cant really blame them can you???
last week the army took over Juarez and arrested over a hundred people just plucking them off the streets... cant really blame them were quickly
creeping up on 800 murders in Juarez since the start of year...
anymore its not about making some extra money to buy the kids nice things and maybe send them to school... now their trying to escape a drug war where
the bad guys are better armed then the army is...
This wasn't a problem when I was a little kid in the 80's. Hell, we used to employ a couple at the ranch here and there and while against the law,
at that time the law looked the other way because it was just an example of folks trying to make a better life for themselves and their family back in
Mexico. When the game changed was when the illegals started commiting serious crimes on a regular basis. People killed, women raped, homes
burglarized, vehicles stolen in absolutely insane amounts, etc. They started coming across, committing crimes, and then allowed themselves to be
picked up by the border patrol who they knew wouldn't even attempt to ID them, just drive them back across to mexico, unload them, and return
thinking they'd simply caught an illegal alien and done their jobs.
Many of the problems in Mexico they have brought upon themselves. There are processes to go through in which you can send your children to school
here legally (Deming public schools, for instance has a program in which they bus acorss and fully educate every child in Palomas at no cost to
Mexico. Deming, BTW, is a medium sized city 20 miles North of Columbus.) There used to be an aid group in Luna County that would go across into
Mexico and build homes for these people, educate the adults, and try to get them work visas and jobs in the food plants around Deming. Within a
matter of a year or two those new houses were utterly trashed and many with work visas had seen them revoked thanks to DUI convictions or other
violations of the law by the workers.
Juarez has been a nest of murderers, rapists, and drug dealers since long before I was even born. I'd ocassionally drive there in college to go
drinking. At the time they were in the middle of a prostitute & female tourist murder spree. They'd found hundreds of bodies in the desert East of
the city. Some years later they determined it was a rape/murder ring involving bus drivers, cab drivers, and several police officers on the Juarez
force. If the people would invest half the energy they waste trying to subvert our border defenses into overthrowing corruption and bettering their
own country, Northern Mexico would be a decent place.
