We discovered over this last weekend that President Trump has some unexpected allies in promoting his policies on immigration.
Let’s begin with Mexico.
Tijuana has been overwhelmed with an invading army of illegal alien trespassers, and it turns out residents don’t want unvetted illegals in their city any more than we do. The mayor, begging to differ with Jim Acosta, said the influx of migrants was an “avalanche” and a local carpenter screamed that “this is [an] invasion” (LA Times).
Other Tijuana residents complained that the migrants were messy, ungrateful, and a danger to the peace and security of their local community. They’re also worried about how much of their taxes are going to be confiscated to provide care for the invaders.
Environmentalists are starting to screech that human traffickers, drug cartels and other criminal elements are laying waste to unsecured sections of the border by trampling on delicate plant life and leaving behind alarming amounts of trash and human waste. There are five wilderness areas that butt right up against the border with Mexico and 15 other designated wilderness areas within 20 miles of the border. Environmental policies inhibit the Border Patrol in discharging its duties. This leaves the environment vulnerable to those who are not being stopped and could care less about the damage they do.
Plus, the Mexican government has announced that it will immediately deport any alien who commits a crime on Mexican soil. So far the number is well above 100 from the caravan alone. So Mexico is now saying illegal aliens are a threat to communities and all criminal aliens must be deported. Where have we heard that kind of rhetoric before? Hmmm?
So, Trump has picked up an ally on immigration in Mexico, whether Mexico realizes it or not.
Trump also picked up an ally in Hillary Clinton.
Ms. Clinton raked Europe over the coals recently for allowing unrestricted immigration, saying their lax immigration policy has made them vulnerable to internal political dissent. “Europe,” she said, “must send a very clear message—‘we are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support’—because if we don’t deal with the migration issue it will continue to roil the body politic.”
Last but not least, Native American peoples are seeking to turn Thanksgiving into a “National Day of Mourning.” Why? Because the unrestricted immigration of Europeans into their lands radically disturbed their domestic tranquility and made them vulnerable to disease and violence.
Here’s how they all agree with President Trump
So let’s see. President Trump wants to carefully control immigration to protect our sovereignty and security. He wants to deport any illegal alien who commits a crime on our soil. Which is exactly what Mexico wants to do.
Hillary is insisting that Europe needs “to get a handle” on immigration or their social unity will be threatened, which is exactly why the president wants to get control of our southern border.
And then Native Americans are essentially saying, “If you want to see what unrestrained and unrestricted immigration can do, just take a look at us.” Whether they have a valid point or not, their philosophy on immigration is hardly different than the president’s.
It’s not often that The Donald, Hillary, the Mexican government, and Native Americans see eye-to-eye on something, but it looks like immigration just might be it.
