Senators from Mexico have demanded from their President Enrique Peña Nieto to stop Mexico’s cooperation with the United States on several issues after Trump went on attacking spree against Mexico.
This was done by a non-binding statement that was made unanimously on Wednesday. According to the statement, the government should stop all the join efforts “in the fight against transnational organized crime” until Trump exhibits “civility and respect that the people of Mexico deserve.”
This statement is a result of Trumps for his “baseless and offensive comments about Mexico and Mexicans.”
It also calls for the U.S. Congress to demand that Trump treat their country with respect and should oppose the move of deploying the National Guard to country’s southern border.
Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday to deploy the National Guard troops to the U.S. southern border, to stop the immigrants from getting by illegal means.
This newer direction will enable the National Guard troops to assist U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents who perform their duty at the southern frontier.
This initiative comes after Trump announced a that he will be taking “strong action today” to increase immigration enforcement.
“Our Border Laws are very weak while those of Mexico & Canada are very strong,” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. “Congress must change these Obama era, and other, laws NOW! The Democrats stand in our way – they want people to pour into our country unchecked….CRIME! We will be taking strong action today.”
The president over the weekend also accused Mexico of doing “very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S.”
“They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flow, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!” he tweeted over the weekend.
