Could Mexico's drug war spread to the Central Valley?
cannot be posted, per FR rules.
“Oh, though I walk through the valley of drugs”
In a word...Duh.
We have border security to prevent this sort of thing.
/sarcasm of course
On business in a central valley town a couple years ago, I nearly stumbled into a crime scene in the early AM.
I was about 60 shell casings, marked by small “A” frame letters, and lots of police tape. By the looks of the cops, it was pretty routine.
Scanner traffic in the area at night was beyond active.
The Valley already has big problems.
Gee...I don’t know.
Every small town in the central valley has been taken over by Mexicans....legal and illegal. They have been working on the smaller cities for yrs.
And the jokes continue ............. FRegards
Much of US comsumpted (is that even a word?) Cocaine comes from south of Mexicos border.
Talk about a dangerous job. “South American Cocaine mule”, not something you would see in USA Today’s want ads.
Most other drugs rot society from within.
I have the utmost of respect for ANY Mexican that realizes the problem, and does thier best to work with the US DEA.
People are dying.
The problem is too big, there’s far too much money involved.
I know that there are those “Libritarians” that call for decriminalization of pot. I think that would be very very bad, Note:
Medical Pot is a disaster, There is too much money involved to control it. Abuse is a guaruntee. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against what a person does, especially when dealing with the horrific pain in dealing with disease. It will be abused.
My whole thing is that if we, as a nation, decriminalize pot, even tax it twice as high as tobacco, It’s going to end up on the playground. Now I don’t know about you, but I know our kids are less and less educated, year after disappointing year, That Is A Fact!
Do we need MariGiwana thrown into that mix?
I think not!
The Mexican govt knows Social Security provides financial aid to these "refugees."
The Mexican gov't is coaching its citizens-----to drain the US Treasury..... to mooch off working class US taxpayers to get monthly Social Security checks under the "refugee" status.
Keep in mind these people never paid a dime into the SS system; yet, they can collect seven years straight......and get extended payments if they are politically well-connected.
The SS checks to these "persecuted refugees" can amount to $1000 a month...... and more. Some "refugees" are wealthy Mexican nationals whining about "persecution" in order to collect.
Most of this money is sent back to Mexico where the govt gets a cut. The Mexican govt expects the Mexican "refugees" to return as soon as they setup several identities to get multiple US checks coming in to Mexico monthly.
CONG TANCREDO'S CONVERSATION WITH JUAN HERNANDEZ Juan Hernandez is a dual US-Mexico citizen---he heads up the Mexican govt's "Ministry of Mexicans Living in the US" (he was MacCain's Hispanic outreach man).
Hernandez told Cong Tancredo that the Mexican govt is plotting to increase the flow of Mexican nationals into the US..........to serve Mexicos needs:
(1) to increase $50B a year remittances (30% of Mexican GDP);
(2) to secure US employment for an exploding Mexican population,
(3) to alleviate mexico's social instability;
(4) to force US taxpayers to provide free training and college degrees to Mexicans who are expected to return to Mexico with these skills.
Mexico desires amnesty b/c millions of Hispanics tied economically, politically and linguistically to Mexico can exert enormous influence on US....that means billions of US tax dollars transferred to Mexico. US citizens will be forced to subsidize another failed foreign government.
