Fear grips Mexican border families amid violence

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) - Elodia Ortiz drops her children at school in the morning, picks them up in the afternoon and makes an occasional trip to the supermarket. Anything else, she says, is too dangerous.

Parents in Ciudad Juarez, just across the border from El Paso, Texas, are afraid to venture into the streets amid a turf war between two powerful drug cartels that has left more than 4,500 people dead during the past two years.

Their fears spiked last weekend when hit men attacked two white SUVs leaving a birthday party, killing parents from two U.S. Consulate families in front of their screaming children.

The violence has risen to such levels in Ciudad Juarez that everyone feels at risk in the city of 1.3 million, where innocent people have been increasingly caught in the crossfire. Hit men have gone to wrong addresses or shot indiscriminately into homes, mowing down not only the targeted people but anyone nearby.

Fear grips Mexican border families amid violence

I’ve been taken to task by those that believe themselves to be erudite conservatives.

They attack me for my views on ILLEGALS, their presence in this nation and how I believe they need to be dealt with.

I have made no secret of the fact that I believe our southern border should be manned by the National Guard. I also believe that the National Guard should be fully armed and ready for any combat operation necessary to repel these invaders, by ANY means.

I have been called racist, heartless, cruel, mean, ignorant and red neck. A plethora of names have been tossed and accusations have been made against me and this blog simply because I STILL stand for America 1st and the sovereignty of our borders.

Well, all I can say regarding that is this, if I am stirring up these self described conservatives, if my views on what needs to be done to protect this nation is angering them, then I must be doing something RIGHT! :P

Mothers have driven into daytime shootouts, bending over their children to protect them. Toddlers have been fatally pierced by bullets while playing on the swings at city playgrounds. Waitresses have been slain for having the misfortune of serving marked men.

“We’re shut in our house,” said Ortiz, a mother of five, as she stood outside Vicente Guerrero elementary school, her 7-year-old daughter clinging to her as she shyly eyed other students walking by. “We have to get to school, we have to work. But we’re afraid when we leave.”

These people are being forced to lead miserable lives. I am truly sorry for their plight. I mean that in all sincerity. But I am not so sympathetic to their cause that I want their violence and their lifestyle to spill over into the United States, any more than it already has.

I wish their lives were different. I wish their lives were better, but they are suffering the result of a totally corrupt, socialist government. A government that has left their police and military powerless to do anything to rectify their situation due to massive internal corruption.

Take a very close look at the current situation in Mexico folks. That is us in a very short time if this socialist demagog that goes by the name of Barack Hussein Obama is allowed to continue.

Border security is a joke. It was a joke under Bush 43, Clinton, Bush 41 and every other U.S. president in recent American history. Border security is nothing more than a few Border Patrol agents, out numbered and out gunned, toiling in the night, trying to round up vast numbers of ILLEGALS, not to mention the drug runners and potential terrorists that cross into the USA on a daily basis.

Wasn’t that Virtual Border Fence supposed to be in place and make it unnecessary to place boots on the ground in an effort to stop the invasion?

Janet Napolitano halts funding for virtual border fence

In May 2006, President George W. Bush touted the SBInet project as “the most technologically advanced border security initiative in American history.” The proposed “virtual border fence” along the US-Mexican border was to be a string of towers that would use cameras, radar, and ground sensors to see who was coming across in real time.

Now the project, which spent $2.4 billion between 2005 and 2009, has hit so many snags that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is freezing its funding.

“Not only do we have an obligation to secure our borders, we have a responsibility to do so in the most cost-effective way possible,” wrote DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano in a press release Tuesday. “The system of sensors and cameras along the Southwest border known as SBInet has been plagued with cost overruns and missed deadlines.”

So, the fence isn’t complete, what is there isn’t effective and the invasion continues. You just KNOW that it’s got to be a government project.

In early trials, technical problems and other snafus led to media reports that DHS and the Boeing Co., which held contracts to build two sections of the high-tech fence, might mothball the project.

Problems included software glitches, camera images affected by wind and rain, and radar that had trouble distinguishing sagebrush from camping migrants or animals.

I am going to repeat this again, BOOTS ON THE GROUND!

Fully armed Troops, Bradley Fighting Vehicles, M1A1/M1A2 Abrams Main Battle Tanks, AH-64 Apaches, 240-Bravo machine guns, M-249 Squad Automatic Weapons (SAW), land mines, dogs, Night Vision Glasses (NVGs) and a GREEN LIGHT to shoot anything crossing OUR border at anything other than a LEGAL border crossing!

