The Mexican government, increasingly plagued by illegal immigration from south of its border, is in the process of forming its own border patrol, Breitbart and a San Antonio radio station report. U.S. Rep Henry Cuellar (D-Tex.) is helping the Mexican government in the hope that their border patrol with reduce the flow of OTMs – Other Than Mexicans – into the United States.

Mexico’s illegal aliens are mostly from Central and South America, although the country has also become a staging area for Chinese, Indians and others who hope to someday enter the U.S. These aliens make up large percentages of those illegally closing our border today.

WOAI 1200 San Antonio reports that,"Now that Mexico's birth rate has stabilized, and it's economy is improving, Mexico more and more finds itself victimized by illegal immigrants." The station says the Mexican government is considering employing a border patrol on both borders. Those agents stationed at the northern border could be used to stem the flow of illegal aliens and drugs headed for the U.S.

Cuellar told WOAI he is allegedly assisting the Mexican government. He said, "A lot of people coming in are not Mexicans, they are from Central America and South America. On Mexico's border with Guatemala it is like a UN in many ways…If we coordinate with them, I think we will do a much better job of securing our common border so drugs and undocumented immigrants don't pass into the United States."

Cuellar is reportedly interested in having the U.S. fund part of the the Mexican border patrol. But Zack Taylor, Chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, told Breitbart that the U.S. should first worry about securing its own border. "Mexico's southern border is Mexico's problem," Taylor said. "We should not be telling other countries what they should do when we ourselves are not willing to do it. Let's lead by example, please."

The United States had best listen to Zack Taylor rather than Cuellar! But, lead by example, it is questionable that the US government can set a good example about border patrol or security.

Excellent advice. Take B.O and HOLDER and run with it.

I am a 4th Generation American whose Family decided to come to Ametica over 100 years ago.
Their decision does not negate the legal system already in place and neither should the persons crossing our borders now in mase.
We need to collectively not allow their ability to vote be granted to Democrats and watch the border magically close.
Reagan gave 4 million a free ride, now the numbers are well over 20 million.

OMG! The guy wants the U. S. to fund Mexico's border patrol! MEXICO IS THE 10TH RICHEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. Why can't our government understand that?

It's not as if it is the politicians own money they want to give away, it is just Citizen taxpayers' money and we know that taxpayer resources are never ending.

And my question still is, WTH does America know about secure borders?

It was inferred that we could expect secure borders 28 years ago. How the hell long does good border policing plan take? There is no doubt about it, we need 587 new leaders in Washington.

With some breaches to be expected in war, we did a pretty good job securing Iraq borders. But not in America, even some of the pols claim it cannot be done. 537 new faces with elected authority are needed very badly in Washington, D.C.

Amen, we have 34,000 troops in Korea attempting to secure their borders not to mention the Billions we spend there. We could utilize that number of people and Billions in the U.S. to defend our national Borders.

We just need a better proportion of Conservatives and Liberals. However, he that hath the authority to enforce laws to protect our Border needs some strong opposition for his lack of doing so! Pronto! We need more who are willing to do the job required.

A secure border is meaningless if we don't enforce in the interior. 40% of our illegals are vise overstayers, they came legally, but refused to leave. PLEASE do not fall for the border security cover story, it is a distraction. The real problem is illegal employers. The government refuses to act against illegal employers, how can WE act against them without getting thrown in jail?

NATIONWIDE MANDATORY e-VERIFY will work.

This will remove the 'magnet' of money that draws Illegals. They will stop coming here, start going home, and the problem will shrink. Whenever/wherever we have done this, unemployment drops and Illegals leave.

Next, it would make sense to speed up the deportations of the ones the police now capture committing other crimes, estimated to be 700k/year, making the size of the problem smaller.

Border security and visa exit/entry can come later.

An Inconvenient Truth: the fastest way to RAISE WAGES and REDUCE UNEMPLOYMENT is to CUT WAY BACK ON IMMIGRATION, ESPECIALLY ILLEGALS.

The economy and labor market will BOOM once these policies are fully in place. There are no jobs for Illegals. They are trying to take our US citizens' jobs away.

Australia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, UK and other countries are already doing this, and they are all doing well.

I absolutely agree that E-verify IS a great tool, but it is obvious that Congress is only pushing amnesty, so we will not get this congress to make e-verify a federal law. It will have to be the states, one at a time. Getting all 50 to pass it...??

Some legislatures only meet every two years, and some states even have imited time for their session, (Another great idea for congress, 90 day sessios).

