Mexico’s Secretariat of the Interior is set to implement restrictions.

MEXICO.- La Bestia, the train that hundreds of Central Americans travel on top of and in between its wagons on their journey through Mexico to the U.S. border, may no longer be used for this purpose. According to Mexico’s Secretariat of the Interior, Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, measures are being taken to restrict non-permitted use of the train. La Bestia has already claimed the lives of many migrants riding on it, and has also resulted in hundreds of injuries (including dismemberment) to those who have fallen off it.

In an interview reported on by Proceso Magazine, Osorio Chong states, “we are going to take control of this, we cannot continue to allow them [migrants] to put their lives at risk. It is our responsibility given that it happens within our borders. La Bestia is meant for the transportation of cargo, not passengers; we will have to put in place restrictions and during thenext coming days we will announce what they are.”

These measures will be implemented specifically in Tabasco and Chiapas which are the main states where migrants...

“Who are you going to believe? Mexico or O’s regime?’’<< Neither of them. They’re two scorpions in a bottle.

Rumors abound, and talk is cheap. I'll believe this when I actually see it implemented. Independently verified.

Next week: Secretary John Kerry said it made him feel proud to present the Mexican President with a giant 20 foot long Check for 7million dollars, enough to cover the costs of at least two La Bestia Transport. Buses. They will be called La Bonita y la Bestia, or Beauty and the Beast.

Maybe Barry is going to start sending convoys of Border Patrol vehicles down to Central America to pick them up. Either that or they’ll be getting airline tickets paid for by the taxpayers. “Refugees” have it pretty rough these days. s/

Probably first class all the way from now on, getting them used to how they will be treated on arrival.

HA!

In other countries, all immigration asylum and visa requests are channeled through the local American Embassy.

Look for an uptick in embassy staff being assigned/hired to points south and a corresponding uptick in SNAP applications. Then they’ll buy the buses.

Maybe after Barry decided to buy a house in California it occurred to him that the illegal “children” gang members might storm his gates or curse one of his daughters with an unwanted baby.

I bet Mexico is tired of having to take care of the injured on their way north. I bet a dollar for donuts on this one.

I want to know what arrangements were made between obowelmovement and mexico. This is total BS.

I worked there and watched the Mexico military shut every road down. It was an iron fist with stiff penalties. This was arranged and paid for. I have driven from Chiapas to the US and back. I hired private security (Federales) for my company to escort oil field equipment with the blessings of Pemex and the Federales . You have no idea how treacherous it is and how long it takes. Total BS!

Be advised, author Cal Trimble thinks a RR car is called a “wagon.”

oh, I dunno. Maybe 1.4 billion for starters?:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/04/17/AR2008041703786.html

A lot of money will be ‘hidden’ from daylight

watch for an uptick in this program:
http://www2.ed.gov/programs/rsamigrant/index.html

and this:
http://www.immigrationdirect.com/blog/2014/05/uscis-grants-support-immigrant-organizations/?SL_ClassKey=1

and on spending such as this:
http://archive.11alive.com/news/article/226680/3/Over-1M-in-stimulus-money-spent-on-migrant-worker-population

but more importantly, on the specific organizations involved in implementing this and that, such as this one:
http://www.fordfoundation.org/issues/human-rights/protecting-immigrant-and-migrant-rights/for-grant-seekers

and the assorted Mexican-and Central American government sponsored racist groups, such as LaRaza and Mencha, who accept the funds to administer this and that

They’ve been led to believe Obama will buy their train tickets, instead. It’s the humane thing to do.

The Houston Comical would be for expanding it down to Central America. Commuter line for low income workers into downtown.
