Mexico Protests National Guard at the Border… Rick Perry Refuses to Stand Down
What goes around, comes around. The United States hasn’t been acting like a very good ally to its friends around the world–leaving Iraq to dissolve into chaos and demanding that Israel accede to the demands of the radical Islamic terrorists of Hamas–and, in its turn, Mexico isn’t acting much like an ally to the United States.
It’s bad enough that they continue to hold a jailed U.S. Marine on shaky weapons smuggling charges despite evidence of his innocent intent and many pleas for his release. Worse, they have failed to control elements of their own military, who, corrupted by Mexican cartel drug money, actively protect the smugglers as they make their way across the U.S. border.
In fact, not only have they failed on their side to stem the flood of illegal immigration that so often passes through Mexico on its way to America, they are now protesting Texan attempts to secure its border, as well.
