Mexican Corruption Helps Propel the Central American Exodus
By Jerry Kammer on June 11, 2019

The Wall Street Journal posted a story yesterday that offers both encouragement and a caveat to those who are counting on Mexico to help contain the exodus of Central Americans to the United States. "Police Check Buses, Trains in Migrant Crackdown" reads the headline above the story, which quotes a just-detained Guatemalan saying "Mexico doesn't want us here anymore."

The story concludes with a cautionary note about corrupt Mexican officials at roadside checkpoints that dot the route northward. The officials take bribes from migrants traveling on commercial buses. "If the checkpoints were working as they are supposed to rather than just as a way of generating bribes, that would work," says Adam Isacson of the Washington Office on Latin America.

"Mexican corruption" is NEVER going to change or otherwise be reformed internally.

At some point, we may have to REPLACE it -- by overthrowing the Mexican government and replacing it with a military government run under United States rule.

Use martial law to clean the place up...
