Mexico is enraged at Arizona for passing what amounts to as a nothing piece of legislation, and decides to boycott Arizona. However, Mexico is cited for the systematic human rights abuse of migrant workers from other countries including hundreds or thousands of beating, rapes of murders. Then Mexico admits the charges are true.
Let me spell it out: Mexico turns a blind eye to the steady stream of migrants from Central America toward the U.S. Mexico does nothing to protect these people - and in fact seems to be supporting their abuse, or at minimum turning the other blind eye. This is because...
MEXICO WANTS CENTRAL AMERICAN MIGRANTS TO HAVE UNFETTERED PASSAGE INTO THE UNITED STATES SO THEY ARE NOT MEXICO'S PROBLEM. MEXICO IS PISSED AT ARIZONA BECAUSE AB1070 MESSES WITH THAT PLAN. MEXICO'S WHINING HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PERCEIVED ABUSE OR RACIAL BIAS - MEXICO IS SELFISHLY LOOKING AFTER MEXICO'S INTERESTS AND DOESN'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT IMMIGRANTS ALREADY IN THE UNITED STATES.
There! I got my arms around it after all. If you must, see the below article via ASSimilated Press, which again wrongly states that AB 1070 "criminalizes undocumented migrants". These idiots just don't want to say "ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS" ...
Amnesty International called the abuse of migrants in Mexico a major human rights crisis Wednesday, and accused some officials of turning a blind eye or even participating in the kidnapping, rape and murder of migrants.
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.
The Interior Department acknowledged in a statement that the mainly Central American migrants who pass through Mexico on their way to the United States suffer abuses, but attributed the problem to criminal gangs branching out into kidnapping and extortion of migrants.
Rupert Knox, Amnesty's Mexico researcher, said in the report that the failure by authorities to tackle abuses against migrants has made their trip through Mexico one of the most dangerous in the world.
"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," Knox said.
Central American migrants are frequently pulled off trains, kidnapped en masse, held at gang hideouts and forced to call relatives in the U.S. to pay off the kidnappers. Such kidnappings affect thousands of migrants each year in Mexico, the report says.
Many are beaten, raped or killed in the process.
