(NationalSentinel) Immigration:Â The massive narco-state of Mexico is spending tens of millions of dollars to provide more legal assistance to ensure its citizens living illegally in the United States continue sponging off the American taxpayer.
Not only is the Mexican government not building a wall; it’s spending $50 million to beef up its legal aid to migrants who fear deportation, a response to President Donald Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration.
All 50 Mexican consulates in the U.S. on Friday launched legal assistance centers to form partnerships with nonprofit groups and tap lawyers to help those fearing Trump’s policies.
The diplomatic effort comes as the two countries are in a rift over Trump’s plans for a border wall. While Trump says Mexico will pay for it one way or another, Mexico says it won’t. It was also unveiled less than two weeks after new guidelines came out aimed at aggressively detaining and deporting immigrants by increasing the number of federal agents and strengthening cooperation with local law enforcement.
First and foremost, Trump isn’t “cracking down” in illegal immigration. He’s merelyÂ enforcing existing immigration law that Democrats, when they owned the presidency and both chambers of Congress from 2008-2010, did nothing to change.
Also, this is no “diplomatic effort;” this is a concerted, conscious effort by the Mexican government to subvert and undermine the U.S. president and U.S. law, period, and should be treated as such.
More from the AP:
Miami’s Mexican consul general, Jose Antonio Zabalgoitia, said Friday that these centers would become “authentic advocates of the rights of Mexican migrants.”
“What changes today is that we are prioritizing legal matters over everything. Previously, we didn’t have the need to seek so much legal support for our people,” he said. “But now, we need to protect them against an eventual deportation.”
Mexican foreign minister Luis Videgaray visited New York City’s consulate Friday and called the effort “a moral imperative.”
“It is something that we will continue to do by obligation and conviction,” Videgaray said.
Any Mexican citizen or citizen ofÂ anyÂ other country in the U.S.Â illegally doesn’t enjoy all of the rights that American citizens enjoy, period, so there’s that.

But also, isn’t it amazing the lengths the Mexican governmentÂ will goÂ to ensure thatÂ it doesn’t have to take responsibility for its own poor?
Trump’s enforcement actions are not racist, they’re not bigoted, they’re notÂ anything other than proper and just, considering the president is entrusted to enforceÂ allÂ laws judiciously. Just because his successors did not doesn’tÂ justify an entire country mobilizing legal forces to ensure its governmentÂ continues to be let off the hook for failing to provide enough jobs, benefits and other necessities for their own people.
