Trump Wants to Use U.S. Military to Protect American Emigrants

We rarely use the word "emigrate" in the U.S., because we do not think of Americans wanting to move away from the U.S. and we are right about that, because it is rare.

Some "families from Utah" decided that they would rather live in Mexico.  I can guess why.  They say that in Mexico if you do not have enough freedom, you can always buy a little more.  They chose to be Mexicans and I do not criticize them for that.

They were murdered by drug gangs, and Trump wants to send troops to Mexico to fight the gangs. 

We have plenty of gangs here, making huge profits from crime thanks to our laws against drugs.  They kill more people in American cities every day than those unfortunate families.

In this particular case though, we need the wall as now those gangs regularly cross the border into the United States

Build a wall or outright open the border.  This pretending the border is closed but watching people stream in because gives us the worst of all possibilities.

Since the subject are Mexican gangs, I don't see what this has to do with that it is our problem and frankly our right to confront them since they are in Mexico and Mexico isn't doing it

I can't really disagree with that.

As they are mostly funded by smuggling drugs and people into the US, it is our fault, in part at least.    Legalize drugs and rationalize immigration and there wouldn't be a narco state on the border.

I'm pretty sure you know that I agree with that.  I don't think though it changes that Mexico not protecting us from gangs based in their territory still gives us a right to take care of them ourselves.

I sure don't support drug legalization to support drug dealers.  I say if we get the chance, fire missiles and kill them
