Mexican presidential candidate, Lopes Obrador, held a rally in Los Angeles and the media is silent?

The presidential candidate of a foreign nation campaigns on American soil and dumps all over America and American values and the media is silent. Why isn't this a big deal as it should be? Why in hell is he campaigning for president of Mexico on American soil? That's the elephant in the room. When you're campaigning for an office you naturally go where the voters are and Obrador went to Los Angeles. This reinforces many of President Trumps talking points about illegal immigration to include that millions of illegals cast votes in the election, and that there are way more illegals in America than what is usually estimated. That's why the media refused to cover this. This rally supports the narrative on the right. I wonder if Jorge Ramos attended?

Technically he has millions of his constituents in Los Angeles and surrounding counties. These constituents will soon be returning to the homeland.

That will probably vote absentee. They want an anti American guy heading Mexico. I’ve had a lot of Hispanic and Mexican friends in my life so I hate to say this, but most Mexicans are either stupid or evil.

Yes...why didn’t Trump say something about it as well?

Too busy fighting off rabid attacks from insane Leftists who agree with Obrador that the Southwest belongs to Mexico.

Imagine it’s 1960. Would ANYONE have allowed this to happen?

I was born and raised in Arizona and you can be sure it would not have happened then.

From your mouth to Border Patrol's and ICE's ears.

I suggest an invited Cinco De Mayo celebration for all the no-show Immigration Cases.

Didn’t Obama campaign in Berlin before he became the temporary resident of 1600 Penna. Ave.?

This is not totally unlike the old unofficial requirement that candidates for the Dem primary for Mayor of NYC had to visit Rome, Tel Aviv, and Dublin sometime during the campaign.

Most Mexicans believe El Norte is their country.

"Remember The Alamo!"

Back when Guatemala (or some other South American “paradise”) held elections a few years back, they had voting centers set up all across Fairfax County, Virginia; I believe the Virginian government assisted in setting them up and operating them, but I could be wrong. The fact that the Federal government allows this just goes to show how out of control our country really is.

Most Mexicans, legal or illegal have dual citizenship. That’s too big a voting block for him not to campaign here.

“Didn’t Obama campaign in Berlin before he became the temporary resident of 1600 Penna. Ave.?”

Granted it was during a campaign but he was not in Germany to pander to millions of illegal Americans. He invited himself to Germany while trying to summon the spirit of JFK and to cast himself in some sort of divine light of Camelot.

So Russian meddling that benefits the Republicans is the end of the world.
But Mexican meddling that benefits the Dims in A-OK.

Got it.

Yeah, but while campaigning in Berlin Obama didn’t trash talk about Germany. While campaigning in Germany Obama restricted himself to trash talking about America.

“Most Mexicans, legal or illegal have dual citizenship. That’s too big a voting block for him not to campaign here.”

If they are ILLEGAL they do not have US citizenship. And most Mexicans who are legal US citizens do not have duel citizenship if they are over 18 (I believe that’s the correct age). You need to double check your source. There are likely quite a few legal aliens who are in the US who vote in Mexico.

You totally missed the point. You should read what I wrote and refrain from skimming the headline.

I had not heard of this. It’s possible they may have set up polling stations in their embassies and/or consulates or maybe had drop off points for previously mailed ballots, but if there were actual polling stations outside of those areas mentioned that would be highly suspect.

I am ok with, in theory, a foreign candidate coming here to campaign to their own citizens. But I am not ok with what it will likely turn out to be in this case, a foreign candidate bashing America, promising to change America, on American soil in order to get votes.

They had polling places in schools. I think the local counties assisted with that, I don't think it was a state-run thing.

It may have been El Salvador. I can't remember, it's been a few years.

My bad, I meant Mexicans in America, legal or illegal can vote from here, legals have dual citizenship.

Some “legals” do have duel citizenship, however that is a small percentage. Once a duel citizenship holder is 18 (I think) they must choose one country to be a citizen of.
