Villegas v. Mukasey (9th Cir. - April 23, 2008)

Mental institutions in Mexico may not constitute deliberate "torture" sufficient to justify withholding of deportation. But, at least currently, they're really horrible. So sayeth Judge Hall.

I did not realize that Mexican mental institutions are/were as bad as they are/were. But Judge Hall recounts a story that's quite persuasive.

Yet another reason not to go crazy in Mexico.
