Mexico paying to stop U.S. from deporting illegals

mxcngngmbrsYou can’t make this stuff up. Instead of trying to help their own citizens, and improve the country, the government of Mexico is funneling money to its citizens living illegally in the U.S. to get them to stay in the U.S. 

Breitbart has the story,

According to a report from National Public Radio, the Mexican government through its 50 consulates around the United States has been helping to fund low-income illegal immigrants to apply for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA — which shields illegal immigrants from deportation and allows them to work in the U.S.

NPR’s report details the story of Tania Guzman, an illegal immigrant who said the cost of applying for DACA worried her, but she was able to afford it after her pro-bono lawyer from Public Counsel told her she could access financial help from the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles.

Mexico paid for all Guzman’s attorney fees and application fees, according to NPR. In the end Guzman told NPR she paid just $50.

The report explains that since 2012, the year DACA began, the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles has assisted more then 260 Mexican illegal immigrants apply for protections under DACA.

So, let’s get this straight. Instead of improving their own country, they’d rather keep more of their own citizens in the U.S., where they disproportionately use social services, draining the U.S. financially. Don’t bother improving Mexico, and drag the U.S. down too. What a self-defeating attitude, that reveals a lack of concern for their own citizens.
