Here is the latest from our friends south of the border:
There will be war in the streets, or at least there could be.
The strong armed tactics against Mexico are not making officials happy south of the border.
Now, with an executive order facilitating the deportation of illegal immigrants – and especially those who have committed criminal offenses – as well as building a wall on the border, President Trump has many Mexicans up in arms.
Jorge Castañeda Gutman, former Secretary of Foreign Affairs in Mexico, took things a step further during an interview on CNN with Fareed Zakaria when he suggested that Mexico’s previous cooperation with the U.S. in curbing the flow of drugs and illegal immigrants could end.
Instead, the cartels could be essentially unleashed upon the U.S. – retribution for tough policies on Mexico and other immigrant-producing countries in the Latin American world.
These astonishing words could open up an economic gang war against the U.S. – very irresponsible words that reveal just how connected Mexico’s leadership is with the violent drug cartels who operate from their territories.

To quote President George W. Bush - BRING 'EM ON !!!
Stopping the flow of illegal drugs should be a top priority for our government. Why are we focusing on ISIS, when they pose no direct threat to the US, while trying to keep open a border to facilitate the commission of criminal acts (e.g., smuggling and illegal immigration)?
Our entire approach, both Trump and anti-Trump, is screwed up. This will not end well.
