Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, September 14, 2018

Remember President Donald Trump's insistence that Mexico would pay for his border wall? Well, it seems it's the U.S. that'll be shelling out millions to its southern neighbor in exchange for helping Trump in his crusade against immigration. The Trump administration recently sent a notice to Congress saying it plans to divert $20 million allocated for foreign assistance to help Mexico deport up to 17,000 undocumented immigrants from the country, according to a New York Times report published late Wednesday.

Not that it is even just a morally wrong issue, since it's Mexico - how can this possibly go wrong?

that's about $1200 bucks apiece...stand at the border offering a thousand cash and you'd have people lined up to go back

Pretty good planning, at least. This is the type of planning you have to do in the 21st century. If Trump were forcing Mexico to remove their people, bleeding hearts would ask how come we aren't paying for it. Obviously they will still find something to whine about but it's best to try to figure out what you can do to get rid of as many whiny opportunities as possible.

this 21st century planning you speak of..."Mexico will pay to build the wall", is that part of the plan?

Forcing Mexico to remove their people...the idiot trump can't even 'force' his own appointees not to testify against his traitorous ass

It would probably be cheaper if Trump would just give Mexico money to build prison camps like we do here. If you deport them they can just turn around and come back, put them in cages they can't go anywhere.

the trump cartel gets congress to approve the $20 million..it's paid to Mexico (supposedly)...17,000, more or less, undocumented are pulled from jails and prisons and deported (supposedly)...within 6 months there's a new product sold by the trump brand..' SOLIENTO VERDE '.

So the President lied to us about Mexico paying for the wall and everything else?

And you love it?

Good to know.

"If Trump were forcing Mexico..."

Trump couldn't "force" his way out of a wet paper bag.

The question is... Will Mexico accept Rubles?

℞€₱µℬ₤ℹ︎☾₤◎w∩₷ only put up walls of stupid.

They are trying to deport the descendants of people that have migrated up and down... working the lands.... of the Americas for at least 15,000 years. I don't care how many walls you put up you can't stop the ebbs and flows of this migration it without mass annihilation... at your peril.

All those kids you can't find their parents?
What are you pigs going to do?
Exterminate them or raise them as your own?

You can't stop a force of nature

"They are trying to deport the descendants of people that have migrated up and down... working the lands.... of the Americas"

There's a legal way to do it. There's a legal way to for employers to hire migrant farm workers. This protects everyone, and ensures that migrant and immigrant workers have protection, freedom from fear, health and wage benefits, paid taxes, access to healthcare, freedom to move about without fear of retribution, protection from unfair and unsafe working conditions, the list is endless.

If you care about these people, then you want legal immigration. But if your only concern is cheap brown lawnmowers, hotel maids, and fruit/veggie pickers, then you should admit you don't really care about the people involved...just the politics of it.

Quit using them as your pawns.

People who run across the border illegally are not 'fellow Americans'.

We have immigration laws and procedures for legal entry, work permits, foreign students, tourists, etc.

Get off your political soapbox.
