When Mexican officals help people illegally enter the U.S., why does the media accuse Trump of being aggressive.
It they want us to honor their laws, why do Mexican officials help Hondurans cross their country into ours? Yesterday, President Donald Trump posted on Twitter: “Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!”

President Trump was actually understating the problem. While I’m not sure if it is a policy of the Mexican government, Mexican officials are actively aiding and abetting illegal immigrants.
The Washington Examiner reports, “Mexico aids Easter invasion of over 1,000 illegals into US.”
Mexican officials have aided a “Holy Week” caravan of over 1,000 migrants headed to the U.S. border to demand Easter asylum, according to reports.
Mostly Hondurans, they posted celebration videos on Facebook and chanted “We are migrants. We are not criminals. We are workers.”
According to an account from the Center for Immigration Studies, Mexican authorities have allowed the migrants to drive north “with relative ease.”[…]
Locals have also provided supplies along the way.
Yet the media uses headlines to suggest that Trump is being “more aggressive” without mentioning Mexico’s behavior.
President Donald Trump on Sunday explicitly linked his proposal to build a barrier between the U.S. and Mexico to ongoing NAFTA negotiations, as he renewed a warning that the flow of illicit drugs and undocumented immigrants from the country “must stop.”[…]
Trump also took aim at the outlines of a deal to legalize the status of legions of illegal immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children, and called on Congressional Republicans to exercise a “nuclear option” to toughen immigration. Last fall, Trump canceled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, colloquially referred to as DACA.
Then the story says, “the president has gotten more aggressive in his negotiating tactics.” When Mexican officials have started helping and encouraging Hondurans to break U.S. laws, perhaps Trump SHOULD get more aggressive!
