Mexico City (Reuters) — Saying his country can no longer condone sending citizens to an “agujero de mierda” like California, the socialist president of Mexico today announced that he will rescue all his citizens from the failed state by 2030.
“California already has half of America’s homeless population,” said President Andrés Manuel López Obrador. “In good conscience, my administration can no longer condemn Mexican citizens to such an agujero de mierda, so we’re leaving. For you gringos, that means California is a ‘shit hole.'”
The announcement comes just as California Gov. Gavin Newsom pledged $750 million for the state’s homeless in fiscal year 2020-21, bringing the total budget allocation to more than $1.4 billion.
“Homelessness is a national crisis, one that’s spreading across the West Coast and cities across the country,” Newsom said. “The state of California is treating it as a real emergency — because it is one.”
U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) called homelessness an “all-hands-on-deck crisis.”
López Obrador noted that a succession of politicians have failed to fix the problem. “If that cabrón Newsom won’t take responsibility for his people, how can I trust him with mine?” the president said.
