Two months ago during the launch of his presidential campaign, Donald Trump told his supporters Mexico was not sending its best people to America.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. And they’re bringing those problems with us (them.) They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And, some, I assume are good people.”
Today Rush Limbaugh confirmed that Donald Trump was right.
Mexico is sending undesirables here and when we sent them back, Mexican officials traveled here to complain.
Via the Rush Limbaugh website:
Jeff Lord, who writes for the American Spectator, also has a piece for the Conservative Review he has out now. He’s just been hired by CNN to do analysis and commentary, and he sent me a note late last night and he was digging around… He’s been intrigued by this kerfuffle that Trump started in which he claimed that Mexico is sending us their human debris. Mexico is purposely sending us their worst.
Mexico is getting rid of the people they don’t want; they’re sending them here. And he said that he had a faint memory of a news story that would actual confirm this, and he searched and searched and he found it, and I’m now holding that story right here my formerly nicotine-stained fingers. It’s from the Associated Press. It was published atArizonaCentral.com, January 16th of 2008. So almost eight years ago. Not 7-1/2 years ago, this story ran.
“A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora traveled to Tucson to make the case against Arizona’s new employer sanctions law[.] The lawmakers say it will have a devastating affect [sic] on the Mexican state. At a news conference Tuesday, they said Sonora cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools it will face as illegal Mexican workers in Arizona return to their hometowns without jobs or money.” In other words, the Mexican government sent representatives, the equivalent of our state senators and representatives…
“The law, which took effect Jan.1, punishes employers who knowingly hire individuals who don’t have valid legal documents to work,” and those people get deported. “Businesses found violating the law face suspension or loss of a business license. The [Mexican] lawmakers were to travel to Phoenix Wednesday for a breakfast meeting with Hispanic legislators.” The Sonora delegation, rather, was going to “travel to Phoenix Wednesday for a breakfast meeting with Hispanic legislators. … ‘How can they pass a law like this?’ asked Mexican Rep. Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales. ‘There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona,’ Amparano[-Gamez] said in Spanish.”
In other words, what Trump has been saying is right: Mexico does actively send undesirables here. When we send them back, Mexico sent a delegation to Arizona eight years ago to complain about our deporting them. They don’t want them back.
