How Donald Trump May Already Be Forcing Mexico to Pay For the Wall

Donald Trump’s promise to build a wall is already having huge economic ramifications. For Mexico. Seriously:

Mexico is struggling to stem the flow of Central American migrants traveling to the United States ahead of the U.S. presidential election, causing major concern in Washington, which is weighing sending more agents to help.

In 2014, Mexico moved to strengthen its southern border when a surge in child migrants from Central America sparked a political crisis in the United States.

Last year, Mexico detained over 190,000 migrants, more than double the number in 2012.

But official data examined by Reuters shows that fewer migrants have been captured in Mexico this year even as the number caught on the U.S. border has soared.

The slowdown in detentions on Mexican soil is frustrating U.S. officials who feel that Mexico could be doing more, according to a source familiar with internal briefings on the topic at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Illegal immigration is stoking a fierce debate ahead of the U.S. election on Nov. 8 with Republican candidate Donald Trump vowing to deport millions of people and build a wall along the Mexican border if elected president.

Essentially, Trump’s promise to build a wall and end illegal immigration has caused a rush for the border that is crippling Mexico’s resources. Mexico can either let undocumented migrants enter their country willy nilly en route to the US, or they can take strong action to stem the tide of immigration for their own benefit. Which would be best accomplished by building a wall, either literally, or through a strict enforcement policy. 

All of a sudden, Trump’s absurd claim that Mexico would pay for the wall doesn’t sound so absurd.
