Immigration Pamphlet Under Fire

The Mexican government has issued a pamphlet that offers advice to illegal migrants who cross the border into the U.S. The guide offers advice such as “Crossing the river can be very dangerous, particularly if you are alone or do it at night” or “If you wear heavy clothes, they will become heavier when wet and this will make it more difficult for you to swim.” But the pamphlet has come under fire from U.S. groups, who say it encourages illegal immigration. As if the existence of a guide is what’s going to stop people from trying to make better lives for themselves.
