US Owned Mexican Railroad Transporting Thousands of Illegals to US Border Facing Charges in Mexico


Posted 1 hour ago by Dave Jolly Filed under Crime, Immigration

In 2005, Kansas City Southern (KSC) purchased Mexican Railroad TFM, S.A. de C.V.. The purchase, which included all of the common stock held by the parent company, was done to create a NAFTA railroad. NAFTA or the North American Free Trade Agreement was a trade agreement signed by the US, Canada and Mexico to form a trilateral trade bloc designed to boost trade and the economy of the three North American countries.

KCS planned on using the railroad to link to the Mexican city of Lazaro Cardenas with the US. Lazaro Cardenas is a deep port city on the southern Pacific coast. Using the Mexican port to import products from China, KCS could bypass the expensive costs of using the ports in Los Angeles and Long Beach.




These days, the KCSM (Kansas City Southern de Mexico) railroad still runs from southern Mexico to the US border and is transporting more than just trade goods. The train has become a major mode of transportation for thousands of illegals from Central and South America, including unaccompanied children.

But the train ride north has become a dangerous ride for many. Illegals are being robbed, beaten and murdered on the train. The ride has become so notoriously dangerous that it has been nicknamed the Death Train or La Bestia (The Beast).

In response to the dangers presented by the Death Train has prompted the attorney general of the Mexican state of Veracruz to file criminal complaints with federal prosecutors against KCS and Ferrosur, the Mexican railway operating the train through central Mexico. The charges include robbery, human trafficking, kidnapping, murder and extortion.




Last month a report issued by the Washington Office of Latin America (a non-governmental group that works for the civil rights of immigrants, legal and illegal, described the Death Train rise, saying:


“Migrants in the southern border zone are drawn to ‘La Bestia,’ the train that heads northward to central Mexico and then on to the U.S. border. For hundreds of miles they ride on the roofs of the train cars trying to avoid fatal falls, hot days, frigid nights, and low-clearance tunnels. Every eight to ten days or so, trains depart from two routes that originate near the southern border.”

“The stunning frequency of kidnapping, extortion, human trafficking, rape, and homicide puts Central American migrants’ plight in Mexico atop the list of the Western Hemisphere’s worst humanitarian emergencies.”

Is it really any surprise that an American based company is providing a major mode of transportation for thousands of Central and Southern American illegals? After all, it’s an America president that was openly inviting them here with the promise of amnesty, so why shouldn’t an American railroad help bring them to our border?

What I want to know is why hasn’t KCSM taken steps to keep the illegals from hopping on board their trains? It shouldn’t be that hard to place several armed guards on the trains to keep people from boarding and to chase off those that have. Once they start doing that, word will get out to avoid the Death Train and that should help reduce the number of illegals pouring into our country. We need to start a writing campaign demanding that KCS take measures to keep illegals off their Mexican trains. Perhaps if they get flooded with emails, letters and phone calls they just might take action.

From the article:
[[ What I want to know is why hasn’t KCSM taken steps to keep the illegals from hopping on board their trains? It shouldn’t be that hard to place several armed guards on the trains to keep people from boarding and to chase off those that have. ]]

I wouldn't be surprised if the top officials at KCS received calls from very-highly-placed officials in the administration to take a "hands off" approach to the New Children's Crusade trains -- OR ELSE.

The gubmint can do a lot to make like miserable to those trying to run a railroad.

Hmmmm.... didn't that gal named Rand write a book about that ???

yah....all kinds of video out there of the trains running along with hundreds of people on top of the cars.  The Mexican Government is allowing this because the problem will belong to those stupid Gringos.

One A-10 Warhog could make absolutely certain that these trains stop running for a long, long time.  Of course, that would require a US President with a set of actual balls.

When I was going to college, back in the day when you could get a good summer job, I worked on the railroad.  Getting on a SLOW moving train isn't difficult, if you know what your doing.  For all those people to get on the trains they have to be stopped and for a while to boot.  Looks like collusion to me.

All aboard the 'death train' for the USA: Extraordinary images of hundreds of Central Americans climbing on top of lethal cargo train 'The Beast' in attempt to reach Mexico-U.S. border

    Hundreds of 'passengers' pile onto the freight train that departs from Mexico's southern Chiapas state
    It is headed for Mexico City, where immigrants will attempt to travel north to the U.S. border
    But gangs have hijacked the route, charging $100 (£64) or more for permission to mount the train
    Passengers risk robbery, kidnapping, rape, and murder to start a new life in America
    Mexico's government was expected to put an end to the problem this week, but didn't

This is 'La Bestia' - or 'The Beast' - which is perhaps the most treacherous train in the world.

It is not built to carry passengers, but that doesn't stop around 1,500 migrants piling on board the freight train's roof.

They are trying to reach the Mexico-U.S. border to start a new life in America. Most are refugees fleeing endemic violence in Central America. But they face a terrifying journey ahead of them. 

For years Mexico's notorious drug gangs have been in control of the route, charging $100 (£64) or more for permission to mount the train.

Threats, attacks and extortion continue en route after it departs from Arriaga, in Mexico's southern Chiapas state, around 160 miles north of the Guatemala border.

Operated with the complete cooperation of the Mexican Government, who views these people as the Gringo's problem

Wouldn't it be easier and cheaper in the long run to just annex these countries and call them American territories?  I say that with only a bit of sarcasm.  Seriously, let's just spend the money that we're spending on fences, border security, law enforcement, court costs, food stamps and all the other benefits they garner when they come here.......on some real infrastructure and take over these crummy countries, then these hard-working people can enjoy the opportunities they we enjoy - and be fully contributing members of our society, paying taxes and serving in a capacity that builds their own communities.

Seriously.  Is that an unthinkable option, considering the costs that the present situation is exacting on our country?  Just take 'em over - BOOM!
