Felix Salgado Macedonia, a leader in the social-democratic political party National Regeneration Movement in Mexico (also known as the MORENA Party) Twitted a threat at President Trump and the United States on Friday, May 31. Salgado was responding to Trump's announcement to place tariffs on Mexican goods coming into the U.S.
Salgado Twitted, "don't even think we're afraid. We Mexicans are in our own land (California, Nevada, Texas, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, and Wyoming). We will recover the land you stole. Long live Andres Manuel Obrador Lopez." A couple of obscenities were included in the message.
This more evidence of the radical anti-America politics that have always existed in Mexico, but that has bubbled into the open with Mexican President Lopez Obrador. The myth of "occupied Mexico" is prevalent among leftist in Mexico and in the U.S. who want to justify open borders and Mexican and Chicano nationalism.
Just hours after President Trump announced tariffs on Mexican imports because of Mexico’s lack of help in stopping illegal immigration, Jesus Seade, Mexico’s deputy foreign minister for North America said his country would work to enforce its immigration laws. It appears Trump’s threat may have had some effect in getting Mexico’s attention in addressing the border crisis.
Seade stated, “To avoid these flows that go from Central America to the United States in large numbers I think we can make progress with traditional mechanisms and better exercise existing rules.” He declined to give further details of what more Mexico could do to stem immigration, citing the negotiations in Washington.
However, Seade said Mexico is NOT working on a “safe 3rd country” classification where asylum seekers could lodge claims instead coming into the U.S. This safe 3rd country is what is desperately needed to stop waves of as Central Americans claiming asylum.
On Thursday, May 30, Trump said he would introduce the tariffs starting on June 10 at 5% and raise them higher if Mexico did not substantially halt illegal immigration.
Prince George’s County Maryland, a sanctuary county that has boated “protecting” illegal aliens, has admitted it ignored a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer and released an illegal alien with connection to the Salvadoran gang, MS-13. Joel Ernesto Escobar, age 17, had been accused of attempted murder but convicted of conspiracy to commit robbery in 2018 but released, has been implicated in a gang-related killing in April 2019.
Andrew Cephas with the PG County corrections department said Wednesday, May 22, that they had released Escobar. Cephas retracted his statement from Tuesday when he said that the department transferred custody of the teen to the state, and when he also claimed that the county notifies ICE of impending releases.
On Wednesday he admitted that PG County does NOT notify ICE except for the most severe crimes. However, incredibly, PG County did not consider Escobar’s charged with attempted murder in 2018 severe enough to make him a priority for the county to turn over for deportation.
There a report of another child that died while in custody of the U.S. government, and the Democrats and liberal press are having an emotional meltdown blaming President Trump and his immigration policies. The entire border crisis is the fault of Americans excusing and rewarding illegal immigration, and children are the victims.
The 10-year-old girl from El Salvador died on September 29 at the Children’s Hospital of Omaha, but her death was not made known until now. She was sick when she was taken into custody and held at a facility in San Antonio on March 4, 2018, in a “medically fragile” state. She was eventually transferred to Ohama, NE to be close to her, where she died on September 29 at the Children’s Hospital of Omaha.
In another example of the leftist rebellion against law and order, King County (Seattle) Executive Dow Constantine issued an order pressuring companies that fuel planes, to stop servicing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) flights or lose their contracts with the county. Bryan Wilcox, ICE’s acting field operations director in Seattle, said, “state and local efforts thwarting ICE operations serve only to create additional security concerns and add significant delays and costs to U.S. taxpayers.”
ICE has deported about 34,000 illegal aliens over the last decade from the King County airport, but a recent politically motivated study done by the University of Washington’s liberal Center for Human Rights criticized the use of the airport, and Constantine issued the directive to airport businesses.
Tanya Roman, an ICE spokesperson, issued a press release detailing some of the illegal immigrants deported with charter flights from the King County Airport. The list includes a Mexican citizen wanted for human trafficking, a Honduran man accused of rape and murder and a Guatemalan man charged with torture and murder.
