With an executive order facilitating the deportation of illegal immigrants, President Trump has many Mexicans up in arms.
In an interview with CNN, Jorge Castañeda Gutman told reporters that Mexico’s previous cooperation with the U.S. in curbing the flow of drugs and illegal immigrants could end, while at the same time proving to viewers just how connected Mexico’s leadership is with the violent drug cartels who operate from their side of the border.

VIA| Jorge Castañeda Gutman, former Secretary of Foreign Affairs in Mexico, took things a step further during an interview on CNN with Fareed Zakaria when he suggested that Mexico’s previous cooperation with the U.S. in curbing the flow of drugs and illegal immigrants could end.
Mexico has a lot of negotiating chips in this matter, Fareed, but it also has measures we could take in other areas. For example, the drugs that come through Mexico from South America, or the drugs that are produced here in Mexico all go to the United States. This is not our problem. We have been cooperating with the United States for many years on these issues because they’ve asked us to and because we have a friendly, trustful relationship. If that relationship disappears, the reasons for cooperation also disappear.
The implications are astoundingly clear – Mexico would consider exporting chaos and violence into the United States as a form of payback for immigration restrictions and controls against the instability that the southern border has brought to the country for decades.
