Mexicos incoming president on Tuesday thanked U.S. President Donald Trump for his respectful attitude toward the next Mexican administration and held out hope for joint progress on tackling illegal migration ahead of a major meeting this week.
Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is due to meet on Friday with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Trumps son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and others for talks in Mexico City.
The meeting will be the first major face-to-face discussions between Lopez Obrador and his team and U.S. officials since the leftist won a landslide victory on July 1....

He’s a raving leftist, but maybe he’ll at least be more honest and upfront than Mexico’s prior presidents. Here’s hoping. The country is a complete mess and it doesn’t have to be.
AMLO said that the fact that Mexico has to send its poor people to the United States is a disgrace. I cannot argue with that.
but he won’t do anything to stop it.
Yes, it’s true. The saner Mexican politicians, few that they are, actually lament the fact that so many Mexicans go to the US to work. They feel that they are losing their best and most hard-working, which is true. But until they build a functioning economy, young people are going to keep on leaving.
Many people don’t realize that Mexico is already technically a socialist state. Therefore, everybody’s highest goal is government employment, and that is why there is so much corruption and so much economic stagnation. It’s also the reason that even their major cities don’t have potable water...and that the constant teachers’ union strikes result in some of the fewest days of schooling anywhere and that criminal mafias run the towns.
It’s no wonder people can’t wait to leave, and I hope AMLO is serious about giving them a reason to stay.
Build the wall, take 30% of the money sent by western union, NO MORE ANCHOR BABIES.
Yeah but this Leftist cabron is telling his people to break into the US en masse and live here because he say’s it’s their ‘’human right to do so’’.
I trust this pendejo less than Rocket Man.
