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.
