Mexico complains about human smuggling

Mexico’s attorney general complains about smuggling of Cubans through Mexican territory, blaming Cuban Americans who finance it, Mexicans who collaborate, and the U.S. policy that makes it feasible by admitting virtually all Cubans who present themselves at the border. This AP story cites a U.S. statistic: nearly nine of ten Cubans who enter the United States without visas cross a land border rather than coming by sea.

Maybe Mexico really is now committed to take on the criminal gangs and smugglers that control much of the country? I thinmk you can say Cuba-Mexico relations are back full on with this.
