Mexico "Getting House in Order" By Cracking Down on Border Security

Good news. While the Mexican government accuses Americans who want a wall, illegal alien criminals to be deported from U.S. cities and increased security along the southern border of being scared bigots, they're cracking down on Americans and other foreigners walking in an out of their country. From AP (bolding is mine): 

 Walking into Mexico at the nation's busiest border crossing with the United States is no longer an uninterrupted stroll for foreigners.
Pedestrians and motorists have generally entered Mexico unencumbered along the 1,954-mile border with the United States.
Now, pedestrians going to Tijuana from San Diego at the San Ysidro crossing must choose between a line for Mexicans who walk through unchecked, and a line for foreigners who must show a passport, fill out a form and - if staying more than a week - pay 322 pesos, or roughly $20, for a six-month permit.
Travelers have long followed similar protocol at Mexican airports, but the procedure marks a big change at land crossings that weren't designed to question everyone and fully enforce that nation's laws.
"This is about putting our house in order," said Rodulfo Figueroa, Mexico's top immigration official in Baja California which includes Tijuana.

"This is about getting our house in order." Imagine that.

Meanwhile, Democrats on Capitol Hill continue to refuse condemnation of sanctuary cities in the United States, which evade federal immigration law by openly housing violent criminal aliens, many of whom are from Mexico.

It was just last month when Mexican national Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, who had been deported five times, shot and killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle in San Francisco.
