BLACKMAIL: Mexican President Says Migrants Overwhelming US Will Continue Unless His Demands Are Met

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador warned the US that if it does not comply with Latin America’s requests for aid, the flow of migrants will continue. In an interview with “60 Minutes,” Obrador reiterated his demands for the US to send $20 billion a year to Latin American countries, lift sanctions on Venezuela, end the Cuban embargo, and legalize millions of Mexicans living in the US.

“If they don’t do the things that you’ve said need to be done, then what?,” correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi asked.

“The flow of migrants will continue,” Obrador responded.

Alfonsi noted that Obrador’s critics have accused him of engaging in “diplomatic blackmail” by making these demands in exchange for helping to secure the border.

“I’m speaking frankly,” Obrador said. “We have to say things as they are. And I always say what I feel, I always say what I think.”

When asked if he would continue to help secure the border even if his demands are not met, Obrador replied, “Yes, because our relationship is very important. It is fundamental.”

  1. The United States could threaten to hire the “migrants” (who are attracted to the US by the prospect of jobs, not handouts), and thereby no longer needing to outsource to Mexican factories due to a shortage of American workers.

  2. Bklyntrucker : How would a family on public assistance benefit from the border crisis? Large numbers of migrants (especially as “illegal aliens” meaning they get paid less) take jobs away for poor Americans, such as those on public assistance. The goal of people on public assistance is to get good enough jobs so they make more working than being on welfare, and the border crisis hurts them most of all (which is why it appears that Trump is doing relatively well, compared to other recent Republican nominees, among Blacks and Hispanics, not to mention poor Whites).

  3. lakewoodbt: If you look at the pictures, the “wetbacks” are overwhelmingly male. Contrary to the new dogma of the Democratic party, only females can produce babies.
