Lawmakers Just Passed a Proposal to Ban Donald Trump from Entering Mexico

(ANTIMEDIA) Mexico City — Legislators in Mexico City passed a proposal on Thursday to bar presidential candidate Donald Trump from entering the country.

Though the proposal amounts to a tellingly symbolic gesture, the lawmakers hope the measure will pressure Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to take a more adamant stand against Trump’s xenophobic rhetoric — including his blanket characterization of Mexican immigrants as ‘rapists and criminals.’

“What we’re saying is that if he wants to build a wall so that Mexicans can’t enter his country, then he is not welcome in our country,” Manuel Delgadillo explained to WorldPost.“What we need now is for President Peña Nieto to make a strong statement condemning Mr. Trump’s anti-Mexican comments.”

Delgadillo also said the Mexico City legislators were concerned with the billionaire’s “hyper-nationalist” dialogue, which has stoked anti-Mexican sentiment throughout the United States.

Deputy Víctor Hugo Romo of the Revolutionary Democratic Party — the politically left political party responsible for the proposal — compared Trump to Hitler, calling him “primeval, egocentric, and primitive.”

“Hitler was very popular,” Romo said, reported MSV Noticias. “He generated a lot of sympathy by adopting nationalist politics that vindicated the Germans’ sense of self-worth. [Trump] is practically a copy. I consider Donald Trump a chauvinist, a misogynist who fosters and leans toward repression … He doesn’t respect diversity.”

Trump’s demagoguery has also been recently condemned by two of Mexico’s former presidents.

Felipe Calderón denigrated Trump’s anti-immigrant policy for its transparency in not being aimed at immigration, per se, instead saying “he is talking about migrants that have a different color than him — and that is frankly racist.” He sharply cautioned that Trump “is turning the United States into a neighbor that we’re all going to end up rejecting and hating.”

In interviews, Vicente Fox called Trump “crazy” and a “false prophet.” He also repeatedly stated, referring to the candidate’s proposal that Mexico must fund the building of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, “I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall … He should pay [for] it … He’s got the money.”

He added that “Democracy cannot pick crazy people” who don’t “know what’s going on in the world.”

However, the remarkably tabloid-esque field of presidential hopefuls for the 2016 election would appear to evidence exactly that.

  1. Ok so this should be some simple math… so Mexican government politicians are accusing someone of:

    1. Xenophobic rhetoric… (really mexico?)

    2. Hyper-Nationalist dialogue….. (really mexico?)

    3. Primeval, Egocentric and Primitive… (wow… just… wow)

    4. A chauvinist, a misogynist who fosters and leans toward repression … He doesn’t respect diversity. (mexico… lol… really?)

    5. Felipe Calderon and Vicente Fox? lol

    6. “is turning the United States into a neighbor that we’re all going to end up rejecting and hating.”

    7. False prophet?

    These politicians in Mexico should take a little vacation from their bubble and actually go visit their own country with a printout of this story and compare the reality of it and what they see… with everything they mentioned in this laughable joke of a report.

    It really seems as if they've never been in Mexico themselves.

    Felipe Calderon and Vicente Fox, just like all the parasites before them, are completely corrupt frauds that looted the Mexican people's treasury, and bent over time and time again to the globalist banksters that feed their addiction.

    They have been complicit in murders which are innumerable, literally. They have "ruled" and "governed" their people and turned blind eye after blind eye as their own people are dumped in 50 gallon drums of acid, and "cooked up" into the "pozole de muerte" (stew of death) and beheaded all over the country inside of the completely out of control drug and gun trade with the United States that is so massively profitable for them and so immorally, viciously deadly and costly to the both the people of Mexico and the United States…

    Journalists are murdered and disappeared by the hundreds.
    Police are corrupted or killed.
    Army divisions and top leaders are corrupted or murdered.
    Politicians are on the take by default and have been for over a hundred years.
    Anyone and everyone they see fit to silence is murdered.

    Most of the common people of mexico have been absolutely domesticated into a pure economic peasant slavery existence. They devalue their currency all the time and take on endless amounts of debt to keep the gravy train going for their elite and the misery going for the masses because it helps to make it easier to control…

    …and of course the most desperate get involved in the drug trade or head north for a the hope of a better life… one the government of Mexico failed to create or support for them.

    These parasites are the last ones on the planet that should be complaining about xenophobia, mysoginism, racism, corruption, "being a fraud" or "false prophet."

    They in fact have been those things to their own people since the inception of their failing state.

    Fix your own failing state before looking up this way to pontificate, you corrupt pack of lying globalists. You've sold your people out forever and now want to speak of this?

    Pathetic.

  2. You're right about those parasites being hyporitical by complaining about those things while endorsing them in their country, I agree with you. But what they stated in those interviews is the common opinion of the mexican people. Only in the US a complete lunatic like Trump can get so many followers and supporters…

  3. Parasite.:
    derogatory
    a person who habitually relies on or exploits others and gives nothing in return.
    See the Mexican people have been cought in the worst war (drugs). And I wouldn't blame the Mexican people. I think is more like the big bang, is all just a serie of circumstances that led to this war. Yes indeed corruption runs deep in most governmental levels.but actually the country is doing pretty good given the fact they are fighting this fkn war within.the People is now fighting corruption,poorly political representation and drug cartels. The whole country is shifting,evolving therefore is chaos.
    Now you giving a very harsh opinion on some bullshit you probably read on a Facebook page.
    How dare you to give for a fact information from a highly untrustworthy source.you are just cheap talking about something you don't know from first hand.
    And honestly if you think about it the definition given on top. Suits perfect roughly 80% of the population in the country you living in. And of course you're included in this %tge.

  4. Ernesto Aragón Well, not exactly. Not only in the U.S. can a lunatic like Trump can get so many supporters. Sadly, in Mexico in spite of favoring a small group of national and international billionaries, selling our natural resources to foreigners, rising poverty rates, catering and accomadating drug cartel leaders (such as "El Chapo), the Mexican president and his political, parasite party has many MANY followers and supporters. P.S. this government does not represent all mexican people, not everybody voted for this president.

  5. Where are YOU getting your info, from Televisa or TVAzteca? the whole country is NOT shifting, it´s NOT evolving due to the assasination of innocent people. ANYONE and EVERYONE who tries to speak up publicly (mostly jounalists) against this parasitic corrupt goverment has dissapeared or has been murdered by the government itself. Government officials deliver anyone that´s against it, to the drug cartel and they get rid of these people that want to inform the public of what really is going on in this country.

  11. The wall will only keep ILLEGALs out. Anyone entering the US legally is welcome. Mexico should be enforcing their side of the border. They should pay for at least half the wall like any good neighbour.
    Hillary's promises mean nothing. She's been in a power position for years and did none of these things that she's promising.
