Mex Pres Dumps Trump And Makes Incredibly Unsettling Statement About Illegal Immigrants

Today Mexican President Enrique Pena canceled his meeting with President Trump. According to President Pena they informed the White House early this morning he would not attend the meeting scheduled for Tuesday.

President Trump went on the attack via his favorite social media platform Twitter.

In a video statement translated by CNN President Pena stated that

“Mexico does not believe in walls. I’ve said time again; Mexico will not pay for any wall,”

President Pena also made a strong statement regarding illegal Mexican immigrants in the US.

In his video address, Peña Nieto also said he had ordered government agencies to step up protection for immigrants.
“I’ve asked for the minister of Foreign Relations to re-enforce protection measures to our citizens,” he said. He added that the 50 Mexican consulates in the US will be used to defend the rights of immigrants in the country and issued a call to action to legislators and civil organizations to help immigrants.

Peña Nieto closed his message by saying that Mexico offers and expects respect. “Mexico offers its friendship to the people of the United States and expresses its wish to arrive at agreements with its government, deals that will be in favor of Mexico and the Mexicans,” he said.

It is understandable that President Pena would not want to come to the US immediately after Trump ordered the start of the border wall. Yesterday most of the executive actions signed were aimed at hindering illegal immigrants into the US from Mexico. However, the American people are not going to be pleased to hear that another country is going to protect lawbreakers inside the US. President Pena needs to choose his actions carefully, he has no leverage to negotiate with President Trump and could get his country shut out.
