    MEXICO CITY -- A missing Mexican priest was found shot dead off the side of a highway in western Mexico days after he was kidnapped from his parish residence, state prosecutors said Sunday. He was the third Roman Catholic priest to be slain in Mexico in the last week. The Michoacan state Attorney General’s Office said in a statement that the Rev. Jose Alfredo Lopez Guillen’s body was found Saturday night in an area called Las Guayabas on the highway between Puruandiro and Zinaparo. Lopez was kidnapped last Monday, the same day authorities in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz...

    Tens of thousands of people marched through Mexico City on Saturday in opposition to President Enrique Peña Nieto’s push to legalize same-sex marriage. Organizers of the National Front for the Family estimated at least 215,000 people participated, and while that number could not be immediately confirmed, it was clearly one of the largest protest marches in Mexico in recent years. Dressed mainly in white and carrying white balloons, the marchers held banners warning against same-sex marriage and demanding parents’ right to control sex education in schools. …

    EDINBURG, Texas — Teams of gunmen have been running rampant in various communities near the Texas border, storming into homes demanding drugs or robbing victims at gunpoint. In one night, a team of hooded gunmen carrying rifles stormed at least three homes, assaulting the victims inside while demanding cash or drugs. Just one day later, a team of gunmen shot a robbery victim and led authorities in a high speed chase and managed to flee. Information provided to Breitbart Texas by the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office revealed that the attacks began on Sunday late night and continued onto early Monday...

    The Mexican Air Force has quietly retired its tiny fleet of just eight Northrop F-5E and two F-5F Tiger IIs. These aircraft represented Mexico’s entire fighter force and there seems to be no replacement in the works for them at this point in time. Mexico purchased 12 Tiger IIs from Northrop in 1982 via a US Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program dubbed Peace Aztec. Before the deal was inked, Mexico experienced a turbulent decade trying to purchase a new light fighter. After the US rejected an initial sale of F-5E/Fs to to the country in the early 1970s, the US...

    Mexican cartel smugglers converted a van to house a cannon used for shooting large drug bundles over the border fence between the Mexican State of Sonora and Arizona. Information provided to Breitbart Texas by Mexico’s Federal police revealed that the van-turned-cannon was discovered near the fence between Agua Prieta, Sonora, and Douglas, Arizona. The truck was discovered with the doors open and no license plates. Mexican authorities were able to use the truck’s VIN to learn that the vehicle had been reported stolen in July from Hermosillo, Sonora.

The announcement was hardly news as Ford has been talking about the shift for more than a year. But in the throes of an election that has both candidates decrying companies that send jobs to low-wage countries, the decision was an invitation for attention. The next day, during a...

    Economists have long said that when the United States catches a cold, Mexico gets pneumonia. But analysts said Monday that Hillary Clinton’s pneumonia has given Mexico’s peso something worse. The Mexican currency reached the psychological barrier of 20 pesos per dollar, and analysts and commentators cited the role of the U.S. presidential campaign. Banamex, one of Mexico’s largest banks, listed the peso at 19.96, and other banks and exchange houses listed it even higher. A Banco Base analysis said the strength of Republican candidate Donald Trump influenced the peso’s decline. …

    Ford Motor Co. is the classic example of an all-American company, but now they are better representing what ails the American economy, as they are being forced overseas. As Ford begins plans to build a $1.6 billion auto assembly plant in Mexico for small car production, the company continues to experience the pressure of globalization crushing their American business dreams. Ford was a classic Michigan company, but as Detroit News reported Michael Martinez reports, "It will employ 2,800 at the new Mexican plant by 2020." It is no surprise Ford has to modify their building model in order to compete,...

From Conservative Tribune: One of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s talking points in his campaign has that he wants to protect our borders.

Mexican officialss are talking about building a great wall on its southern border with Central America. The Daily Mail reported: It seems Mexico agrees with Donald Trump’s plans to build a wall to keep out illegal immigrants – but only on its southern border with Central America. Mexicans are calling for the border wall to keep out Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans fleeing violence in their own countries.

Ford CEO Mark Fields confirmed the long-expected move Wednesday during an event for investors and Wall Street analysts. Ford currently makes its Fiesta subcompact in Mexico, but its Focus and C-Max small cars are made in suburban Detroit. Making them in Mexico would boost company profits because of low wages there.

"We will have migrated all of our small-car production to Mexico and out of the United States," over the next two to three years, Fields told Wall Street analysts at an investor conference hosted by the automaker. Earlier this year, Ford said it would invest $1.6 billion in Mexico for small-car production to start in 2018. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has criticized Ford for moving U.S. jobs to Mexico. Fields has...

