Mexicans routinely sneak across the border and to kidnap white American children, primarily young girls. Age hardly matters.

Mexicans enslave these children.
They use them for sex and sell them for sex.

Often they 'harvest' organs from these children,
utilizing crude methods.
They resort to kitchen utensils and garden tools!

American demmocRATS, especially the politicians, are looking the other way on this issue because they don't wish to offend ANY Mexican.
After all, minorities and their conduct are deemed to be politically correct.
In essence, democRAT politicians condone this criminal behavior.

Only if the perpetrator is white, then the democRATS jump on it.

I live in Chihuahua Mexico. The begging by children of Tarahumara Indians for money is a business Here. You can see the mother sitting in the middle of the street. Many pregnant with one in the oven. While their very young children are dodging traffic, juggling and begging for money. This is the only thing they do in life on a daily basis. They are bringing up a culture of young Tarahumara's that will do the same. This is the trade they will learn. They do not go to school because the parents are needing them to make money to pay for food and shelter and the new worker on the way.

To me this is exploitation of children. These people should not be allowed to have children that are brought into this kind of suffering. It is not as if it was an accident. It is planned in many instances. Many not because of lack of education.

This is just a commentary as to what I see on the streets here everyday. I dread pulling up to the intersections everyday because the beggars here in Mexico other then the Tarahumaras can get quite obnoxious and insistent. Being from the USA it effects my heart and psyche and it does not bring a smile to your face. The people here have gotten so used to it that it really does not register much to them from the comments I have heard.

I need to continue on with my day here in Mexico, and every street corner here with the young children and young teens begging does not make it easy to enjoy it.

I guess I need to learn to be more like the Mexican people. Just hit the junk email button in my brain so I do not to see acknowledge it.

At least someone saw something that looked out of place and said something. It took someone with concern to question it in the first place, and not look the other way as society has in Mexico. Someone was paying attention and was concerned.

By the way in I do not mean all Mexican people, but society in general. It begging works because there are giving people here in Mexico that feel for these children. It is the parents that should know better then to keep bringing children into this life, which in reality is not a life at all. I as an adult would want better for my children and would not put their lives at risk in the streets. Totally different society here. This could not happen in the USA because of the laws that protect children. It should not happen anywhere in the world. But it does. Education is the key.

Besides saying how you can't enjoy your day, how you dread pulling up to the intersections everyday because the beggars there in Mexico OTHER then the Tarahumaras can get quite obnoxious and insistent. and how being from the "usa" (Where people are so loving, caring and there is no begging, poverty, ignorance, homelessness and no one has more than two children) it effects your heart and psyche.

mexicans are racist. there was an 'uproar' over this girl because she was blonde with green eyes. but there are plenty of children in mexico who are beggars, and plenty of kidnapping and trafficking, and mexicans don't even care.

so if a mexican in the us gets pulled over for breaking the law, that's "racist", but if mexicans abandon all of their mestizo children to begging or worse, that is not "racist" ?

mexicans are the biggest racists! don't go pointing fingers at others, you racists!

Where do you live? They would be reported immediately and the children probably taken away. They get reported if their kids are not attending school.

I do not need to fix what I say. I live here in Mexico. Not Chicago! What so you know? People in the USA report crap like this. Here in Mexico it is a way of life. It is the truth. Cannot stand the truth?

You forget. This is the Mexico forum. I am here in Mexico because my Wife is Mexican. I have a business here. When you go to the Home-Depot and someone was just shot in the parking lot. Then everyone ducks from the shots. Then the people just enter and go about their business of shopping you will understand where I am coming from. Then they just walk around the crime scene to their cars like it is part of everyday life, maybe you will understand. America is different in that way and that is why someone reacted when no one else would.

We were on our way to Aldama the other day to take our son to school. There was a guy laying propped up against a telephone pole on the side of the road and he really looked dead. He was bloody and a mess. My wife said she felt sure was dead. It was rush hour. People were driving by and no one was stopping. They did not even touch their breaks. Cars had been going by for at least an hour. There had to have been a bunch of vialidad and police pass him as they are everywhere. I wanted to return and she got mad and said do not worry, this is Mexico. I knew what she meant because that is what everyone says here when things are not right or they do not want to get involved. Not getting involved is the key word. They do not care!

Obama had 4 years to change the country for the better.

Seriously, can anyone name one good thing this guy's done for America?

I need not explain how he and his corrupt guttertrash Chicago mafia handlers have made everything worse. Simply look around with your own lying eyes for proof.

We need real jobs, not McWalmart jobs.

We also don't need the Obama Administration continuing on it's current path to oblivion without having to worry about re-election. This would be dangerous to our constitution's survival and our pocketbooks.

Romney is owned by the same international bankers as Obama destroying America from overseas.

However by hittig the reset button on the corrupt, power crazed, Obama administration it gives more Americans time to wake up to what is presently happening to America.

In some aspects Obama is right when he says ((("you didn't build/create that, government did.")))

