Migrants are treated roughly -- in Mexico
TULTITLAN, Mexico -- Considered felons by the government, these migrants fear detention, rape and robbery. Police and soldiers hunt them down at railroads, bus stations and fleabag hotels. Sometimes they are deported; more often officers simply take their money.
Mexico Tells Immigrants: “No Way, José”
Each year hundreds of thousands of optimistic South and Central Americans travel north to see whether things might be less crappy for them in the United States. The problem is they have to cross Mexico to get there. And Mexico is riddled with inhospitable local authorities and migrants who are as eager as they are possessive of the American passage. Both groups treat Southern transients the same way US authorities treat illegal Mexican aliens: like human refuse.
72 dead migrants found in Mexico tip of iceberg
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador -- Paula Cruz wept quietly at the foreign ministry office in El Salvador's capital after reporting that her son was missing - apparently kidnapped - in Mexico.
A porous border to a drug-torn and gang filled country is never a good thing, even though innocent citizens there wish to understandably leave it.
