I have no plans on traveling to that craphole. I never did like Mexico anways. There’s other welcoming countries in Europe and Africa I’d rather go to.

When I think of Mexico, thoughts of rampant drug proliferation with turf wars, misguided and corrupt border patrol agents and violent random stranger killings come to mind, not sexual abuse issues.

“…As a strategy to prevent…”

I guess they have not seen data that says otherwise? Wonder how much of the money to do this is coming from Foreign Aid and behind closed door agreements?

Well, at least it isn’t for a lifetime apparently, nor is it at the national level. We’ll see in a few years if the Mexicans are satisfied with the results. My gut tells me that the evangelical faction of AMLO’s movement might be behind this.

Was Mr. Smith in Mexico recently?

Coming from a country that does nothing about prostitution. Where more women under 18 yrs have children than anywhere else in the Americas. Where women are sexualized in almost every aspect of social life, media, and art. this is hypocrisy at it’s worst. Even with all that, their proposal still makes more sense than the U.S.’s registry.
