Violence spilling over our borders.

Drug violence has spread in all states except in WV and VT according to experts.
People seeking assylum to the US from Mexico is at an all time high.
Reporters, police officers and businessmen are trying to escape the escalating violence in Mexico. In Juarez alone, a city of 1.5 million across from El Paso, there have been over 500 murders this year. Much of the violence in our own borders is indeed attributed to the drug trade.



"Mexico Drugs = U.S. Violence

The drug wars raging in northern Mexico continue to claim lives–more than 4,000 in the last 18 months–and continue to spill over our southern border in to the United States. Former State Department counterterrorism official Fred Burton, author of “Ghost: Confessions of a Counterterrorisim Agent,” joined Lou to explain how the Mexicna narco-state translates directly to the violence on our streets. "

Re: Violence spilling over our borders.

I would much rather discuss your love of Mexican hookers.

Or how Lou Dobbs is a total crackpot.

Either will do.

Re: Violence spilling over our borders.

Yeah that sucks, but it isn't "that" high. Detriots murder rate is 47 per 100,000. That means Juarez with 500 murders is around 33 per 100,000 (of course that is so far this year, but you extrapolate across the full year that gets you around 60 for the full year. High, but not astronomical compared to Detriot).

Don't get me wrong, it is a serious problem, I am not making light of it. I am simply comparing it to one of the bad US cities...with a murder rate less then twice Detriots. Not good, but still mildly safe. Of course if you are part of one of the drug cartels, the policia or a journalista...maybe significantly less safe then anywhere else in North America.

Re: Violence spilling over our borders.

"This is the third lock-down, due to Border Violence, that has been on the steady increase. Mexican Drug Cartels and other organized crime runs rampant along our border with heavily armed, and well organized thugs of destruction. Our own US Federal Governement seems to be asleep at the wheel, and have even pulled the National Guard, leaving a more porous border. Our border is being ravaged with our ranches, towns and cities taking the hits, with killings and increased crime (kidnappings, beheadings, rapes, murders)"

Re: Violence spilling over our borders.

This topicshould be pushed by the media but isn't discussed regularly because everyone wants to know who is going to rehab and the last thing Obama's wife said.

This is interesting and definately an eye opener to those who are in the dark when it comes to the drug trade and illegal innigration.

I should add though as my family lives in VT, that there are some small groups of Latin American and other street gangs in the larger towns in Vermont further spreading the plague, and to the local people it's both a sign of the times and 'not in our town.'

What's the use of happiness? It can't buy you money.
