    Mexican president rebuffs Trump on wall executive order

    Mexican president rebuffs Trump on wall executive order

    01/25/17 10:22 PM EST



    Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto reaffirmed Wednesday that Mexico will not pay for a border wall, in response to President Donald Trump's executive actions on immigration.

    Trump signed two executive orders Wednesday, one mandating the construction of the wall and the reinforcement of internal immigration enforcement, and the other punishing so-called "sanctuary cities."

    "Far from uniting us, it divides us," Peña Nieto said in a recorded video message. "Mexico does not believe in walls."

    Peña Nieto said that Mexican consulates in the United States would "become authentic defenders of the rights of migrants."


    Mexico operates the largest single-nation consular network in the world, with 50 consulates across the United States.

    Two Mexican cabinet secretaries were in meetings with top Trump administration officials at the White House as Trump announced the orders at the Department of Homeland Security.

    Secretaries of Foreign Relations Luis Videgaray and of the Economy Ildefonso Guajardo will continue preliminary talks Thursday on the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

    Construction of a border wall and the renegotiation or withdrawal from NAFTA were key campaign promises for Trump. After pledging that Mexico will pay for the project, Trump has said that the U.S. will front the money and be reimbursed later.

    Peña Nieto is scheduled to meet Trump in Washington next week. Several reports indicated Peña Nieto could cancel his trip as retaliation for the announcement to build the wall. He made no mention of the visit in his brief remarks.

    Several opposition politicians in Mexico demanded the cancellation, and senators from Peña Nieto's own party said they would support the president if he chose to stay home.

    Peña Nieto said in his address he had consulted his response with the country's Senate and governors.

    "Mexico offers, and demands, respect," Peña Nieto said.

    "Mexico reaffirms its friendship with the people of the United States, and its will to reach agreements with its government. Agreements that favor Mexico and Mexicans."

    You are not friends with the people of the United States. Are you insane? You insult US, you rob US, you kill US, you drain US, you worry US. That is not friendship. That is violent and criminal parasitic action against a neighbor.

    The Mexican government has a long way to go to repair the damage you have caused our people and nation. It's going to take many years for Americans to ever feel again if we ever really did that Mexico is our friend. Americans are never going to be again like we've been the past 30 years. We will never again let our own government sell US out or let other countries take advantage of US. That will never happen again, so your free ride on our backs is over and you must make adjustments in your nation to take care of your own people.
