MEXICO CITY (AP) - The closure of an American-run railroad in Mexico stranded thousands of U.S.-bound Central American migrants near the Guatemala border.

Many have been deported today by immigration officials.

Some migrants tried to walk hundreds of miles to the next working rail line. Others -- with no money or provisions -- turned themselves in to Mexican authorities.

One more reason to put the military on the border. We need to defend this nation now or we will suffer the consequences for our inaction later on.

I agree with Hawk 100%. We are suffering from it already I fear. Our government is more concerned with policing the world instead of its own borders.

This is similar to the Millions of immigrants who are leaving their historical homelands in Africa and going to staging areas along the African Coast to take a boat ride to Europe. This is going to be a huge crisis in the coming years.

People are borrowing thousands of dollars from friends and relatives with the understanding that once they make it to the "first world" they will be rich and be able to pay off their debts. The poor people in these third world countries are led to believe that if they make it to Europe or America they will be rich.
