The feud between the United States and Mexico continues to escalate since Joe Biden took office.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has sent a diplomatic note asking the U.S. to suspend funding for an anti-corruption group critical of the Mexican government.
Obrador alleged that the U.S. is financially supporting a group called Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity, a group of “coup plotters” that he claims are trying to undermine and overthrow the government.
“It’s interference, it’s interventionism, it’s promoting coup plotters,” said Obrador.
He was describing funding that includes money from the U.S. Agency for International Development, commonly known as USAID, as an affront to Mexico’s sovereignty.
“That’s why we’re asking that (the U.S. government) clarifies this for us. A foreign government can’t provide money to political groups.”
U.S. News reported:
Governments worldwide from India to Cuba have bristled against the funding of organizations they feel to be politically motivated by international foundations or the U.S. government.
In the one-page diplomatic note, reviewed by Reuters, the Mexican foreign ministry said it supported the “essential” work of civil society organizations and the corruption fight but said MCCI was a political actor.
The ministry asked the United States to consider suspending the funding.
Lopez Obrador won a landslide election victory nearly three years ago largely on a promise to root out rampant corruption.
After Lopez Obrador threatened to send the diplomatic note on Thursday, the group posted on Twitter that its work was completely legal.
Biden’s border crisis continues to get worse by the day.
A new report reveals that the administration is apprehending nearly 6,000 illegal immigrants a day at the U.S.-Mexico border.
And that number doesn’t even include the illegal aliens who are getting into the country through fraudulent and other sneaky ways.
The continued influx of people at the border reveals an ongoing struggle for the administration that has rushed to increase capacity for the thousands of migrant families, children, and adults crossing into the US each week.
Throughout April, Customs and Border Protection has encountered an average of just under 6,000 people daily at the southern border, according to a Department of Homeland Security official, which is in line with the March average of around 5,560 people daily.
During the first three weeks of April, around 122,000 people were encountered by US border authorities on the southwest border, another signal that the month will likely be similar to March, according to preliminary data obtained by CNN.
Texas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton had sued Biden’s administration for allegedly releasing Covid-infected illegal aliens into the United States.
Last month it was reported that the Biden Administration was releasing Covid positive illegal aliens into the US interior.
While there’s an increase in Covid-infected illegal aliens coming into America, Biden has substantially decreased the number of illegal aliens they are arresting.
According to Breitbart, Immigration and Customs Enforcement have carried out 75% fewer “priority” arrests, and arrests the Biden administration deems “non-priority” have been cut by over 80% compared to the same time frame in 2020.
Last week, it was revealed that the Biden administration is directing Border Patrol agents to dramatically decrease using DNA tests on apprehended migrants at the border, which was used by the Trump administration to identify “fake families.”
Border officials are now administering fewer rapid DNA tests among migrant families amid as the border crisis is raging under Biden.
