Armed to the hilt, they came from land and air, determined to restore order to Mexico's most violent city.
Nearly 2,000 Mexican soldiers and armed federal police poured into the border town of Ciudad Juarez last weekend.
The city - just across from El Paso in Texas - has been ravaged by drug gangs. Just this month 250 people were killed there by hitmen fighting for lucrative smuggling routes.

....and if this is really true, we should be hearing of Texas citizens firing upon groups of Mexicans fleeing the clashes and crossing the border to America.
I'm almost of the mind to support them being "plinked" back across the border. We cannot let America become a safe haven for the fleeing gang members who, I'm sure, jump the line, wait for the coast to clear, and then go back.
The border between the US and Mexico should NOT be some sort of no-mans-land, right?
