Comments claim these are different plants servicing South America. The one they've cancelled is still cancelled...

I am an engineer for Ford, this is a BS story and MISLEADING at best. These are NOT the same factory Ford talked about transferring production BACK to the US, those expansions are IN THE WORKS, like the one in Flat Rock Michigan. These are PARTS Suppliers as they STATED last NOV these plants provide mostly to South America were COST is everything.

this is FAKE NEWS, these plants are NOT the Auto plants Ford talked about last fall, these are just PARTS plants.

Ford South America

Ford lost over $1 billion in South America in 2016, but the company says things are finally looking up.

FWIW it's the gatewaypundit. They're loaded with fake news. Another one they had was claiming that the Reddit network guy who worked for Clinton was leaking/revealing internal secret network IPs. They based it on some logs he gave with 192.168.x.y addresses. For those who know nothing about networks (including the gatewaypundit), those are special reserved IPs for repeated internal use that have absolutely no meaning outside of this. In other words it's literally the exact same thing as me saying "arbitrary address 1, arbitrary address 2, arbitrary address 3, ..." where what you and I saying would refer to completely different things.

Even worse is that there's a handful of guys that link all their clickbait and then confirmation bias kicks in and these fake stories get voted to the top making Voat look absurd.

Because then no one in Mexico can afford to buy them. If they are selling products TO the local population I got 0 problems with that country wanting manufacturing jobs in THEIR country. That's precisely what the U.S. is calling for.

Lets make sure they make good on earlier promise first.

Bad faith to print false accusations against firm that is promising to provide new American jobs.
