Apparently, success in Mexico is defined strictly by who you do work for and has little to do with how well you do it. It would also seem that the Mexican government shares the same liberal attitudes as some of America’s leftist politicians. Millions have fled Mexico under the guise of building better lives and financial security and this story may certainly explain why.
Mexicans who help build U.S. President Donald Trump’s planned border wall would be acting immorally and should be deemed traitors, the Catholic Archdiocese of Mexico said on Sunday, turning up the heat on a simmering dispute over the project.
