BREITBART.COM - Mexico Halts Border Maps Hand-Out: "Mexico will suspend its plan to distribute maps to migrants wanting to cross the U.S. border illegally, but an official said Thursday the decision was not made because of American pressure.

Miguel Angel Paredes, spokesman for the federal Human Rights Commission, said the government wanted to 'rethink' its plan because human rights officials in border states expressed concern that the maps would show anti-immigrant groups _ like the Minutemen civilian patrols _ where migrants likely would gather.

'This would be practically like telling the Minutemen where the migrants are going to be,' Paredes said. 'We are going to rethink this, so that we wouldn't almost be handing them over to groups that attack migrants.'

On Wednesday, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said the United States opposed the plan 'in the strongest terms.' He said the effort would lead more people to cross the border, 'leading to more migrant deaths and the further enrichment of the criminal human trafficking rings.'

Paredes was asked if the Mexican decision was a response to U.S. pressure.

'No, we are not responding to that,' he said. 'We have not taken that into account.'"
