1) Extreme Compliance At the Southern Border Is Paying Off BIGLY! Mexico Is Seeing & Feeling the Financial Ramifications.....

On April 6th, our President announced the redeployment of 750 Border Agents away from U.S-Mexico specific ports of entry:

In doing so, the Mexican Government is seeing & feeling the financial ramifications. Added fuel costs for their trucks. Produce that is rotting which is causing businesses to lose large sums of money. Americans are not crossing the border to shop or
4) spend time in Mexico because of the extended wait time to get back into our country.

They also know that our President is an APEX PREDATOR that will destroy their economy and country in order to protect the citizens of the USA. He gave them a year but said he will be
5) monitoring them in the meantime. If he sees them doing nothing, he will close our Southern Border.

In essence, 80% of the Southern Border has already been closed by Extreme Compliance.

Extreme Compliance – If the President wants to … he might have another card up his
6) sleeve. There are interior checkpoints operated by the border patrol on the I5 and I15 (northbound) freeways. These are the only routes out of the San Diego area to Orange and Riverside counties and all points past them.

Moreover, when they are operating traffic backs up for
7) miles. Imagine if they were operating continuously and more deliberately then normal (due to the increased border crossings). Traffic would come to a complete halt from San Diego to Orange and Riverside counties.

Here are some examples of Extreme Compliance.

From the article linked above:

MCALLEN, Texas — Travelers crossing the border from Mexico this Easter weekend are having to cope with a shortage in U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents manning the ports of entry, leading to longer-than-normal
9) wait times.

Bridge wait time woes began three weeks ago when the Trump administration decided to reassign customs agents to help U.S. Border Patrol handle the influx of undocumented immigrants crossing the border.

Now longer-than-usual wait times at ports of entry have
10) become the norm in recent weeks.



From the article linked above:

The caravans are contributing to a surge in illegal border crossings into the United States, which has experienced more illegal crossings from Mexico than it has in 12 years. To boost
11) patrols in overwhelmed sectors, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has reassigned hundreds of agents from high-traffic ports of entry, such as San Diego, and Laredo and El Paso in Texas. This in turn has slowed down the processing of legitimate border traffic.

Making
12) it harder for the government to cope with the surge, and thus increasing legal crossing wait times, CBP has simultaneously been struggling with staffing shortages. In late March, CBP ordered the redeployment of 750 agents from El Paso and Laredo; Tucson, Arizona; and San
13) Diego to address the surge along less-patrolled sections of the border. That number could go up to 2,000 agents during April, and CBP could request even more if it deems it necessary — further straining resources at busy ports of entry.

Less personnel means fewer open lanes,
14) delays in processing vehicles and backlogs that compound the wait time — ultimately raising shipping costs for companies and individuals that rely on products from Mexico.

Faced with an influx of immigrants and a shortage of personnel to deal with them, U.S. President
15) Donald Trump's administration has chosen border security over the swift processing of commercial and private traffic from Mexico. While the president didn't go so far as to shut down the border as he threatened in early April, the redeploying of limited human resources away
16) from entry points has still hampered trade.



From the article linked above:

Waves of migrants at the Mexican border have prompted the Department of Homeland Security to temporarily assign Customs and Border Protection agents at the southern ports of
17) entry to the Border Patrol.

In an April 11 online report, The Journal of Commerce quoted multi-modal logistics company C.H. Robinson Worldwide as saying that the shift of CBP officers to Border Patrol “has reduced cargo processing capacity along the border by 30 to 40
18) percent.” In the major cargo ports of entry on the Mexican border, crossing lanes have been reduced, FAST (rapid crossing) lanes suspended, and weekend crossings limited. This has added delays that are resulting in extra hours crossing northbound cargo into the U.S. Border
19) crossing times for cargo have stretched to as long as 10 hours in Laredo and up to nine hours in El Paso (video of the lines of trucks and cars waiting to cross at the Santa Teresa Port of Entry can be seen on the Border Industrial Association’s Facebook page).

Commercial
20) drivers are sleeping in their trucks so as not to lose their place in line when ports of entry open the next day. At the Nogales, Ariz., Port of Entry, the primary port for Mexican produce entering the U.S., companies are nervously watching the increasing crossing times
21) worried that at a certain point their shipments will spoil before they reach consumers.

Look what is happening in Mexico that hasn’t happened before. Seems that President AMLO got the message loud and clear!



From the article linked above:

Mexican
22) police and immigration agents detained hundreds of Central American migrants Monday in the largest single raid on a migrant caravan since the groups started moving through the country last year.

As migrants gathered under spots of shade in the burning heat outside the city
23) of Pijijiapan, federal police and agents passed by in patrol trucks and vans and forcibly wrestled women, men and children into the vehicles.

The migrants were driven to buses, presumably for subsequent transportation to an immigration station for deportation processing. As
24) many as 500 migrants might have been picked up in the raid, according to Associated Press journalists at the scene.

Some of the women and children wailed and screamed during the detentions on the roadside. Clothes, shoes, suitcases and strollers littered the scene after they
25) were taken away.

Agents had encouraged groups of migrants that separated from the bulk of the caravan to rest after some seven hours on the road, including about half of that under a broiling sun. When the migrants regrouped to continue, they were detained.

Agents
26) positioned themselves at the head of the group and at the back. Some people in civilian clothing appeared to be participating in the detentions.

Mexico welcomed the first caravans last year, but the reception has gotten colder since tens of thousands of migrants overwhelmed
27) U.S. border crossings, causing delays at the border and anger among Mexican residents.

The detentions came as the U.S. has ramped up public pressure on Mexico to do more to stop the flow of migrants. President Donald Trump railed against the government of his Mexican
28) counterpart, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, and threatened to shut the entire border down, but then quickly congratulated Mexico for migrant arrests just a few weeks ago.



From the article linked above:

Like so many others in his impoverished part of
29) southern Mexico, Joaquín Ramírez, a corn farmer, eagerly cast his vote in the presidential election last year for Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

But less than five months into Mr. López Obrador’s term, Mr. Ramírez’s view of the president has begun to sour.

The reason, he
30) said, is evident in the tens of thousands of migrants from Central America and elsewhere who have stopped in his small town in recent months en route to the United States border, taxing government resources and the patience of residents.

The López Obrador administration has
31) been under extraordinary pressure from the Trump administration to stem the flow of migrants heading north. Mr. Trump has threatened to close the southwest border of the United States unless Mexican officials step up their immigration enforcement efforts.

That challenge has
32) tested Mr. Lopez Obrador’s stated goal of presenting a softer, more-welcoming face toward migrants.

But after more than 13,000 migrants applied for the visa in only two weeks, the policy was suspended.

A promise to start issuing the visas again nearly three weeks ago was
33) abruptly rescinded this week. Instead, the authorities said they would issue only temporary regional visas that restrict migrants to the south of the country, thereby keeping them from traveling legally to the American border.

The Mexican government did not explain the
34) change in strategy. But the shift has further added to confusion among migrants.

The Mexican authorities also appear to be ramping up enforcement efforts under pressure from the Trump administration. Mexican officials have said they are deploying a cordon of security forces
35) across southern Mexico to help control illegal migration.

Never forget that MONEY TALKS and BS WALKS! AMLO is and will continue to learn the hard way.
