    From your own goddamn link:

    "Primary education in Mexico was henceforth to be secular, free of fees and tuition, and obligatory."

    "Education in Mexico is currently regulated by the Secretariat of Public Education(Spanish: Secretaría de Educación Pública) (SEP). ... The terms "High School" usually corresponds to preparatoria or bachillerato, and follow "secundaria" comprising grades 10-12, when the student's age is 15 to 18 years old. Students may choose between two main kinds of high school programs: The SEP incorporated, and a University Incorporated one, depending on the state. Other minority of programs are available only for private schools, such as the International Baccalaureate which carries a completely different system. "

    :facepalm: No, you fucking idiot, they have a progressive income tax. 1.92% is the bottom tax rate, with around 35% being the upper tax rate. Jesus Christ your reading comprehension sucks.


    NO IT DOESN'T. It isn't that much lower that the US's top federal tax rate of 39%. And it's ahead of other countries such as Venezuela, Peru, Panama, and Jamaica, to name just a few.


    It is a progressive tax system!!!

    It's amazing Dinner is drunk at 5 in the morning on a Wednesday. I guess anything to avoid reality, eh?

    How does deporting someone equate to being killed? What percentage of our deportees wind up murdered? If deportation equals death, then you're for banning deportation, right?

    I for one am shocked, SHOCKED, to discover that you don't give a shit that illegal aliens kill your fellow American citizens and that you don't support a wall to help regulate immigration.

    third paragraph, FFS...
    Deportees may as well have a dollar sign as a target on their backs...

    (1) That still doesn't mean deportees are at any significant risk of being killed. The statistics show of 31,000 in the first half of 2017, exactly one documented murder of a deportee--apparently unconnected with the deportation itself--occurred. Hardly a wanton slaughter.

    (2) Those are internal matters for Mexico's law enforcement.

    (1) there isn't a statistic being presented. it's rather dishonest of you to claim there is only one documented murder when neither of us has bothered to confirm this yet. Besides, the subject is being targeted for kidnapping and (presumably) being threatened with death. again, no numbers are cited, however the implication of deportees beign a preferred/ransomable target would be that it happens more frequently than "once".

    (2)Mexican criminals blackmailing (presumably) American citizens (the deportees remaining relations) strikes me as something that concerns law enforcement on both sides of the border.

    If it's at all commonplace then it should be easy to document.
    Sure, but that's an issue quite apart from deportation, and again requires action on the part of the Mexican authorities.

    we generally do.

    NOt sure if we have "illegals" in the same way the US does. Mostly overstayed visitor visas...
    undocumented arrivals are usually categorized as refugees

    meh-10 seconds on google and you can find more than one story of a dead DACA deportee.

    you trying to avoid seeing a truth behind a shield of barely plausible doubt, again?

    So according to your hypothesis, Canada ought to be on the verge of collapse. It isn't. Where did you go wrong?

    I see a single New Yorker article with the ridiculously hyperbolic headline "Why Deportation is a Death Sentence." If it is, then there should be about 31,000 deaths for deportees in the first half of this year.
    I'm not avoiding anything. The claim was made that the deportation policy is wrong because one DACA deportee was murdered. AGAIN, in a crime apparently completely unconnected to his deportation.

    Crimes in Mexico are Mexico's responsibility. Once our deportees our transported to the control of the Mexican authorities, our responsibilities for them END.

    Remember when Justin duplicated Merkel's mistake by inviting fraudsters in? After Haitians started illegally flooding in to falsely file asylum claims he sure changed his mind quickly though.
