Even Mexico has its liberals blaming the honest for the fate of the
dishonest in this case would be illegals jumping on a train going north
who are being preyed upon by their fellow illegals and other scumbags.

In 2005, Kansas City Southern (KSC) purchased Mexican Railroad TFM, S.A.
de C.V.. The purchase, which included all of the common stock held by
the parent company, was done to create a NAFTA railroad. NAFTA or the
North American Free Trade Agreement was a trade agreement signed by the
US, Canada and Mexico to form a trilateral trade bloc designed to boost
trade and the economy of the three North American countries.

KCS planned on using the railroad to link to the Mexican city of Lazaro
Cardenas with the US. Lazaro Cardenas is a deep port city on the
southern Pacific coast. Using the Mexican port to import products from
China, KCS could bypass the expensive costs of using the ports in Los
Angeles and Long Beach.

These days, the KCSM (Kansas City Southern de Mexico) railroad still
runs from southern Mexico to the US border and is transporting MORE than
just trade goods. The train has become a major mode of transportation
for thousands of illegals from Central and South America, including
unaccompanied children.

But the train ride north has become a dangerous ride for many. Illegals
are being robbed, beaten and murdered on the train. The ride has become
so notoriously dangerous that it has been nicknamed the Death Train or
La Bestia (The Beast).

In response to the dangers presented by the Death Train has prompted
the attorney general of the Mexican state of Veracruz to file CRIMINAL
complaints with federal prosecutors against KCS and Ferrosur, the
Mexican railway operating the train through central Mexico. The charges
include robbery, human trafficking, kidnapping, murder and extortion.

Last month a report issued by the Washington Office of Latin America (a
non-governmental group that works for the civil rights of immigrants,
legal and illegal, described the Death Train rise, saying:

        “Migrants in the southern border zone are drawn to ‘La Bestia,’
        the train that heads northward to central Mexico and then on to
        the U.S. border. For hundreds of miles they ride on the roofs of
        the train cars trying to avoid fatal falls, hot days, frigid
        nights, and low-clearance tunnels. Every eight to ten days or
        so, trains depart from two routes that originate near the
        southern border.”
        “The stunning frequency of kidnapping, extortion, human
        trafficking, rape, and homicide puts Central American migrants’
        plight in Mexico atop the list of the Western Hemisphere’s worst
        humanitarian emergencies.”

Is it really any surprise that an American based company is providing a
major mode of transportation for thousands of Central and Southern
American illegals? After all, it’s an America president that was openly
inviting them here with the promise of amnesty, so why shouldn’t an
American railroad help bring them to our border?

What I want to know is why hasn’t KCSM taken steps to keep the illegals
from hopping on board their trains? It shouldn’t be that hard to place
several armed guards on the trains to keep people from boarding and to
chase off those that have. Once they start doing that, word will get out
to avoid the Death Train and that should help reduce the number of
illegals pouring into our country. We need to start a writing campaign
demanding that KCS take measures to keep illegals off their Mexican
trains. Perhaps if they get flooded with emails, letters and phone calls
they just might take action.