I often ride the Express bus in downtown Houston from a park and ride. While waiting in the rain for the bus, I visited with a homeless disabled African American vet that the Houston VA Hospital had released (pushed out on a waiting list for housing with no place to go) who had some issues. However, he could work and wanted to work. He had worked 30 years for the Air Force and had hit hard times. He was not crazy. He was sitting in the bus shelter for shelter from the rain. The bus came and the driver could not speak a word of English (Spanish) and could not answer anyone's questions in English and spoke Spanish in response. He listened for the ding on the money machine to see if everyone put in the right amount of money and he knew his route and he could speak to the Spanish speaking riders. I do not know if this bus driver was legal or not. He could not speak English much to the frustration of the majority of the passengers (of all races). While he was not a Metro Employee (he was a subcontractor employee from a subcontractor that takes some of the Metro bus routes at a lower pay than the Metro bus drivers. This was a job that the Air Force homeless vet could clearly do in my opinion. The situation is only getting worse and Americans are losing.

This is what you get in Houston and in most Texas cities (Sanctuary Cities). Subcontractors give the C of C or any ILLEGAL EMPLOYER an excuse; we didn't know someone else hired them. A couple of years ago an anti Sanctuary Cities bill passed in both the Texas senate and house but never was placed into law because of some sort of "redtape" thanks to Lt. Governor Dewhurst and and House leader Strauss both GOPers.

We must not forget that Houston is a sanctuary city. And subcontracting is a way to maintain "we did not hire them", Ruses to conceal immorality and disrespect for citizens has been nearly fine tunes to an art form.

Coming back on this Mexican border patrol, we have to watch that closely. I suspect possibly just another ruse to provide more foreign aid to Mexico. I even have mixed feelings about whether I see it as a positive step. Mexico cannot even maintain an honest police force, who are going to be Border patrolmen, drug cartel members, maybe? Pretty darned scary.

They're probably forming a border patrol to help more Mexicans over the fence!

The Mexican government wants to stop illegal migration into its homeland, but spends millions of pesos annually to maintain consulates in the US, the primary purpose of which is to assist illegal Mexican migrants in the US to evade US immigration law. Perhaps they should consider closing these unnecessary consulates and using the money to fund their new border patrol.

Amazing Henry will advocate for Mexico to have a border patrol, but he doesn't advocate for our border patrol. I wonder what type of kick back he will recieve.

Welcome to the club, Mexico. How does it feel to be invaded? We can tell you since you've sent your people for us to take care of for decades. What would you do if we sent all your citizens back home and closed the border? We'd celebrate!

As long as we pay illegals to come here ( food stamps, subsidized housing, free medical at our emergency rooms , free public education, while Americans have to pay tuition if they live 1 mile out of their preferred district. They live 1000 miles out of the district yet it is free for them . Quit giving them perks that are paid for by the tax payer, and we are tired of it. Get the illegal freeloaders off all public assistant , secure our border. To be here they are supposed to have a individual or group to host them and pay for their up keep , Not Me , The American taxpayer.

One way we could cut down on illegal immigration would be one politicians would have no problem with is through the raising of taxes. Tax any money being sent by western union to Mexico at 80%. Billions go south every year according to government figures that income is second only to Mexico's oil exports. This would also cut into the flow of drug money going to the cartels.

Let me see if I understand this taken from the article;

"San Antonio radio station report. U.S. Rep Henry Cuellar (D-Tex.) is helping the Mexican government in the hope that their border patrol with reduce the flow of OTMs – Other Than Mexicans – into the United States."

From what I read is, its okay for illegals from mexico to come into the USA to break our laws, but nobody else???????????

What a funny, ugly, joke!

Help them with their border? We can't even help ourselves. Which is Another joke.

Should I be excited about this?  Sure, Mexico would benefit from keeping drugs from entering from their southern border, but would their BP attempt to prevent their people from entering this country illegally?  So the U.S. wants to help?  Why? Mexico has the 14th richest economy in the world.  And let's never forget that countries don't have friends, they have interests.  A Mexican BP doesn't knock my socks off.

Pls ask Henry to ask his counterparts in Mexico how they treat OTMs crossing north into Mexico. Are they jailed? Fed@watered? Clothed? Given a bed&blankets? Given medical&dental care? And treated well upon retrying to enter?
I doubt Mexico grants citizenship to babies born in Mexico let alone to siblings, aunts&uncles & cousins!
