About Secret History

Commentary on Latin America.
Mostly about Mexico - but not always.
Designed to encourage readers to learn about
the apparently "secret history" of 500 million people
spread across two continents

You can always count on a little snark.

But This Isn't New....

A reminder that random searches without cause and process have been legal in the US for some time. The Patriot Act has allowed check points within 100 miles of the US Border in what the ACLU has dubbed the "Constitution free zone" - a zone in which most Americans live.

This video was posted in February. The man is a preacher that was beaten at the checkpoint several months earlier.
