Archdiocese of Mexico calls firms expressing interest in Trump's wall 'traitors'


In an editorial, the archdiocese said that companies should not supply materials or work to build the wall proposed by U.S. president Donald Trump when their own government is against building it. But the Archdiocese´s editorial accused the government of responding "tepidly" to those expressing interest in the project.

Mexico's economy minister has urged local companies not to participate in the construction of a proposed wall along the US-Mexico border.

An internal report prepared for Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly estimated that a wall along the entire border would cost about $21 billion, according to the Associated Press.

Rogelio Zambrano, chairman of Mexico's largest cement maker, Cemex, made headlines earlier this month when he said the company would consider providing estimates to supply cement to companies that participate in the project.

"Any company intending to invest in the wall of the fanatic Trump would be immoral, but above all, its shareholders and owners should be considered traitors to the homeland", stated the Desde la fe. The U-turn was seen as a response to mounting public and political pressure within Mexico, according to Quartz.

With the recent detention of hundreds of Mexican immigrants, it looks like U.S. officials are beginning to implement Trump's campaign to expel illegal immigrants. Using Mexican firms and labour would reduce costs would be directly antithetical to Trump's promise to bring business and jobs back to the United States from overseas.

"Joining a project that is a serious affront to dignity, is to shoot yourself in the foot", the Archdiocese editorial reads. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has said his country will not pay for "any" wall on the USA border and said he rejects Trump's decision to go ahead with the plan.

"What is most surprising is the lukewarmness of the Mexican government's economic authorities, which have not shown any firmness against these entrepreneurs".
