Hey everybody if Mexico is going to build a wall to stop illegals from enter Mexico now why can't we build a wall like Mexico is doing to keep illegals out of our country.We share the same goal as Mexico, meaning this is to keep illegals out of America. Just Like Mexico wants to keep illegals out it's country ? Please understand it will take a few minutes to read. I ask if reading becomes hardship for you.Please answer another question...........

Guatemala City - Travelling without documents to the United States from Latin America can turn into an odyssey, in which migrants have to elude common criminals and drug traffickers along the way, not to mention the laws on migration. But now another obstacle is emerging: a wall between Guatemala and Mexico.

According to the head of customs for Mexico's tax administration, Raúl Díaz, in order to stop boats carrying contraband, the southern Mexican state of Chiapas is building a wall along the border river Suchiate, similar to the one the United States is building along its southern border with Mexico.

"It could also prevent the free passage of illegal immigrants," admitted the Mexican official.

Smugglers use the Suchiate River to move products across an international border without paying duty taxes, but at the same time, thousands of Central and South Americans cross the river in their attempts to reach the United States in search of opportunity - and without the required documents.

Some 500,000 migrants cross Mexican territory without permission each year, according to Mexico's National Commission on Human Rights (CNDH).

The intention to build a border wall has triggered a wave of opposition from civil society and government organisations, with charges that it is a "senseless" measure that will not succeed in preventing undocumented migrants from crossing the border on their way north.

"We are watching the Mexican government's initiative with concern because the migrants are in a situation of highest vulnerability, as demonstrated by the massacre in Tamaulipas, where five Guatemalans died," Erick Maldonado, executive secretary of Guatemala's National Council on Migrants, told IPS.

The cruelty to which undocumented migrants are often subjected was laid bare Aug. 23, when 72 people coming from Guatemala, as well as El Salvador, Honduras, Ecuador and Brazil, were brutally murdered in San Fernando, a town in the eastern Mexican state of Tamaulipas. They were presumably killed by the Los Zetas drug cartel, which is also involved in kidnapping and exploiting migrants.

In addition, a total of 9,758 kidnappings of migrants were reported in Mexico from September 2008 to February 2009, according to the CNDH.

Putting up a wall on the Guatemala-Mexico border "is going to make the migrants' situation worse, because to meet their needs they are always going to find blind points where there are no migration or security controls, which implies greater risks," said Maldonado.

The vulnerability of the Latin Americans, and especially Central Americans, who emigrate "without papers" to the United States has remained at the forefront in recent months, not only because of intense violence like the Tamaulipas massacre, but also because of government measures taken to fight illegal migration.

Law SB1070, enacted Apr. 23 by the southwestern U.S. state of Arizona, authorises police to inquire into the immigration status of any person based on "reasonable suspicion." Critics say the legislation leads to racial profiling and violations of civil liberties.

The long line of obstacles that migrants face on their way to the United States gets longer with the construction of the wall on the Mexico-Guatemala border.Read full story at link http://www.banderasnews.com/1009/edat-anotherwall....

S. can't nor would desire to they attempt to "restoration" Mexico. And Mexico does not "hate" the U. S.. international locations have not got thoughts at first, and 2d of all maximum Mexicans are no longer anti-US notwithstanding the stupidity and bigotry that's now in vogue contained in the U. S. is changing some minds down right here. maximum Mexicans would appreciate vacationing the U. S. yet maximum have not got any desire to grow to be like human beings and obtain handouts from the U. S. government. Many want the prospect to make extra money than is at present obtainable and not using a school training right here, and an outstanding sort of would appreciate a huge gamble to artwork contained in the U.

    What hypocrites. mexico treats their own black citizens with racism making them sing the national anthem to prove their citizenship. Illegals are murdered and tortured in their country. but they feel the illegal aliens from mexico are okay to come here and murder and torture American citizens. This country should be cut off from every one else.
