Trump Is Right
Mexico "sends" illegals north

The Mexican government produced this border-crossing guide book.

Donald Trump: 'The Mexican government... they send the bad ones over'
  In the first Republican primary debate of the 2016 presidential race, billionaire developer Donald Trump --- the leader in recent polls --- made a splash.
    Early in the debate, Fox News' Chris Wallace, one of the moderators, pressed Trump on some of his past statements about undocumented immigration -- the signature issue of Trump's campaign. [...]
   Is the Mexican government sending people across the border, rather than individuals making decisions on their own to leave in search of seek employment or to join family members in the United States? When we talked to a range of immigration experts, we found wide agreement that that there is no evidence to support Trump's claim.

   Chris Wallace asked Trump "what evidence do you have, specific evidence that the Mexican government is sending criminals across the border? Thirty seconds."
    He said "Border Patrol, I was at the border last week. Border Patrol, people that I deal with, that I talk to, they say this is what's happening.“
    This was a very weak answer. He could have said he has seen evidence that proves that the Mexican government encourages illegal aliens to cross the border.
    They even give these criminals special ID cards.
    And their border czar said if the Border Patrol stops them, try again.
    When it comes to the border there is much he could use to defend himself --- and America --- if he chooses to do so.
    We are all in debt to Donald Trump for bringing the issue of illegal immigration to the front burner, however by failing to do his homework he runs the risk of looking like the boy crying wolf --- putting the issue at risk for all of us.
