To the surprise of everyone except me, POTUS 45 Donald Trump succeeded in making deals with Mexico and countries in Central America to decrease the number of non-Mexicans arriving at the U.S. border through Mexico. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador actually respected Trump and spoke well of him publicly. But ever since Joe Biden has been president and opened the borders for the Great Replacement, AMLO’s rhetoric has drastically changed. He’s meddling in U.S. affairs again, most recently in a sustained attack on Texas Governor Greg Abbott, warning that if Abbott wants to win reelection he better not “mistreat” Mexicans in the United States.

The Mexican president frequently rants about defending Mexicans in the United States, demands we do what he says, and attacks American politicians such as Cuban-American senators Marco Rubio of Florida and Ted Cruz of Texas.

A meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken on September 12 in Mexico City, where the two discussed immigration, provided AMLO the chance to say immigration must not be used in the “electoral process,” and twice attack Abbott, once the next day, and then again eight days later.

Among other things, State Department spokesman Ned Price reported in his readout, Blinken and AMLO discussed “our ongoing cooperation and efforts to humanely address irregular migration in the Americas” [Secretary Blinken’s Meeting with Mexican President López Obrador, State.gov, September 12, 2022].

“Secretary Blinken reiterated our deep appreciation for Mexico’s coordination on economic, security, and migration issues as we seek to advance our shared priorities,” Price explained.

Next day, AMLO discussed the meeting at a news conference:

There was also some discussion of the subject of migration, the interest to continue working together and of taking care of the human rights of the migrants. …

And we proposed that migration should not be utilized as part of the electoral process. And they agreed.

So AMLO demanded that Americans not discuss immigration this election year—and our own Secretary of State agreed!

But there’s more from AMLO:

And so, in an open manner, as we like and as it should be, we said that we would not remain silent if migrants were mistreated and much less if Mexicans are mistreated.

“Migrants” mistreated? They have the run of our country. Biden has released more than 1 million since he took office.

Then AMLO went off on a rant about the border wall.

“And I spoke about the wall, that President Biden has said that he is not going to construct a wall and he is keeping his word,” he said:

He is the only president of the two parties who has no wall construction project. We have already spoken of the late Bush, of his son, who also was president, Mr. Clinton, Obama, all of them, President Trump, constructed sections of wall and President Biden is the first in many years not to build a wall.”

That subject channeled into Abbott:

Nevertheless, with propagandistic purposes, because I think that he wants to be re-elected, the governor of Texas is talking about constructing a wall. We do not view that well, with all respect, that is vile propaganda. And our paisanos [fellow Mexicans] who are in Texas, well they are not going to let themselves be deceived, because, with all respect, that is politicking.

Later in the press conference, AMLO delved into the globalist dreams he apparently shares with our secretary of state, which include ”consolidating the region of North America.

“We agree with that,” AMLO continued:

Not only did I tell him that we are in agreement with consolidating us as a region, including the three countries Canada, U.S. and Mexico, but that we were also in favor of the unity of all the American continent … as the European community first emerged and became the European Union, thus we aspire to the dream of [Simon] Bolivar, of integrating Canada, the U.S., all América.

In Spanish, América refers to the entire Western Hemisphere.

That last remark is no surprise. Globalists have been pushing for an amalgamation of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico for some time. But it is notable that AMLO mentioned it in the context of immigration, and a mass invasion of Hispanic illegal aliens whom he surely knows no Republican will have the courage to deport.

That aside, he wasn’t finished with Abbott.

AMLO didn’t care for Abbott’s executive order that declared as “foreign terrorist organizations the Sinaloa Cartel, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, and any similarly situated Mexican drug cartels who may be identified in subsequent proclamations” [Executive Order GA 42 Relating to designation of Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations, Gov.Texas.gov, September 21, 2022].

Abbott also outlined what steps Texas will take to fight the cartels.

Good for him.

Next day, AMLO delivered the second anti-Abbott rant.

“They are utilizing migration for electoral ends,” AMLO said:

We have to see if he [Abbott] can make that declaration, if the federal government is not involved. But in November there are elections and they always use migration for electoral ends and that is they are taking these measures. I think that these practices no longer work, because in the United States, in Mexico, in all the world there is a greater awareness, more politicization and people do not let themselves be manipulated.

[Versión estenográfica. Conferencia de prensa del presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador del 22 de septiembre de 2022 (“Stenographic Version. Press Conference of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of September 22, 2022”), Gob.mx]

What’s he talking about? People let themselves get manipulated by politicians all the time.

Then AMLO explored demographics and how many Mexicans are in Texas in particular and the United States in general, and how they might swing an election. AMLO bluntly stated that Abbott had better shut up about immigration and stop “mistreating” illegal aliens.

If this gentleman wants to be re-elected, then he should take into account that there are many Mexicans in Texas, many Hispanics, and in all the U.S., and it doesn’t look good for them to be mistreating the migrants, in any state of the United States. …

And the gentleman [Abbott] should not forget that there are 40 million Mexicans in the United States. …

[A]nd we have said with much respect that whoever does not treat our paisanos well, I don’t think is going to get the votes of Mexicans or Hispanics.

AMLO didn’t explain, of course, how fighting the murderous drug cartels is “mistreating” anyone, but at least he was honest about what he’s trying to accomplish: the defeat of American politicians who oppose mass immigration and the Great Replacement.

Then he warned that “we are not going to … permit mistreatment,” and segued into Abbott’s shutting down border crossings for inspections. In April, Abbott “implemented an operation to check the brakes of trailers at the border,” AMLO continued:

Large queues, blocked the United States border with Mexico, causing a lot of damage to trade because, according to the political vision of some legislators in the United States or rulers, even of both parties, they think that this gives them votes.

That too amounted to “making walls, mistreating migrants, repressing them,” but “that is not going to work anymore, the mentality of people is changing in all the world.”

After all, AMLO has an “obligation … to defend our migrant paisanos.” Like his predecessors, AMLO considers U.S.-born citizens of Mexican ancestry Mexican and believes they will vote in the interests of Mexico. That’s not always true, but that’s how he sees it.

Thus do we see the result of Biden’s border policies: AMLO has more opportunity to posture about and meddle in Americans affairs, not least by defending his “paisanos,” who, regardless of citizenship, are all considered to be Mexicans.

AMLO is defending his people.

Who is defending Americans? Not Joe Biden.
