Violent Mexican Drug Thugs Expand Into U.S.

A renegade band of Mexican military deserters, offering $50,000 bounties for the assassination of U.S. law-enforcement officers, has expanded its base of operations into the United States to protect loads of cocaine and marijuana being brought into America by Mexican smugglers, authorities said (full article).

Known as "Zetas", they are Mexican Army deserters who were trained in commando operations in the U.S. These low-life are violent, vicious killers. Across the border from Laredo, Texas, in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, a city of 300,000, they are in a battle with police & opposing gangs. 100 people have been killed there since January. The new police chief was killed on his first day. His replacement was wounded on his first day. The violence is spilling over into the USA with killings in Dallas & other cities. Assaults on U.S. Border Patrol Agents have increased dramatically.

The Border patrol is woefully undermanned. There are few to cover 1,800 miles of the southern border. Congress recently voted down additional agents. The President & Congress are doing nothing but talk about the need for greater border control. Homeland Security is doing a great job preventing Granny from getting on a plane with nailclippers, but they are a complete failure in protecting our southern border. The southern border is wide open not only to illegal Mexican immigrants, but to drug cartels, violent gangs, criminals, perverts, illegal border crossers from Europe, the mid-East & Asia & to potential terrorists. Americans are already dying daily because of the pedophiles, rapists & other criminals that cross the border unchecked. How many more are the President & Congress willing to sacrifice for their nonfeasance?

It is appalling how unprotected we are along this border, despite billions being poured into Homeland Security. It is way beyond time to stop the meaningless talk from Washington & do something about it, even if it requires the National Guard along the border.

And yet, I heard on the radio today, that US border control agents arrest 34,000+ illegals a month.

The scary part is that is a mere fraction of the illegals who get past the agents.

It boggles the mind. It almost seems that Mexico would soon be out of Mexicans at that rate.

What is scarier is that the arrested illegals are given a court date to appear in court, then they are released into the country. 98% of them do not appear on the court date. Gee, ya think? They are out there somewhere in our country. The illegals call the court date papers their "permiso", meaning it is de facto permission to stay in this country. In fact, some illegals are brazen enuf to surrender to Border Agents intentionally so they can get their "permiso" paper & then be released. Congress & Bush are jokes & are betraying Americans.
