Mexico Is ‘Outraged’ That Texas Is Strengthening Border Security

Mexico doesn’t want us to strengthen border security – they’re disappointed and some are outraged by it. They are mischaracterizing Governor Abbott’s Border Security bill as militarization. We have 25% of their population in our country. One has to wonder how many will be enough.

A Border Patrol helicopter was shot at and forced to land last week by cartel gangsters. Mexico is assisting in the investigation but they don’t want border security beefed up.

The U.S. sent two armed helicopters to the Texas border after the attack, Breitbart reported and apparently some Mexicans lighted up social media with “outrage” over what they called the “militarization of the border.”

The anger was in response to both the armed helicopters and the Abbott bill.

The Mexican government insisted that it “categorically rejects any attempt to see the border as a security threat,” according to the AP. It has has long opposed any militarization of the border, the newswire explained.

They don’t see the border as a security threat. Good for them. We do.

U.S. Congressman Rep. Filemon Vela (D-TX) (photo above) fired back.

“Out of deference to Mexico’s sovereignty, we have largely deferred to their government to effectively control violence in Matamoros and Tamaulipas. Those efforts have largely failed,” the congressman said in a prepared statement to Breitbart Texas.

Gov Abbott

Governor Abbott is strengthening security at the border despite Mexico’s wishes.

The Mexican Foreign Ministry released a Spanish-language statement expressing their disappointment over Texas Governor Abbott’s new law.

According to the statement, “Mexico has expressed full opening for a frank and direct dialogue with the government of Texas on border security from a holistic perspective that allows direct resources towards the consolidation of a safe, efficient and competitive border to facilitate the legitimate flow of goods and people and to promote prosperity and development on both sides of the border,” the Mexican Foreign Ministry stated.rding to Mexico, it promotes a “division” between both societies and contradicts the principles and values of the U.S. and Mexico’s bilateral relationship.

Does that mean the legitimate flow of illegal aliens?

The Mexican Ministry wrote that they realize it won’t affect the “rights and dignity” of Mexican nationals.

Governor Abbott said that he was giving prosecutors the tools to crack down on cartels engaging drug dealing and human trafficking.

“We cannot be naïve to the threat posed by drug cartels and transnational gangs. And Texas will not sit idly by while the federal government fails to do its job and secure the border,” said Abbott in a statement. “I’m proud to sign legislation to implement measures that will help provide for the safety and security of communities across Texas.”

In a video statement, Governor Abbott said that these are some of the toughest border security measures ever passed.

It “provides historic levels of funding to secure the border, establishes a Child Sex Trafficking Prevention Unit, strengthens penalties for human traffickers and increases funding for the border prosecution unit,” he said.

“Our first and foremost obligation is to protect our citizens’ safety,” Governor Abbott says in the video. “This comprehensive border security plan will ensure the safety of our communities, and I am proud to implement it.”

While Governor Abbott’s beefing up security, our president is releasing foreign national criminals throughout the country.

The Obama administration just released almost 1300 criminal Cubans who completed their prison terms. Cuba won’t take them back so our government just frees them onto our streets. Along with Cuba, China and Vietnam top the list but now Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras and other close partners are doing the same thing.

We need to complete militarization of the border! Hell we should line the entire stretch with landmines and machineguns like other countries do! This needs to stop one way or the other. And If they actually need help theres countless people willing to volunteer to help secure the border. What noone understands is these are not just immigrants they are illegal aliens (CRIMINAL TRASH) period. They dont come to work All they want is free handouts. And it’s a complete slap in the face to every immigrant that came and went through the proper channels spending years to get their citizenship.. Biden should be tried for TREASON for causing all of it. His priority is not about America first just filling his pockets! The militias and common citizens should and WILL make a second line of defense if the government still wont do their job. I just cant wait to see how much longer this crap has to continue until they finally take a stand and start to do the federal governments damn job. GOD BLESS TRUMP!

Part of Texas’s proud heritage is Mexican and Spanish. There are many who trace their ancestry in Texas way beyond Texas’s independence from Mexico. These folks are All-American!

However, many who come here today have little interest in being Americanized. Some come for survival, which, regrettably, is mostly viewed as Free Stuff. Many come here for strictly illegal purposes.
