deportation, and will seek to send many of them to Mexico if they entered the United States from there, regardless of nationality. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson landed in Mexico City on Wednesday afternoon. He was due to be joined by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly later for...

    Mexico’s drug cartels earn billions of dollars in profits as they funnel heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana into drug-hungry countries, including the United States. Crime, death and ruined lives flow right along with those drugs to places as varied as New York City, West Virginia coal country, Albuquerque, Española and western Europe. Despite the efforts of law enforcement, the cartels rival international corporations in size and reach. The drugs they peddle are cheaper and more plentiful than ever before, claiming thousands of victims every year. The Albuquerque Journal today begins a six-part investigative report on a criminal enterprise wreaking havoc...

    Yes I want to use the U.S. judicial system—the immigration courts in particular-- to jam, to backlog it so perhaps President Trump will change his mind and stop this ridiculous policy-- this unpleasant and hostile policy-- of deporting people..”  (Jorge Castañeda to Tucker Carlson, Fox News, 2/14/17.)   The “ridiculous policy”consists of President Trump’s executive orders to deport lawbreaking foreigners, mostly Mexicans.   In other words, this “unpleasant and hostile policy” consists of Presidential candidate Trump’s fulfillment of his campaign pledges and of President Trump’s fulfillment of his pledge with his hand on the Bible on Jan. 20th—to uphold the U.S. Constitution....
