WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Mexico has not yet met human rights requirements laid down in U.S. law for the release of millions of dollars in U.S. anti-narcotics aid, a Democratic senator said on Wednesday.
Senator Patrick Leahy said in a statement that it would be premature for the U.S. government to issue a report affirming Mexico is respecting human rights in its war against drug traffickers.
The editorial bias in that headline is disgraceful. The article shows that Sen. Leahy has simply called for honest enforcement of the law, as he is sworn to do, and you try to make him sound like some troublemaker harming the country. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
