Knowing that their own gvmt does not support nor back them up. Why even risk your neck .
Thank God many of the border patrol DOES CARE about the illegals, the one's that don't should not have the job. It is like a cop, if you
are biased against a group of people, they do not belong anymore either.

As you stated.

And it is a damning indictment against the Patrulla Frontera in how they treat Guatemalans and OTM's when illegally passing through Mexico.

And a damning indictment to the people in charge of Abu Ghraib. But hey, sh*t happens.

Bad people in the world.

Loyalty to ones country may be a foreign concept to you, Bianca. And when I say ones country I mean the actual country one lives, works and has children in. You know, that country

And Abu Ghraib was corrected. Although; the inmates there were still treated much better than when Saddam was in charge.

What is Mexico's excuse?

Maybe if our Border Patrol borrowed a page or three from their Mexican counterparts-----------we would have far fewer illegals daring to cross the border.

So the people in Abu Ghraib had an excuse for sexually abusing its inmates?

You make obvious your disdain for Mexico, but its kind of hypocritical to point out the flaws of individuals to trash the whole country when people could easily do the same thing to the US.

I don't think the people in charge of Abu Ghraib were representative of the American people, and I dont think whatever the corrupt law enforcement does is representative of the Mexican people.
