MEXICO, IT TURNS out, is not keen on illegal aliens.
At least, the ones who want to stay in Mexico instead of doing the expected thing of riding atop a train to the Rio Bravo, jumping off and swimming across. When they do that, well, no sweat.
We rob them and screw them along the way.
The Trump Administration, a gift that keeps on giving, simply by being in office, has resulted in a significant drop in border invasions. Illegals have second thoughts. Many are detouring to Canada, thanks to young, clueless Trudeau.
But many are Hondurans who, after sneaking into Southern Mexico, are deciding to go no farther. After all, Mexico is a real step up from grisly Honduras.
As a result, crime and social problems are soaring. Surprise! So Mexico is deporting illegals back where they came from.
Sometimes diversity ain’t so sweet.
Figures show that Mexico has deported 16,332 Hondurans since January. More details available here.
IN THE WAKE of Donald Trump’s triumphant march to the White House, I wanted some memorabilia of the historic event — to remember that I was a player.
I went to eBay and bought a commemorative cup for 17 bucks, and had it shipped to Mexico for an additional 10. I intended to set the cup on my desk to hold pens and pencils. And I’d have Trump’s proud face before me while sitting here.
A combed-over desk companion.
The cup was surrounded with bubble wrap and boxed for its trip south. When I picked it up downtown here at the Estafeta office, it made an unsettling clinking sound.
When I opened the box and unwrapped the cup from its protective insulation, it was well-smashed.
There is no explanation aside from this: When the box was opened at the border at Mexican Customs, which is the custom, the agent broke it, probably with a hammer.
Then he rewrapped it and put it back into the box.