If that makes me a mean, racist, bog dwelling red neck as a certain faux Conservative idiot in Long Beach has claimed, and as other bleeding heart libbers have claimed, then so be it, I am a racist, heartless, cruel, mean, ignorant red neck and by God I wear those names proudly!

There ya go, a solid admission, now you idiots can stop making veiled comments and accusations, just tell em I said it, I admit it, I really AM all of those things.

The things I do to make life easier for the moonbats among us… :twisted:

    Right on Fred! It’s unfortunate (for them) BUT we need to “take care of our own first!”
    But, it’s not PC and therefore, won’t happen :(

    You are not alone Fred. I got your back and it’ll be a toss up who’s meaner…me, or you, when it comes right down to the nitty gritty. On May 18th, stinkwilly is having his drug buddy calderon to the not so white house to a state dinner so he can complain some more about all the guns that are being sold across the border(and he aint getting his share of money)

    Everybody keeps saying that the Tea Party doesn’t need a leader. THE HELL WE DON’T!!!!! We need somebody we can elect and trust to put a stop to this border drug/murder crap. A president that lives the constitution and people in congress that will follow his lead. Get rid of aclu and acorn and stop the PC shit. The people can give him those followers if he’ll just lead. To hell with what calderon thinks or says, and that goes for the rest of the world. They have a crisis… china, they got lots of money now. We’re busy minding OUR own business.

    I’ll tell y’all one danged thing, Fred has written one a the best posts on this border crap I have ever seen. Anybody don’t like that must be one a them fake right folks, one a them RINO things I read about, because in my REDNECK opinion, they just ain’t any kind of American Conservative if they don’t want to protect America and to hell with the rest of em.

    Ya can’t go to the store here in Texas and not see a bunch a screaming little Mexican kids, and they ain’t speaking English, not even bad English. We gotta draw a line somewhere, maybe Texas does need to tell Washington to piss off and go it alone, I think Ol’ Rick Perry might make a damned good Texas President, and I bet ya he’d sure as hell secure that border then.

    Fred - You are correct in what has to be done to secure the border. But you and I and anyone else with half a brain knows Obama will do nothing. All those illegals are a future voting block. With the violence along the border being what it is( a civil war ); the US should completely shut the border down. Calderon should be told there will be no border crossings until he has complete control and anyone trying to cross will be shot. Illegals in America will be its undoing if left unchecked. Its akin to the barbarians overrunning Rome. Once the border is secure, then all illegals here now should be rounded up and deported. Now, there is one heck of a job creator.

    Vigilante, that’s my only hangup with the TEA Party, you gotta take a stand on the HARD topics and you have to have a LEADER if you’re going to GO somewhere…

    That’s why so many call the TEA Party a rudderless ship…

  6. comment number 6 by: TexasFred

    And speaking of ILLEGALS and the BS that goes with it…

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is backing an immigration bill outline drafted by two senators that says illegal immigrants must admit they broke the law to become citizens.

    Obama backs senators immigration overhaul outline

    So, if I smuggle drugs and admit it, does that mean I can go free?? :?

    No?? Didn’t think so… :P

    Well you may get a certain LBC college professor of bullshit to make a mean post about you…But I must say I’m proud of you, you didn’t say wetback or gook or raghead not once! Good for you Fred…

    The fact is, Immigration is the next front in the war for our nation. Obama has already OK’d the “Blueprint” and I’m betting it has NO border security provisions in it, it will contain amnesty, freebies and more more more…..BUT not one practical solution to stop the flood.

    Health Care is pretty much a done deal now, the hag in the house wouldn’t call for a vote if she didn’t have enough. When this nail hits the board, it should signal marching orders to all AMERICANS that our elected officials are out of touch. When Immigration comes up, Americans should realize it’s a pandering plan to get more hispanics in a big tent for November. You will hear Elect me because I’m working on Immigration…forget about the healthcare bill I just voted for….And sadly many dumbass Americans will.

    Fred, if your views on illegal aliens makes you a racist, then you have a lot of company. Millions of Americans are fed up with illegals crossing our borders, especially our Southern one.

    They bring their crime, drugs, and medical problems with them. They are a drain on our economy to the tune of billions of dollars per year and they’re taking jobs Americans desperately need.

    Their alcohol abuse is causing hundreds of innocent citizens to die needlessly on our highways every year and their gangs are terrorizing our cities.

