, Mexico is dealing with a substantial increase of Central American migrants, including unaccompanied minors, crossing its borders. Earlier this month, Mexico’s president announced plans to crack down on the illegal flow and strengthen security along the southern border with Guatemala.
That has human rights advocates worried. They say the country’s already strained immigration service has a long reputation of migrant abuse. With the recent rise in immigrants traveling through Mexico, reports of human rights violations are climbing, too.
I think Mexico’s system is a model for how to handle illegal immigration. We should give it a try – with the Mexicans illegally trying to immigrate into our country.
