    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...

To hear them tell it, Mexicans are marching in mass protests in U.S. cities and the U.S. is targeting ALL illegal aliens, not just criminals.

But in a case that he said had far-reaching implications about federal policy regarding Dreamers, and which has drawn the concern of the Mexican government and immigration activists nationwide, Chief Magistrate Judge James Donohue took the unusual step of requiring that a bond hearing in immigration court be held within a week.

Why in hell is he campaigning for president of Mexico on American soil? That's the elephant in the room. When you're campaigning for an office you naturally go where the voters are and Obrador went to Los Angeles. This reinforces many of President Trumps talking points about illegal immigration to include that millions of illegals cast votes in the election, and that there are way more...

President Donald Trump has harshly criticized Mexico’s government and its trade relations with the U.S., putting the economic ties between the two nations in jeopardy. To be kind, the ideas were poorly received south of the border. The international political banter overshadows big business that...

    The much-needed reforms initiated by the Trump Administration are met with two types of criticisms. The first and least used is that the reform is bad policy, for one reason or another. The second often-used type is that the proposal causes negative emotions, bad vibes, and sends inappropriate messages. Nowhere is this more evident than in arguments against building a wall on our southern border and implementing stricter border enforcement. From a purely practical standpoint, increased border control is vitally important for both Mexico and the America. Both countries benefit by slowing the flow of narcotics across the border. There...

The Associated Press and a Mexican news website, Aristegui Noticias, reported earlier in the day that Trump had humiliated Peña Nieto during...

    Memo from Justin Trudeau to all staff: “If Trump calls, I’M NOT IN!” And who could blame our plucky PM? In a dizzying few hours this week, Donald Trump has rewritten the book on American diplomacy. Rewritten? Hell, he’s ripped it up, burned it, spit on it and flung it in the swamp. There is more Marquis de Sade than Marquess of Queensberry about the Donald’s statesmanship. First, he reportedly hangs up on Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull in a spat over refugees. Turnbull insists America take 1,250 folks from Syria and Iraq who are now in Australia’s off-shore island...

    NAFTA, since its inception has been one of the most controversial trade agreements in the world. In its essence, it was bound to create some disturbances and radical shifts in the economies of the three nations- Canada, USA, and Mexico. However, NAFTA is now mostly discussed because of a seemingly unavoidable trade war between Mexico and US, an unfortunate event for regional and global trade if it happens. President Donald Trump has repeatedly spoke about building a wall along the Mexico border that would keep illegal migrants from Mexico away. Trump is right in suggesting that Mexico has taken more...

    Philip Haney, a retired Homeland Security officer who co-authored the whistleblower book “See Something Say Nothing,” said the global Islamic movement led by the extremist Muslim Brotherhood is anticipating that they will encounter a far less friendly regime in Washington and they are filing some of their most militant assets into place. “They’re laying the groundwork on the response to the new administration. And what is that response going to be? Attacks,” Haney told WND. “Like we’re seeing around the world, generated from the same sort of activity we’re seeing here. This is a turning point in terms of the...

    Feb 1 A Chinese-Mexican tie-up on Wednesday unveiled plans to invest over $200 million in a Mexican car plant in a welcome sign of confidence even as threats from U.S. President Donald Trump have paralyzed investment plans by U.S. companies. Mexico's Giant Motors and China's Anhui Jianghuai Automobile (JAC Motor), along with distributor Chori Company Limited, will invest more than 4.4 billion pesos ($212.46 million) in an existing plant to build SUVs in the central state of Hidalgo, state governor Omar Fayad told a news conference. Up to 10,000 vehicles could be produced at the plant within the next four...
  • Media Advance New Narrative: “Mean Trump” With Phone Call Leaker in White House

    The latest Mostly Swamp Media (MSM) talking point is rather funny. Keeping up with the continuing technique of ‘media reports on media reports‘, today the preferred undermining narrative is to sell a tale of White House leakers.The Associated Press (AP) is transparently still upset about their first-question White House press decorum being violated by the vulgarian Spice; and on the heels of the deplorable decision to allow common-folk in fly-over country to Skype in questions to the daily press briefing (which began today), the AP publishes an account of bad hombre’ Trump talking to the magnanimous defender of all...

    Mexico said Wednesday that the Associated Press’ account of a call Friday between President Trump and his Mexican counterpart is inaccurate. “The assertions that you make about said conversation do not correspond to the reality of it,” the Mexican government said in a statement on the wire service’s reporting. “The tone was constructive,” according to a statement from Mexico’s foreign relations department, “and it was agreed by the presidents to continue working and that the teams will continue to meet frequently to construct an agreement that is positive for Mexico and for the United States.”

    According to a transcript obtained by AP of the phone call which took place on Friday morning between President Trump and his Mexican counterpart, Enrique Pena Nieto, and which was intended to patch things up between the new president and his Mexican peer a day after Pena Nieto called off his visit to the US, Trump threatened to send U.S. troops to stop "bad hombres down there" unless the Mexican military does more to control them itself. The excerpt of the call did not make clear who exactly Trump considered "bad hombres," - drug cartels, immigrants, or both - or...
