U.S. Worsens Mexican Violence by Returning Criminal Aliens to Border Cities, Mayors Say???!!!

At the same time U.S. border states are warning of violence spilling over from Mexico, a coalition of Mexican mayors says deportation of illegal immigrants who have been convicted of serious crimes in U.S. is contributing to border violence in Mexico.

"It's almost perverse that foreign officials would blame us for sending their criminals back to their country. Sovereignty entails responsibility. This country needs to take responsibility for its own criminals, and other countries -- Mexico included -- need to take responsibility for their own criminals and deal with them," Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, told

Is this not Crazy?? Where do they THINK they should go?? What do you think?

  • Good grief. This coming from a government that prints maps and instructions for it's people to sneak into the US, ignores the ones who do, and treats it's own illegals far worse ~ while demanding and dictating how we handle ours.

    The idiot that came up with this thought needs a laxative so he stops thinking up shitty ideas ... and maybe clears his plumbing enough to prevent them from spewing out the wrong end like that.

  • I was surprised when I heard Calderone's speech DEMANDING that Arizona repeal the immigration bill, and for OUR Congress to support MEXICO'S stance!! I wasn;t the least bit surprised that it was downplayed by liberals here on CM!!

    And for those who don't do You tube, relax, it's video tape from his CONGRESSIONAL speech, and you can Google this speech and see it on any number of media outlets! :o)

  • That is absolutely ridiculous. The Mexican government can choose whether to incarcerate them when they are returned, or let them roam the streets. That is none of our concern. If someone is committing a crime here in the U.S., there is a penalty. If that person is also here illegally, I have no problem with sending them back.

  • It's crazy, OP, you absolutely called it! They don't want their own people back because they are a drain on their economy!

  • OMG, I thought that these people weren't criminals, they're just workers looking for a better life, so how is sending them back contributing to the crime rate!

  • Well, I guess we aren't sending them far enough south. How about we send them all the way down to Chavez?

  • Just today,Carly Fiorina stated that Mexico is approaching a failed state. This would be proof of that

    I've been wondering for weeks when someone would decide its time for the US to invade Ciudad Juarez as a matter of national security.
