Above: El Presidente is shocked — shocked — that the U.S.
doesn’t want his poorest and most criminally-minded citizens.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said he is “indignant” at the United States’ deportation of Mexican migrants and described U.S. lawmakers as demonstrating a “lack of conscience” in failing to pass immigration reform.
Translation? Mexico’s head Conquistador is sore that the peasants they have worked so hard to export to the chumps in El Norte are being sent back to them.
There I said it.
Mexico does everything it can to rid itself of its poorest and brownest citizens and use Los Estados Unidos as its outsourced welfare state; helps them grab every social service benefit they can get while they’re here; demand they be handed U.S. citizenship; sue if there is any “discrimination” (i.e. law enforcement) against them; and howls like mad if a single one is deported.
We will provide the most minute detail on each of the accusations above in a longer piece coming this week on TRN. But suffice it to say that Mexico’s entire economy is based upon illegal immigration into the U.S. and the massive economic benefits it provides — despite a treasonous U.S. news media that conceals this fact, and instead portrays any Americans trying to stop it as heartless racists.
Back to Nieto,
In a television interview aired late on Wednesday Pena Nieto said he and U.S. President Barack Obama discussed the issue during their meeting at a North American leaders’ summit held last week in Mexico.
“Yes it makes me indignant, and it makes Mexicans indignant,” Pena Nieto said in the interview, when asked whether deportations angered him.
Of course Nieto’s faux outrage at Obama’s “record” deportations looks even sillier given that fact that Obama’s own DHS Secretary last week finally admitted that Obama was cooking the books, and actually has deported fewer illegals than Jimmy Carter. But let him continue…
“There’s a lack of conscience, something which shouldn’t only alert and worry Mexicans, it should also worry the American government and they should take up the issue,” said Pena Nieto.
Pena Nieto added that he sees a “willingness” on the part of the Obama administration to change immigration laws, and that “reform” which provides a path to citizenship should “have the backing and aid of the various political forces” in the United States.
Sounds like Mexico has a very generous attitude towards illegal immigrants, right?
Um, not exactly.
While the Mexican government lobbies for more “humane” treatment of illegal border crossers from their country into ours, Mexico remains notoriously restrictionist toward “undesirable” foreigners who break their laws or “threaten their security”.
Michelle Malkin detailed some of these Mexican policies towards illegal aliens:
– Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years’ imprisonment. Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud. Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years’ imprisonment. Foreigners may be kicked out of the country without due process and the endless bites at the litigation apple that illegal aliens are afforded in our country
Article 33 of Mexico’s constitution establishes the right of the president to detain and deport “any foreigner” and prohibits foreigners from participating “in any way” in the political affairs of the country.
Mexico fiercely maintains laws against illegal border crossings.
Mexico carries out “verification visits” to enforce visa conditions and requires that foreigners produce proof of legal status on demand. Visitors who do not possess proper documents and identification are subject to arrest at any time. -But remember when Mexican leaders decried Arizona’s “Papers Please” law SB1070 which did nothing more?
Mexico has enforcement and cooperation between and among immigration officials and law enforcement authorities at all levels — despite how the Mexican-funded Mexican-American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) is fighting to dismantle an identical 287(g) Program throughout the United States.
Native-born Mexicans are actually empowered to make citizens arrests of illegal aliens and turn them in to authorities. Can you even imagine the outcry from Mexico (not to mention the ACLU and Eric Holder) if Americans were empowered to do the same?
Americans are sick of Mexican hypocrisy — or at least the small percentage of Americans who are told the truth about Mexico. Typically all one hears is how “poor” everyone is in the 10th richest nation on Earth, how mean we are to “separate” families that have no business being here in the first place, and never do we hear how the Mexican oligarchs cynically exploit these people for their own benefit.
That is about to change. Stay tuned.
