The Mexican government has reluctantly accepted the Trump Triumph, but it has stepped up its meddling with a direct appeal to the “Mexican community”—MexGovSpeak for all Mexicans and Mexican-Americans in the U.S.—to further Mexican interests. Needless to say, this has gone virtually unreported in the U.S. Main Stream Media.
The Mexican foreign ministry ( Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores, or SRE) has just released a video message for illegal alien Mexicans in the U.S. delivered by the energetic Foreign Minister Claudia Ruiz Massieu. She spoke forcefully and maternally, utilizing the familiar tú address, reassuring the illegals that the government of Mexico is with them. Here’s my translation and comments:
Foreign Minister’s Video Message to the Mexican Community in the U.S.Read more >>
P aisano [ Literally “Fellow countryman”, used frequently in Mexico to refer to Mexican illegal aliens in the U.S.].
These are uncertain times. Be calm. Don’t fall into provocations. Don’t be deceived. The government of President Pena and all Mexicans, estamos contigo [“ we are with you”].
We want to inform you of the possible migratory actions or about your belongings, which as of February can affect you. [ Confusing sentence, presumably the “your belongings” part is about illegal aliens protecting their possessions in case of deportation.] We are going to bring you this information and serve you wherever you are.
Also , you can go to the consulate or call us.
We are going to be closer than ever, to inform you, accompany you and to defend you. In these times the most important thing is to be united.
You are not alone.
Estamos contigo. Mensaje a la comunidad de #MéxicoEnEUA SRE video, Nov. 30, 2016
