Mexican officials blame rising crime on US for deporting illegals.

We are a selfish nation and treating our neighbor to the south horribly. It’s our fault that border violence is up.

From Fox News:

A coalition of Mexican mayors has asked the United States to stop deporting illegal immigrants who have been convicted of serious crimes in the U.S. to Mexican border cities, saying the deportations are contributing to Mexican border violence.

Ciudad Juarez Mayor Jose Reyes blamed U.S. deportation policy for contributing to his city’s violence, saying that of the 80,000 people deported to Juarez in the past three years, 28,000 had U.S. criminal records — including 7,000 convicted rapists and 2,000 convicted murderers.

Wait a second. This can’t be true. Everyone knows that all the illegal aliens in America are law abiding people (except for that coming into the country illegally part) who just want to do the jobs Americans won’t do. Hey, don’t we have American rapists and murderers to do these “jobs”? Maybe these guys will do it for less.

More from the article:

Reyes and the other Mexican mayors said that when the U.S. deports criminals back to Mexico, it should fly them to their hometowns, not just bus them to the border.

I agree, and we should send them first class! Haven’t they suffered enough already through their incarceration and deportation from America without being forced to ride coach? In fact, let’s go one step further and fly them to the city of their choice to find new victims a fresh start.

Sure we give Mexico money every year for the drug wars, their military, medicine, farm aid, border security, and direct monetary payments to their government, but we aren’t doing enough to fly their violent criminals home.

This is rich. These Mexican criminals came to America illegally. They committed violent crimes. They were convicted and served their sentences in American prisons at U.S. taxpayer expense. They were bussed to Mexico and given to Mexican immigration officials and representatives of the Mexican attorney general. The Mexican government could have returned these people to their hometowns. Yet, the Mexican border mayors say it’s ourfault that many of them committed new crimes in their towns and they expect the American taxpayer to pick up the tab for plane rides all over their country.

Sure. We’ll get right on that.

Uh, oh. It looks like we have agreed to this nonsense in at least one city:

“Earlier this year, ICE suspended the removal of Mexican nationals with criminal records to Ciudad Juarez,” ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice said. “…In addition to dedicating unprecedented manpower, technology and infrastructure resources to the border, ICE has also collaborated with Mexico to adapt its removal procedures in response to safety considerations.”

How many times have you heard from our politicians and media what a “great partner” Mexico is in fighting border crime? Yet, they won’t even take responsibility for transporting their own violent criminals away from the border? Nice.
