Mexico's Drug Wars Come to America

From Fox News:

Drug smuggling gangs in Mexico have sent well-armed assassins, or “sicarios,” into Arizona to locate and kill bandits who are ambushing and stealing loads of cocaine, marijuana and heroin headed to buyers in the United States, the Department of Homeland Security has warned Arizona law enforcement authorities.

In a memo sent in May and widely circulated since, the department said: “We just received information from a proven credible confidential source who reported that a meeting was held in Puerto Penasco in which every smuggling organization who utilizes the Vekol Valley was told to attend. This included rival groups within the Guzman cartel.”…

This would not be an issue if we controlled our border. Unfortunately, we have resigned control of the border to the drug gangs and now they are reaching in to the United States to control the land beyond the border. How long before our border towns become like Mexican border towns? How long before our police chiefs and mayors are beheaded because they crossed a drug gang? How long before our law enforcement is intimidated or bribed in to turning the other way?

If we are to be a nation of laws, then we must enforce all our laws – unless we want to pass a law allowing anyone and anything to cross our border at will, then we have to resign ourselves to enforcing our border control laws. No pleas for the poor immigrants (which are false pleas, anyway), no references to political correctness, so storied fables of a nation of immigrants should deter us – our laws say you can’t cross the border without our express permission, and that is what we must do.

Because we don’t do this, people are murdered in great, big bloody batches in Mexico…because we’ve turned a blind eye to the massive illegality upon the border, the Mexican drug gangs have taken control. Because we don’t control the border the illegal immigrants our liberals supposedly care about are raped, robbed and murdered – with those surviving the passage then being ruthlessly exploited by American employers who can’t see a week in to the future. Enforcing our border laws is a matter of basic justice – to ourselves, and to the illegal immigrants.

I don’t care what it takes – if we have to spend hundreds of billions of dollars and build a wall 100 feet high from end to end, we have to do it. If we don’t do this, then we are an unjust nation. A nation of chaos and crime, not a nation of free people and laws.
