AFTER PRESIDENT Trump put the fear of God into our nincompoop president who’s known by his initials, AMLO, Mexico ceased to be such a straight-through conduit for illegal aliens coming from Central America bound for the United States border.
Many are currently housed in a miserable detention center in Chiapas while their requests for asylum in Mexico pass through a labyrinthine process that is not intended to be smooth. Mexico clearly wants them to go back where they came from.
And that is what they should do.
Asylum from what? Lousy economic conditions. That’s what.
I sympathize with these people. There, but for the grace of God, etc. There is no easy solution to their plight, but ignoring laws and sneaking into another country is not the answer, and that is exactly what they planned to do on the U.S. border, and what they’ve done for decades until there were so many illegals that Americans had it up to here, and that led, to a huge degree, to Donald Trump’s winning the presidency.
It was likely the main thing that installed him in the Oval Office. That and his fun, no-nonsense, personality. If you’re an open-borders advocate, you’ve got yourself to blame for the Trump presidency. The culprit is you, amigo.
America simply cannot toss open the door to the world’s poor. It is a noble aim — Christian even — but an absolutely unrealistic one. The American taxpayer is not the disorganized world’s sugar daddy.
But America was built by immigrants, you say! Quite so, but during the days of Ellis Island they came legally, and they supported themselves after settling somewhere. Today’s much-used buffet of taxpayer-funded social programs did not exist. This is a crucial difference.
