Trump Wins Again, Migrants Choosing To Stay In Mexico

Many of the Central Americans who lined up for papers at an asylum office in southern Mexico said they could abandon plans to reach the United States and remain in Mexico if U.S. President Donald Trump clamps down further on migration.

Mexico is ramping up security on its southern border with Guatemala as part of an agreement with Washington after Trump threatened to impose punitive tariffs on Mexican goods if the government did not stem the flow of migrants reaching the United States.

Under pressure from Washington, Mexico also agreed to expand a program started in January that forces migrants to wait in Mexico for the outcome of their U.S. asylum claims. The United States began increasing the pace of returns of asylum seekers to Mexico on Thursday.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

Title of the article is a bit deceiving.  It's not the people would rather be in Mexico than the U.S, it's that they'd rather stay in Mexico to wait for asylum instead of going back to Guatemala. Hopefully, Mexico will soon declare that they are a safe country and that should somewhat curb those seeking asylum in the U.S.

How long will it be though before Mexico gets just as fed up with those seeking asylum in their country, especially when they realize the tremendous expense, both economically and on their country.
Romans 12:16-21
Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceable with all.  Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.  No, if your enemies are hungry, feed them, if they are thirsty, give them something to drink...Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
