Target: President-Elect Donald Trump
Goal: Take preventive measures against Trump’s anti-Mexico campaign.
Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 elections has Mexico fearing the collapse of its economy and relationship with the United States. One of the main hooks of Trump’s campaign was to build a wall between the two countries, leading to the loss of trade between them and the deportation of many Mexican citizens from the United States. Mexico is America’s third-most prominent trade partner and relations between the countries have been quite stable for a long time; All of this will be destroyed in one fell swoop if Trump goes through with his plans.
We cannot allow this to happen. Donald Trump may not be in the White House yet, but his designs on separating Mexico from America are not only bigoted and cruel, but one of the worst possible economic decisions that could be made in this day and age. We must not waste a second in doing everything we can to protect the relationship between Mexico and the United States.
Sign this petition to take early preventive measures against Donald Trump’s desire to force Mexico out of America.
Dear President-Elect Trump,
Your desire to shut Mexico off from the United States, if you still intend to act upon it, is not only cruel, but an extremely poor economic move. Mexico is one of the United States’s most prominent trading partners, and severing relations between the countries would be financially devastating to the economies of both Mexico and the United States. Furthermore, the implication that you will forcibly deport Mexicans is cruel and unnecessary.
Do not build this wall, if you still intend to do so. Do not do something that will potentially force Mexican immigrants to leave the country. The United States was founded on immigration, and many Mexicans have found comfortable homes and lives in this country. Do not take that away from them, and do not destroy trade relations between the United States and Mexico.
