Now Mexico wants to build a border wall with Central America to keep out illegal immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala
- Mexicans are calling for the border wall to keep out Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans fleeing violence
- They complain ‘hordes’ of immigrants are flooding the country on the way to the US – who then deport them back to Mexico
- Mexican newspaper El Mañana published article: ‘Yes to the Border Wall … but in Mexico’s South’
- ‘Trump’s idea of a border wall is a good one but it should be on the southern border with Central America,’ the El Mañana board wrote
While Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has mocked Trump’s plans, many Mexicans praised the concept of a border wall.
‘Trump’s idea of a border wall is a good one but it should be on the southern border with Central America in order to stop the flow of Central Americans from entering both countries,’ the El Mañana board wrote in July.
The paper also called for proper immigration checkpoints on the southern border.
El Mañana even criticized Hillary Clinton for failing to raise the issue of border security.
