Sen. Zazue's blind spot

Mexico Senate Takes Up Migrant's Cause[link]

A committee of the Mexican Senate wants Presidente Calderón to send a note of protest to the U.S. over the deportation of Elvira Arellano.

"We cannot remain quiet in view of this injustice and must ask for firm action from our authorities," Mexican Sen. Humberto Zazue said.


Arellano was in the country illegally. Where is the injustice?

Your emphasis is misplaced, Senator Zazue. Rather than asking el Presidente to protest the actions of the U.S., why don't you do the right thing and protest the conditions that caused Arellano and her countrymen to migrate out of your country in the first place.
