All Things Considered...

Police shot and killed a man in an illegal immigration raid. The victim, Robert Lugo, was a construction worker whose dark skin and work clothes led the police to suspect that he was an illegal immigrant. The police regularly conduct raids in that particular town, and often abuse the illegals before releasing them without charges, local residents reported to the Associated Press.

Carlos Lopez, 28, an illegal immigrant is quoted as saying: "If you're carrying any money, they take it from you; federal, local police, all of them." Jose Ramos, 18, also an illegal, agreed, stating, "If you're on a bus, they pull you off and search your pockets and if you have any money, they keep it and say 'Get out of here.'"

Outrageous, isn’t it?

But the incident is true. It was reported by WorldNetDaily. Robert Lugo was mistaken as a Central American. The police who shot and killed him are the Mexican police. He was shot in the Mexican town of Tultitlan, which is located on the outskirts of Mexico City.

The story also reported that the United Nations human rights commissioner said recently that Mexico "is one of the countries where illegal immigrants are highly vulnerable to human rights violations and become victims of degrading sexual exploitation and slavery-like practices, and are denied access to education and health care."

Larry Elder of WorldNetDaily said that Mexico militarized its border and deported 203,128 illegal immigrants in 2004.

Gee, maybe the United States should ask Mexico for advice on militarizing our border and deportation of illegals.

Just a thought.
