Frightened by the prospect of an incoming President Donald Trump, Mexico has begun preparing its U.S. diplomats to fight for the “needs” of the millions of illegal immigrants who live in the United States.
Specifically, the nation’s foreign ministry has begun to “analyze the results of the US election and discuss concrete actions concerning the future of the bilateral relationship,” according to a statement reported by France 24.
“The rights of Mexicans, inside and outside their country, are not negotiable,” the ministry added.
But the right of the United States to control its own borders isn’t negotiable either. Nor is it up for debate whether the president-elect could come after America’s many illegal immigrants.
“Generally speaking, any president has wide discretion when it comes to enforcing our immigration laws because immigration touches on national sovereignty,” Stephen Yale-Loehr, a professor at Cornell Law School, explained to USA Today.
When citizens of any other country illegally enter the United States, they violate federal law and thus make themselves vulnerable to severe consequences as allowed for by constitutional law.
And the chief consequence in store for many of them is deportation.
“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably 2 million, it could be even 3 million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” Trump said in an interview that aired Sunday on “60 Minutes.”
He added that after criminal illegals are removed and the border secured, he would “make a determination on the” fate of any remaining illegal-immigrant families, whom he went on to reportedly describe as “terrific people.”
At least 2 to 3 million illegals are expected to be deported within Trump’s first few months in office, and try as they might to stop it, Mexico’s frightened officials have no other choice but to accept what was literally coming home to them.
