The operation in Chiapas coincided with a meeting of Mexican and U.S. officials at the White House on Wednesday to thrash out a deal that would avoid blanket tariffs on Mexico threatened by U.S. President Donald Trump last week.


Hey liberals, y'all tired of being wrong yet?

This story is hot on the heels of this recent thread:
Mexico comes to the table

Looks like president Trump's tactics are working. Mexico cannot afford to ignore their responsibility in this crisis. Allowing more illegals through their territory because they make money from it is no longer an acceptable arrangement.

From the link...


On Wednesday afternoon in Mexico City, police detained Irineo Mujica, director of the U.S.-Mexico migrant aid group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, and Cristobal Sanchez, a migrant rights activist, according to Alex Mensing, a coordinator with the group.

Pueblo Sin Fronteras has for several years guided annual caravans through Mexico, seeking to protect migrants and to advocate for their rights along a 2,000-mile trail ridden with criminals and corrupt officials who prey on lone travelers through kidnapping, extortion and other forms of assault.



I'm betting they are finding out right about now that Mexicans jails really suck.

Is that a bit of "winning" I smell in the air?

If only Trump had gone this route in the first place.

However I got to add. If you aren't targeting businesses that hire illegal laborers. Then you aren't fully addressing the issue.

You do have a valid point.

If only sanctuary cities upheld existing laws...

The lawsuit against Trump's EO that exempts them from Federal funds if they don't comply with existing laws hasn't wound its way to the Supreme Court yet.

But it will...

Jeez, I would have thought mexico would have put on a bit more of a show. Wait a day or so after the talks, put out some big talk for the CNN's of the world to trash trump and then silently when no one is looking fold up and do as he's told.

Nope, didn't even do any of that, they probably started making calls on the way out of the meeting.

Still, this is a good thing for both countries citizens.

I guess Mexico just wants to save our economy...

And Trump lied again! I'm still not tired of winning!

I wish Trump would close the border and just say, "# you" to everyone.

I guess next week(maybe 2) we'll get the good news that china will fold up as well and the tariff "war" will be over.

I'd expect about a 5 percent move up in the market at that point. Followed by a bunch of finance articles talking about how trump is ruining everything.

That was quick. Like lickety-split quick.

I am guessing talks were already underway before the announcement.

Regardless, this will be a better thing for all parties involved...except for those taking advantage of the those coming illegally. I will throw US employers who hire illegals in that category with the Coyotes and drug trafficers.

Going to be honest here. I didn’t think this meeting was going to solve crap.
Trumps team has proven me wrong.
Good on him.

That is a perfectly fair criticism. I haven't heard much on that. We'll see if there's a plan forthcoming.

I would go one step further...

Employers on both sides of the aisle use illegal aliens as cheap labor... this should not be a partisan issue and those people need thrown under the bus using existing laws.

However, the political party that is "illegal immigration over citizens" because it expands their voting base and thus their power should be stopped ASAP.

Americans of both sides of the political aisle need to understand the dangers of that and act accordingly at the ballot box.

While the ballot box still has any measurable meaning.

Because once the ballot box stops working, the alternative isn't going to be pretty.

Yes, and the mom and pop type of businesses I grew up around suffer the most to undercutting of illegal labor. It use to be the Blacks in my area where the brick layers because they were the best. Now they don't work as bricklayers because it is who can do the cheapest job. The cheap labor working for their competitors ruined a good business. Sometimes the craftsmanship is OK and sometimes not. Like in Ahn Rands book Atlas Shrugged, the elite are pulling down the quality of work to be 'fair' to the 'poor'. I have my doubts if that is what they think they mean to do.

Those groups that go down there and teach these people how to game the asylum system are despicable. They clog up the system for people who have legitimate asylum claims, and then pretend they're the compassionate side. They support policies that encourage people to abuse children and use them as bargaining chips so they can be a "family unit" at the border.

Why would anyone take these actions? Votes, that's the only logical answer.

My father ran his own construction business for many years in California, Washington and Oregon.

In my opinion over the last 40 years or so the quality of craftsmanship has gone straight to hell because of illegal immigrant labor.

So yes, long-term it is just destructive and has not helped anyone.

Well, anyone but the shady employer.

They need to pay it back.

Mexico has a declining economy. Tariffs on what they want to sell here in the USA would make things worse, as our tariffs on their products increases.

The same nutjobs who are wringing their hands over Mexico tariffs, did the same with China tariffs. Barrons ran an article last week about economists and financial experts being "miffed" over how the China tariffs aren't hurting America's economy.

The MSM and "experts" are composed mostly of arrogant wimps who view everything through the lens of "yesterday" and "tradition".

One former Reagan/Bush advisor just told Anderson Cooper that President Donald Trump shouldn't be involved in dignified D-Day events, because he has no dignity. Can you believe that?!
