Illegal Immigrants Really Are Abused — In Mexico
While moonbats shriek about the atrocity of expecting Mexican criminals to prove they’re in the country legally, here‘s how illegal aliens are treated south of the border:
MEXICO CITY — Amnesty International called the abuse of migrants in Mexico a major human rights crisis Wednesday, and accused some officials of turning a blind eye or even participating in the kidnapping, rape and murder of migrants.
Too bad for the media this never happens in the USA. The New York Times would have its front page covered for the next year and half.
The group’s report comes at a sensitive time for Mexico, which is protesting the passage of a law in Arizona that criminalizes undocumented migrants. …
Rupert Knox, Amnesty’s Mexico researcher, said in the report that the failure by authorities to tackle abuses against migrants has made their trip through Mexico one of the most dangerous in the world.
The illegal immigrants are just passing through Mexico, on the way from Central America. Once they get to the US, they’re home free, thanks to the de facto amnesty that Arizona has made quislings so angry by partially repealing.
Central American migrants are frequently pulled off trains, kidnapped en masse, held at gang hideouts and forced to call relatives in the U.S. to pay off the kidnappers. Such kidnappings affect thousands of migrants each year in Mexico, the report says.
Many are beaten, raped or killed in the process.
But they don’t complain to the authorities, because…
At present, Article 67 of Mexico’s Population Law says, “Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal … are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues.”
If only we could import Mexico’s immigration laws, instead of importing its criminal class, maybe these people would stay home until they could immigrate legally.
