Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 12, 2018

After months of Donald Trump's controversial clampdown on immigration, Mexico's President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is planning his own border police force to stop undocumented immigrants, drugs and guns from crossing into the country from Central America, his future chief of public security said. Picked by Lopez Obrador, Alfonso Durazo stressed that the new force would be part of a larger regional development effort to ease the poverty and violence that lead so many Central Americans to cross into Mexico.

He is taking on a very difficult task, I wish him well but Mexico has been so corrupt for so long that I doubt he can succeed. America should take a lesson from Mexico as we allow the Koch brothers and others try to tear apart our civilization in the United States.

So AMLO is going to Construir Esa Pared, just on his own southern border, to keep the Central Americans from illegally immigrating to Mexico because it has become a big problem for Mexico.

Got it.

2: This article says nothing about Mexico building a wall on their southern border. It is about a police force.

Mexico has plenty of pretty white looking billionaires to help out with half of their country's poverty stricken citizens. All thanks to NAFTA

Are you really that dumb?

It's about keeping out those dirty immigrants from beautiful Mexico because it is a strain on their jobs, healthcare and crime.

Sound familiar?

Great story bro.

America already has a border patrol.

We don't need stormtroopers (ICE) or a wall.

Take that all that wasted money and use it to help Mexico.

6: Of course it sounds familiar. But you said AMLO is going to build a wall to do it. Why did you say that when the article made no mention of a wall?

#7 | Posted by donnerboy, Beyond the border, the only law enforcement agency to enforce immigration laws is ICE. On little thing they did last year, they interdicted enough Fentenyl that could kill every individual in the nation, TWICE.

Ending the drug war doesn't take wasted money. It just takes some paperwork and political will.

Money helps when money is the problem. Investing in Mexico would help their economy. We need to help them. Not waste money walling them off.

How DARE the Mexican President do anything to stop these people from crossing the border for asylum. It is very telling about the Liberal party when our President wants to do this, it's a huge human rights issue but when another country wants to do it, they give supporting words. You can literally replace any mention of Mexico in this article and put in America or Trump and this comment board would be 200 long, all bashing every sentence in the article.

They have the 15th highest GDP in the entire world per the IMF.

Their security problems are paramount and entirely the result of prohibition.

Mexico is a victim of America's war on drugs.

As a spill over of the drug war, a vast network of criminal economy is spreading amid vast corruption, impunity, and mounting deaths.

Ironically, the formation of Los Zetas came about indirectly from America's intervention in the drug war. The first members of Los Zetas created their organization not long after receiving counternarcotics training in Fort Benning, GA. The training was through the infamous School of the Americas program, now known as the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC).

Since America helped create this mess in Mexico don't you think America has some responsibility to help clean it up?

Mexico has huge potential and is very important to north america. We have to renegotiate a better deal that results in long term benefits for all, especially the half of Mexico living in real poverty. The wall was a negotiation meme imagined by waters and gilmore. It's all in your partisan head. These mexicanos really dont want to move they want improvement. Coming to usa iz out of desperation but it does sell papers boys and girls.

We do, our drug policies have ravaged countries globally. The only way to start making amends is end the drug war.

"The only way to start making amends is end the drug war."

Trump used to think that way, but now he realizes it's politically expedient to point to the existence of drug lords to justify his own draconian policies.

Nowadays, Trump would sic Jeff Sessions on the entire west coast if he thought it would help consolidate his grip on power. Which it just might.

Right now they're busy blacklisting Canadian cannabis entrepreneurs from travel to the US. It's some shameful ----.

How about having this New Mexican border police force inspect all trucks entering Mexico from the U.S. for possible illegal gun shipments?
