From the Department of How Stupid Do They Think We Are?:
The Mexican government on Tuesday expressed its “concern” over the decision by Texas authorities to send 1,000 National Guard troops to the border to help stem the massive arrival of undocumented child migrants from Central America.
“Attention to the immigration phenomenon must be paid from a long-term regional perspective and based on the principles of good neighborliness and shared responsibility,” the Foreign Relations Secretariat said in a statement.
“The strategy for responding in an effective and humane manner to this phenomenon includes the necessary shared responsibility among the countries of origin, transit and destination of migration flows,” the statement continued.
The secretariat declared its commitment to the protection of the migrants’ human rights and the orchestration of “specific actions directed at the most vulnerable, including unaccompanied children and teenagers.”
The secretariat emphasized that Mexico had opted for a strategy favoring dialogue and cooperation, and it is working “with the countries of Central America to improve conditions in the medium and long term that contribute to the development of that region and strengthen its prosperity.”
Because everybody knows that Mexico is a world leader when it comes to human rights. I’m sure that it has nothing to do with the fact that until those people cross over the border to the United States they are Mexico’s problem. Because everybody knows that Mexico is a paradise on Earth than no one wants to leave and Mexico is famous for strictly enforcing their laws that make it a crime to illegally enter the United States from Mexico.
What a bunch of mierda del toro!
But wait! There’s more!
A foolproof plan to ease pressure on the border that’s currently being considered by the White House. Why force kids to make a dangerous trip through Mexico only to end up as illegal immigrants in the United States when we could go to them, grant them legal status, and send them north to America ourselves? It’s so crazy it just. might. work.
It’s been lovely but I have to scream now.
