That’s too bad.
the contortions the media goes through to curry favor with politicians is laughable. If they are not illegally entering the country then what exactly are they doing? How does any other word fit them?
At least they didn’t call them “commuters.”
Can’t garner up much sympathy for dead criminals.
Mexico knows there can be hundreds on this train at times and yet do nothing.Where are all the protesters,marches,drums,demanding Mexico take action on this ? They know it happens again and again..Church could well deamand some action as well.. but they remain silent.
