    You mean like passing out booklets on how to enter, work and live in the USA Illegally? Yeah, they do that.

    Why not, serves their interest. It's no worse than the US passing out guns.

    A Mexican Manual for Illegal Migrants Upsets Some in U.S.

    By JAMES C. McKINLEY Jr.

    MEXICO CITY, Jan. 5 - The Mexican government drew fire from American advocates of tighter borders on Wednesday for publishing a pamphlet [below] that instructs migrants how to safely enter the United States illegally and live there without being detected.

    Officials here say the small booklet, illustrated in comic-book style, is not intended to encourage illegal immigration, but to reduce the loss of life. Last year, more than 300 migrants died while crossing rivers and deserts to reach the United States.

    The guidebook also advises would-be migrants to avoid hiring professional immigrant-smugglers and to refuse to carry packages for others. It also instructs people never to lie to border officials, carry false documents or resist arrest.

    Maybe you should read up on the history of Africa. Ever wonder why Somali has guns and tanks? Or Ethiopia? Or Angola? We had this little thing called the "cold war", in which we tossed around guns to insurgents all over the globe - just because it was "within our interest".

    So a handbook on how to gain employment in cleaning my condo... hardly as frightening.

    Yes, that sounds...just so terrible.

    I fail to see why the Mexican government would publish this to encourage undocumented immigration. It doesnt really benefit them and it really isnt their problem.

    Selective reading at it's best.
    But groups favoring stricter immigration controls said the pamphlet amounted to a how-to manual for illegal immigrants. The booklet gives advice on what clothes to wear when fording a river and how to cross a desert without getting dehydrated.

    It also counsels migrants to keep a low profile once in the United States, telling them, for instance, to stay away from loud parties or discos that might be raided by the police and to stay out of domestic disputes, which might lead to an arrest. Finally, it lists what rights migrants have if caught, among them safe transport home, medical care, food and water.

    "This is not the action of a friendly neighbor," said Representative Tom Tancredo, the Colorado Republican who chairs the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus. "What would the Mexican government say if we encouraged our citizens to violate Mexican law?"

    You know America has these same handbooks. We have handbooks on what to expect if you visit every single country without papers, and how to protect yourself, and how to get out. I'm not sure why a nation protecting it's people is wrong. Mexico has no onus towards America.
