Epic: Rick Perry Is About To Go Toe-To-Toe With Mexico

As Western Journalism reported, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is prepared to act without federal assistance to secure his state’s porous border with Mexico. He recently announced a plan that would put as many as 1,000 Texas National Guard members along the most vulnerable points of entry, a move widely celebrated by Texans – and Americans in general – who want to see the nation’s immigration laws enforced.

Fox News Latino, however, indicates that those on the other side of the border are notably less receptive to the idea.

Sources within the Mexican government are publicly ridiculing Perry’s proposal as emblematic of his uncaring attitude toward those illegally crossing into the U.S. from Mexico and Central America.

The nation’s foreign relations secretariat released a statement this week providing that nation’s preferred approach to the ongoing crisis.

“Attention to the immigration phenomenon must be paid from a long-term regional perspective and based on the principles of good neighborliness and shared responsibility,” the statement asserted.

According to the secretariat’s pronouncement, the U.S. should keep in mind the “necessary shared responsibility among the countries of origin, transit and destination of migration flows.”

Furthermore, the statement lambasted perceived mistreatment at the hands of American authorities “directed at the most vulnerable, including unaccompanied children and teenagers.”

Of course, many of these kids are traveling up to thousands of miles in the ostensible care of ruthless criminals. As Perry explained, the de facto amnesty implemented by the Obama administration only further increases the chance that young illegals will experience violence and even death during the arduous journey to America.

The Mexican government proclaimed that it will work with Central America “to improve conditions in the medium and long term that contribute to the development of that region and strengthen its prosperity.”

As Mexican nationals continue to pour across the U.S. border alongside Central American youth, however, one might wonder how that nation’s efforts will stem the tide of unaccompanied minors attracted to the promise of a better life in America.

  1. If America had a real president he would not have to protect our borders, we don't and he has the guts to go ahead and get the job done. As for the Mexican government they have no grounds to criticize our nation when they are 1. holding one of our marines, which obama seems to care less about, and 2. they are as more of a problem at our borders than any nation. They should be held accountable for the damage they have been doing at our borders for a long time.

  2. This is NONE of MX's business and they need to stay out of it

  3. Edwardkoziol says:

    Rick should tell Mexico to go F–k themselves and they should worry about their own corrupt country.Mexico biggest business isdrug trafficing.
