     Only liberals care what Mexico's Senate does. Mexico’s Senate issued a stern rebuke to U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday, urging its government to end cooperation with the United States on migration and security over Trump’s plans to deploy the National Guard along their shared border. In a motion which passed the Senate floor unanimously, the lawmakers also condemned Trump’s aggressive rhetoric toward Mexico, describing the president’s decision this week to send troops to the border as “one more insult.”

     “(Trump’s) conduct has been permanently and systematically, not only disrespectful, but insulting, based on prejudices and misinformation and making frequent use of threats and blackmail,” Laura Rojas, the head of the Senate’s foreign relations committee, said in support of the motion.  The Trump administration is working with four southwestern U.S. states to deploy the Guard troops, who will not be involved in law enforcement, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has said. The Mexican Senate’s resolution is non-binding and unlikely to trigger policy changes. After the motion passed, the Mexican foreign ministry issued a statement saying it would maintain close contact with the U.S. Homeland Security Department about its plans for the border.

     Mexico would be better solving some of their own criminal and financial problems.  The US is important because they need the money that is sent back by illegals.