Let's look at what this administration has created in 4 short years and imagine what he can do with 8:

-Socialist eugenics based health care (((Obamacare)))

-NDAA (((National Defense Authorization Act))) where Americans can now be disappeared without a jury

-Out of control (((Crony Capitalism))) where government picks winners and losers based on payouts -not the free market eg. Solyndra, GM, MF Global, Numerous Bank Bailouts, No Prosecution of criminal Banksters

-(((Skyrocketing Unemployment and Outsourcing)))-The idea that welfare checks/EBT cards are paychecks

-(((Fast and Furious))) and other suspected domestic false flags to argue for abolishing the 2nd ammendmant

- Massive (((TSA expansion))) onto America's streets and armed (((survellance drones/now blimps))) operating over US territory.

-(((UN control of U.S. military troops to invade))) Egypt, Syria, parts of Africa, etc. for offshore bankers aka Nazism

-(((Trickle Down Government))) The idea that nothing can be built without (((more government bureaucrats and global warming regulations/taxes))) getting in the way

-(((Throwing Israel -an important ally- under the bus))) by destabalizing all the county's around it but not offering them any assurances of protection

- A (((continuation of Bush's failed policies))), like not getting out of Iraq, Afghanastan, and no closing of Guantanamo torture camps

-(((Polaraized race relations))) eg. Disrespectful hadling of the Treyvon Martin family after his murder -opportunistic my son would have looked like Treyvon soundbite- and media staged racial infighting between Americans setting up for social conflict right before the 2012 election

-(((No Proof Obama supposedly got Osama)))) America was never really allowed to see the body/proof ; -)

-(((Defunding of NASA))) No exploration of the stars for the U.S., leave that to countries that are exceptional

-(((No Plan/ or Budget to Fix Anything going forward if he is re-elected )))-always says what you want to hear, then does the exact opposite hoping you''ll forget by the next speech -(((Sociopathic Liar)))

-(((Obamaphone)))-Massive expansion of this program for his dependant voting base

-(((Unlimited QE3 leading to hyperinflation/ monopoly money))) Dollar is rapidly losing purchasing power resulting in skyrocketing food and GAS PRICES (especially for "green gas" in CA)

-(((Needed a tainted Creepy Crawley moderator to hold his hand during the 2nd debate))) who helped him dodge hard questions he couldn't answer -(((weak affirmative action President)))

-(((Benghazi Gate)))???

- My favorite (((Legalizing the illegals))) temporarily until the election is over but not offering immigration reform

- The list goes on.

Is this change you can believe in? Is this what you really want another 4 years of?

As Donald Trump would say: Obama you're fired:



Too bad Ron Paul chickened out.

Unfortunately the Mexican government does not care about these people. They never have and never will. BUT, if the international spotlight was put on the Tarahumara people, you can bet the Mexican government would step up to "help" the Tarahumara. The corrupt government of Mexico only cares about one thing, MONEY/DINERO. If they can exploit their own people for profit it will be done. Drugs, corruption prostitution murder are a way of life for the Mexican people. Until a regular Mexicqan citizen in Mexico stands up and grows a set will this change. Can we say REVOLUTION? Probably not because the US wouldn't allow it so close to home.

A revolution is what is needed. But the people are so poor they cannot afford guns, and they would be locked up in jail for having them. The government has the people by the short hairs. The government is robbing the good people every chance they can, and the criminals are on the other end doing the same. The people are caught in the cross hairs. You wonder why people are trying to escape to the USA?

Mexico has a tough time moving forward. Because if you are intelligent and make money you are a target for kidnapping and extortion. They will kill you and/or burn down your business if you do not comply. My neighbor just got a call to her home 4 days ago. She is a retired school teacher and owns a home. She lives modest but would be considered well off in Mexico. They told her she needed to deposit money in a bank account or they would kill her and her family. They gave her the account number.

She had it traced back and guess what? It came from a prison. So in this case how do prisoners get numbers to call and the access to the prison phone to make these calls. It is the criminals and the government employed prison employees that are facilitating the criminals. They are getting a cut too. So in many cases as if we did not know already. The government and the criminals are one and the same. this exact thing is happening to many people here in Mexico.

Problem is if an important person in Mexico gets very rich and is more or less caught. It seems to be standard procedure to nothing to these people. They get rich off their crimes and they get away with it because no one will prosecute people in government.

They show men in Government that were not that wealthy when they took office, and a year later they are millionaires. Many with extreme wealth. But they do not need to show where they got the money. The reason is because the people that would prosecute them in government are doing the same.

If you try to start something in Mexico against the government and corruption they take you off the streets, torture you and kill you. It has been happening a lot here. Activists disappear very quickly and some are found dead later and the others not found at all. They literally take them into custody and then kill them for speaking out against the government.

Even reporters that report against the government are tortured and killed.

So who wants to start to organize and start this revolution?

The Mexican government is put in the spotlight a bunch. But they do nothing. I wish what you said would happen truly would, but it will not.

By the way, good post! Glad to see you have a heart and care about other people that are not just Americans.

Look at Venezuela and its dictatorship. Mexico is almost the same because they hold the people down and take from them with force and intimidation. They just do things a little differently so they can take advantage of the free market. You need to stay below the radar here anyway you can, so as not to be noticed. Which is hard to do if you own a retail business.

Yes I know this is off topic. But it all seems to lead to other problems as sometimes they interconnect.
