    Martin, let it go. Go back to writing about how CC can’t decide on an arena location. If America and its CEO have become that distasteful to you, go back to Mexico. Except, if you did that, we would lose a good American who just happens to be a Mexican 😀

    I wouldn’t describe your attitude as simple as a “you hate Donald Trump” outlook. It’s more of a defensiveness, if you will. Perhaps I would describe it as a “complex” of sorts.

    I still say that Mexicans would be better served by putting more demands on their own government than on the US. That would be true of people from all parts of the world. As my father asked, “Crees que nos quizimos cruzar? Era por necesidad que cruzamos?!” That is to say, most people would rather not leave the comforts of home. It is out of need that people leave their homeland.

    Citizens of the world, demand more from your OWN government. Empower yourselves!

    I would like to see the US create policy that would help create stability for ourselves AND our neighbors so they too can experience prosperity at home. Blaming each other won’t help anyone. Let’s work towards improving our respective governments so that we can ALL have success at home.

    Feel free to call this the “Vegas Doctrine”.

    Martin
    You hate Trump because he want to shut down one of the bigger capital generators for Mexico that being the despicable practice and misery generating import and export of illegal immigrants.

    Yeah, Martin. Yesterday City Council started discussing plans for a monorail system so that students from Juarez wouldn’t have to walk two blocks to the trolley to UTEP. Give Trump a rest for awhile and focus on the insanity of El Paso politics.

    The Mexican constitution states that foreigners may be expelled for any reason and without due process. According to Article 33, “the Federal Executive shall have the exclusive power to compel any foreigner whose remaining he may deem inexpedient to abandon the national territory immediately and without the necessity of previous legal action.”

    Laura Carlsen, director of the Americas Program at the Center for International Policy, said the plight of Central Americans fleeing violence back home “has revealed a deep vein of hypocrisy among Mexican politicians, who rightfully criticize the U.S. for its treatment of Mexican migrants as criminals and then do the same to migrants in this country.”

    “Human rights violations, rape, murder and extortion of migrants in Mexico is rampant and authorities turn a blind eye or actively participate in it,” Carlsen said.

    The National Institute of Migration, the Mexican agency that deals with Central American migrants, did not respond to requests for comment.

    Rios, who runs the food kitchen, said most Central Americans who arrive in Mexico complain about mistreatment by police and state authorities. “There is a sentiment spread against them in this country, that they are a threat to society, that they are thieves,” he said. “There is no sympathy for many of them who flee deadly violence amid poverty in their countries.”

    Amy and Esther Juárez were edgy with excitement as they boarded the bus full of seasonal workers heading for a farm at the other end of Mexico from their home in the poverty-stricken southern state of Chiapas.

    Although their brother Alberto,18, had made the same journey the previous year, it was the first time Amy, 24, and Esther, 15, had left the tiny indigenous community where they had grown up.

    But about half-way there, immigration agents boarded the bus, and after checking all the passengers’ papers, ordered the three siblings to get off.

    The officials accused them of carrying false documents and lying about their nationality. Then they told the youngsters that they would be deported to Guatemala, a country none would have been able to place on a map.

    The baffled youngsters – who speak the Mayan language Tzeltal but very little Spanish – were transferred to an immigration holding centre in Queretero city.

    Alberto, 18, was taken into a separate room by four agents who told him that unless he signed documents admitting he was Guatemalan, would die there.

    “One pushed me, another was kicking my leg, and a third who was very fat gave me an electric shock here, on the back of my right hand,” Alberto told the Guardian through a translator.

    “I really thought I was going to die, so I signed lots of sheets of paper – but I can’t read or write so I didn’t know what I was signing.”

    The three siblings were held for eight days before a lawyer from an activist group filed a legal complaint and eventually secured their release.

    Carolina Jiménez, deputy director of research for the Americas at Amnesty International, said: “We have documented a truly disturbing pattern of very serious human rights violations against migrants travelling through Mexico. But seeing immigration officials involved in torture against Mexican nationals to make them ‘confess’ they are migrants takes this disturbing situation to a whole more sinister level.”

    Concern over the conduct of immigration agents is rising. Advocacy groups were dismayed when Ardelio Vargas, a highly controversial police figure, was named head of INM in January 2013. Vargas was in charge of federal forces when peasant protests in the town of San Salvador Atenco were violently repressed by police in 2006.

    As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton suggested that Mexico was hypocritical in criticizing the State of Arizona for cracking down on illegal immigration when Mexico does the same thing.

    Her May 20, 2010 email to one of her State Department aides said Mexico’s treatment of the undocumented was “Another example of ‘you should take the log from your own eye before criticizing the speck in your neighbor’s.'”

    Clinton sent that email on the same day that then-Mexican President Felipe Calderon addressed a joint session of the U.S. Congress, criticizing Arizona’s strict new immigration law.
