At Zero Hedge by Tyler Durden --
So what do you do if you're the Mexican Ambassador to the United States and are faced with a crisis whereby millions of your citizens have broken numerous federal laws of your host country by illegally immigrating without going through the proper channels?
Well, you simply offer up creative new ways to "game the system" to avoid deportation, like submitting an application for citizenship. While you may have zero chance of actually being granted citizenship, at least you'll "no longer [be] subject to the deportation processes." And, as an added bonus, you won't "lose Mexican citizenship" either.
Per The Hill, the ambassador has even expanded the hours of Mexican consulates in the United States to "better provide information and assistance" ahead of Trump taking office on January 20th.
"It's one of the very important protection actions to become citizens, because then they're no longer subject to deportation processes and on the other hand, they don't lose Mexican citizenship," he told Notimex.
Sada said Mexican consulates will expand their service hours to better provide information and assistance to their citizens amid concerns about how citizenship policies may change after Jan. 20.
“The best we can do is inform ourselves and be conscious about our situation, and to know that in the consulates we have personnel that is dedicated specifically to the subject of protection," he said.
