So, you know, what's interesting who you're is that I got here to Mexico City a couple of days ago because we are reporting for let the USA we're doing a story about the reality of people who have been deported and what's happening to their lives here. And when I stopped people on the street to say in Spanish kid. Yes. In the ninety s you the other Gary recital? They would immediately say, well, you know, they're decent people. And I know that they're just looking for work. And I know that they don't really plan on staying here. And I would be like, oh, you think I'm asking you about the migrant caravan asking you about people who have been deported or compromise dates back and for them. It was like a they conflicted the two things the truth is is that Mexico right now is dealing with the reality that there are about seven thousand seven thousand five hundred people who have come from on Dudas searching for refuge in the United States. Of course, Trump is saying all kinds of insane crazy wacky probably tweeting something right now that he's just don't pay attention anymore. He's just an American president who's insane. Sadly, especially on the immigration being in Mexico. Oh, the future foreign minister of Mexico, but he said that these people have to be stopped, but unless Monroe locus over on the other hand the future president is saying possible work visas, so it's a little bit strange. There's also been a kind of nationalism coming up in Mexico and at the same time a lot of beautiful effort protests where I attended a protest a small gathering in front of the American embassy of just yesterday. Right. And then the the history of Latin thrown as people that like give charitable work. That that are trying to help migrants with the journey. That's also happening and there have been beautiful images of Mexican people making food for migrants, you just making sure that they're okay. So you've been working on these immigration issues for years in the context of right now with the caravan or just in general under the Trump administration. And may he go and changing to new president? What's the pulse here in Mexico right now actally lake this caravan is just like the reflects of reality what happened every day? So we see even more because of the carbon and because of Trump and all these condo. But the reality we are at transit country. We also export migrants..
