(CNN) -- In the first public incident of its kind, cartels are making direct death threats to U.S. law enforcement officials in Nogales, Arizona, the police chief there told CNN Monday.
Speculation about death threats by cartels towards U.S. law enforcement has been widespread for some time, but this is the first time U.S. officials along the border confirmed a case.

well I have been saying it for quite sometime, it is an invasion, despite what people say. Why doesn't AZ activate the Guard in that state?
Soon we will be having another Alamo battle just a different time.
President Obama is refusing to secure the border until
Congress reaches a breakthrough on comprehensive
immigration reform, Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl said at a recent
town hall meeting.
The No. 2 Senate Republican, in a video clip posted on
YouTube showing the senator speaking to a local Tea Party
crowd on Friday, said the president told him during a
one-on-one meeting in the Oval Office that he was
concerned he wouldn't win GOP support on immigration
legislation if he took care of border security first.

I say it's time we make them fear us. Let them say that to the national guard. Let them say that to our Air Force. Let them say that to our Marines.

Wouldn't it be something if these cartels were actually funded/trained by CIA? Could it be a stretch? Tons of US weapons supplied to the Mexican Government have been found in the cartel's hands.
it is really sad when you have a criminal in
the WH that holds American Citizens hostage
just to get congress to pass legislation to suit
your own personal agenda.

Something serious is going to have to be done in the coming years. The cartels already have a presence in several American cities, but direct threats against our own law enforcement on our own soil really seems to be a step up for them. Perhaps we'll see a reduction in criticism of the new Arizona laws if these threats continue or, god forbid, actually are carried out.