Donald Trump’s surprise visit to Mexico, where he met the Mexican president and discussed the many contentious issues between our two countries, reminds me of President Reagan’s important trip to Geneva in 1985. Reagan was more than willing to sit down with the Communist leader in an effort to build a personal connection between the two men without sacrificing America’s vital interests in the Cold War. The 1985 Geneva summit was highly advertised as a potential showdown between Reagan and Gorbachev, the...

"In cases where the property/assets of [our] fellow citizens or companies are affected by a foreign government, as Donald Trump has threatened, the Mexican government should proportionally expropriate assets and properties of foreigners from that...

Trump should remind those who alternately accuse him of a racist immigration stance and then flip-flopping when he softens it that border security could be achieved simply by adapting Mexico’s policies. In 2014, Breitbart News reported that Mexico deported more illegal aliens than did the United States as part of its strict control of its borders: From January to December, Mexico deported 107,199 Central Americans immigrants by land, while the U.S. only deported 104,688 illegal...

    Here’s what Mr. Trump offered in a plan for fighting illegal immigration: • Build the wall. • End the catch and release policy for undocumented immigrants and instead return them to their country of origin. • Have zero tolerance for undocumented immigrants who have committed a crime, and deport them. • Triple the number of deportation officers at the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. • Repeal President Obama’s executive orders that temporarily protected undocumented immigrants from deportation and authorized them to receive work permit • Stop issuing visas to any country where “adequate screening cannot occur” that might endanger...

    Like Bulgarian and Ukrainian Olympic judges back in Soviet Union days who gave American ice skaters a crummy score after a strong performance, on today’s Morning Joe Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough totally trashed Donald Trump on his visit with the Mexican president. For not raising the issue of who would pay for the wall, Scarborough screamed “he choked! I can’t stand people that choke under pressure!” Brzezinski was reluctant to discuss the trip at all, dismissing Trump as a “fringe, alt-right Republican candidate . . . let’s not pretend this is some sort of foreign policy discussion. This is...

    About five minutes into Donald Trump’s big immigration speech on Wednesday night, two things were clear: The glad-handing, diplomatic Trump had stayed in Mexico, and not a damn thing had changed about his immigration plan. [Snip] The speech immediately drew sharp criticism from Hillary Clinton backers. But here’s the funny thing about 2016: Many of the proposals Trump advocated have had support from Clinton herself. Part of the reason is—like most conservative immigration hawks—Trump focused on enforcing existing immigration laws rather than passing new legislation. And the laws that Trump wants enforced are, in some cases, laws Clinton has backed.

    Donald Trump took his plan for a border wall to the doorstep of Mexico’s president Wednesday — only to be told there’s no way Mexico would pay for it. “At the beginning of the conversation with Donald Trump, I made it clear that Mexico will not pay for the wall,” President Enrique Peña Nieto tweeted soon after a private meeting and joint press conference with Trump. But later Wednesday, the GOP nominee doubled down on his promise to make Mexico pay during his long-awaited speech on immigration, in which he showed no signs of softening his positions as some had...

    Watching NBC news on the coverage of Trump's trip to Mexico. So they focused on the Mexican President's comment that he told Trump he would not pay for the wall, and they ended the coverage saying, (words to this effect) "but that differs from what Donald Trump said today". So I looked up what Trump said today; Did I miss something? Here's what he said:“We did discus the wall. We didn’t discuss payment of the wall"

    A prominent Mexican TV news anchor is blasting Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto for inviting Donald Trump to Mexico City. Jorge Ramos, anchor for Univision and Fusion, criticized Peña Nieto for not holding Trump accountable for some of his previous rhetoric on illegal immigration and Mexican-Americans. Instead, during a joint press conference in Mexico Wednesday, Peña affirmed that the two men would work together to end illegal immigration if Trump is elected president. "What a poor, lukewarm and fearful response by [Nieto] before Trump," Ramos tweeted in Spanish Wednesday. Where is the indignation to Trump's insults?" "Trump leaves Mexico without...

    A fearless American went to Mexico and unapologetically nailed his position on the relationship between the U.S. and Mexico. How good were the remarks?  Well, lets just say… we can fully anticipate the liberal U.S. media to go into combat mode; because candidate Donald J Trump articulated a full-throated, unapologetic and yet resoundingly ‘diplomatic’ America-First message to Mexican President Peña Neito….….and that’s what he did publicly. When Donald Trump and President Neito came to their collective podiums Trump was in hostile territory.  Neito speaking Spanish without a formal translator provided, and without presenting his remarks in advance to candidate Donald...
