I wouldn't be surprised if after "rescuing" them and giving them food and water the police didn't escort them to the US border.

I'm sure that Mexico calls them what they are: illegals and Mexico reports them as being illegals, and not the PC "migrants" that the US is so hard pressed to call them. Mexico doesn't take kindly to illegals being in their country.

Mexican immigration agents say they have rescued 150 migrants who were packed into the freight compartment of a truck without adequate water.

The migrants are mainly from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras. They told investigators they paid smugglers between $1,750 and $3,000 to be taken to the U.S. border.

Where did they get between $1,750 to $3,000 to pay the smugglers? Oh, wait. Their illegal relatives in the US sent that tax free money to them.

Let's not forget the PC term for them of "undocumented" either. I guess Mexico doesn't want any competition from their neighbors to the south of them for American jobs, taxes and resources so they are stopping them from getting that far. They want to continue to have that opportunity only for their own citizens.

You have to wonder how someone "poor" could get that much money together. I can assure you for a citizen, many could not get $2,000 saved in their lifetime and most pay much more. My husband was reading me an article that said they bring drugs in to earn their way. Lovely.

This is an interesting article: Coyote: 'If you turn yourself in to immigration, there is no problem' | Al Jazeera America and even more shows how critical securing the border is.
