Mexico Is Not Really An American Friend

“Left-wing Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador recently praised a visiting President Joe Biden: ‘Just imagine: There are 40 million Mexicans in the United States – 40 million who were born here in Mexico, (or) who are the children of people who were born in Mexico!’ Why wouldn’t Obrador be delighted? Since Biden took office in January 2021, America has allowed some 5-6 million illegal entries across its southern border. Obrador further congratulated the malleable Biden whom he sees as a kindred but complacent left-wing spirit: ‘You are the first president of the United States in a very long time that has not built even one meter of wall.’ Translated that means Mexico is delighted the United States now cares little about the security of its border, the disappearance of which is wonderful news for Mexico.” (01/19/23)