    We need the National Guard protecting our borders now.

  9. comment number 9 by: BobF

    Also, did anybody get their census form yet? Look at question 8 where it wants to know if you’re Hispanic or have any Hispanic’s living at your residence. Question 8 is the only one that wants to know a particular group of people. Now, question 9 asks race but 8 is just for a particular nationality.

    I’m wondering, what’s the purpose of question 8? Are they looking to set up voting blocks of Hispanics like they did for Blacks in the past, leading to Congressional districts of a mile wide? Are the wanting to create these districts to get more Hispanics elected to congress? Makes me wonder.

  10. comment number 10 by: Vigilante

    To Bob F

    Bob, yes I did get my census form and they are not going to like what they read.
    The first question was, How many live here?
    All the other questions were answered with the abbreviations…..NOYFB.
    If they come knocking on my door, I’ll tell’em to get out and slam the door in their face. If they persist, then they are considered as trespassing and could get shot.

    On Border Security, we seem to always agree! Posted your article on Blogs for Borders Fear grips Mexican border families amid violence

  12. comment number 12 by: Ron Russell

    I understand the so-called virtual border fence has been places on hold due to technical problems-technical problems my ass! The fence was never intended to work, but just a ploy by open border advocates like Lindsay and McCain to placate those favoring real border security. The corruption and ineffectiveness of the Mexican government is taking a toll on everyday Mexicans and those Americans who live and work south of the border. The violence is slowing spreading north and its only a matter of time before a major incident occurs on this side of the border. Shut it down now, before its too late. We know however this will not happen, even if lives are lost north of the border. This is where we are at with our politicians not wanting to offend potential Latino voters living in this country.

    Seal the cussed border with armed troops!

    I am concerned that if the House passes ObamaCare with the “Deem and Pass” process, they will have a green light to pass the New Amnesty bill the same way! And they WILL!


  14. comment number 14 by: HoosierArmyMom

    I agree with Fred on this topic. We need to go back to the way it was done with Ellis Island… if you have nothing to contribute, you go on back home!

    ObozoCare is going to make many people angry. Virginia has already passed a law stating that if the Feds come after Virginians who don’t want to sign on with it, they will see em in court!!!! You only have a legal contract if both parties are in agreement! All states need to follow suit!

    A friend in NYC sent me this tonight:

    To the Justices of the Supreme Court:

    This is no time for taciturnity. Many millions of us believe this president, and the Democrat House and Democrat Senate, are openly subverting—ignoring—the dictates of the Constitution. It is my understanding your Branch can tell an overreaching Executive Branch that its actions are not allowed by the Constitution; that you can tell the Congress that a law it passed violates the Constitution and, therefore, ceases to be a law; that you can even tell a state’s government that one of its laws breaks a rule in the Constitution.

    Tell us at this critical hour that you’ll execute your duty to be the final judge in every case involving laws of Congress, and of the ultimate law of the land: the U.S. Constitution.

    Pretty darned good point!!!

  15. comment number 15 by: HoosierArmyMom

    Maybe the next step is to bombard our SCOTUS with lots, and lots of snail mail expressing that they NEED TO REVERSE this abomination?????

  16. comment number 16 by: mrchuck

    It is time for Our Governor Perry to start a “Sheriff Joe Arapio” lockdown program on all illegal aliens.
    Our local police departments NEED the State Of Texas backing to start a state-wide id check of anyone who fits the description and profile.
    Once checked, and the person IS PROVEN to be a legit citizen of the USA, say thank you for being a US Citizen.
    Then go onto the next “profiled” person.
    I will tell you there will be a MASS TRAFFIC JAM heading to the Mexican Border.
    You can even authorize a police escort to the border if it gets that bad.
    Time is up. It is now time to get our political electees involved and if ANY say no,,,,take names and kick their ass out of office as soon as you can at next election.
    IT IS TIME TO PURGE and back flush our State of Texas Govt., and quit all cow-toweing to the FEDS.

    Somebody please refresh my memory…. What has Rick Petty done to help secure the border?

  18. comment number 18 by: Bloviating Zeppelin

    People, if you want to see what THIS country will become if we open the floodgates to Illegal Mexican Invaders, all you have to do is look towards the way Mexicans operate in THEIR country. Right now. Today. The Mexicans are barbarians. You want that crap in this country? Keep importing them. That couldn’t be a bigger mistake.
