West Texas town bolsters security as Mexican deaths continue

West Texas town bolsters security as Mexican deaths continue

FORT HANCOCK – They can’t keep burying the bodies here. Not just because the small cemetery in this remote desert town can’t handle the volume – because somebody could get killed.

On a still, sunny spring morning in Fort Hancock, about 60 miles east of El Paso, two elderly Hispanic men sit on the tailgate of a pickup, surrounded by graves.

Francisco Estrada and Alberto Rosales munch on pieces of fruit, legs dangling above the dusty earth where many former residents of this rural outpost make their final repose. As caretakers for the Fort Hancock Cemetery, they put in about 20 hours a week. It’s mostly quiet work, meant to occupy their aging minds and bodies.

This spring, though, as the drug war enveloped Fort Hancock’s Mexican sister city, El Porvenir, their stress levels spiked. “What they’re starting over there, they’re going to finish here,” Estrada frets.

West Texas town bolsters security as Mexican deaths continue

I learned a long time ago, you’d better listen to these OLD men, they didn’t get to be that old by being stupid!

I hope you’ll take the time to read the full story that this post is based on. It gives a lot of good information about what the Mexicans are facing and what the people, and the Sheriff of Ft. Hancock are facing. It is an ugly story.

Estrada and Rosales point to white and yellow silk flowers that adorn one of the most recent additions to the cemetery: the resting place of Manuel Morales Lerma, who was shot at his home in El Porvenir. Fearing cartel leaders would next target his family, Morales Lerma’s relatives moved his funeral to Fort Hancock’s tiny cemetery.

I have said, many times, I detest, and have no sympathy for the ILLEGALS that are invading this nation. I still detest the ILLEGAL part. But I can’t help but have at least some sympathy for the innocent victims in Mexico, and there truly are some innocent victims.

They are the victims of a corrupt government, a corrupt federal police force, a corrupt military and a deadly mix of drug cartels that have no regard for human life.

I truly hate what the huge influx of ILLEGALS is doing, and has done to America, but I can see why a hard working and hopefully honest family would come here to escape the corruption and violence of Mexico.

Sadly, they bring with them, much of that crime, violence and corruption.

People here describe the ceremony like a scene out of a spaghetti western. Sheriffs’ deputies from all around came to stand guard. Some mourners hid in the bushes with guns, says Hudspeth County Judge Becky Dean Walker.

It’s not just in remote parts of far west Texas. Texans are faced with dangers from ILLEGALS every day, all over Texas. We carry guns to protect ourselves and our families. I remember a time in Texas when you carried a gun if you were out in the field, in case you ran across a snake. Now, you need heavy weapons if you are out in the country, you never know what kind of drug or invasion operation you’ll run into.

It’s an astonishing death rate. If the pace of killings continues this year, the murder rate could reach 1,600 homicides for every 100,000 people (in New Orleans, the 2009 murder rate was 52 per 100,000, the highest in the nation, according to FBI data).

Cartel leaders have told entire towns to vacate or be decimated. They’ve burned homes and churches and left in their wake residents paralyzed with fear. The aftershocks extend far from the epicenter of the violence, bringing fear and confusion – along with legions of armed guards, and refugees from the bloodbath – to Fort Hancock and other rural Texas border outposts.

So, Texans prepare to protect themselves. It seems that the U.S. government isn’t going to do too much other than talk. The Obama administration loves to talk. And LIE!

CNSNews.com – When making the case for the Obama administration’s legal challenge to Arizona’s new law against illegal immigration, White House senior adviser David Axelrod said “no administration has been tougherâ€? on immigration enforcement than the Obama administration. SOURCE

David Axelrod is a MORON. An Obamabot MORON. The Obama administration has done very little, if anything, in regards to immigration enforcement or border security. Sending a few hundred unarmed National Guard troops to protect the border is nothing more than a token effort, and a terribly pathetic token at that.

So, we watch, and wait, hoping that the federal government will step in and effectively protect the borders and citizens of this nation. We watch, and wait, hoping our Governor remembers where he placed his manhood and decides to come back to his senses and be a Texan, and an American, and not an appeasement artist pandering Hispanics for their vote.

We watch, and wait. And hope, and pray…

    It’s rapidly heading North.

    Heading?

    It’s here, and no one cares.

    Woe be to the first Texan or American who defends themselves with deadly force against an illegal invader. The federal government has clearly shown it will step in for prosecution. I’m sorry, I didn’t explain with sufficient clarity: woe be to any WHITE American who defends themselves using deadly force against an illegal invader.

    People had better pay attention, this is NOT a game, it’s not a rumor, we are at WAR along the U.S. border with Mexico and the invasion is a hard reality!

    In terms of an IMMEDIATE and PHYSICAL threat to the United States, I deem it to be MEXICO.

    Islam is a threat, yes; its tendrils are insidious and pernicious. But MEXICO is the largest present threat to our sovereignty, independence and, to a degree, budgetary solvency.

    People simply do NOT understand: do NOTHING and ALL that is Mexico will soon be endemic in THIS nation; its corruption, its death, its violence, its emotional base, its cheapness of life and two-facedness.

    And that’s just from without; an equally if not greater threat lies WITHIN. . .in DC.

    For those that don’t think they are this far north….check out the latest news on the law finding over 30,000 marijuana plants being grown in Ellis County ( south of Dallas ) by the Mexican drug cartel.
    Now that’s just what they have found right now….I bet as they do some more aerial searches they will find more.

    Listening to Mexico’s President Numbnuts chew on us before our pansy Congress told me all I needed to know.

    Fred this piece needs to go viral. It is a warning to all sensible people who will open their ears and listen and view the FACTS! I wonder about what BZ says about “woe be to a white man using deadly force in his own defense”… I’m sure our communist InJustice Department under that weak excuse for a man, Holder, would be johnny on the spot to take action against American’s defending themselves.
