Southern Mexico - The latest initiative by Mexican immigration agents in Villahermosa, Tabasco, Mexico to stop and check for legal documents from suspected undocumented immigrants and unaccompanied children from Central America attempting to board buses at the Ado Bus Central Station. 
Ruben Figueroa, a immigration rights activists in Mexico posted a photo on his Facebook account depicting Mexican federal immigration agents checking for legal visas from suspected undocumented Central Americans attempting to board bus into the interior of Mexico.
The Mexican government deployed hundreds of Federal Police, Immigration agents, military and marines to stop the illegal crossings by Salvadoran, Honduran, Nicaraguan and Guatemalan children into Mexico from the Guatemala border.
The Mexican government has launched a Southern border crackdown of illegal crossings into Mexico and are deporting those found not to have the proper visas to be in the country. It is now prohibited for undocumented immigrants to ride in La Bestia (Beast) freight train for their protection, also known at the train of death.
Gangs and drug cartels extort thousands of immigrants and collect at least $300 dollars from each one to ride the freight train between Chiapas, Tabasco, Veracruz and Tamaulipas on their to the U.S. border. Immigrants are raped, thrown off the train and killed, if they don't pay a quota.
The Mexican government immigration operation has actually affected and began to cut into the multimillion profit making by criminal organizations, gangs, corrupt police, immigration agents and government local, state and federal public elected officials, including government judicial and bureaucracy workers in the area.
