A couple of points:
I’m not in the business of making specific forecasts, but let me offer a general concern: There are currently 418 million people in South America, and the U.N. says there will be 510 million by midcentury. What are the odds that at some point something will go wrong in Latin America that interested parties in the U.S. will try to define as justifying our own Camp of the Saints? Last year, the Obama administration tried to pass off Central American gang violence as justification for letting in unaccompanied youths. Next year, it could be an earthquake, hurricane, civil strife, recession, inflation, sexism, homophobia, or transgender insensitivity.
I respond, here, and also there as a comment:
Interesting you say that.
Remember Jade Helm 15? A lot of people were worried about it, in terms of us being the victims of it.
When thinking of these things, there’s only a very small sliver of sources I can trust, sources that are squeezed in between my favorite tinfoil sources and the mendacious mainstream media, both sides embellish the truth, to say the least, to fit some sort of agenda. But in between lie my trusted sources, and on Jade Helm 15, they all point to Latin America. In that the Pentagon is worried about some major instability, riots, etc. breaking out in Latin America, and that we’ll have to go down there with the military and squash it.
I’d like to think that doing so would preclude another Camp of the Saints at our southern border, but it would probably do just the opposite, exacerbate it.
Also this curious nugget:
Much of the Mexican ruling class, for instance, is vulnerable to being denied visas to visit the luxury homes they’ve corruptly acquired in Texas, Florida, and New York. Trump Tower, for instance, is likely home to Mexican elites who could be pressured into cooperating with American border protection the way Egypt and Jordan cooperate with Israel.
President Trump versus Mexican elites who own apartments in Trump Tower. Guess who would hold the whip in that relationship. Even economically, Trump loses nothing because if for some odd strange bizarre reason, Mexican elites start having “problems” with American immigration authorities in being able to access their Trump Tower apartment, and they have to sell it, someone will easily snatch it up; the waiting list for people who want to buy at Trump Tower is probably longer than my…er…uh….arm.
