It seems to me that not only is it a liability if those people get hurt, but also would add to the freight costs due to the added weight. Why is it allowed?

Also, why doesn't the mex govt force them off by gunpoint?

Addressing your last sentence it is probably because Mexico wants them to make it into the U.S.

Damn good question about liability. And about Mexico, we know why.


Agree with you and oldglory.

Agree with you and oldglory.
Then why wouldn't Mexico have its hand out for a mordida from the US govt like every other leech country (Colombia, Israel, Egypt, etc) to keep the illegals from boarding?
It seems like a simple $500 million check might get the mex govt to cooperate?

That about sums it up.

That and it's another group of people that Mexicans can extort bribes from and abuse along the way.

That's actually a good idea, help cut off the flow at one of it's sources.

It would help the US save money, time and enforcement here.

It is every country's responsibility to secure its own borders. Apparently, our government wants these people to come here or they would build the wall and remove all the incentives for them to come here.

They pay.

The people that should be watching and keeping people off the train are counting the money the people paid them to ride.

You're probably right because word is that drug cartels make a LOT of coin smuggling illegal aliens in 2014.
