Nice try.
Mexico doesn't owe America anything.
Mexico didn't "send" its illegals, and the US hasn't "received" them.

Its not up to Mexico to secure the United States border. Thats America's problem. You'd rather dump all the blame on the country the people are coming from, instead of the elements in our own country that allowed them in the first place.

Acknowledging that illegals are going to keep crossing anyways, and trying to help them from getting taken advantage of by coyotes or getting lost and dying out in the desert? Which by the way, I already know your against preventing.

The instructions tell people to not provide false names or identifications to authorities, and instruct them to cooperate with authorities.

I would think you guys would be for that.


It also tells them how to cross safely, and not to trust coyotes/polleros so they don't get put in a situation where they will die.

I would HOPE that you guys would have enough decency to be for that, but I don't want to overestimate you.

It also tells them their rights. This being America, I would think you guys wouldn't want to keep people from knowing their rights.

The only booklet that the government of Mexico should be printing is one telling it's citizens to stay home. Most countries simply would not put up with this crap. Eventually the point will be reached where Americans will have had enough.

And clinics shouldn't give out condoms, and just tell people "Dont have sex!"

People are ALWAYS going to be crossing into the United States illegally.
I don't usually trust the government of Mexico, but I think it was a noble thing to do.
I don't think it was an evil, maniacal thing.


They could've just ignored their poorest people crossing that desert and dying out there, but instead they tried to let them know how to at least survive the deadly journey and how to cooperate with authorities if they do get caught.

Its not like they gave them a damn list of employers to apply at!
