Skip to comments.Mexican President Says US Deportations Feed Violence in Mexico
Posted on 10/18/2011 3:46:49 PM PDT by SwinneySwitch
President Felipe Calderon on Monday accused U.S. authorities of deporting Mexican criminals to save on judicial costs, a policy that ostensibly "exacerbates" violence.
Within the framework of the inauguration of National Immigration Week 2011 in this capital, Calderon said that, for example, U.S. authorities "are deporting up to 80,000 people in a year" into the border cities of Reynosa and Ciudad Juarez.
Some of these deported people "are migrants, certainly, probably all of them," although some were "already involved in criminal acts" in the United States.
"In the face of the dilemma of pursuing the legal process in the American courts, which implies costs for the administration of justice in that country, they simply prefer to deport them to border cities, by which the cycle of violence is exacerbated even more," he said.
The Mexican leader went on to say that it is "truly inhumane and scandalous" that U.S. authorities are apprehending and deporting alone and "without any protection" children as young as 6.

Well tough nachos.
What does he think that the swarms of illegals are doing to the U.S.?
Build the electric fence NOW!
Take your criminals back. We don’t want em.
Then let’s get the border under control so we don’t have to deport them. Problem solved.
Not our problem.
Some of these deported people “are migrants, certainly, probably all of them,” although some were “already involved in criminal acts” in the United States.
Boy now THAT is some arguement.
To bad SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sad Calderon.
I expect to see that on an Obama ad to Mexicans.
In fact that is surreal.
Well, that and all of the wretched illegal Americans that flood into his prosperous country to milk it dry...no wonder he’s pissed!
Boo effen hoo.
“What does he think that the swarms of illegals are doing to the U.S.?”
You answered your own question. He wants his criminals committing crimes in the U.S., not in Mexico. He is not a fool.
My right-wing ass bleeds for your sob story.
No kidding, its not like the best and brightest invade America. Mexico has benefited from those criminals invading America.
But deporting them LOWERS violence and mayhem HERE.
Tough titty said the kitty.
If the scum bag didn’t let his criminals flood across the border into the U.S., then HE wouldn’t be feeding the violence here.
So ESBAM Pendejo!
What the crap does he think having them come here - illegally - does that feed violence here?
We are not to send Mexican criminals back to their homeland, yet when Mexican criminals receive the death penalty in the US we are challenged yet again. Why don’t we let the Mexican government write our laws for us.
amrican racists train mexican illegals to be criminals.
Well, I see Alinsky’s work has been translated to Spanish.
Oh, better to have Mexican nationals do crime in the USA rather than in Mexico. HUH?
Rick Perry feels your pain, Felipe.
What nimble politics this is...!
He managed to satisfy Mexican objections to higher levels of violence by decrying deportations, yet conspicuously he totally side-stepped the matter of GUNS.
How funny, you know? You would think that a Mexican Presidential statement on higher levels of border violence in Mexico would ABSOLUTELY mention Fast And Furious about 20 times, right? He’d be screaming about it, si...?
WHY do ya think he did not.....?
BECAUSE HE WAS COMPLICIT.
Mexico is a small white elite trying to control an overwhelming indigenous population, it’s going to blow sooner or later.
Felipe, Felipe, Felipe . . . . . we need to talk, you ignorant peon!!
For decades, Mexico's version of the Mariel boatlift has been crossing illegally into America and we have tolerated it. We've tolerated your ignorant, non-English speakers coming here and taking jobs from citizens; we've tolerated them trying to impose the Mexican culture, language and (lack of) values on us, and, we've tolerated and paid dearly for the increasing crime rate that the criminals you exported to America have committed.
Don't cry to us if we send your criminals back home - al 20+ million of'em as soon as we can. Meantime, enjoy the trickle BEFORE it becomes a tidal wave!!
too f’n bad!
They try to clean up their cities by sending their trash here and we screw it all up by sending their trash back to them!
It's enough to make a democrat cry!
“Mexico is a small white elite trying to control an overwhelming indigenous population, its going to blow sooner or later.”
The big white guy (Fox) begged Bush not to close the border for this very reason; Mexico couldn’t have all those unemployed young men back there. Bush complied, of course.
That’s exactly why Fox and Company are desperate for the US to keep the border open, they fear their heads will be put on pikes.
