Jorge Castaneda Blames U.S. for Migrant Massacre
By Jerry Kammer, September 2, 2010

"Immigration Reform or More Massacres."

That's the provocative headline of today's column in the Mexican daily Reforma by Jorge Castaneda, who as Mexico's foreign secretary from 2000 to 2003 pushed the Bush administration to pass "comprehensive immigration reform" legislation. He is now Global Distinguished Professor of Politics and Latin American and Caribbean Studies at New York University.

Castaneda believes that unless the U.S. accepts the inevitability of large-scale migration of low-wage workers, it will be at fault for more slaughter like last week's horrific massacre of 72 illegal immigrants in the border state of Tamaulipas.

You knew this was coming, lol, blame the country that these people are trying to make it to for the massacres. Do these people even think before they say things? So ... if we made it easier for impoverished South and Central Americans and Mexicans to migrate to the USA what would that change? Are we supposed to go down there and pick them up and give them personal body guards? So, if they weren't sneaking in because of the supposed unfairness of our immigration laws, how would they get in if the immigration laws allowed them? Would they fly in? Could they afford that? And if they didn't fly in, wouldn't they have to take the same route (up through South and Central America and then Mexico) which would lead to the same kidnappings and murders? Basically, what does our current immigration laws have to do with these people getting kidnapped and murdered? They're gonna have to come up through that route whether they are legal or undocumented.

They are just not realizing that it is not a RIGHT, but a privilege given by the USA to come here. How can you get mad at the people that are nice enough to give you that chance anyway?

Too many illogical folks are publicly speaking on illegal immigration.

This is total BS, not to mention, a despicable form of emotional blackmail. Now, we are responsible for the barbarism of the drug cartels? If we donít grant amnesty, we can expect more massacres? Give me a break!

Jorge Castaneda wants nothing less than completely open borders where his country's cartels can openly bring in anything type of contraband they wish. He has no objection to the cartels or the violence, he despises the USA for making it a little bit difficult for them. We're getting in the way of some of the profits - profits they want to make by poisoning the citizens of the USA with highly addictive and toxic chemicals.

We've had people here saying that 'immigrants' go bad because they are influenced by American culture..

He also despises the USA for putting a crimp in the reconquista agenda by attempting to enforce our immigration laws.

I really am starting to believe the world would be much better off if the USA just vanishes from site. We are so evil, far more evil and abusive of human rights than say Iran, China, Russia and even our good neighbor Mexico. I just don't know who will feed all these despots if we do vanish.

youre getting the picture wrong, be open minded about it.

theres very mean people everywhere, everywhere in the world the only thing that seperates the usa from the rest of the world its is purchasing power.
War On Drugs Clock

some communities ban certain amount or the location of a strip bar is not saying that having one in the community makes the community bad, it just means that it results in the gathering of people of diffrent mentality than a community of 1500 country town with more bars than schools etc.

thats what the crime here in america represents to latin america,
its getting so sophisticated that it has made those criminals in latin america professionals because the pay is good.

so instead of spending 1.3 trillions dollars helping israel since its foundation
lets stop acting like were solving the problem by jailing people to the prison system.

american politics are so corrupted, america is like giant pool, were here cleaning the dirt one swoop after the other instead of finding the source.
