Mexico: Trump Sounds Similar to My Threat Assessment from 5 Years Ago

Mexico is a national security threat to the United States even as American leaders refuse to acknowledge this. However, all that could change if Donald Trump wins the 2016 presidential race, with some of his recent words sounding similar to a column I wrote five years ago at Breitbart.

I asked, “Why Not Go to War with Mexico Instead of Libya?” in April of 2011, noting that the Libyans hadn’t attacked us even as Mexico had long been waging a war on the U.S.

The Department of Homeland Security estimates that 11 million illegal aliens live in the U.S. I’m guessing that many of these illegal aliens came here by way of the Mexican-U.S. border. This amounts to an invasion and occupation of our nation. And that’s a bad thing. Correct? Or are invasions and occupations of nations only wrong when the U.S. does them? 
The boiling point for me came in May 2010 when Mexican President Felipe Calderón denounced Arizona for having the audacity to attempt to protect its people. This was tantamount to saying that we have no right to govern our own nation; no right to stop his invasion and colonization. The Democratically dominated Congress applauded this.

No one paid attention to what I wrote in 2011. But the invasion, occupation, and conquering of the U.S. has since become a major issue for Americans. And Donald Trump has helped bring this war to the front of American politics. Therefore, it is no surprise that he recently spoke of treating the criminal elements of Mexico like an enemy armed force.

“We need to treat the drug cartels as though they are an enemy army,” Trump said when asked how we need to handle the cartels in response an explosive new report from Breitbart Texas managing director Brandon Darby and Breitbart Texas reporter Idelfonso Ortiz. 
“An enemy army,” Trump reiterated. “That’s how we ought to treat them.”

Clearly Trump didn’t echo what I wrote in 2011 but it is a lot closer to it than any top politician has ever come.

Perhaps America really will wake up to the national security threat that Mexico is and start to adjust its policy to deal with that threat.
