Mexicans fear US border control will lead to human rights violations
at 2:32 PM ET

[JURIST] The Mexican
[official website] is concerned that Texas Gov. Rick Perry's
"Operation Linebacker," a pledge of $9.7 million to beef up security along the US-Mexico border, will lead to human rights violations. In a statement released
late Wednesday, Mexican officials said that their government remains committed
to combating crime on both sides of the border, but fears that militarizing the
border will lead to violations of humanitarian law [ICRC backgrounder]. Perry's "Operation Linebacker" [overview; press release] will provide the Texas Border Sheriff's Coalition with $3 million to hire additional deputies, $3 million for overtime pay and $3.7 million for other initiatives. Mexico also called for the US to establish new mechanisms that would allow legal migration that respects human rights."
