At least 40 Central American migrants were abducted this week while crossing southeastern Mexico en route to the United States, Amnesty International said Friday.
The migrants were pulled off a freight train in Medias Aguas, Veracruz state, the Mexico chapter of AI said, citing accounts from witnesses.
An estimated 140,000 Central Americans undertake the hazardous journey across Mexico each year on their way to the United States, down from nearly 300,000 annually before the U.S. economic downturn of 2008.
The trek is a dangerous one, with criminals and corrupt Mexican officials preying on the migrants.

maybe they should keep their people home
They should be able to shoot on sight. No questions asked.
We need to carpet bomb a “dead zone” about a km wide the entire lenght of their side of the border then shoot anyone who enters it.
If Mexico would just clear a 10 mi zone south of the border to all human presence, things would be so much easier.
Don’t throw rocks at armed men. End of discussion.
Bingo! Any moving thing on that side of the river is a target.
