    Mexico closes US owned plant for refusal to sell ventilators

    Mexico closes US owned plant for refusal to sell ventilators


    Associated PressApril 10, 2020, 8:30 PM EDT



    TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — The northern Mexico border state of Baja California closed a plant run by the Anglo-American health care firm Smiths Medical Friday for allegedly refusing to sell ventilators to Mexican hospitals.


    Baja California Gov. Jaime Bonilla said the firm refused to sell Mexico some of the machines, which are badly needed to treat patients with coronavirus.


    Bonilla said the firm had continued to operate its assembly plant under the argument it provided an “essential” service, when most non-essential plants have been ordered closed to combat the pandemic.


    But Bonilla ordered the Smiths Medical factory closed, because he argued it was providing no such essential service to Mexicans, and thus was not obeying health emergency contingency measures.


    “We said to them ‘if you want us to consider you essential, you have to provide some benefit to the people of Baja California, by selling us ventilators, because we need them,’" Bonilla said. “They said ‘no, we are not going to sell you anything, we are just going to continue to use your labor’.”
    Bonilla accused the company of contacting Mexico's foreign relations secretary and the U.S.


    Ambassador to try to stave off the closure order. But he vowed no to cave in to the pressure.


    The company did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Industry sources have argued the factory is an export-only plant that operates under special rules that allow it to import raw materials and parts duty-free, on the condition they be re-exported and not sold on the local market.


    Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the company is owned by U.K.-based Smiths Group plc.


    Mexico now has 3,844 case of the new coronavirus, with 233 deaths nationwide.

    Time for Mexicans to put up the capital, invest in their own country, open their own manufacturing plants all over the country, and put their own people to work with a livable wage.

    Start an economic boom in Mexico and Central America because we have 40 million to deport including YOUR DACA! No amnesty and no path to stay.

    These illegal aliens send $50 billion back over the border...how about they go home and work there!

    Same for Made in USA...bring our jobs back! No illegal aliens and no foreign work visas.
