    Mexican Government 'Regrets' Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Signing Border Security Law

    By Michael Oleaga
    First Posted: Jun 11, 2015 03:26 PM EDT

    The Mexican government said it was disappointed with Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signing a new law strengthening border security.

    In a Spanish-language statement from Mexico's Foreign Ministry, the government "regrets" Abbott's decision to enact HB11, a $800 million "comprehensive" border security legislation that includes the hiring of 250 additional border troopers.

    According to the Mexican government, Texas authorities will replace the U.S. National Guard with troopers trained by the Department of Public Safety (DPS) of Texas. In addition, Mexican officials believe the legislation promotes a "division" between both societies and contradicts the principles and values of the U.S. and Mexico's bilateral relationship.

    "Mexico has expressed full opening for a frank and direct dialogue with the government of Texas on border security from a holistic perspective that allows direct resources towards the consolidation of a safe, efficient and competitive border to facilitate the legitimate flow of goods and people and to promote prosperity and development on both sides of the border," the Mexican Foreign Ministry stated.

    The Mexican government stated they are aware the law's implementation will not affect the "rights and dignity" of Mexican nationals.

    "We also reiterate our commitment to continue working with the U.S. government on security issues on the basis of shared responsibility, trust and mutual respect" the statement continued.

    Abbott signed the bill on Tuesday. The legislation also calls for additional training and equipment on the border and "give prosecutors additional tools necessary to crack down on criminal cartel enterprises involved in human and drug smuggling."

    "We cannot be naďve to the threat posed by drug cartels and transnational gangs. And Texas will not sit idly by while the federal government fails to do its job and secure the border," said Abbott in a statement. "I'm proud to sign legislation to implement measures that will help provide for the safety and security of communities across Texas."

    The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, one of the three federal immigration agencies under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, updated its apprehensions of undocumented immigrant children data and most have been encountered in Texas. Based on CBP's figures of the 2015 fiscal year so far, 13,249 undocumented immigrant children -- ages 17 and younger -- have been apprehended at the Rio Grande Sector -- one of several sectors in Texas, although it is a 60-percent drop compared to the 2014 fiscal year.

    I do not think that a government that cannot even maintain order within their borders can be counted on to share border responsibilities. Grow up, Mexico. I will stick with Abbott. Sometimes slow, I can be, naďve, not so much.

    Oh, eat me.

    You law-breaking self-centered bunch of derelicts down there who have no respect for our country, our borders, our people .... do you really think for one second there is any normal American left standing up here who gives one crap what you think? Well, let me tell you, THERE IS NOT ... even one.

    What you're seeing Texas do will soon be done by every state in our Union up here, because Americans are fed-up with your country raping our jobs, economy and treasury. And while you can ride the tide a little for now with our treasonous politicians, get ready for the future, because what's going on now is going to end and end in such a manner that it never ever happens again.

    When she announced her candidacy, Hillary Clinton, tried to claim that Demos are for ordinary people. The FOX commentator said that a lot of Americans don't trust Hillary, because of her secret e-mails and the Clintons foundation slush funds. I'm hope that that is true, because at the moment there's nobody out there who is making a believable presentation to the majority of Americans.

    Scott Walker shows promise, but he's biding his time.

    Any true Americans will not cast a vote for Walker, any more, I do not believe. He came out this past week saying that on fast track trade agreement he sides with Obama. He is not pro-American labor, as I've been saying previously. His positive comments really fell on Numbers. Several pro Walker dropped him in a heart beat.

    Yep, he sure did. I missed it, thank you for posting about it. Here's a Breitbart article about it:

    Scott Walker Pushes Obamatrade On Eve Of Vote

    by Matthew Boyle11 Jun 2015Washington, DC1678

    Despite staying largely silent on the issue—he’s quietly supported it for weeks, but hasn’t said anything at all in quite a long time—Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker crossed most conservatives by coming out in support of Obamatrade on Thursday evening in an interview with Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin.

    Walker, Bloomberg’s Halperin and John McCormick wrote, “expressed agreement with President Barack Obama on the pressing issue of fast-track trade legislation.”

    “Walker said he supports giving Obama the authority to submit trade agreements to Congress for an expedited, up-or-down vote without amendments,” they wrote, before quoting Walker himself.

    “If we don’t go down this path, we’re going to be at a competitive disadvantage, and so I think it just makes sense,” Walker said.

    “At the same time, like many Republicans who support granting the trade authority recent past presidents have had, Walker said the deal would allow the Republican-controlled Congress to review Obama’s actions,” the Bloomberg reporters wrote.

    “If this president were to give them a bad deal, they should hold him accountable and vote it down,” Walker added. “They have every right to do that under the proposal.”

    But Congress would be limited in its ability to act. Granting Obama fast-track authority lowers vote the vote threshold in the Senate so a deal could pass with 51 votes, rather than 60 needed to block a filibuster. And without amendments, there’s really no way to stop it in the Senate. In fact, throughout the history of fast-track with trade deals, no trade deal has ever been stopped by Congress after it started on fast-track.

    Walker didn’t in this interview—at least not in the part that Bloomberg published—discuss whether or not he believes it’s acceptable for the president to continue keeping the text of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) portion of Obamatrade that Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) would fast track hidden from the American people in the basement of the U.S. Capitol in a secret room.

