January 30, 2017 SnyderTalk: Mexico’s Double Standards

“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says Yahweh Sabaoth. (Zechariah 4: 6)



Mexico’s Double Standards

A recent Washington Post article titled “Mexican president cancels visit to Washington as tensions with Trump administration intensify” explains that tensions between the U.S. and Mexico are rising due to President Trump’s plan to build a security fence on our southern border.  According to the Post,

Earlier, [Mexican President] Peña Nieto said in a  tweet: “This morning we have informed the White House that I will not attend the work meeting scheduled for next Tuesday with @POTUS.”

Peña Nieto had sent out a recorded message on Wednesday night saying that he “regrets and disapproves” of the U.S. decision to move forward with the wall, but that he still planned to come to Washington next Tuesday to meet with Trump because of the importance of the negotiations.

But that decision changed after a Thursday morning  tweet from Trump saying that if Mexico is not willing to pay for the wall, “then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting.”

Let’s take a look at a few facts.  In his book Mexico’s Glass House, Michael Waller makes some interesting points.  Property rights for foreigners in Mexico are routinely denied.  So are equal employment rights.  In Mexico, by law immigrants can never be treated fairly. Even if they become citizens of Mexico, their citizenship can be revoked without due process.

In other words, Mexico demands treatment for Mexicans who enter the U.S. illegally that she doesn’t provide for legal immigrants to Mexico.  Double standards are hard to hide in today’s world.

Below are a couple of interesting articles about Mexico:

President Trump has said repeatedly that the U.S. is being treated unfairly by Mexico.  He’s right.  It’s not disrespectful to say so.

Islamist terrorists entering the U.S. through Mexico

The fact that Islamist terrorists are entering the U.S. from Mexico along with other illegal immigrants is well-known but not well-understood.  Problemo Numero Uno: they had to enter Mexico first and then travel through Mexico to get to the U.S.  That smacks of lax enforcement in Mexico at the very least.  Given the kickback problem in Mexico, it’s likely that Islamists pay their way through Mexico.  We can’t afford to have an open border with Mexico under these conditions.

Mexican drug cartels operating inside the U.S. as though the border with Mexico doesn’t exist

Mexican drug cartels are operating openly in a number of U.S. cities.  They are like business enterprises except that they are not law-abiding and they don’t pay taxes.  Cracking down on them must begin in Mexico, but thus far, the Mexican government hasn’t been willing to do what is necessary to solve the problem.  See the articles below:

  2. These maps show how Mexican cartels dominate the US drug market

The U.S. is not without fault where drug cartels are concerned.  If there were not large markets in the U.S. for their products, the cartels wouldn’t be here. The fact that our government hasn’t been willing to deal with our drug use/abuse problem has opened the door for cartels to set up shop in the U.S.  The solution to the problem must address the supply and demand sides of the issue.



“If My people who are called by My Name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7: 14)

Change that Yahweh calls “good” begins in the hearts of believers—people who are recognizable because they are different.

We are different because we belong to Him and are called by His Name.  We are Yahweh’s people, His followers.

“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me. Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” (John 17: 22-24)
