The other side of the story

Considered felons by the government, these migrants fear detention, rape and robbery. Police and soldiers hunt them down at railroads, bus stations and fleabag hotels. Sometimes they are deported; more often officers simply take their money

Who are these poor unfortunates? Would you believe Central American migrants in Mexico?

And though Mexico demands humane treatment for its citizens who migrate to the U.S., regardless of their legal status, Mexico provides few protections for migrants on its own soil

Funny how this story never made it into the news…

Memo to El Presidente: Practice what you preach!
