Trump warns those who want to emigrate to the US: “You don’t pay coyotes, we won’t let you in”

September 24, 2019


The American president, Donald Trump, has taken advantage of his speech before the UN General Assembly to issue a warning to all those who think of emigrating to the United States, alerting them that they will not be allowed to enter the country, while having lashed out hard against those who defend “open borders.”

“Do not pay the traffickers, do not pay the coyotes,” he has warned migrants, mainly Central Americans and Mexicans, but increasingly from other parts of the world, who reach the southern border of the United States. “If you get here, we won't let you in and we'll send you back,” he said.

In this regard, he has made it clear that while he is president of the United States “we will enforce our laws and protect our borders,” while praising the efforts made by the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, to curb the arrival of Migrants to American soil.

On the other hand, he has lashed out at activists who advocate an “open door” policy, defending that their policies are “cruel and evil” that what they do is encourage people trafficking networks.

Trump has denounced that many migrant recipient countries are being overtaken and has argued that everyone has “the right to protect their borders.” It has also encouraged all countries to join efforts to leave people traffickers out of work.
