Congress sent Mexico a very strong message this week when they voted to block $66 million in U.S. aid if Mexico does not extradite alleged cop-killers. The foreign operations spending bill amendment offered by Rep. Bob Beaupres, calls for cutting off U.S. aid to any country that fails to extradite anyone suspected of killing federal, state or local law enforcement officers.

The House of Representatives sent a stern message to Mexico on Tuesday night, voting to block $66 million in U.S. aid if the country does not extradite suspected cop-killers without strings attached.

Angered by the killing of Denver Police Detective Donald Young, the House voted 327-98 to approve an amendment offered by Rep. Bob Beauprez, R-Arvada, to a foreign operations spending bill.

It calls for cutting off U.S. aid to any country that fails to extradite suspects in the killing of federal, state or local law enforcement officers.

Beauprez said it applies to Mexico because, based on a ruling of the country's supreme court, it will not extradite suspects if they could face the death penalty or life without possibility of parole in the United States.

Apparently Beauprez was disappointed that Mexico's limitations forced prosecutors to avoid first-degree murder charges against Raul Gomez-Garcia. Prosecutors are now seeking an extradition with no stings attached.

Fortunately Garcia is now in a Mexican prison until the matter is resolved.

Unfortunately if Mexico does not extradite him he will more then likely be released on parole which could allow him to kill again.

The Origninal article did not give any details about Garcia, so it is not known if he was extradited and then arrested in Mexico or if he fled the country after the shooting.

This is the same congress that can't guard the border worth a screw,

now Beaupres wants to act all high and mighty with Mexico.

Why am i not impressed with all his indignation.

Hey, Bobby boy, Why don't you vote to get sufficient border patrol to keep ilegals out and criminals in?

No cojones as i suspected.

Why don't you congressional corporate hookers and your pimps take your phoney indignation to hollywood and pedall it there.

You can't blame congress they approved legislation that will increase the Border Patrol by 2000 agents each year for the next five years.


It increases the number of full-time border patrol agents by 2,000 per year for five years and imposes new federal standards on information that driver’s licenses must contain. MSNBC


Also note there is no mention in the article stating one way or the other stating legal or illegal. For all anyone knows he could have been here legally.

The question is why is Mexico protecting their criminal element from the prosecution they deserve?
