It seems that a few Mexican mayors are upset that we are deporting their criminals back to their safe, family-friendly towns. Just when you thought Mexico couldn’t have more gall, BAM!, they outdo themselves yet again!
A coalition of Mexican mayors has asked the United States to stop deporting illegal immigrants who have been convicted of serious crimes in the U.S. to Mexican border cities, saying the deportations are contributing to Mexican border violence, FOXNews.com reported Wednesday.
Ciudad Juarez Mayor Jose Reyes blamed U.S. deportation policy for contributing to his city’s violence, saying that of the 80,000 people deported to Juarez in the past three years, 28,000 had U.S. criminal records — including 7,000 convicted rapists and 2,000 convicted murderers. Reyes and the other Mexican mayors said that when the U.S. deports criminals back to Mexico, it should fly them to their hometowns, not just bus them to the border.
Oh sure, while we’re at it, we’ll give them manicures and pedicures, too! I’m not sure how to say “Frak you!” in Spanish, but I think it would be appropriate in this case.
