Migrants on the move in Mexico


Every year, tens of thousands of women, men and children travel through Mexico without legal permission as irregular migrants. More than nine in every 10 are Central Americans, mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras or Nicaragua. The vast majority are headed for the US border in the hope of a new life far from the poverty they have left behind. Their journey is one of the most dangerous in the world.

Invisible Victims: Migrants on the Move in Mexico highlights the dangerous journey that these irregular migrants make and how Amnesty International would like the Mexican government to act.


  1. @ChrisDaron By "enforced its laws" I mean completely restricting jobs from illegals. No jobs means no money. No money means no reason to come "for a better life". Oh, and by "secured the borders", I mean using the CA, AZ, NM, and TX National Guard for their intended purpose and empowering them to secure the border as necessary. In the big picture, "millions" is an incomprehensibly small amount of money, considering illegals cost CA alone over $20 bil/year, and $113b/y total throughout the US.

  2. Amnesty international, why don't you make a documentary about the atrocities commited by the US in every country its military has set foot on?
    Oh, I guess that would not be convenient, you might lose some funding or worse…

  3. Exactly right. Enforce our laws here would save lives there. Also not giving aid to Illegals. Like free food and housing. Totally insane. Giving tax money to invaders is just insane. I don't care that they come here because life is poor there. The solution is not to help people come here illegally. The solution is to enforce our laws.
