Mexico And Guatemala: A Deal Made

The Examiner presents another reason to believe that the “humanitarian crisis” at the border only exists because of collusion between the Mexican and Guatemalan governments, and “likely” the United States, as well. They base this on a joint announcement made by Mexican and Guatemalan leaders earlier this week:

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina held a joint press conference in Playas de Catazaja, Mexico, to officially announce an agreement to make it easier for those making the illegal journey to the United States from Central America, to cross into Mexico.

The Southern Border Program to Improve Passage, will provide for more border checkpoints along Mexico’s border with Guatemala, and offer more protection and even emergency medical care to those making their way north. The illegal aliens will receive a so-called Regional Visitor’s Card, according to El Universal.

Officially, the program will grant the cards to only illegal aliens from Guatemala and Belize, allowing them to remain in Mexico’s southern states for 72 hours (more than enough time to reach the U.S./Mexican border by train). While, those two countries share a border with Mexico, the program will undoubtedly benefit anyone who makes it to the border, which would explain why our Border Patrol stations are currently overflowing with illegal aliens from El Salvador and Honduras as well.

The program will also give special protection and even financial assistance to unaccompanied minors now pouring across our border. Of course, these efforts, chiefly by the Mexican government, will only increase the number of illegal aliens coming to this country by the thousands, now on a daily basis.

Regarding the goals of the program, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said it’s twofold: To protect the immigrants crossing through Mexico on their way to the US or back to their countries, and improve the international crossing points, in order to improve the development and security of the region.

  2. See what a great job Sheriff Joe Biden did by going down there? Who else could be sent down there to convince these countries not to send people to the US, and get this kind of result?

  3. Should have instructed Joe Biden to get Guatemala to send as many refugees as possible, then maybe we could’ve gotten the actual results we wanted.

  4. I am beginning to think that conflict with Mexico is coming in the middle term. The influx into the US is encouraged not only to rid themselves of the unemployed, but for long-term strategic reasons.

  5. I said this in a thread the other day. There was no way to enter Mexico through its southern border without collusion. This stinks!

  6. Jeez, why can’t they just man up and invade us militarily instead of squirting out children to run over the border?

    I am beginning to think that conflict with Mexico is coming in the middle term. The influx into the US is encouraged not only to rid themselves of the unemployed, but for long-term strategic reasons.

    In 1959 a movie was released entitled “The Mouse That Roared” starring Peter Sellers and Jean Seberg. It was about the world’s tiniest country, the Duchy of Grand Fenwick, that had fallen on hard fiduciary times. Its economy was in a shambles due to someone having duplicated its only export, a certain fine wine. The country’s politicians racked their brains trying to find a way out of the seemingly unresolvable monetary crisis. Then someone came up with an idea. “All we have to do,” he said, “is to lose a war to the United States and our problems are over.”

  9. These actions are criminal, their own people should revolt.

    The Mouse that Roared was funny,
    we even did it in college, our dorm seceded from the US, declared war on the US, lobbied to join the UN so the US could have a voting bloc of 2 to counter the Soviet legion.
    I have the papers… somewhwere

  10. But didn’t Fenwick win that war because of their acquisition of a secret and powerful weapon?

  12. Dumping their poorest and sickest citizens in our country. This is all part of our Jackass-In-Chief’s plan. overwhelm the systems: immigration, healthcare, welfare, etc. A legacy of lawless incompetence.

    Mr. Feets – It’s a Rope-A-Dope strategy. Obama’s the Dope.

  21. We should have kept all of mexico.

    I’d settle for Baja California. It would make the wall shorter, too.

  22. The Dear Leader is so ineffectual banana republic hacks are public telling him how they will help their excess to invade the US. And they are doing so after a long day at the beach and several cervezas frias. And economically the hard currency of remittances(which the Latin kleptocracies all get a piece of) keep their awful ruling class in dollars. What these Latin leaders may not grasp his WHEN (no longer if) the dollar goes in the toilet the remittances will be much less lucrative.Spent some time in western Europe the last few weeks; the dollar is tanking in a very bad way.

    Thanks, Obama. Math is hard. Better to take gender and ethnic studies ; you too could be president.

  24. So when do we acknowledge that nations to our south have declared war on us and are continuing their invasion? Buehler? Anyone?

  25. Want to stop it tomorrow?

    Pass legislation prohibiting financial transfers to any country that doesn’t cooperate in repatriating its nationals caught at our borders.

    The flood will stop the next day. Over $50 billion a year is sent to Mexico and Central American countries from their nationals in the USA.

    Estragon (ada867)

  26. There are any number of simple and effective solutions to this. The problem is the Dems want the flood of new voters (no need to even wait for citizenship, dontcha know), and the Chamber of Commerce is pressuring the Establishment GOP for “comprehensive” (read: amnesty and open border) immigration reform, leaving nobody but the great majority of voters who are not the big donors to get upset. Pisses me off royally.
