My favorite, Political hypocrisy, Mexico building a wall at their southern border to keep migrants from crossing into Mexico and ultimately the United States. The US is coy about its role in Mexico’s crackdown but is sending $75m in equipment and training to help stop Central Americans from crossing illegally into Mexico. Amazing how two countries can cooperate in one instance of border control but not another.
The UN estimates 400,000 Central Americans cross illegally into Mexico each year and as many as half of those are fleeing violence. The majority are quickly deported back to dangerous homes.Unlike in the US, Mexico has broadened asylum laws to recognize that fleeing violence of the kind practiced by the street gangs of Honduras and El Salvador can classify someone as a refugee. But the odds are still stacked against asylum seekers: Mexico deported a record 175,000 Central Americans last year, up 68 per cent from the previous year and nearly two-and-a-half times the number deported by the US.
This is laughable and only shows you what goes on in the back rooms filled with cigar smoke. We need not here the word racist any longer when it comes to security at the U.S. border with Mexico. Mexico is as much concerned about their sovereignty as the United States. Just remember this at the polls and remember don’t believe everything you are fed by the media. More than not , it is half truths designed to manipulate you and your vote. What do you think?