Somebody should ask Mr. Calderon about the disgrace of his own country that finds it necessary to export its criminals and poverty to the US where they proceed to kill by way of DUI and rape/molest innocent US citizens. This of course is done to prevent any reforms to their own country. If these young men stayed put and agitated for change, that would threaten the status quot of the corrupt class in Mexico City.
Mexico is a failed state and should be treated as such. The shame lies with them.
Obviously (she said holding her nose and diving in) Calderon is a liar. We all know that no one is deported. All illegals are inTexas where they feast, live high on the hog, with Rick Perry teaching their college classes for free,
Illegal immigration preserves TWO rotten political systems:
1. In Mexico, it removes those who abject to the status quo the most.
2. In America, it boosts profits by permitting for cost savings, where costly innovation would instead have been required.
“Thats exactly why Fox and Company are desperate for the US to keep the border open, they fear their heads will be put on pikes.”
I thought he made that clear very publicly in one of his visits here; there was no attempt to mask it at all. For an oil-producing country, Mexicans should have a better life than they do; about 20 years ago I remember armed Indians rioting in the south for schools, hospitals, and such (and getting them).
Every election cycle, El Presidente of Mexico starts up with the rhetoric to deflect his own country’s problems and turn it into a U.S. guilt trip.
I think that you forgot the sarcasm tag !
Too freakin’ bad, muchacho.
Wow....talk about the freaking arrogance of this prick
Complaining about the USA sending back his vermin
Their problem. Not ours.
Some are deported just long enough to have dinner with their Mexican relatives and come back.
So he admits that a good percentage of the illegal aliens we deport are criminals, gangbangers, narco-terrorists and troublemakers?
You are so right about the elite class in Mexico. They are working to stifle Mexico’s economy like the Democrats do in our country. This elite class has a corrupt relationship with the government in what we call crony capitalism. They manipulate the government to keep the competition down. What they do is eliminate the small businessman from gaining economic success and increasing the wealth to the rest of their poor society.
According to professor Denise Eugenia Dresser Guerra, Mexico is a crony capitalism economy which fails to grow due to the manner in which it exercises and shares power. This is due to the discretionary and politicized regulations that rule the mafia republic, the economy of buddies. She says that Mexico is trapped in an intricate web of privilege and veto powers that inhibit healthy competition. A network that operates on favors, concessions and regulatory protection provided by the government and demanded by the business elite as a condition for investment.
Mexicos economy will never reach its full potential as long as its political system functions well for the benefit of the political parties, but very poorly for its citizens. The professor believes that Mexicans are victims of a dysfunctional economic system which forces its population to cross the border into the United States in search of the upward mobility that is not found in Mexico.
I write about this as a warning to this nation as to what crony capitalism can do to us. It is exactly what the Obama Regime is instigating and it is a very dangerous venture for our economic system.
Yeah better to have them committing violent acts over here, right? Screw you, Calderon!!!
How much more of this can we be expected to take?!?!
If I was President, the first think I’d tell the Mexican President is “Fix your country, or else we’ll fix it for you.”
Why do we pump billions of dollars every year into this craphole of a nation again? Anyone?
Oh yeah it is, because thanks to Obama they are being armed and then sent back where they stroll back across the border.
A lot of these people are being caught in California and then Obama buses them to Texas to be released. We are out gunned, out manned and out spent on the border and the US Government has not given a damn since Patton was here fighting Pancho Villa. People want to blame Perry for this because he is left to clean it up, but that is BS. We got 1.1 to 1.2 million illegals in our state and we can't do anything about it. We can't throw them out, Feds wont let us, we have to feed them, we have to provide them medical care and we have to educate them or we will be in violation of US Law. And the only thing the President is doing is sending the worst of them to our border and then arming them with weapons that can out gun our cops and border agents.
The only way to secure the border is to restore order to Mexico. Perry already told us that's his plan when he became the head of the RGA. He intends to send in the military to kill the Narco-Terrorist and the corrupt Mexican Military while arming the border with the National Guard and more border agents. He intends to add strategic fencing and UAVs and electronic monitoring with the man power to respond and capture incursions with permission to return fire.
Unfortunately for Perry is he said something stupid in one debate, that he apologized for, and people are too offended to actually research his real record. And because he correctly says trying to fence the entire border is stupid. Anyone who says you can has never looked at a map let alone been to the Texas Border otherwise they would have noticed a big river there.
