Mexican drug smugglers move into N.M.

Mexican drug smugglers move into N.M.

COLUMBUS, N.M. - This dusty little border town with almost no visible means of support has been seeing something of a boom in the past year: Brand-new Lincoln Navigators and Cadillac Escalades with flashy wheel rims are parked just off the bleak main drag. Homes are selling quickly, sometimes for cash.

The source of this sudden wealth? An influx of Mexican drug smugglers, investigators say.

The smugglers are fleeing the Mexican army’s occupation of the town of Palomas, on the other side of the U.S.-Mexico border fence, and settling in Columbus, where there has been a law-enforcement vacuum. The four-man police force in Columbus has turned over seven times in three years because of scandal or apathy.

Just HOW stupid can the people running this nation be?? I am NOT pointing fingers at ANY one particular administration or individual either. I am pointing at ALL of them for at least the last 8 to 12 years. Clinton, Bush 43 and now Obama.

None of this is news, not to any thinking person living in a border state. Many of us have been pleading with the government to close the U.S.-Mexican border and secure it with armed troops, National Guard troops, armed and with orders to ENGAGE those that cross our borders ILLEGALLY!

A little town like Columbus, N.M. is easily over-run by the narco-terrorists, people are easily corrupted by the HUGE sums of money to be made in the drug trade being conducted by these ILLEGALS and narco-terrorists. These people walk around with their heads held high, knowing that now that they have established themselves on THIS side of the border, they are practically immune to Mexican prosecution, such as it is, and they are fairly certain that the Obama administration isn’t going to do too much to interdict their activities either.

“There’s a lot of people who don’t work but have a lot of possessions,” Odom said, adding that he often spots local teens driving fancy new cars. “They have hubcaps that cost more than my truck.”

Where do you suppose these *possessions* are coming from? For those that have any sense at all, any shred of a working brain, it’s pretty obvious. Narco-dollars! In Columbus, there’s not much else, other than the apathy, and sheer stupidity of some of it’s residents.

“Criminals don’t live here,” said Maria Gutierrez, the 48-year-old owner of the Pancho Villa Cafe, where menus include a wanted poster for the Mexican outlaw whose 1916 raid on the United States took place on this patch of desert. “The problem is in Palomas. It’s serene here. It’s tranquil here.”

It is not clear whether the smugglers are legal or illegal immigrants, but local law-enforcement authorities say that’s not their business, it’s the federal government’s. And townspeople don’t seem to care either way.

Let me remind the reader, for those that may not know the makeup of New Mexico,, southern New Mexico is populated by a seriously large Hispanic population, some legal, some not, most are supporters of the Democratic party. That may explain some of the ignorance and apathy but noting can explain the *blind eye* many are willing to turn regarding the narco-terrorists and the ill-gotten gains they use to try and buy themselves some level of respectability!

Meanwhile, our borders remain WIDE OPEN, certain faux conservatives continue to call people like me fascists, racists and xenophobes, and those certain individuals wonder why people like me have no respect for them, and their RINO ways…
