Mexico Border City Has Record Drug Killings in ’10

  1. Houston Chronicle, January 1, 2011

    The embattled border city of Ciudad Juarez had its bloodiest year ever with 3,111 people killed in drug violence, an official said Saturday.

    The city across from El Paso, Texas, has seen its homicide rate soar to one of the highest in the world since vicious turf battles broke out between gangs representing the Juarez and Sinaloa cartels in 2008.

    That year, 1,587 people were killed in drug violence, and the toll increased to 2,643 in 2009.


    More than 30,000 people have been killed in drug violence nationwide since President Felipe Calderon launched an offensive against the cartels after taking office in December 2006.

    This is a greater death toll than Palestine/Israel in quite some time.

    Why is it that we aren't concerned with this blood bath on our border? Anyone else ever wonder why we haven't ended this "war on drugs" to stop the killing by taking the power out of the hands of drug cartels? Anyone else ever wonder why we have failed to secure the borders?
     
  2. Sheriff Paul Babeu on Napolitano’s Afghan Trip: “It’s Outrageous!… She’s the Homeland Security Secretary Not the Secretary of State”
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Monday, January 3, 2011, 10:54 Pm

    Arizona Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu slammed Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for visiting Afghanistan to lecture them about border security while the US border with Mexico is compromised and not secure.
    Sheriff Babeu, who has received death threats from the Mexican cartel, was outraged by Napolitano’s trip to Afghanistan. Babeu also spoke about the people from “countries of interest like Yemen, Somalia and Jordan” that they are capturing entering the US illegally.
     
  3. This is shameful. Why can't they deliver us our drugs and prostitutes and slaves peacefully.

    I hadn't heard about this, but it is hilarious that she can't do her own job but goes to Afghanistan at taxpayers expense to lecture on what she can't accomplish here.

    That's the Mexican cartels for ya.
     
  5. We don't need 30 million illegals living here to get drugs. We don't need "slaves". If it weren't for the 30 million illegals we wouldn't have nearly the employment problems that we are having now, wages would also be substantially higher and low/unskilled workers could actually afford to live.

    What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America ?

    ( note: ILLEGAL - here without papers )

    I, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, 'Mexican Visitor's Lament' -- 10/25/07.

    I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week.

    Hernandez said, 'They (illegal aliens) pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes...What Happens to your country's economy if 20 million people go away?' Hummm, I thought, what would happen, so I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I found below.



    It's a good question - it deserves an honest answer. Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America ?

    The answers I found may surprise you!

    In California , if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico , it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.

    In Colorado , 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grand-kids - would move back 'home', mostly to Mexico . That would save Coloradans an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs.

    It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

    Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.

    Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67 percent drop-out/flunk-out rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado . Denver 's 4% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.


    In Florida , 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America , the rule of law, and English.

    In Chicago , Illinois , 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.

    If 20 million illegal aliens returned 'home' --

    If 20 million illegal aliens returned 'home', the U.S. Economy would return to the rule of law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn't be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 Billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.

    No more push '1' for Spanish or '2' for English. No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our over-crowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.

    We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.

    In cities like L.A. , 20,000 members of the ' 18th Street Gang' would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!

    Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!
    America 's economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn't return to the aliens' home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America 's economy - which currently suffers an
    $8.7 trillion debt.

    At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California , Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.

    Americans wouldn't suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country-brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.

    Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would also put the 'progressives' on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11 percent of our greenhouse gases.

    Over one million of Mexico 's poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville , Texas to San Diego , California in what the New York Times called, 'colonias' or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty,
    filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, elec tricity, roads or any kind of sanitation.


    The New York Times reported them to be America 's new ' Third World ' inside our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias.

    (I've seen them personally in Texas and Arizona ; it's sickening beyond anything you can imagine.)




    By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico . We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico . We already invite a million
    people into our country legally more than all other countries combined annually. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation. It's time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.

    Interesting Statistics!




    Here are 14 reasons illegal aliens should vacate America , and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:


    1. $14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens.

    6. $3 Million Dollars 'PER DAY' is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. That's $1.2 Billion a year. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html

    7. 28% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.

    9. $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
    http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0604/01/ldt.01.html

    10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime probl em in the US . - http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0606/12/ldt.01.html

    11. During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from other terrorist countries. Over 10,000 of those were middle-eastern terrorists. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroine, crack, Guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border. - http://tinyurl.com/t9sht

    12.. The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.& nbsp; - http://www.nationalpolicyinstitute..org/publications.php?b=deportation


    13. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $65 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin, to their families & friends. http://www.rense.com/general75/niht.htm

    14. The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States !' - http://www.drdsk.com/articleshtml

    Total cost a whopping $538.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!!!
     
  9. Not only that, 20 million is the egalitarian left's number. The real number is most likely just shy of 30 million.

    I'll tell you a few things that would happen.

    1) Instant creation of almost 30 million jobs.

    2) Tremendous increase in the standard of living for lower income, unskilled people. There are less people to do low wage job= higher wages have to be paid to procure workers. Maybe low income Americans can actually start making enough money to live once again...

    3) Huge surge in government revenue- Nearly 30 million workers with new (legal) jobs will start paying taxes, likely on higher wages.

    4) Significant reduction in violent crime in areas which were previously inhabited by illegals.
