Mexico’s president said Sunday that there is “no way” his country would ever pay for a wall between it and the United States. Peña Nieto stressed that economic and social prosperity on both sides of the border relies on a firm relationship between Mexico and the United States.

  • “No Way” his country would ever pay for a wall between Mexico & the United States, Enrique Peña said to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria
  • Trump stated in June of 2015 “When Mexico sends it people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people”
  • “I cannot agree with such a generalization for Mexicans,” Peña said.”There is no way to agree with comments like these which describe all Mexicans in such a way”
  • “Not many people know, for instance, that every single day, 1 million people cross the border between Mexico and the U.S. and they do it legally — every single day — one million people cross the border from the U.S. into Mexico and from Mexico into the U.S.,” the President said
  • According to the President, more than 370,000 trucks and cars cross the borders
  • “I believe that any of the candidates, Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Trump, I’m sure that both of them would like to build good conditions and better wellness for their people,” he said. “We are very respectful to whomever is elected. We want to build a positive and constructive relation among Mexico and to whomever becomes president of the United States”
  • However, he did not comment on the illegal immigration issue & the wall would not interfere with commerce, unless the commerce is illegal activity
