About a dozen men, some literally spitting with anger and desperation, were firmly led off the track, an agent's hand on the back of their necks neck, and taken to waiting vans for processing and deportation. Agents helped a lone female migrant clambering over a coupling between cars to reach their van, telling her "Walk carefully, don't fall."

"Don't touch me," she snarled.

The scene early Friday would have been unheard of in Mexico during the decades in which Central American migrants were allowed to freely hop freight trains to reach the U.S. border. But the raid is part of a crackdown that has sharply reduced the number of women and children trying to make their way to the United States, where they turn themselves into the U.S. Border Patrol an exodus that caused what U.S. leaders call a crisis at the border.

Mexico authorities stage midnight migrant raid

Has the world gone nuts?! Mexico DOING to illegal aliens that it hates the US for doing to its people here illegally.

Mexico is probably worried about these Central American "migrants" taking jobs from their illegal aliens here in the U.S. It's kind of like karma.

I've read that many Mexicans have figured out that these illegals from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras will work cheaper than Mexicans. So, sleazy Mexican employers hire them instead of the natives.

It is VERY hard to be in Mexico without documents.

They will not stay there long.

I think everyone should give Mexico a big "seal of approval" on this one. It's a positive step forward from
Mexico. Credit where credit's due you know......

I posted months ago that things would change when it becomes Mexico's problem.

People getting hurt on "the beast" is getting expensive for Mexico.

BTW....the last I head the fees for the coyotes are down to $2000.

The free market at work.....anyone can be a coyote.

No, in my opinion it just makes them hypocrites and I already posted what I think their ulterior motive is.

I'm sure the current administration here in the US was involved.

Back in the 1970's my wife and I took a trip to Mexico City. While we were there I bought a new wallet. Not thinking I took out outdated cards, out of my old wallet, and threw them in the waste can at the hotel. Today I never would have done that because of fears of identify theft. Several hours after that we had just got on a sightseeing bus. We no sooner sat down than heavily armed police entered our bus and wanted to know why I threw away my old cards. They did leave me go after my explanation, identification and promises to take my old cards with me. Perhaps they already knew of the problems we would be facing in years to come with identity theft?

The moral of the story was that you not only had to worry about the cards/documents you carried; you also had to worry about the ones you threw away!

There's a misconception in the U.S. that Mexico guards their borders like a hawk. They do not. They watch their borders no more and no less than the U.S. Mexico has hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens that have made Mexico their home not only from Latin American countries but from ALL over the world.

Like someone above mentioned I believe a call from someone high up in our government made a telephone call to an equally important person in Mexico City to do something about the infamous train, The Beast, and the Mexican government concurred. It was a political play.

-Cheers.
