President-elect Donald Trump isn’t even President yet and some of his accomplishments already overshadows anything that President Obama accomplished in the past eight years.

Trump is going to build the wall along the U.S / Mexico border and insists that Mexico will end up paying for it. Mexico has said that they will not pay for it but it looks as if that is about to change.

President Enrique Peña Nieto said at the meeting with ambassadors and consuls that Mexico will invest to strengthen security and modernize the borderEl Financiero reports.

Sounds a lot like they are going to invest in the wall! At minimum, this is a step in the right direction.

Mexico has a lot to lose if border security is tightened, according to Conservative Tribune. Mexicans in the U.S. currently send home some $25 billion in remittances each year. Stopping the flow of cash would prove devastating to the Mexican economy, and Peña Nieto said he would work to “maintain the free flow of remittances,” according to Malaysia’s Sun Daily.

At his New York news conference yesterday, Trump doubled down on his pledge to build the wall sooner rather than later and to keep American jobs from heading to Mexico. While he was speaking, the value of the Mexican peso plunged to a new record low vs. the U.S. dollar, according to CNBC.

Peña Nieto warned that “at no time will we accept anything that goes against our dignity as a country, and our dignity as Mexicans,” Australia’s reported.

Shari Savage at CT has more:

Losing trade deals and $25 billion a year sounds fairly undignified. Mexico has some tough decisions to make. No doubt Trump will accept their eventual capitulation with grace and, yes, dignity.

Between remittances, guns and drug money, Mexico benefits handsomely from lax borders. If the border situation weren’t so profitable, they’d have been more cooperative while they had the chance.

Clearly, Mexico realizes that Trump has leverage on many fronts. They may be realizing that paying for the wall might be the least expensive way to go for them.
