Incoming Mexican President Plans Police Force, Fencing At Mexican Border

Will Democrats and Leftists have a problem with this? Will they attack President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador as being mean and hateful and fascist and stuff?

(Bloomberg) After months of Donald Trump’s controversial clampdown on immigration, Mexico’s President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is planning his own border police force to stop undocumented immigrants, drugs and guns from crossing into the country from Central America, his future chief of public security said.

Picked by Lopez Obrador, Alfonso Durazo stressed that the new force would be part of a larger regional development effort to ease the poverty and violence that lead so many Central Americans to cross into Mexico. The police corps will be sizable, he said, and will be deployed to Mexico’s northern border as well. He declined to offer more specifics as the details are still being decided.

“We’re going to create a border police force that will be highly specialized,” Durazo said in an interview. “They need to apply the law,” including stopping undocumented migrants and human traffickers from crossing into Mexico, which Durazo says often takes place with the help of corrupt officials.

Lopez Obrador and the left-wing party he formed in 2014 won a landslide victory in last week’s election after voters disgusted with rising crime, corruption and poverty kicked the nation’s established parties out of power. AMLO, as he’s known, also got a boost from pledges to protect Mexicans against an immigrant crackdown by U.S. President Donald Trump. Now he’ll be faced with the unenviable task of securing the nation’s own untamed southern border, while avoiding the hard-line tactics he has criticized Trump for.

He’s like Hitler! Or something.

Durazo stressed that the most important measures to contain immigration under Lopez Obrador will be humanitarian and will include coordination with Central American countries to improve the quality of life of their citizens.

The question is, how? It’s not an easy fix. It would also be helpful for him to start slamming the Democratic Party, which sets the conditions for people to attempt to cross Mexico to go to America illegally.

But, in terms of AMLO fixing corruption within Mexico, particularly in the government, the police forces, and even the military, as well as reducing the power of the cartels, I wish him a sincere good luck, and hope he can accomplish much.

    That’s all well and good, but does he have the same respect for other countries’ borders?

  2. Dana says:

    The border police will also be deployed to Mexico’s northern border, the article said. To do just what, I have to ask?
