The freight train known as The Beast travels from the southern Mexican town of Arriaga up to Mexico City.
And every day hundreds of migrants, mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras or Nicaragua, sit on top of the notorious train, often for days at a time.
It is also known as the Train Of Death. Riding precariously on top of the moving containers, migrants are often maimed or killed if they fall due to dehydration or fatigue.
Then there is the human threat. These vulnerable travelers have been increasingly targeted by criminal gangs, people smugglers, kidnappers and corrupt officials.
SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO
Rubio’s eye lit up at the sight of voters.
Unfortunately for him they won’t be voting for him, even if they end up in his state.
Train of DEATH TO AMERICA!
We need to slow down this incoming flood.
But the US welfare grab bag make the ordeal well worth it.
The Mexican government and/or the railroad could easily stop that if they had any desire to stop it. It has government approval.
Coming to America via the Obama, McCain, Rubio Express!!
MANY lives would be saved if our borders were secure and these people knew they couldn’t get in! This liberal open border nonsense cares NOTHING about these people.
All aboard the welfare train to America. If you make it you can have a dozen kids, you will get foodstamps, section 8 and keep all the money you make under the table.
the risk is worth it Obama needs them , blah
Had me going there. From the headline I thought this was about Houston’s lame commuter rail that is used to shuttle cleaning crews to downtown office buildings when the trolly cars aren’t running into cars and pedestrians.
How much are we paying Mexico to ignore them?
Onward to a life of easy welfare, food stamps, adulation as highly honored guests, near-immediate citizenship and voting rights, all the while a part of the demographic that will someday rule us (unless the muslims get there first).
Join the reconquista today! Get on the train to Easy Street!
This country is so screwed, it’s beyond imagination.
Them because they come here
America because they come here?
See #17 also.
“Inside the most violent city in the world: Horrific ... photos show ... San Pedro Sula, Honduras “
So, Ciudad Juarez lost it’s top ranking? It held it for several years.
Mexico’s Ciudad Juarez has 3-year streak as most murderous city ...
Found exclusively on: Google
Oct 10, 2012 ... Mexico is officially the most dangerous country in the world with five of ... made Ciudad Juárez the most violent city in the world for the fourth ...
It’s really insane that we worry about Iraq, Syria, etc.
[snips]Its official! Mexico is the most dangerous country in the world with five of its cities named in a top 10 of deadly global murder capitals.
Forty of the 50 most dangerous cities are in Latin America, including 14 in Brazil and a dozen in Mexico.
Two Mexican cities Monterrey and Veracruz made the list for the first time in 2011, while Tijuana, Reynosa and Matamoros dropped out of the top 50.
Ciudad Juarez, Acapulco, Chihuahua, Durango and Torreon also featured high on the list of cities with the worst murder rates, according to a recently released report, based on 2011 statistics, by the Citizen Council for Public Safety and Criminal Justice.
Reminds me when I worked in NYC in the mid 70's.
About November, they were on a pace to break the murder record and all the news outlets carried that "fact".
I swear the competitive nature in people came out as the rate of murder sped up and the record was broken.
WOO WOO !!! We're Number One, We're ......
Better Hunker down NOW!
Looks like scenes from India...
They’re riding The Train of Death to come and get on 0bamaCare? Talk about bitter irony!
I find the assumption they are all immigrants to Mexico from other southern countries odd since it is well reported that Mexico enforces their sovereign rights over the border and deals with immigrants harshly. Why would they not jump on this train unless of course they are complicit in sending losers here along with their losers.
They need to stay in their home countries and learn to create better cultures. That doesn’t mean Communism - which promises all and delivers only for a NEW elite - party members. Really, they can do what was done here a long time ago...
Thanks for the ping, HiJinx. Interesting.
Look for our Dept of Transportation to allot billions to make this a high speed rail route and extend it to California.
