The peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
Mexicans and Mexican-Americans feel that the physical wall proposed is just the materialization of the wall of untrust, malice and enmity that who is today in charge of the oval office has created with an irresponsible rhetoric to try to divide two nations that had been linked historically in good terms.
One thing it is very clear this is the very first time in 16 years that the White house had not arranged any official acts to show sympathy toward a nation that has been a crucial Ally of the United States in various important historic chapters of the bilateral relationship.
Thanks for your attention

Islamic terror cells have reportedly been shifting from the Middle East to the United-States-Mexico border in order to wage jihad on America, which many Islamic militants refer to as “the Great Satan.”
According to Jihad Watch (JW), the Muslim militants are partnering with Mexican drug cartels as they prepare to inflict precision attacks on strategic cities across the border in America. The government watchdog obtained its information about the movement from confidential American and Mexican law enforcement sources – data that corroborates its earlier findings that jihadists are exploiting President Barack Obama’s lenient border policies.
Mexican cartels fight for the lucrative corridors into the U.S. and the turf they win extends deep into both countries. The Drug Enforcement Administration’s maps give a general overview of which regions specific groups control and the U.S. can be seen broken up into Mexican cartel turf. From the Tijuana Cartel south of San Diego all the way to the Gulf Cartel south of Texas along the Gulf of Mexico, each region is controlled by organized crime group factions operating under the banner of a Mexican “cartel.”
Charles-Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte was the third
When a heavily armed and well-funded group fights to actively reduce the authority of the state, that's not a criminal enterprise. That's an insurgency. Mexico is not going to be able to truly gain ground against the cartels until it acknowledges that it's now fighting an insurgency. Just because the cartels are driven by money instead of ideology -- as with, say, the Taliban -- doesn't mean they can't use similar tactics and pose a similar threat.
