This is where logic goes out the window.

Mexico is not a third world country. Its a developing country. It has all the equipment necessary to detect humans hiding in vehicles. Check the article again.

Mexico is not going to spend their money on stopping immigrants on their souther border and hold back nationals on their northern border. Particularly when the US employers give illegals jobs. Its our responsibility to protect the southern border, not theirs.

In this case, nationalities that live close to the Mexican border will get deported and transported in buses back to their countries. The rest of the immigrants that come from far away countries like India, China, Yemen, etc... They will probably get to stay in Mexico. I've seen it many times. I've got friends that entered Mexico illegally. They were detained and let go within a couple of weeks. They were ordered to check in with immigration every week for a set amount of time. Show proof of employment. Afterwards, they become legal citizens of Mexico, if they stay for five years. If they qualify to become refugees, YES... they do get free education, housing, food and free emergency medical care. Mexico has a large community of immigrant refugees. One of these communities is from the Congo, Africa. They get welfare, housing, etc by Mexican tax payers. The other option, is to return to their native countries, if they wish. Its only in this country that a segment of the population complain if illegal immigrants are allowed to remain legally.
"We"? I thought you were a U.S. citizen living here in the U.S.

I think "we" in her sentence is actually referring to the US

"We" as in the USA don't follow the same procedures as Mexico. Mexico deported most of these illegals found in these 2 tractor trailers.

"We" as in the USA would have handed them U visas, food stamps, welfare handouts for the rest of their lives.

Mexico doesn't have a generous welfare program for it's own citizens, it's not going to turn over food stamps, WIC, free housing, free health care to people moving there illegally. Nothing nearly as generous as we provide.

Mexico actually deported these people. The USA does almost no deportation - you have to really beg to be deported -- maybe after the 6th DWI with injuries, or after a few murders you can be deported.

Mexico handles its illegals more effectively than our government does.

Wrong! When foreigners are caught entering our country illegally, they are generally detained, and “entitled” to a hearing, of course, at U.S. taxpayers’ expense. In the interim, they are fed, housed, and offered medical treatment, also at U.S. taxpayers’ expense. Some are simply released and given another opportunity to successfully cross. Rarely, are illegals deported “right away.” No, that would be inhumane. We must at least give them an opportunity to plead their case for remaining in this country. After all, many are crossing the border to be reunited with family.

The USA has also been sending $billions to Mexico over the years to help them improve their law enfocement capabilities. I would not be at all surprised if these scanners or the funds for them were sent to Mexico by the USA.

You're right. I stand corrected. I misread his/her comments.
