Meeting With Mexico Cancelled

“If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting,” tweeted Trump Thursday morning.

In response, Meeting Cancelled said Mexican President Peña Nieto.


Trump Moves Shake Deep U.S.-Mexico Relationship

The Wall Street Journal reports Trump Moves Shake Deep U.S.-Mexico Relationship.

“I want to emphasize that we will be working in partnership with our friends in Mexico to improve safety and economic opportunity on both sides of the border,” Mr. Trump said after announcing plans to build a border wall and crack down on immigration—pledges that have provoked widespread anger in Mexico.

Yet Mr. Trump followed his comments by reading a roll of Americans he said were killed by illegal immigrants.

And his actions are starting to reverse a quarter-century of bipartisan policies aimed at fostering greater integration between the two neighbors.

The new policies are prompting a backlash in Mexico, where officials are threatening retaliation, and where the new U.S. stance is stoking a volatility in Mexican politics that could fuel a counter-Trump populist movement of its own, injecting still more uncertainty into the bilateral relationship.

“President Trump: your wall assaults us, and leaves the Statue of Liberty as a relic,” Andrés Manuel López Obrador, head of the leftist Morena party, who leads in the polls for the 2018 Mexican presidential election, said on Twitter.

Regional trade has more than tripled to more than $1.1 trillion—with some industrial components crossing back and forth over the border as part of the regional supply chain—while U.S. foreign direct investment has grown sevenfold to more than $100 billion, the report said. The U.S. is Mexico’s largest trading partner, while Mexico is No. 3 for the U.S., behind Canada and China.

Railroads Union Pacific Corp. and Kansas City Southern have spent billions of dollars upgrading cross-border infrastructure in recent years, while a million square feet of industrial real estate is under construction around Laredo, according to Colliers International, a real-estate brokerage, and industrial construction activity hit its highest level since 2008 in Tijuana, Mexico last year, according to CBRE Group Inc., another brokerage. Most of these projects were planned before the election.

The above article is from yesterday. The word for today is “cancelled”.

Collapsing trade is not a good thing, for anyone. And our trade has been given away.

    Good, lets start keeping these drug dealers out along with the terrorists that is helping them. Mexico has large numbers of people from the Middle East that have immigrated to Mexico, started businesses dress like the locals learn to speak Spanish so you can’t tell who is who. The drug cartels work with the terrorists and help them to cross the border between Mexico and the U.S. Another thing that Mexico don’t want to lose is the Billions of dollars that is sent to Mexico each year by the millions of illegal aliens that work jobs in the U.S. that used to hire U.S. workers but now hire cheaper illegal aliens instead. They have taken construction jobs, meat plant jobs etc. That is what’s ticking off the Mexican population they won’t be able to just walk across the border anymore flipping the bird to the Border Patrol. I’m tired of my tax dollars being used the pay for Mexico’s illegal aliens support along with their food stamps, free medical for their kids welfare etc. All of us are tired of supporting Mexico’s poor when Mexico is supposed to help support them not us. Close the border and that will dry up the drugs too.
