    MEXICO CITY – The closure of an American-run railroad in Mexico stranded thousands of U.S.-bound Central American migrants near the Guatemala border and many of them were deported Wednesday by immigration authorities.
    Some camped along rail lines waiting for trains that will never come. Others tried to walk hundreds of miles to the next working rail line and some turned themselves in to Mexican authorities.

    The government sent hundreds of federal police and soldiers Tuesday to clear out the migrants, who for decades have hopped freight cars on the Chiapas-Mayab railway, the Mexican rail link closest to the Guatemalan border. In late July, the Connecticut-based Genesee & Wyoming Inc. withdrew from a 30-year concession to operate the line.

    Gosh I don't even know what to say anymore. Ironic? Hypocrytical? Those words don't seem to do this justice.

    My head hurts.

    Another case of "do as I say, not as I do." They take hypocrisy to a new level.
