No, Really? Seriously?!?

"She criticized the media's portrait of Mexico as nothing more than a society of illegal migration, drugs and violence, and she said her fellow citizens found it amazing that Mexican asylum seekers in Canada were claiming their government couldn't protect them from the drug wars and corrupt and abusive security forces."
I know that as a politician she is required to paint a somewhat skewed picture of her nation but seriously, Mexico is currently embroiled in an all out Drug war with more than 8,463 dead and counting. Hell, the war even has its own Wiki page.

"In five minutes, without shooting a bullet, a 20-man armed commando unit burst into a prison in the Mexican state of Zacatecas and freed 53 prisoners – all of them connected with the Gulf Cartel. The lightning speed of the operation and the crisp Federal Police uniforms worn by the gunmen was the work of the Zetas, the Gulf Cartel’s armed wing."
With all due respect to Senator Rosario Green Macias, her humiliation is a direct result of her own country's inability to stem both the flow of drugs and the flow of people away from the violence and the drugs.

Senator, don't look at Canada and claim that relations will get better with a new Prime Minister, look to Mexico and fix the problems there.