    Since Walker is not a member of Congress, there is no way he could have read the text of the deal before making these comments. He also didn’t discuss what he thinks about the fact that not even members of Congress are allowed to read the even-more-secretive Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) or Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) deals, which are among the other deals that would be fast-tracked by Obamatrade if TPA passes the House of Representatives on Friday, despite the fact nobody—including Walker—knows what’s in those deals.

    Back in early May, according to the New York Times, Walker came out in support in of T-TIP—even though there is no way humanly possible for Walker to know what is in that deal since the text of it is secret even from members of Congress.

    “Their generation will ultimately grow stronger, I believe, when we approve a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership,” Walker said.

    In early March, Walker was asked at the Iowa Agriculture Summit if he supports giving the president Trade Promotion Authority (TPA)—and he said he did then, and that he supported TPP, even though since he’s not a member of Congress there’s no way he could have had any clue what was in the deal.

    “I do [think the president should have TPA], and I think, not only should the President have it, the President should be a more active partner with the states. Part of my experience, some of you may know, comes from not just traveling abroad, talking about trade, but actually traveling with your Governor,” Walker said.

    We also need to make sure that we go forward with a strong plan for free, open, and fair trade around the world which means not only on the Pacific Side with the TPP, we need to have that because if we don’t do that China will set the standard for trade with that part of the world. We need to be the ones to lead that so that it is free and fair and open. We can compete against anyone in the world if we have free and open trade. We also need that on the other side, in the Atlantic, so that we have that same process.

    So while Walker’s support of Obamatrade is nothing new—and it’s clear he is doing so without having any clue what he’s talking about since he has no access to any of the documents—his decision to double down on the eve of the big House vote after House Ways and Means Committee chairman.

    Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) 58% just massively discredited himself in interviews and testimony before the House Rules Committee could end up becoming a political boondoggle for him, just like the previous mistake he made in hiring pro-amnesty aide Liz Mair.

    Walker corrected that mistake by promptly relieving Mair of her position then learning immigration policy inside and out, but in this case he’s clearly listening to Ryan on trade rather than the people who would have steered him in a direction that’s less part of the political establishment.

    It’s unclear whether Walker will course-correct, or if he’ll stay on this pro-Obamatrade path. But one thing’s clear: If he sticks with Obamatrade, and it passes the House of Representatives, it’s hard to see a future where he doesn’t end up falling in the polls alongside Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 93%—another Obamatrade proponent who’s remained stagnant since endorsing the president’s trade agenda after an initially successful presidential campaign launch—and one where another candidate who stands for American workers against the donor class on immigration and trade moving into his place.

    “Scott Walker: Pro TPA,” Ryan’s flack Brendan Buck Tweeted with a link to Walker’s interview with Bloomberg.

    Buck was the spokesman for Ryan’s largely unsuccessful vice presidential campaign, and rejoined Ryan’s congressional office after Ryan lost alongside running mate Mitt Romney to Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

    Walker’s spokeswoman AshLee Strong, who used to work forSen. John Thune (R-SD) 52%—a senator who supported Obamatrade in the Senate—further explained Walker’s position to Breitbart News by arguing that this is somehow “free trade.”

    “Governor Walker is for free trade,” Strong said in an email to Breitbart News. “He has been to Europe, China, Japan and the UK to discuss how trade benefits Wisconsin workers. TPA could pave the way for positive trade agreements for our country. If the president negotiates a bad deal, the Republican Congress can and should hold him accountable by killing it when they vote on the final trade pact.”

    There’s several inaccuracies and misconceptions in Strong’s quote. First off, as noted above, it’s incorrect to argue that Congress can stop a pact from passing when it’s on fast-track—in fact, in the history of fast-track no deal that has started on fast-track has ever been stopped. There’s no reason whatsoever to believe that will change under Obamatrade.

    Secondly, and more important, as Sen. Sessions noted in his final critical alert against Obamatrade, this is not free trade.

    “Finally, it must be observed that this is not a ‘free trade’ deal,” Sessions wrote.

    It is, as Daniel DiMicco explained, a ‘unilateral trade disarmament’ and ‘the enablement of foreign mercantilism,’ whereby we open our markets to new foreign imports and they keep their non-tariff barriers that close their markets to ours. President Obama refuses to answer questions about the impact on unemployment, wage stagnation, and trade deficits. He refuses because the answer is all three will get worse. For instance, a study published in the Wall Street Journal showed that—due to barriers to U.S. auto exports—the deal would increase foreign transportation imports over our exports by nearly four-fold.

    Walker could have, like former Texas Gov. Rick Perry did, easily walked back his previous pro-Obamatrade statements as they were in fact far less committal than Perry’s were. But he chose not to–and is now not just doubling down, but tripling down in support of this monstrosity.

    Well, that blows it for Walker for me. He's just talking the talking on American Workers, but clearly has no intention of walking the walk. So, that pretty much leaves US Republicans with no viable candidate at all ..... yet.

    So I'll be waiting for that Dark Horse to show up.

    Why aren't we stripping the Catholic Church and all these other phony 501 C 3 "charity" tax frauds of their tax-exempt tax status for violating tax code that prohibits political action?
