Mexican Abuse of Migrants: The Pot Calling the Kettle Black

Note to Mexico:  Shut you stupid gob until you clean up your gross human rights abuses!

Richest Irony of the Year:  A guy who calls himself "Felipe Calderon" and claims to be "President" of a country called "Mexico" criticized US immigration policies, saying the new Arizona law "opens the door to intolerance, hate, and discrimination."

Now The Irony Part
Next comes Amnesty International, with a damning report on the cruel human rights depredations inflicted upon immigrants passing through Mexico.

Yahoo News plays it straight up:
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.
That's an understatement.  Here are some excerpts from the Amnesty report:
The Mexican authorities must act to halt the continuing abuse of migrants who are preyed on by criminal gangs while public officials turn a blind eye or even play an active part in kidnappings, rapes and murders

Migrants in Mexico are facing a major human rights crisis leaving them with virtually no access to justice, fearing reprisals and deportation if they complain of abuses

Kidnappings of migrants, mainly for ransom, reached new heights in 2009 ...  almost half of interviewed victims saying that public officials were involved in their kidnapping.

An estimated six out of 10 migrant women and girls experience sexual violence, allegedly prompting some people smugglers to demand that women receive contraceptive injections ahead of the journey, to avoid them falling pregnant as a result of rape.
I love it when reality pierces the screaming leftys' fantasy bubble.  Mexico is a horrible, dysfunctional failed state, and we are robbing their best and brightest--the ones who have the brains and the courage to leave it all behind for a better life in the US.

Lefties in the US:  STFU! You want to fight human rights abuses?  Go to Mexico, a 24/7 horror show of human rights abuses!

What does this say of Mexico?  Is it still racist if you're robbing, raping and killing your brown brothers and sisters?  Is it better that these victims suffer and die at the hands of their fellow Latinos?

What does this say of the goodness of the United States?

A little perspective is always a good thing.

... And another thing!

If the left in this country really want to fight injustice, they should march their ignorant, inflamed asses down to Mexico! And take bull horn buffoon Reverend Al Sharpton with you!

Of course, they are all too cowardly to fight real injustice. It's so much safer and satisfying fighting the made-up kind here in the comfy confines of The Greatest Nation on God's Green Earth.

Whew! That's a 5-star smackdown of a post!

Innominatus: The worst of it is that I would rejoin the military just to go down there and reclaim Mexico for the Mexicans, if we could roll up the corrupt ruling oligarchy right along with the drug gangs...

I've been to that country and I've known a lot of Mexicans. It brings me no joy to say stuff like this.

This is more an indictment of the loony leftards in this country who jump up and down and hoot noisily like a gang of baboons at anything that gives America a black eye.

Our tax money that the U.S. sends to Mexico to supposedly fight the drug war ends up in the pockets of the politicians running Mexico. Hey it's the Latin way. If the gringo can't see that now, they will never see it.

If there are human rights abuses in Mexico (and I agree there is) than it should be made easier for genuine refugee immigrants to leave to the US.

CP: Thanks for providing the easy answer! My first grader said the same thing just yesterday!

We have a bleeding sore to our south, and letting people claim refugee status helps those who can. What about the millions who cannot escape? How do you help them?

Mexico has been a corrupt pit for nearly two centuries.

No wonder Mexicans want to hightail it out.

But not on my dime and my tax support!

No, no, no CP, not leave to the US....transit the US on their way to Canada.

The Mexican government already hands out leaflets telling its citizens how to sneak across the border... we just need to hand out our own leaflets and build a nice fast train. The first transcontinental railroad ran east and west, we can build another running north and south
