Mexicans are among the biggest soda drinkers in the world, so residents of the southern city of Ciudad Altamirano were hit hard when first Coca-Cola then Pepsi closed their distribution centers amid drug gang extortion demands.

Danni is going to say we need to bring more of them here to the U.S.

Why, I don't know.

I correctly guessed this was in Guerrero before I even clicked on it. It's one of the most troubled states in Mexico right now. For those who don't know, it's a southern coastal state where Acapulco is located.

Sooner or later Mexico is going to have to face up to the gangs and cartels which are ruining their country. The 1% will probably have to fund a much larger military to go after them.

And quite honestly, until we aggressively start enforcing our laws against employers who hire them I just don't want to hear whining from conservatives. Those employers hire them, take advantage of them and then contribute to the campaigns of Republicans.

It seems like you only want to go after the employers, just like many Republicans only want to go after the border and those illegally crossing it. It's not either/or, and you're both part of the problem for acting like it is.

#10 | Posted by shane Yesterday on the real Drudge, an article appeared that said 300 candidates for political office in Mexico have been murdered, and there is still a couple of weeks to go before the election. As bad as things get in this country, at least we have not fell to that level.

#12 | Posted by snoofy, What is your solution? We don't put kids in jail with their parents. Asylum seekers do not sneak in, they can get the paper work at any border crossing. If the parents don't want to be separated, don't break the law. People who get arrested are separated from their children every day. You have to desire those little children to be in a big holding cell exposed to every illness on earth. So bad, ICE and the border guards now have to wear gloves and masks when moving them.

"What is your solution?"

Obviously it's to put an end to the Trump policy of separating children from their parents.

You haven't explained why it's better to detain the children apart from their parents.

How is that better than detaining the family as a unit? What purpose does it serve?

I'm all ears.

#18 | Posted by snoofy, The problem is the safety of prisoners under arrest are the responsibility of the jailer. The parents are there, and so are about one in five being a criminal from Mexico. Some of those are child molesters and rapist. So you big hearten humanitarian, are you sure you want to put them in that big holding cell? Illness, dangerous individuals and the rule of law are on my side. What is on yours?

"The problem is the safety of prisoners under arrest are the responsibility of the jailer."

They're detainees, not arrestees.

Regardless, youre suggesting a child is safer being detained separately from their asylum-seeking parents, rather than being detained with their asylum-seeking parents. Same for labor-seeking parents.

What's behind that notion? How do those parents present a threat to their kids?

"Some of those are child molesters and rapist."

Therefore, some aren't.

Obviously, nobody is advocating keeping children with parents that are intent on doing them harm.

But why separate children from parents that are not seeking to do them harm?

Danny,

While I agree strongly about arresting people that employee or harbor illegals, you would have to start with Hollywood, sanctuary cities, and the State of California. They are some of the biggest offenders. And then move on to the chicken plants and slaughter houses. But then there is the problem of fake IDs and I-9 forms which are available on every street corner in certain neighborhoods. But there is a solution...universal IDs for everyone. Then no employer has an excuse.

The GOP Party Platform explicit rejects a national ID... but not for the reason Dirk mentioned.

A national ID would necessarily be acceptable Voter ID for the states. That makes it harder for states to disenfranchise people for not having the right kind of ID, where the actual ID required changes from state to state. But a Federal ID like a passport or military ID is always going to be valid in every state.

Which part of Mexico? Did the ads indicate whether the work location was in the US or in an outsourced plant?

I guess Dirk has never had a job. Here's a clue Dirk...EVERYONE that earns a paycheck is required to show ID and prove who they are. One of the major problems is that the going rate for a State ID is about $40. Add that to the fact that so many illegals simply adopt the "we all look alike" mentality and bring in a real ID from someone else to get employed and do all the new hire paperwork. If you have 200-300 employees, you really don't know who is legal or not legal. If you ask them to produce ID after hiring, you WILL be sued. Democrat or Republican, that is reality.

Again. DIRKDEETROLL has apparently never had a job. And no one has said anything about denying due process. If they are here illegally, they can not be employed. They are by definition, another nation's citizens. There are certain crimes for which we adjudicate non-citizens (such as murder). For the rest, send them back to be adjudicated by their own governments. As for their children, I say, with some exceptions, send them back with the parents. The fact that they have allowed their governments to turn their own nations into travesties is partly, their problem.

Listen to this freedom-hater making excuses for a universal means of tracking the populace. All because he doesn't like brown people.

"The fact that they have allowed their governments to turn their own nations into travesties"

Is a racist fiction? Is vile victim-blaming garbage? Is somehow the problem of minors who, even were your racist narrative correct, had nothing to do with it?

You could never hold a job and still have a more productive like than you've managed to crank out thus far.

Because you're a parasite.

Not sure who this is in response to, but Mexico is a large country and there are safer areas, and not just in the tourist places.

No employer has a valid excuse now but that is a seperate argument. Try selling your universal ID argument to conservatives. Good luck with that.

I work for a company that has people of many races, nationalities, etc. but we don't hire illegal aliens. One basic way to recognize an illegal, they usually can't speak English. It isn't rocket science. Employers that hire them do so because, due to their illegal status, they work for less money. They know it, their employers know it. Those employers then go vote Republican, contribute to republicans because the Republican want to maintain the status quo on immigration while making a photo op at the border to pretend they don't.

So do Democrats. They view, correctly, illegal immigrants as future Democrat voters.

Thanks for the clarification. There have been a few revolts in Mexico in the last decade - all blacked-out on mainstream media, but I did meet a journalist from Oaxaca who watched the protesting teachers mowed-down by national guard. Mexico is run by cartels for cartels. Just ask the CIA who gave Clinton his governorship.
