There’s more than just Trump’s wall between the US and Mexico, & the deeper problems won’t go away with Biden

Mexico has passed new laws stopping US drug agents from having carte blanche to operate in their country. Will the new Washington administration agree to this new set-up, or will it ride roughshod over it?

You don’t hear a lot about it these days, but one should never forget that the Trump administration built its support around antagonism towards Mexico. His slogan: ‘Build a wall’ would ultimately define his presidency, not so much in terms of substance, but in terms of its nationalist appeal and message to insecure identities in the United States. The president pledged to crack down harshly on illegal immigration across the southern border, vilifying and stereotyping Mexicans as “drug dealers, criminals and rapists.”
