America wants a wall to keep out illegal immigrants that not only come over here ILLEGALLY, but then proceed to bring drugs, break laws, steal, kill, and rape Americans. Yes I am aware that not EVERY alien is a violent criminal, but just being here without following right procedures still makes them a criminal.
Now top Mexican officials are considering an “American Entry Fee” for people coming into Mexico from the United States. This seems to be in retaliation to our plans for a border wall.
Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray, in a meeting with Mexico’s top legislators, called Trump’s plan an “unfriendly, hostile” act, and called on his colleagues to consider the entry fee.
“We could explore — not necessarily a visa, that could impede a lot of people from coming to Mexico — but we could perhaps (have) a fee associated with entry,” Videgaray said. “This is something that I’m sure will be part of our discussion, and I believe we can find points of agreement.”
Videgaray went on to say that Mexico would not pay a cent toward the wall. He said if talks between the U.S. and Mexico fail to satisfy both countries, the Mexican government would consider reducing security cooperation.
“If the negotiation on other themes — immigration, the border, trade — isn’t satisfactory to Mexico’s interests, we will have to review our existing cooperation,” Videgaray said. “This would be especially in the security areas … and that involves the national immigration agency, the federal police and of course, the armed forces.”
Trump has asked Congress to include a down payment on the wall in the spending bill but because of scrutiny from both sides, President Trump announced Monday that he’d be willing to wait until September to revisit the issue of funding; however, his stance on Mexico’s role in paying for the wall hasn’t changed.
Okay so, Mexico throws a tantrum and creates an entry fee. They do realize that people are LEAVING Mexico to come here. We aren’t sneaking into their country. Do they really think they will be hurting our feelings by charging us to enter? The way I see it, it’s a bit ridiculous but it will only hurt their economy. Not ours.
