Archdiocese of Mexico calls firms expressing interest in Trump’s wall “traitors”

Source: ABC News

“In a withering editorial published on Sunday, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Mexico said that Mexican firms interested in helping build President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall are ‘traitors to the homeland.’ … After repeatedly claiming that Mexico would pay for the wall, President Trump requested $2.6 billion to start the initial planning and construction in his 2018 budget request. Congress is expected to take up the proposed budget before the end of the fiscal year in September. The editorial, published in the Archdiocese’s weekly publication Desde la fe, lambasted the wall as ‘an open threat that violates relations and peace.'” (03/27/17)
