Well, isn’t this the pot calling the kettle black.
As much as Mexicans, under the leadership of President Enrique Pena Nieto, decry Donald Trump’s vow to build a border wall on America’s southern sections – keeping out illegal crossers from Mexico – views flip-flop, it seems, when it comes time for Mexico to deal with refugees from Central America.
The Daily Mail reports the hypocrisy:
“Mexicans are calling for the border wall to keep out Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans fleeing violence in their own countries.
“They complain ‘hordes’ of immigrants pass through on their way to the United States, who are then simply deported back to Mexico rather than their home countries by the U.S.
“Central American migrants are left stuck in border cities with Mexican officials unable to afford to send them back to their own countries, according to an article by one of the largest newspapers in the border state of Tamaulipas, El Manana, titled: ‘Yes to the Border Wall … But in Mexico’s South.'”
Well note to Mexico: We feel for ya.
But not that much.
It was just recently Nieto painted Trump’s call for a border wall with Mexico – paid for by Mexico, no less – a “very unfortunate” platform, as the Atlantic reported. And it was even more recently Mexico’s former president, Vicente Fox, took rod to Trump-pinata, and beat it open on live TV.

When candy didn’t pour forth, Fox said, the Hill reported: “Empty, totally empty. He doesn’t have a brain.”
