Obama and Mexican President-Elect Forge Amnesty Pact

PresidentObama met on Tuesday with Mexico’s President-elect Enrique Pena Nieto yesterday, and Nieto’s party, The Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), is a member of the Socialist International- a group of political parties that want to establish democratic socialism around the world.The ramifications of President Barack Obama’s self-described ‘mandate’ victory three weeks ago are becoming more clearer by the day, and they’re not good, folks.  

Pena has previously stated that he is looking to focus on Mexico’s economic development but is only looking to “do what he can” to curb the ongoing drug war that has ravaged his country.

Outgoing President Calderon was prosecuting a somewhat more aggressive war against the drug cartels, but his efforts did not significantly impact the cartels or the violence they’ve been responsible for. 

During their meeting at the White House, Nieto indicated that he “backed President Barack Obama’s planned push for U.S. immigration reform” and “pledged cooperation on border security and promised efforts to reduce violence in his own country,” according to Reuters-

Pena Nieto made clear that Mexicans were closely following Obama’s plan to tackle a major U.S. domestic issue – fixing America’s immigration system. The porous, nearly 2,000-mile (3,200-km) U.S.-Mexican border is the No. 1 crossing point for illegal immigrants entering the United States.

Emboldened by strong support from Hispanic voters in the November 6 U.S. election, Obama said just days later that he planned to move quickly in his second term to address an immigration overhaul, an achievement that eluded him in his first term.

“We fully support your proposals,” Pena Nieto told reporters as he began an Oval Office meeting with Obama. “We want to contribute; we really want to participate …. In the betterment and the well-being of so many millions of people who live in your country.”

Obama spoke of what he called a “very ambitious reform agenda” put forth by Pena Nieto, who takes power at a time when Mexico is bucking an international economic downturn but is coping with widespread drug gang violence.

“In terms of security, that’s another major challenge that we all face. My government is set out to reduce the violence situation in our country,” Pena Nieto said through a translator. “I will do everything we can for this.”-Reuters

In layman’s terms, President Obama will forge ahead with a heavy-handed unilateral amnesty measure for illegal aliens that bypasses Congress and will have the full support of Mexico’s socialist government in doing so.  Mexico’s economy benefits from the tax-free U.S. dollars being sent back from illegal aliens who are working here in the United States.

What else could Nieto do to qualm the raging drug war in Mexico?  He’s made it very clear when he told President Obama that Mexico “fully support your proposals”-those proposals would be the amnesty laden immigration directives that Obama and his administration have had in place.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio recently penned an op-ed which sounded hopeful for a better U.S.-Mexico relationship but refrained from criticizing the past failures of the Mexican and U.S. governments, including the failed Fast and Furious program with has fueled the murder rate in Mexico.

The United States and Mexico have much to gain from a close, productive relationship.  Obviously, issues related to immigration and cooperation in fighting drug trafficking will remain important. We should coordinate closely with the new president on his approach to combating the traffickers, ensuring that our interests are preserved while simultaneously helping Mexico achieve its goal of reducing the violence that has plagued the country and at times struck fear in U.S. border communities. -Senator Marco Rubio  (McClatchy News)

Republicans could be facing a political end-game if they cave to the Democrat Party’s call for amnesty. Rush Limbaugh said it best- “Why are Democrats so eager to have Republicans agree to amnesty?  Do you think Democrats want to share their voters with Republicans?”  

It’s no secret that Democrats want amnesty for illegals who will then be eligible to receive government entitlements and vote Democrat.  That’s their end game, and just as California has irretrievably gone into the Democrat fold, so will several other states if amnesty is realized.

    “In terms of security, that’s another major challenge that we all face. My government is set out to reduce the violence situation in our country,” Pena Nieto said through a translator.

    That’s a poor translation. It really should read:

    “My government is prepared to accept the bribes from President Obama’s preferred cartel, the Chicago connected Sinaloans. We will fight all the other cartels. This will reduced the violence once only the Sinaloans remain. Also, you will feed and clothe all our citizens within your borders, we’ll collect their renittances, and in exchange, your banks will launder the Sinaloan drug money. Viva la Reconquista!”

    i dont guess i should be surprised by this, i wonder if the feds could be sued under unfair treatment to american workers by allowing illegals to break american law, by being here illegally, seeking work illegally, why should we be forced to obey laws follow rules that those who over stay visas, enter U.S. illegally seem to be given a pass on.

    When you have a majority of your 18 to 30 year olds who
    1) Define Socialism as being “social” or what one does on Facebook and 2) Approve of the USA becomming a Socialist Country …you’ve lost what WAS a Republic.

    Not only will we hit the Fiscal Cliff, we will hit the Capitalist Cliff whereby all freedoms and liberties will cease to exist.

    Solution: Get rid of the Fed Dept of Education and privatize ALL schools. No more government teacher unions; no more “revisionist” history and getting back to the true basics: Reading, Writing and Arithmetic.

      None of this would happen if only We The People controlled our governemnt! You know… the days our government was set up to serve the people and not the people serve them. Those days are gone and the US is no longer the light of this world. We are back on the same boat we were in when the US was founded; we wanted a government that feared the people and we now fear our government.

      If the people of the US doesn’t wake up, history WILL repeat, once again. Remember the Romans, Egyptians, Hitler, etc… Is it the US’ turn to destroy this world? The way we are going, yes it is.

      You are SOOO right! Do you have a link for your source on that definition of “socialism?” I’d love to write about it at teriobrien.com.
      Thanks!

    So treason is now just a “pact” .. well isn’t that special.

    “what’s _up”, like your thinking, keep it up. To bad there are not more like you.

    This country will receive another nail for its coffin, if amnesty triumphs as it seems it will. Any country must control its borders, and enforce laws, to survive.

    I’m disgusted with Americans for being indifferent to the doom of our country. Amnesty lovers will pay a price, along with the “poor” who demand more welfare but are unwilling to do their fair share.

    Americans are the worst enemy of those who love Amereica and democracy.
