Mexico was supposed to “build the wall.” But it looks like we’re building oil refineries in Mexico.
One interesting note is how things have generally gone pretty well on the Mexico front since AMLO (Mexico’s new leftist president) has come on the scene. $10 billion in American investment probably keeps some folks happy south of the border.
Part of a $10 billion investment in aid and loans pledged by the United States for Mexico and Central America could go to Mexican infrastructure projects including a new oil refinery, a senior Mexican official said on Thursday.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Wednesday that the funding, which he discussed with White House senior adviser Jared Kushner this week, would seek to mitigate the causes of migration in Central America and Mexico by generating more jobs.
