U.S. Withholding Aid To Mexico Over Human-Rights Abuses

U.S. Withholding Aid To Mexico Over Human-Rights Abuses

The Obama administration is withholding $26 million in aid to Mexico, recommending that the government give more power to its human rights commission and crack down on abusive soldiers.
In a report released Friday, the State Department said the Mexican government, which is mired in a violent battle with powerful drug cartels, has met human rights requirements to receive $36 million in previously withheld funds that are part of a $1.4 billion Merida Initiative.

Paybacks a bitch !
