This is the rationale that leftists always gave for allowing unfettered illegal immigration from Mexico.

Leftists made the US responsible for Mexico's hellish conditions.

In reality, of course, MEXICANS are responsible for Mexico's hellish conditions.
When the hapless George W. Bush was president, I read a Pentagon assessment that said that illegal immigration was a "safety valve" that prevented Mexico from becoming a failed state.

Well, Mexico IS a failed state, despite us allowing unfettered illegal immigration.
Mexico's problem is corruption.

You may have see the debacle after the capture of El Chapo's son in Culiacán.

What happened is that the newly formed National Guard utterly defeated the cartel gunmen.
Video after video showed dead "sicarios," as they're called.

The sicarios aren't well trained, and they had "technicals."
Multiple technicals were destroyed, and their entire crews killed.

In one case, a technical was taken out by a helicopter gunship.
But what happened was that the corrupt Mexican president ordered his men to stand down and release El Chapo's son.

As long as Mexican leaders are bought off, there's nothing we can do.
@mccaffreyr3 doesn't live in a sanctuary city.

His quality of life has not been impacted by illegal immigration.

@realDonaldTrump has the only solution: Force Mexico to take responsibility for its own failures.
@mccaffreyr3 @realDonaldTrump We saw that the Mexican National Guard could easily defeat the cartels.

The fact that the corrupt Mexican president called off the Guard is not our problem.

We have to shut off the safety valve, because otherwise WE become a failed state, like California.
@mccaffreyr3 @realDonaldTrump @mccaffreyr3 also says that Trump is Mussolini, because Trump canceled subscriptions to the @nytimes and the @washingtonpost.

Mussolini murdered his opponents. Federal employees are still able to read the #FakeNewsMedia on their own dime.
@mccaffreyr3 @realDonaldTrump @nytimes @washingtonpost But @mccaffreyr3 shows us the terrible decline in the leadership of our armed forces.

The stupid "safety valve" argument about Mexico was proven wrong decades ago.

And here's something we all need to remember:

That which has no will to survive, won't.
@mccaffreyr3 @realDonaldTrump @nytimes @washingtonpost It's not our responsibility to save Mexico from itself.

Today, Iraqis are rioting because of the endless disaster we created by overthrowing Saddam Hussein.

Because of us, Iran became much more powerful.
@mccaffreyr3 @realDonaldTrump @nytimes @washingtonpost President Trump is telling the Mexicans, "Do what you want, and WE WILL TOO."

This is the best position any American president has ever taken.

Our national security is in the right hands.
