Mexican cartels plague Atlanta

ATLANTA — In a city where Coca Cola, United Parcel Service and Home Depot are the titans of industry, there are new powerful forces on the block: Mexican drug cartels.

Their presence and ruthless tactics are largely unknown to most here. Yet, of the 195 U.S. cities where Mexican drug-trafficking organizations are operating, federal law enforcement officials say Atlanta has emerged as the new gateway to the troubled Southwest border.

Rival drug cartels, the same violent groups warring in Mexico for control of routes to lucrative U.S. markets, have established Atlanta as the principal distribution center for the entire eastern U.S., according to the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center.

In fiscal year 2008, federal drug authorities seized more drug-related cash in Atlanta — about $70 million — than any other region in the country, Drug Enforcement Administration records show.

And this comes as a surprise to ANYONE?? Actually, Atlanta does surprise me by being the city of choice, there’s a lot of well armed redneck southern boys around Atlanta, you would think that there might actually be a few patriots among them that could, or would take some initiative where a bunch of wetback drug dealers, and their need for removal was concerned!

An added attraction for the cartels, say Nahmias and Rodney Benson, the DEA’s Atlanta chief, is the explosive growth of the Hispanic community.

Nahmias calls northeast suburban Gwinnett County, about 30 miles northeast of Atlanta, the “epicenter” of the region’s drug activity.

It is a certainty that Obama will do nothing to alleviate this situation, but the immediate blame is NOT on his shoulders. We can thank one George W. Bush for the debacle that this nation has become concerning the open borders and out of control ILLEGAL invasion! That is a failure that can be squarely placed on his shoulders.

I see a number of blogs and sites espousing their lamentations regarding Bush over Obama. You likely won’t see that here. Those 2 ignorant douchebags are the very reason that America is in the predicament that it’s in! Bush refused to close the border after 9-11, thus allowing this nation to be totally over-run in the 8 years of his presidency and Obama doesn’t know where the damned border is.

The time is fast approaching America, the time when the average citizen will have no choice but to stand for what’s right or be consumed by ALL the wrong that is taking place in this once great nation…
