    Alert: Mexican government now openly interfering in U.S. elections, mobilizing permanent residents to stop Trump

    Mexican consulates helping permanent residents register to vote in transparent attempt at stopping Trump
    By Alex Thomas -


    (INTELLIHUB) — One might say it was only a matter of time, but it has now been confirmed that the country of Mexico has joined with hundreds of Soros funded hard-left activist groups in their desperate and often times illegal crusade to stop businessman Donald Trump from becoming president.

    That’s right, a foreign nation is openly interfering with a U.S. presidential election and no ones seems to care.

    With little fanfare, the Washington Post recently published a stunning piece detailing the efforts by the Mexican government to stop Donald Trump from becoming president and, despite halfhearted denials by Mexican officials, these efforts openly amount to a foreign country purposefully trying to alter the outcome of the most important election in the United States.

    The scheme involves mobilizing Mexican diplomats for the first time to “assist” immigrants in gaining U.S. citizenship so they can then vote in the election, presumably against Trump. You heard that right, foreign diplomats are working to get their citizens confirmed as U.S. citizens so that they can then vote for the candidate that the Mexican government thinks should be the next American president.

    “Officially, Mexico says it respects U.S. sovereignty and has no strategy to influence the result of the presidential race. Yet Mexican diplomats are mobilizing for the first time to assist immigrants in gaining U.S. citizenship, hosting free workshops on naturalization,” reported the Washington Post.

    “This is a historic moment where the Mexican consulate will open its doors to carry out these types of events in favor of the Mexican community,” Adrian Sosa, a spokesman for the consulate in Chicago, said before an event on March 19. In Dallas, about 250 permanent residents attended the consulate’s first “citizenship clinic” in February and another 150 in its second in March. In Las Vegas, the turnout topped 500″, the Post report continued.

    Laughably the report then goes on to say that Sosa understands the fine line that separates participation from interference and that the consulate “only hosts” the event while community organizations (see Soros funded) offer the advice.

    When you consider the fact that Donald Trump plans to cut off the unprecedented influx of illegal immigrants from dozens of Latin American countries, you can begin to understand how much Mexico has to lose which is apparently enough for them to illegally get directly involved at attempting to shape U.S. politics through the use of their own diplomats and various interconnected hard-left activist groups.
    Make no mistake, this is absolutely a foreign nation attempting to circumvent the will of the American people at the highest level and the fact that our government seems to care little for this flagrant corruption is yet another example of why someone like Trump has taken the country by storm.

    The startling fact of the matter is that we can now add the country of Mexico to the plethora of powerful interests targeting Donald Trump and his supporters which includes the Republican establishment, Soros funded hard-left groups, and the mainstream media.

    Stop Trump Movement Gets Boost From Mexico's Efforts in U.S.

    Eric Martin and Nacha CattanMar 21, 2016 7:50 am ET


    (Bloomberg) -- Mexico is mounting an unprecedented effort to turn its permanent residents in the U.S. into citizens, a status that would enable them to vote -- presumably against Donald Trump.

    Officially, Mexico says it respects U.S. sovereignty and has no strategy to influence the result of the presidential race. Yet Mexican diplomats are mobilizing for the first time to assist immigrants in gaining U.S. citizenship, hosting free workshops on naturalization.

    "This is a historic moment where the Mexican consulate will open its doors to carry out these types of events in favor of the Mexican community," Adrian Sosa, a spokesman for the consulate in Chicago, said before an event on March 19. In Dallas, about 250 permanent residents attended the consulate’s first "citizenship clinic" in February and another 150 in its second in March. In Las Vegas, the turnout topped 500.

    Underscoring the fine line that separates participation from interfering in another country’s election, Sosa noted that the consulate only hosts the event but it’s community organizations who offer the advice.

    Mexico may have the most at stake but it’s not alone among U.S. allies bewildered by -- and worried about -- the reality-television star’s success in the Republican primaries. Trump, who launched his campaign with invective directed at Mexico and a promise to build a border wall (with a “big beautiful door”), identified himself last week as his own top foreign-policy adviser.

    "I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things," Trump said on MSNBC when asked who he speaks with consistently on foreign policy. "My primary consultant is myself and I have a good instinct for this stuff."

