Mexican drug lords creating havoc in southern Arizona

Mexican drug cartels have set up shop on American soil, maintaining lookout bases in strategic locations in the hills of southern Arizona from which their scouts can monitor every move made by law enforcement officials, according to federal agents.

The scouts are supplied by drivers who bring them food, water, batteries for radios — all the items they need to stay in the wilderness for a long time.

To say that this area is out of control is an understatement,” said an agent who patrols the area. “We (federal border agents), as well as the Pima County Sheriff Office and the Bureau of Land Management, can attest to that.”

This is serious business, bound to affect every Arizonan. We have a right to secure our border. Not “first” as John McCain is so fond of saying, but finally.

    This is occuring in Arizona, NOT Mexico. We must be insane to allow this to continue. Mexico is a third world country that is a war zone and we are being inundated with the crime overflowing from their side of the border.

    Arizonans/Americans have a right to have a secure border. Not “first,” as you point out McCain says. He means first before amnesty. He’s never changed his tune, he’s just trying to sound more hawkish now that he has a real challenge from JD Hayworth.

    Elect McCain and he’ll try to shove amnesty down our throats again.

    And the Feds act as if their surprised. What the hell do they think Arizona has been trying to tell them?

    I think they will do what they have been doing and that is NOTHING.

    When the USA is being invaded it is time to bring out the big guns!

    John McCain has a family, children and I would imagine, grandchildren by way of his adopted sons and oldest daughter from his first marriage. Doesn’t he care what kind of country he leaves them? I’d hate to think that his quest for votes trumps all else. Illegal immigration and the accompanying crime is an issue that spans the nation, but we in Arizona are in the forefront of this war for our survival.

    All God’s children just coming to do the jobs Americans refuse to do…Juan McCain

    Obama’s Path of Destruction
    Is Obama’s refusal to secure our U.S./Mexican border from millions of invading illegal immigrants — by design?

    Despite strong evidence that heavily armed Mexican drug cartels continuously cross Arizona’s border smuggling drugs, attack Arizona police and commit crimes that threaten all Americans, Obama has vehemently refused to protect Arizona’s border with sufficient troops. Despite millions of unemployed Americans having to compete with 12 million illegal immigrants for jobs, Obama won’t lift a finger to stop the gushing flow of Mexicans that 24/7 illegally enter the United States via Arizona.

    Increasingly states are moving toward bankruptcy, and can’t afford the costs of illegal immigrant medical services, education and incarceration of illegal immigrants that commit crimes. Before addressing why Obama refused to sufficiently help Arizona protect its state/U.S. border, one might ask why Obama, in the midst of a financial crisis, wants to burden U.S. taxpayers by making Puerto Rico a state, often referred to as “Welfare Island.”

    This can’t be true. Janet says our border is more secure than it has ever been.

  7. sherriaz says:

    Every single voter in Arizona needs to lay this at McCains door since this has been going on the entire time he has been advocating for amnesty. Knowing that our border is as compromised as it is- and growing worse daily- yet doing nothing but blather should spell a permanent retirement for McCain. Hopefully he will be followed by Nobama in 2012.

    Meanwhile, Mexico and the cartels are counting on America remaining a land of wimps and doing nothing while they steal more and more of our land. Will Nobama listen if they get as far as Chicago?

    Seems like a good reason to end the drug war to me.

    • pgillenw says:

      Jon, It is time for Mexico to end its drug war and time for our Federal government to see to it that the Illegals and the Illegal drug lords stay South of the Border.

    Next time you read a news report about Mexican drug cartels shooting and murdering people, smuggling drugs, causing havoc, crossing our border, try—blocking out the name Mexican and you will note the story could be describing Taliban terrorists. Perhaps Arizonans should start calling the Mexican Drug Cartels the Mexican Taliban. If Obama can’t stop the Mexican Taliban crossing our U.S. Border, threatening and shooting our police, it is absurd to think Obama can defeat the Afghanistan Taliban in their own country.

  10. Ross Wolf says:

    Fox news recently reported June 25, 2010 that a Congresswoman raised concerns the terrorist organization Hezbollah operating out of Lebanon may be colluding with Mexican drug cartels; that it appears Hezbollah may be expanding its influence in Mexico along the U.S. border and is now creeping inside the United States, with the help of Mexican drug gangs. The Congresswoman expressed serious concern Iranian agents and members of Hezbollah are believed to be learning Spanish in Socialist Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela before attempting to obtain false documents to enter the United States as purported Mexicans. And recently gang members in U.S. prisons in the Southwest are showing up with tattoos in Farsi that imply an Iranian influence and its proxy army, Hezbollah.”
    If this Congresswoman’s expressed concerns are correct, the U.S. Mexican border is not only wide open to a relentless stampede of illegal immigrants but Terrorists to enter the U.S. to kill Americans. If Iran is involved with Venezuela Hugo Chavez, teaching terrorists Spanish as cover, to enter the U.S., is there any reason to believe Iran wouldn’t provide Spanish speaking terrorists nuclear devices that may be detonated in America? Meanwhile Obama to advance his leftist agenda and to placate his constituency of Socialists/Marxist is not lifting a figure to protect our U.S. Mexican border.

    Makes no sense — why not complete the wall and add to patrols when citizens clearly want it so much? Why not cooperate with Arizona’s governor to stop the flow of immigrants? Unless, of course, illegals will be declared legal and able to vote (before November). If there’s anger that Arizona hasn’t “fallen in” with Washington’s plans, it “makes sense” if administration interests are more important than everyone else’s.

    Increasingly European and Russian media and independent articles abroad, allege 65%-70% of Americans oppose Obama. Foreign articles more frequently discuss a potential revolt in America, that America is a tinderbox that could be set off if Obama unjustly came down hard on Tea Party members or other Patriots.Foreign articles discuss the DISCLOSE ACT stating it appears Obama intends to silence ordinary Citizens.Some publications even mention some states now talk succession. While the latter may be far fetched, the world has awakened that Americans are more than just angry at the man that calls himself President. Historically when a nation’s leader is opposed or hated by such a large percentage of the Citizenry and at the same time is grabbing unprecedented power, the People have snapped.

    Recently the left in the U.S. has been referring to the Tea Party as insurgents, that the Tea party threatens their objectives. When I read that, tears came to my eyes-with joy. The left is on the Run. However Obama may be able to limit his steep drop in the polls to the percentage of Americans dependent on welfare and other government assistance; those recipients would have to believe Obama threatened their handouts before they would oppose Obama. Someone might inform them that threat is imminent under Obama’s economic policies.

    It is no surprise Obama wants to make Puerto Rico a State, often referred to as Welfare Island and give amnesty to 20 million illegal immigrants, many poor, to expand the Democrat’s base; Obama by 2012 wants immense power, to achieve his dream of taking the wealth from others to spread it among the masses. Americans will be taxed out of existence.
