We give them money, the crime continues
U.S. border governors–except for Janet Napolitano, who shrewdly claims a scheduling conflict– are meeting with their counterparts from six Mexican states in Mexico City for discussions regarding combating crime and enhancing border security amid increasing drug cartel violence in Mexico.
Betch’a a wall isn’t on the agenda.
The governors of California, Texas and New Mexico plan to “offer support” to Mexican President Felipe Calderon for his crackdown against the drug trade according to an Associated Press report.
Of course, Calderon, who has termed America as “swaggering, macho, and anti-Mexican.” wants a constant flow of unconditional U.S. dollars, some of which states have diverted to fighting our own crime problems–much stemming from the relentless influx of illegals into our country from his.
Meanwhile, President Bush has urged Congress to approve the first $500 million installment of a proposed $1.4 BILLION law enforcement aid package known as the Merida Initiative to combat increasingly violent drug crime in Mexico. The United States is incomprehensively funding a wall for Mexico’s southern border with Central America while leaving America’s border looking like Swiss cheese.
What a deal for the taxpaying citizens!
