Human Rights in Mexico

NPR's Phillip Davis reports on Mexico's human rights record. It's on review this week as Mary Robinson, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, visits with Mexican officials. The southern state of Chiapas has an especially bad record, but human rights abuses are common throughout Mexico. Robinson was invited by the Mexican government, and her visit is being applauded by human rights groups.
