Mexican Human Rights official: Criminal migrants "not a problem," they have needs too

David MenziesMission Specialist

After following the migrant caravan for five days, I raised concerns with Edgar Corso Sosa of the National Human Rights Commission of Mexico. He wasn't bothered by the known violent criminals in the group, because, he says, they have needs too.

So if the United States won't take them, does Mexico as a nation have the resources to absorb the 5,000 to 7,000 migrants currently moving through their country?

I’ve also been to Mexico about a dozen times in past years Carole Masse… But probably never again… The country has an endemic “double standard” on living conditions and seemingly always has… The Ruling Class is not about to let go of their privileges in spite of the last federal election… That’s why the vote in Brazil was such a shocker and why the Mexican elites are probably not sleeping as well these nights…

Needs that can be met in Mexico.
Keep them there.

This guy can say whatever he wants but he’s a total hypocrite. I went to Mexico City for work several times. They have millions of people living in slums that cover hills as far as you can see around the city. They don’t even know how many are there. They arrive and take over a hill in a few years, cutting down all vegetation until there’s nothing left but continuous slums. You pass by the highway and you can smell the horrible scent of open sewer, because the gov’t doesn’t build sewage system. Anyone with a little bit of money has to protect their houses with electrified fences. In front of every mid to high-end store, they have armed guards to protect the customers when getting out of their cars. You cannot take any taxi because they will take you as hostage for money. Going into the city, you have a large boulevard of 50 km long, lined up with barracks, one after the other, selling stuff, food, whatever. So this guy can talk all he wants about the illegals and their needs that we should all satisfy, his own population lives in abject poverty. He is part of the privileged in Mexico, probably corrupted like most of them.

Send air conditioned buses to take them back to their villages, give them food and water, and return them to where they came from.

Maybe he is happy, because he knows that traitor Trudeau will take them.

Edgar Corso Sosa and other nitwits that preach the same crap will never practice what they preach by housing, feeding & clothing these migrants. Because they know damn well that they are lying hypocrites.

This is the same with Trudeau and his cabinet of virtue signaling lying hypocrites who preach the same thing. They are okay with it as long as all those migrants stay a long way away from them and the tax payers foot the bill.

As soon as those whining about letting in loads of migrants put their money, home and family on the line with those migrants, then and only then will I consider listening to what they say.

My thoughts exactly COMMON SENSE… If these migrants are “no problemo” then let them set up a tent camp at your hacienda…. After all, Mexico is also technically a “refugee haven country”… Corso Soso is talking B.S. as are most Mexican officials involved in this circus, and he knows it…

The Human Rights Official mentioned that people from Spain used to move to Mexico. That might start again as the Lefty President of Spain is bringing NGO Ship loads from Africa. It didn’t take long for these Africans to go crazy as they injured 7 Border Guards as they came in.

Dirk Kanis…..Re your link, Britain turns away Christian as to not upset Muslims.
That Theresa May is a real piece of work; If it’s not the EU giving her orders, its the Muslims in Britain.

I hear the Gambling Industry in the UK is making lots of money, as the people bet that she would be fired a year ago, therefore the house wins.

You understand the end game now, I hope. You are all too rich in the West, and you have the responsibility to fulfill the needs and demands of all the poors in the world. You, me, and everybody else, except the billionaires of this world who are getting richer and richer with their money hidden in tax heavens. My answer, Sir, is f..c u.

They can all set up tents in his back yard, sleep in his basement, sleep in his children’s rooms. They have needs to you know, so don’t be a hypocrite, take care of their needs yourself, that would set the ultimate example of practicing what you preach to your citizens.
Not a chance.

Come December 2018, when Trudeau signs on to the UN order that permits people from ‘anywhere’ to migrate to ‘anywhere’ and the ‘anywhere’ that they migrate to will, of course be, North America the UK and Canada who’s current residents will be taxed to death just to help pay for them and whom will be expected to to feed them and when they have sex with our six year old sons, be expected to pretend it didn’t happen to them……………………………..God have mercy on Trudeau’s Soul, he will need it.

The criminal aspect is a problem but its not THE problem. All those people who think that human migration is their right, are the problem. It is not their right to force their way into a country because they want a better life. There are laws to be followed, not modified to accommodate invaders, and if they are forcing their way through borders they are invaders.

Don’t tell me all those thousands of people are literally in imminent danger.The responsibility rests with their OWN governments, not with the U.S. or Canada. How many jobs do they think can be created for them? We have our own homeless, needy and impoverished to care for.
