Mexico does not want its citizens back from US

Wall Street Journal:
Influential Mexicans are pushing an aggressive and perhaps risky strategy to fight a likely increase in deportations of their undocumented compatriots in the U.S.: jam U.S. immigration courts in hopes of causing the already overburdened system to break down.

The proposal calls for ad campaigns advising migrants in the U.S. to take their cases to court and fight deportation if detained. “The backlog in the immigration system is tremendous,” said former Foreign Minister Jorge Castañeda. The idea is to double or triple the backlog, “until [U.S. President Donald] Trump desists in this stupid idea,” he added.

Mr. Castañeda is part of a group of Mexican officials, legislators, governors and public figures planning to meet with migrant groups Saturday in Phoenix to lay out plans to confront the Trump administration’s deportation policy.

Mexico’s government hasn’t endorsed the strategy or the group’s Phoenix mission. But it recently allocated some $50 million to assist undocumented migrants facing deportation, and President Enrique Peña Nieto has instructed the country’s 50 consulates in the U.S. to defend migrants.

Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said late Thursday it has intensified efforts to protect Mexican migrants, “foreseeing the hardening of measures by immigration authorities in the U.S., as well as possible constitutional violations during raids or in due process.”

Several senators in the newly engaged group—called Monarca after the butterflies that migrate across North America—plan to meet with Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) to highlight the risks they say Mr. Trump’s proposed policies pose to Mexican-U.S. relations.

“Mexico is helping on the fight on terror and that collaboration should be put under review given the attitude of Trump,” said Armando Ríos Piter, a senator with the leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution attending the weekend meetings. “It’s important to make clear to them the possible consequences if Trump keeps a hostile and aggressive stance.”

If Mexicans want to be US citizens, perhaps the US should propose annexation of Mexico.  While this is not a serious proposal it does put the issue in perspective.  Mexico has been shipping it citizens who cannot find work in Mexico to the US for generations.

What is worse is that it has also facilitated the migration of people from failed Central American countries too.  This suggests it is trying to hurt the US deliberately.  There is something seriously wrong with the Mexican culture that it cannot produce jobs internally for its population.

Add to this cultural rot, the inability to suppress the criminal insurgency by drug cartels and the countries is a mess.  It opposes Trump's wall because it does not want to fix its problems internally.  If it starts refusing to take back its criminal illegal aliens the US will know that Mexico is at war with the US.
