#1 As for Trump's statements, AMLO said: "With all due respect, although you have the right to express it, 'America First' is a fallacy because until the end of times, even beyond national borders, justice and universal fraternity will prevail."

Translation:

I am very concerned about our cartel's market share.

#12 Put a 50% tariff on remittances to Mexico and this shit would stop, plus you could pay for the wall

#13 Remittances are the most powerful tool to gain immediate and widespread public reaction in Mexico. The breadth of the population that depends on it would immediately react with high vigor to stop the illegal migrant flow through Mexico in days. Do it !time to play really really hard all with these parasites.

#14 I have no idea why Trump didn't tax remittances on day 1 of office. It was a sure winner.

#15 Yeah, "justice and universal fraternity" -- until a Mexican national kills an American in a civilized state and is up for the death penalty. Then the Mexican government is obsessed with protecting their guy -- never mind the American victims.
