|Statement by Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff on the Mexican Human Rights Commissionís Decision to Provide Maps to Potential Migrants
For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
January 25, 2006
We oppose in the strongest terms the publication of maps to aid those who wish to enter the United States illegally. It is a bad idea to encourage migrants to undertake this highly dangerous and ultimately futile effort. This effort will entice more people to cross, leading to more migrant deaths and the further enrichment of the criminal human trafficking rings that prey on the suffering of others.
