Here’s a story which should get more publicity, but you’re not likely to see it in the Mainstream American Media.

Last month in the Mexican state of Chiapas, near the Guatemalan border, Mexican police (the federal PFP and Chiapas state border cops) stopped a a truck and discovered 169 Central American illegal aliens in its trailer.

The Central Americans included 26 children and a 15-year old girl who was 5 months pregnant. Nationally speaking, 161 were from El Salvador and 8 from Guatemala, both countries poorer than Mexico.

Apparently the illegal aliens weren’t keen to vacate the trailer. In order to get them out, Mexican police gassed the trailer, and the Central Americans got out

I assume the gas they used was CS (tear gas), which I’ve been exposed to as part of training in the U.S. Army.

Can you just imagine the outcry that would ensue if U.S. immigration officials used gas on Mexican illegal aliens?

The media uproar would probably exceed the coverage given to the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

We'd never hear the end of it and Mexico would be the biggest complainer, next to the ACLU and LULAC.
