Yesterday’s detonation of two car bombs in Mexico came just days after the bodies of 72 illegal aliens — mostly from Central America — were found at a ranch about 100 miles from Ciudad Victoria.
This ranks as the worst massacre since Mexican President Calderon sent 45,000 troops and thousands of federal police to fight drug cartels in late 2006.
The bomb attacks occurred the same day officials discovered the body of a police officer investigating the massacre. Mexican mayors are routinely gunned down and one, fearful for himself and his family, sought refuge in El Paso Texas. The military is corrupt and police are savagely killed by drug lords.
Reuters reports that at least 30 journalists have been killed in Mexico since 2006. The country is among the world’s most dangerous for reporters — and, it seems, anyone else. More than 28,000 people have died in drug related violence during that same time.
As the violence escalates and illegals are increasingly entering the United States by sea in violation of our law, we become ever more vulnerable. Despite these facts, the Obama administration is imposing new and more lenient policies upon Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.
ICE assistant secretary John Morton, an underling of Janet Napolitano’s, has instructed the agency’s legal office to stop the deportation proceedings of foreign nationals — “without criminal convictions” – who may now be eligible for a green card. Judges will be advised to dismiss pending cases.
How long before we will be flooded with “political refugees” from Mexico being welcomed as new Democrats for Obama?
