Whatever one thinks of the immigration issue, it’s about to be fundamentally transformed. On Sunday, Mexicans will likely elect as president Adrés Manuel Lopez Obrador, a radical leftist politician universally known by his initials, AMLO.
AMLO’s socialist economic program and anti-American agenda seem certain to turn a basically friendly nation – albeit a drug- and violence-ridden one that enables large numbers of illegal aliens to transit our southern border – into a failed state like Venezuela, right on the other side of the Rio Grande.
AMLO reportedly will also urge Mexicans to engage in mass migration to the United States. Whether just a goal or the predictable result of his disastrous economic and security policies, we are on notice: Lots more illegal aliens are likely headed our way.
We need a wall to prevent that from happening, and we need it now.
