    Central America to seek Mexico’s support after Trump win

    Central America to seek Mexico’s support after Trump win

    Published: November 17, 2016 8:49 am On: World


    GUATEMALA CITY/SAN SALVADOR: Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have agreed to join forces and seek support from Mexico to forge a joint strategy in response to Donald Trump winning the US presidency, El Salvador’s foreign minister told Reuters on Wednesday.

    Trump’s election upset has sent shockwaves through Mexico and Central America, which rely heavily on US remittances and bilateral trade.

    President-elect Trump romped to victory in the November 8 election by winning over voters with vows to end illegal immigration and re-examine trade treaties that he said have led US firms to ship jobs south to lower-wage economies.

    Many of the migrants bound for the United States hail from the poor nations of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, and there are concerns that Trump’s promise to deport millions of immigrants would have grave repercussions in Central American countries with few jobs and shaky security.

    On Wednesday, the day after a regional meeting in Honduras, the three countries released a joint statement asking their respective foreign ministries to join forces and formulate positions on jobs, investment and migration to deal with the new US administration together, though the statement did not refer to Mexico.

    But Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, Guatemala’s Jimmy Morales and El Salvador’s leader Salvador Sanchez Ceren, have agreed to seek support from Mexico, said Hugo Martinez, El Salvador’s foreign minister, confirming what another government source told Reuters earlier.

    “What the presidents told us was that aside from this group … we could expand to look for contact with Mexico, at first, and then also with the other Latin American countries,” Martinez said.

    Mexico’s Foreign Ministry did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

    In an interview last week, Humberto Roque Villanueva, Mexico’s deputy interior minister for migration, said he expected deportations of undocumented Mexican migrants in the United States to start rising when Trump takes office Jan. 20 but the process will not begin soon.

    Trump has repeatedly said he plans to build a wall along the US-Mexican border, insisting that Mexico will pay for it.

    PLAN IN ACTION

    The first meeting between the Central American foreign ministers will take place on Thursday in San Salvador, sources said, adding that there is no date yet for when Mexico might join.

    The Central American foreign ministries said they were already looking to strengthen their consular services in the United States and preparing a network of activists, lawyers, non-profits and church leaders to help safeguard against any possible deportation wave.

    Maria Andrea Matamoros, Honduras’ deputy foreign minister, told Reuters she expected the number of migrants bound for the United States to rise before Trump takes office in January.

    “(The wall) is the perfect advertising campaign for a human trafficker, and now, with the election of Trump, that has magnified, and we’re already seeing – incredibly – a rise in the flow of migrants,” she said.

    On Tuesday, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador launched a joint security system to combat gangs and drug smuggling, as well as curtail migration and lower murders in one of the world’s most violent regions.

    The joint security force is part of the so-called “Alliance for Prosperity” plan, which aims to regenerate the region with support from Washington, creating jobs and infrastructure.

    That plan was hatched after a sharp rise in Central American child migrants bound for the United States sparked a crisis for outgoing US President Barack Obama in 2014.

    Speaking at the event in the western Honduran city of Nueva Ocotepeque on Tuesday, President Hernandez said he would meet US lawmakers from both parties to defend the Alliance for Prosperity.

    These nations are not our friends, they are turning themselves into enemies. So now do people understand it's the drug cartels who control everyone in this illegal immigration disaster??!! These governments are controlled by the drug cartels. These governments are behind the illegal immigration flowing into the United States. If things were normal they would be telling their citizens, do not violate the US borders, do not disrespect their sovereignty, do not do this, but instead they do the opposite and encourage it, they lobby for it, and yes, they sponsor it.

    The money made from the drug cartels, gangs, coyotes, child slavery the kick backs to the governments, law enforcement. Not to mention tax free money sent home from the illegals in the US. This is their current economy structure and they have become dependent on the money and our open boarders to support their economies. With the boarders closed and the money drying up they have no idea how they are going to support their countries they have become dependent on US money. They have no idea how they will survive with out it. They don't want these criminals back in their country. They should of cleaned up this mess years ago and broken up these gangs and criminals that are terrorizing their countries. I am sure our government and military would of helped them clean it up if they had asked. They have created the countries they are going to have to live in.

    So that "meeting" had better include a plan to wipe out the gangs, drugs, cartel...and make your OWN country great! Not on OUR dime!

    Off the subject, but just saw again that Keith Ellison looks to be the key leading candidate for Chairman of the DNC! And he is hating on Trump 24/7.

    What about the grave repercussions to the U.S. economy for the last 30 years????

    You couldn't care less with dumping all your poor, uneducated & criminal thieves on the backs of the American taxpayer.

    So suck it up and start taking care of your own people because finally we Americans don't give a hoot about your joint
    effort in trying to shame us racist Americans.

    Exactly. They don't give a hoot about Americans, and they don't give a hoot about illegal aliens, why would someone care more about an illegal alien criminal than a US citizen? They wouldn't and they don't. All these crooked crazy pro-illegal politicians are on the take with the cartels, all they care about is the money and probably now staying alive.
