Survey: Majority of Mexicans Want Illegal Aliens in Mexico Deported to their Home Countries

Survey: Majority of Mexicans Want Illegal Aliens in Mexico Deported to their Home Countries

Apparently, Mexico is full of a bunch of “racist, white supremacist Nazis,” too.

As Republicans, normal Americans, and even some moderate Democrats are lambasted as “unAmerican” at best and “racist, white supremacist Nazis” at worst for arguing that open borders is a really bad idea, a new survey conducted by The Washington Post and Mexico’s Reforma newspaper finds that the majority of Mexicans want illegal aliens in Mexico deported back to their home countries.

Mexican citizens, it seems, are fed up with the flood of illegal aliens and are frustrated because, according to WaPo, “they take jobs and benefits that should belong to Mexicans.”

Mexicans are deeply frustrated with immigrants after a year of heightened migration from Central America through the country, according to a survey conducted by The Washington Post and Mexico’s Reforma newspaper.

More than 6 in 10 Mexicans say migrants are a burden on their country because they take jobs and benefits that should belong to Mexicans. A 55 percent majority supports deporting migrants who travel through Mexico to reach the United States.

Those findings defy the perception that Mexico — a country that has sent millions of its own migrants to the United States, sending billions of dollars in remittances — is sympathetic to the surge of Central Americans. Instead, the data suggests Mexicans have turned against the migrants transiting through their own country, expressing antipathy that would be familiar to many supporters of President Trump north of the border.

Imagine that! Citizens of countries being flooded by illegal aliens are not happy about it and do not appreciate their hard-earned tax monies diverted to people who shouldn’t be in the country in the first place.

The data breakdown is interesting in that only 7% of Mexicans want illegals to be permitted to stay in Mexico permanently.  The rest of those surveyed want the aliens either to be allowed to temporarily remain until they infiltrate our border or to be deported back where they came from.

WaPo continues:

The Post-Reforma survey finds 7 percent of Mexicans say their country should offer residency to Central American immigrants traveling through Mexico and trying to enter the United States. Another 33 percent support allowing them to stay temporarily while the United States decides whether to admit them. But a 55 percent majority says they should be deported to their home countries.

When Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador agreed to step up Mexico’s immigration enforcement to avert U.S. tariffs, many analysts expected his base to be disillusioned. López Obrador had long advocated for migrants’ rights and the freedom of movement for asylum seekers.

But 51 percent of Mexicans support using the country’s newly formed national guard to combat migration of undocumented immigrants in Mexico, a key provision of the agreement. Just under half of Mexicans have heard about the June agreement, but among those who have, 59 percent favor it ,while 34 percent are opposed.

So the “analysts” were wrong in thinking that Mexico would welcome tens of thousands of illegal aliens flooding into their country.  Color me shocked.

By August, Mexico expects to receive 60,000 asylum seekers who are forced by the United States to wait for their hearings on Mexican soil. López Obrador has said those migrants will be given work permits, but it remains unclear who will provide their shelter or food. Many are likely to spend months in Mexico before they are granted or denied asylum in the United States.

“The number [of migrants] that the federal government is talking about is impossible for us to deal with,” said Miguel Ángel Riquelme Solís, governor of Coahuila, at a news conference.

Like the U. S., Mexico is overwhelmed by the number of illegal aliens and cannot support them.  Something has to be done because Mexicans, like Americans, are fed up with the radical left’s unrealistic, suicidal “open borders” lunacy.

You mean “this proves Mexico is an unsafe country”. I fully expect the ACLU to continue making that argument in a court of law.

    They’re saying Mexico is unsafe because most Mexicans don’t want these people?

    The same could be said of the United States! Does ACLU address that point?

      More specifically, the ACLU is saying Mexico isn’t safe for anyone, Mexicans or human beings from further south alike. That’s part of a current case to stop the “stay in Mexico” policy, regardless of Mexico agreeing or not. I’m musing that perhaps the ACLU will use these poll results to add to the image of Mexico as unsafe.

      As bad as the US is portrayed in certain circles, apparently it is still considered safer than Mexico because public opinion plays virtually no role in how immigrants/ undocumented migrants etc etc. are actually treated. Perhaps the ACLU will not embellish the point further. But they must be thinking about it.

Not diversity, rational and practical. Emigration reform to mitigate the progress of immigration reform and attendant casualties and collateral damage at both ends of the bridge and throughout. Immigration that does not exceed the rate of assimilation and integration before planned parenthood.

GMTA. I characterized it as “‘Antipathy?’ Is that a WaPo dog whistle calling Mexicans racist?”

    Whitey has no monopoly on racism; far from it. As a younger man I played team sports and had lots of black teammates. Wow, they would cut on each other based on the shade of their blackness, and man-o-man were they brutal to African immigrants.

    Living in Texas for most of my adult life, and owning a ranch property where I’ve hired my share of immigrant laborers, you might be amazed to hear how Mexican denigrate Guatemalans and how they both despise Salvadorans. Spanish ancestry versus indigenous ancestry is a big thing to them. There’s a word for that.

    And don’t get me started on how Chinese treat Koreans and Vietnamese or how the Japanese treat the Chinese, etc.

    And you know what? The proper response to all of this is “so what?” Getting everybody all agitated about this stuff is just part of the neo-Marxist strategy to tear our society apart so it can be rebuilt as a Marxist paradise. THIS TIME they’ll get the BEST MEN on it and make it work. This time.

The reason they didn’t care before is that these undesirables were just passing through, and who knows, maybe some money from them found its way into the Mexican economy.

Now that they’re actually forced to keep some of them, they don’t want them at all.

I’m pretty sure Dems have given up on 2020 Presidential Election. Their efforts now are just to push that Overton window as far left as possible.

Most of the elite in Mexico are white.

    Some of that is merely geographical. Mexico is about 15% white, with the vast majority white/Indian. The whites mostly settled are Mexico City, where there are far more opportunities and educational facilities. I note that Tijuana now has a very strong economy and a highly educated workforce that is dark than their counterparts in Mexico City. BTW, Tijuana hates these caravaners.

Waiting for AOC and her sister dingbats of the apocalypse to denounce Mexico and Mexicans as racist (crickets)

Well, whaddya know – they can dish it out, but they can’t take it.

Middle class Mexicans think remarkably like middle class Americans so this is no surprise to me.

This is one poll i can believe in.
