Report: Mexico drug violence could spill into U.S.

Report: Mexico drug violence could spill into U.S.

Drug-gang violence that plagues Mexico is worsening and could spill over into the United States, according to a new report by a consultant on Gov. Rick Perry’s Texas Border Security Council.

While Mexican President Felipe Calderon has deployed as many as 20,000 troops and federal police to battle the country’s powerful drug cartels, gangsters are fighting among themselves for dominance as the flow of drugs continues into America.

The 17-page document to be released today said that more than 2,100 people were killed in drug-related violence since Jan. 1, making 2007 the deadliest year yet.

It said the U.S. side of the border is vulnerable because law enforcement is poorly coordinated, under-supplied and sometimes corrupt.

But drug violence, which has become a part of daily life in many Mexican border communities, has not materialized to a significant extent in their American sister cities.

I have a surprise for you guys writing this story, it already has spilled over, they just haven’t had the running machine gun battles through the streets of a major U.S. city yet, but even that is coming…

Drug gang murders happen every day, and along the border, they happen with great frequency, and in many cases they go totally unnoticed as a drug murder, bodies are found in remote areas all the time, killed by gunshot, stabbing, beating, strangulation, who knows what other methods, in some cases it’s the Coyotes, the human smugglers, they turn on the people they are smuggling, in some instances it’s the robbers that prey on the illegals coming into this nation, double jeopardy for the illegals, they are generally carrying everything they have of value and whatever money they still have left, but in many are simply drug runners, narcotics smugglers, and they have been taken out by a rival gang, killed for control of a trade route, killed for their cargo of drugs, their bodies left to rot in the desert simply because the killers know that there’s not going to be a lot of forensic investigation done to determine much more than ‘Yep, another Mexican bought it coming in’

We don’t have the human resources to investigate and determine every exact detail of those deaths nor do we have the financial resources available, and until running gun battles are taking place in our own major cities, there will STILL be nothing more done than has been done already, and again, that is NOTHING…

Only God knows how many gangs are already in place and doing business, they ply their deadly trade, they deal in death and destruction, every day, it’s a matter of business for them, their product is DEATH, in every sense of the word, it kills those that USE the drugs and it kills those that transport the drugs and it kills innocent family members and innocent citizens every day, and what gets done about the illegals in this nation and the drug trade they conduct??

Very little, our borders are still wide open and now that the weather has cooled some, the human wave of illegals begins to come across once again, it’s never stopped but with cooling desert temperatures they come in HUGE numbers, and with that wave comes a lot more than illegals…

And one pretty simple question comes to mind on this thing too, if you can successfully smuggle people and drugs into the USA, doesn’t it stand to reason that terrorists are being smuggled in by the same people as well?? I wonder if Bush ever thought of that??

    As we do nothing, they’re bringing in more weapons and people. I watched on FOX how MS13 has become the largest most powerful gang in America. It’s only a matter of time before something happens.

    Bush condemns private citizens (Minutemen) for trying to do something but him, with the resources, does nothing. Get the National Guard out of Iraq and down to our Southern Border and issue them bullets.

    Anytime you have Mexicans you have drugs. This should come as no shock to any thinking human being. The unstemmed tide of illegal immigrants from Mexico bring drugs, guns and rampant disease, primarily Hepatitis A, B & C, Chickenpox, measles, influenza and Tuberculosis. As you partially point out, gun battles have not publicly broken out in major cities covered by the DEM — however, what you did NOT point out is that major gun battles HAVE occurred between Mexican “authorities” (I write that EVER so loosely) and American law enforcement agencies at the border — gun battles involving the Mexican military over — guess what? — DRUGS.
