(Reuters) - A cargo train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border derailed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, stranding about 1,300 migrants, emergency services said.

Many of the migrants aboard were young people and nobody was injured when the train nicknamed "the Beast" came off the tracks, a spokesman for local emergency services said.

They are migrants util they hit our border. Then they are illegal migrants, or as Obama calls them, future Democrats.

What is Mexico doing to prevent these illegal invaders from entering their country?

I mean besides handing them maps to head north.

Maybe we should be busing them on up to Canada, land of “free” healthcare!

They had the toughest southern border on Earth for a while but they have now made deals with Central American governments to allow illegals to transit through Mexico.

I'm not kidding.

1300....on one train...and the train company is OK with that? What the heck is going on here? Did they hijack the train? Who loaded the people like cattle onto the train?

There’s more wrong here than a train derailing! C’mon already people ...wake up!

I can get Chris Plante on a local station and this morning a lady called him to say that someone went into Mexico to interview people in the shelters there...just south of the border..

she said that several of the men said that they had traveled to the border with their wife and children and sent the rest of the family across the border without him, knowing that they would not be sent back...

they said they would wait 2 weeks and then go across themselves after their families had been accepted as refugees..

makes me wonder how many of those “unaccompanied alien children” have a Mom and Dad just across the border and not 100s of miles back in Guatemala

There is no way in hell the US government is not directly organizing the transit of these people to our border.

It is a government, law enforcement, and corporate sponsored INVASION. Nothing short of it.

To paraphrase LBJ, Obama says: “I’ll have those wetbacks voting Democrat for the next 100 years”.

What is going on in their countries? Why isn’t it all over the media?

yeah...something is majorly wrong here...

All those people had to get on somewhere, who isn’t checking passports etc. WE know they show up with no ID, no paperwork, unfit for travel...and yet they are loaded on trains bound for the United States!

This is so way out of the norm...have their countries collapsed?

Perhaps some Predator drones can be tasked to make this a regular occurrence, and persuade the illegals not to take the chance. Something in an anti-personnel load that would not damage the PAYING cargo. ..

Blow Mexican railroad tracks.

If that nation wants to be complicit in this, then it is war.

And Obama will no doubt add an appropriation for train repair in his next funding request.

The train was probably overloaded. No satire intended.
