The Mexican Interior Secretary signing the memorandum with our own Janet NapolitanoThe Boston Bombing and its aftermath has (quite rightly) dominated the news, but during the same time period the Main Stream Media has paid disgracefully little attention to the Washington D.C. visits of top Mexican officials and the signing of a “Memorandum of Understanding” with the Obama Regime.
Get ready for more of this—President Obama is scheduled to visit Mexico on May 2nd and 3rd.
The visits are yet a further example of Mexico’s meddling in American internal affairs—see Why Do We Put Up With This? Mexico’s New President Enrique Pena Nieto Openly Plans To Meddle In U.S. and Mexican Foreign Ministry Meddling In Amnesty Debate—Where Is U.S. Government (And GOP)?) The Mexican meddlers are colluding with the Obama Regime to facilitate the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge bill that the Treason Lobby wants to ram through Congress.
Further, their visits, and their attendant Memorandum of Understanding, also give us an idea of what the Obama Administration will do it if it fails to obtain an amnesty through the legislative route.
Mexican Foreign Minister Jose Antonio Meade Kuribreña visited Washington D.C. on April 19th, meeting with Secretary of State John Kerry and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
According to the website of the Mexican Foreign Ministry (Secretaría De Relaciones Exteriores, or SRE)”
…Meade and Kerry endorsed the commitment of both governments to cooperation…in the many issues that comprise the ample bilateral agenda. They agreed on the importance of taking full advantage of the links between the societies, the complementarities of the economies, and the political points of agreement between the governments.That’s bland diplomat-speak, but you can assume that

referred to the benefits for both societies of the adoption of laws and public policies that reinforce North America as a competitive and innovative region.This sounds suspiciously like the North American Union stuff, or something similar.
Of course, immigration had to be brought up:
“….Meade again recognized the support that President Barack Obama has given to the process of migratory reform in his country [the U.S.]. He [Meade] stated that the government of Mexico will promptly accompany, within its scope of action, the debate that takes place within the American political system.”This expression “promptly accompany” sounds awkward,even in Spanish. But taken as a whole and considering the context, the sentence’s meaning is clear enough: the Mexican government follows U.S. immigration legislation closely, meddles freely and plans to continue this policy.
And why not? Our government never reprimands Mexican politicians and diplomats for meddling. In fact, our government assists Mexican meddling. Why stop now?
Meade met with Secretary Napolitano, and the Mexican foreign minister “referred to the collaboration for an increasingly more efficient administration of the border.”
More efficient for whom? Illegal aliens and drug smugglers?
Foreign Minister Meade also
emphasized the role of the coordination with the Department of Security [U.S. Homeland Security, that is] as part of the work of assistance and consular protection that the Mexican consular network carries out in the United States.Emphasis added. In other words, the vast Mexican consular network carries on its meddling on U.S. soil and Janet Napolitano is helping them.
The SRE comunicado ends with the statement that the government of Mexico
…reaffirms its determination to promote the interests and protect the rights of the Mexicans abroad, regardless of their migratory status.Well, that’s Mexican diplomatic Standard Operating Procedure regarding Mexican illegal aliens in the United States.
The U.S. State Department did release a transcript of the press conference held by Meade and Secretary of State Kerry. The Mexican Foreign Minister said, in English, that
“Secretary Kerry and myself have just concluded a very productive meeting. We identified priorities for our work in the coming weeks and months on many of the key components of a broad bilateral agenda. We touched upon education, investment, infrastructure, border security. We talked about the importance of security cooperation. We talked and identified and welcomed many of the issues that are now being discussed in the U.S. Congress. We welcomed the introduction of the immigration reform bill in the U.S. Senate. We welcomed the fact that that concept be debated seriously and something constructively could at some point be achieved. That’s an issue that’s relevant for Mexico as well.Two days previous to Meade’s visit, Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, Mexico’s Secretario de Gobernación, or “Interior Secretary”, paid a visit to our capital.

So why is Mexico’s Interior Minister visiting? At least a Foreign Minister, by his very job description, deals with foreigners. But the Interior Minister?
Well, it turns out he has plenty of business to carry out with our government officials as well.
According to the SEGOB bulletin #73, Osorio Chong and a retinue of Mexican officials met in various meetings with a number of U.S. officials, including Janet Napolitano. They discussed Obama’s upcoming trip to Mexico, and they signed a “Memorandum of Cooperation” dealing with
prevention of border violence, coordinated action in the area of public security and strengthening of currently existing strategies of cooperation.Also, Osorio Chong concluded his time in the U.S. capital

…with a visit in the Instituto Cultural Mexicano with leaders of the Hispanic and Mexican community, and with academics and specialists in Mexico and its bilateral relationship with the United States.My theory: This Memorandum of Understanding tells us what Obama might do if we are somehow able to stop the Gang of Eight’s Amnesty Bill in the Congress.
After all, Obama has been very aggressive in utilizing Executive Orders to change policy without Congressional approval. Another technique: simply have the federal bureaucracy issue a regulation. The Obama Department of Labor attempted to do this with the proposed family farm labor restrictions, see here and here. And, of course, in immigration matters, the Regime has just unilaterally decided to not enforce the law.
The surnames of Mexico’s Foreign and Interior Ministers are interesting. Bear in mind that in the Spanish-speaking world, people have two surnames, the apellido paterno (corresponding to our Anglosphere surnames) and the apellido materno (corresponding to our mother’s maiden names). See my previous article here.
The Foreign Minister’s apellido paterno is Meade, of British Isles origin, but it’s been in Mexico since the 1800s at least. The Foreign Minister’s apellido materno is Kuribreña, a curious amalgamation of two surnames, Kuri (Lebanese) and Breña (Spanish).
In the case of the interior minister, his apellido paterno is Osorio (Spanish) and his apellido materno is Chong, and if you look at his photograph above you can see he has strong Chinese features.
It’s not that uncommon to find such non-Spanish surnames in the Mexican elite. But they don’t make a big deal out of it, and they don’t expect them to behave differently due to their ancestry. For example, the fact that Meade must have ancestors from the British Isles (and maybe even the United States) doesn’t mean that he would favor illegal immigrants from the Anglosphere.
So here’s this “Memorandum of Understanding”. If the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge bill is defeated in Congress, my guess is that Obama could simply sign a “Memorandum of Understanding” with Mexico to guarantee amnesty or a path to citizenship or anything he wants.
Of course, it would be a gross attack on U.S. sovereignty—not to mention an attack on the prerogatives of the U.S. Congress, supposedly the lawmaking body of our federal government.
But then, when has the Constitution stopped Obama from doing what he wants?
Even worse, how often have any GOP representatives or senators called Obama out for overstepping his authority?
Not often enough, that’s for sure.
