The massacre of seventy two Central and South Americans undocumented immigrants killed in hands of one of the most violent Mexican drug gangs, ‘Los Zetas’ has outraged the Mexican society and the international community. The Mexican Government immediately condemned the atrocious crime and were surprised that illegal immigrants heading to the U.S are also a target for the organized crime; despite that they already had some knowledge that they were being mistreated, sold to traffickers or recruited as hit-men.