    With even senior U.S. Republicans, such as 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney, pledging to contest Trump’s nomination to the end, views from other major capitals comprise both concern and calm. An official close to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who asked not be named because he was not authorized to speak publicly said a Trump presidency would be a risk for the global economy and security. Trump has targeted Japan, along with Mexico and China, as nations where the U.S. is "getting absolutely crushed on trade."

    The government in China still believes it’s too early to focus on Trump given that he hasn’t yet won the Republican nomination, according to a Foreign Ministry official who asked not to be named. The sentiment is shared in France, where President Francois Hollande’s administration says that the U.S. election takes a backseat to addressing migrant crisis, the war in Syria and terrorism threats.

    Right to Vote

    Joel Diaz doesn’t want to wait to see how it all turns out. The Mexican-American, who has been a permanent resident of the U.S. for six years, arrived at the Mexican consulate in Chicago on Saturday with his wife and four adult sons to register all of them as U.S. citizens in order to vote against Trump.

    "We’re very worried," Diaz, 47, an evangelical pastor, said. "If he wins there will be a lot of damage against a lot of people here, and to us as Hispanics, as Mexicans."

    Laura Espinosa, deputy consul in Mexico’s consulate in Las Vegas, said the main goal of the program is citizenship, and while that includes the right to vote, the government doesn’t press people to do so. "Those who use this to vote, that’s up to each individual," said Espinosa, who confirmed that most consulates have begun citizenship campaigns. "We don’t have any opinion on that, because that would be totally interfering in internal affairs of the country."

    The government in Mexico City is holding off on engaging the Trump campaign directly until he becomes the nominee, said Francisco Guzman, chief of staff to Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. Speaking with reporters on March 1, Guzman said the government plans to communicate with the campaigns of the nominees once they’re chosen and try to dispel what it considers misinformation about Mexico and Mexicans.

    Campaign Rhetoric

    The public-relations offensive now under way includes using news outlets and social media to highlight the strides Mexicans have made in business, the arts and academia in the U.S., said Paulo Carreno, the former spokesman of Citigroup Inc.’s Mexico unit who oversees the country’s international branding strategy.

    Promoting Mexico in the U.S., from its scholars to artists, is meant "not to influence an election, but a whole generation and those that follow," Carreno said in an e-mailed response to questions. "The strategy will be an important anchor in our consular network in the country."

    While Guzman said the administration understands the difference between campaign rhetoric and governing proposals, Pena Nieto this month in an interview with newspaper El Universal compared Trump’s rhetoric to that of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

    The urgency and their numbers underscore why Mexican-Americans can have an impact.

    About 12 million Mexicans live in the U.S. and almost half lack legal status, according to a November study by the Pew Research Center. About 2.7 million legal Mexican permanent residents of the U.S. are eligible to apply to become citizens, according to The New Americans Campaign, a nonpartisan group that helps people access naturalization services.

    Ali Noorani, executive director of National Immigration Forum, a non-partisan Washington-based policy group that advocates on behalf of immigrants, said Trump’s rhetoric and proposals have spurred interest in registering to vote among Mexican immigrant communities, particularly in Nevada, Colorado and Virginia.

    Boosting turnout among immigrant voters could help tip the scale in the election, said Julian Zelizer, a professor of history and public affairs at Princeton University.

    "Trump is exactly the kind of Republican who could mobilize legalized immigrant voters and others sympathetic to liberalized immigration policy," Zelizer said in an e-mailed response to questions. "This has been one issue where he has not been very vague and taking an extremely tough and aggressive stance. I suspect that if he was the nominee you could see very high turnout in certain states for Democrats as a result of this issue."

    Why would legal Mexican immigrants who are in our country legally and eligible for naturalization vote against Trump when doing so is shooting themselves in the foot? Do citizen-eligible Mexicans not want to keep their jobs and businesses? Do citizen-eligible Mexicans not want to keep more of their incomes? Do citizen-eligible Mexicans not want the same things all citizens want?

    I think new citizens want to keep their jobs, get a job if they don't have one, keep their business or start a business if they'd like to, so personally I think they will want the same things we want and that means they'll want Donald Trump for President.
