MEXICO CITY (AP) — Prosecutors in northern Mexico say the remains of 18 people have been found at a suspected drug-gang body dumping site near the northern city of Monterrey.

The state attorney general's office in Nuevo Leon state says the bodies were found in a series of pits, and some were scattered on the ground.

Whoever says the drug problem at the border isn't bad hasn't been paying attention to what has been happening at the border. I may not like the president but he needs to do something about our border problem before things get more out of control. Him sitting on his hands about it isn't going to make it go away.

Investigators are still struggling to identify the remains but suspect drug traffickers are involved.
