Steve Cortes: Mexican President is ‘Mocking’ America with his ‘Solution’ to Stop the Southern Border Invasion

Steve Cortes, president and founder of the League of American Workers (LAW), said Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is “mocking” America a with his proposals to address the U.S.-Mexico border crisis.  

“The Marxist President of Mexico’s solution to stop the invasion: Blackmailing America into giving $20 billion a year to countries in Latin America & the Caribbean,” Cortes said in a post on X. “And making us give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens from Mexico who are living in America. He’s mocking us.” 


A clip from 60 Minutes posted on X summarized President López Obrador’s demands to work with the United States include the U.S. giving $20 billion a year to countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, lifting sanctions on Venezuela, ending the Cuban embargo, and legalizing all “law-abiding Mexicans living in the U.S.”

When asked what would happen if the U.S. does not comply with these requirements, Lopez Obrador said “the flow of migrants will continue.” 

Cortes was a spokesman and advisor to President Donald Trump’s 2016 and 2020 campaigns. He is also a political advisor and commentator, and previously traded global currencies and interest rates for 25 years for large international hedge funds. He has been an on-air broadcaster for CNBC, Fox News, and CNN. Cortes founded LAW in 2022 to conduct research and develops proposals on public policies impacting American workers and the economy.
