According to Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, there are roughly 10,000 migrants headed toward the United States border on a daily basis. Obrador stated that thousands of these individuals are hailing from other countries and taking a route through his country to reach our own. Many of them are from South America, looking to escape from legal trouble or from the oppression of socialistic governments. Ironically, they come here to get away, yet help vote in politicians who want to establish policies exactly like the ones that made them flee their homes in the first place.
According to The Daily Wire’s latest report:
About 6,000 migrants a day have come into Mexico from Guatemala in the last week, contributing to the surge at the U.S. border, Obrador said.
Obrador criticized the U.S. for economic sanctions on Cuba and Venezuela, saying the sanctions are contributing to the stream of migrants heading to America. Many of the migrants currently arriving at the southern border are fleeing economic and political upheaval in Venezuela.
Last week, the Mexican president also criticized the U.S. for giving large amounts of aid to Ukraine, saying the U.S. could instead invest in developing the poor Latin American countries from which many migrants come.
“They don’t do anything,” Obrador went on to say of the U.S. last Friday. Or, and here me out on this one, maybe we could just, oh, I don’t know, take care of our own people, build a wall, and let the rest of the world figure it out for themselves. That sounds like a plan to me. Obrador seems to think poor Latin American countries are entitled to the money we work for.
“It’s more, a lot more, what they authorize for the war in Ukraine than what they give to help with poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean,” the Mexican president remarked.
U.S. Border Patrol agents have been struggling hard the last few months as the influx of migrants trying to come into the country has increased dramatically.
In August, just two months ago, there were close to 233,000 migrant encounters at the border, which makes it the highest August ever recorded. In July, there were a total of 184,000 encounters. That’s a massive increase in the matter of a few weeks.
“Last month’s numbers are also a significant rise from August a year ago, when there were only 204,000 migrant encounters. September’s numbers are already tens of thousands of encounters higher than last year as well,” the report continued. “Some border communities are so impacted by the problem that they have sent migrants up north.”
The mayor of El Paso, Texas, a Democrat, stated in September that the city is at a “breaking point.” It chartered a total of five buses to take illegal migrants to major sanctuary cities such as New York, Chicago, and Denver last weekend. The city was seeing a total of 2,000 migrants a day last month, which led to shelters in the area hitting capacity.
There’s a bunch of simple solutions to this problem. Build the wall, enforce the law.
