Chinese caught en route to the U.S.

Diario de Yucatan (Merida, Yucatan) & Excelsior (Mexico City) 12/15/09

Chinese caught en route to the U.S.

Odd noises from inside a truck stopped at a highway checkpoint led to the discovery of ten Chinese being smuggled en route to the U.S.; the truck was on a highway between Cosoleacaque, Veracruz, and Nuevo Teapan, Tabasco [an area on the north end of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, near the port city of Coatzocoalcos.] The seven males and three females, all illegally in Mexico, told federal officials that they had traveled from China to Nepal to India and then to Thailand. From there, they had gone by sea to Mexico, where they had boarded a trailer that would take them to their final destination, the United States. The truck driver and his “copilot” were both detained. “Hundreds of thousands of undocumented aliens cross through Mexican territory every year with the idea of reaching the United States, in search of better living opportunities.”

A tale of corruption

Mexico’s “PGR” [equiv. to the Dep’t. of Justice] reported that during Pres. Calderon’s term in office [which began 3 yrs. ago] and up until Aug. 31st of this year, 62 public officials have been charged with criminal violations due to their links with drug traffickers or with organized crime. Of the total, 31 were Federal Police, 9 in Customs, 20 were Federal Investigation Agents, and two were agents of the “Federal Public Ministry.” Three were the highest ranking members of “SIEDO” [the Mexican federal agency that specializes in organized crime investigations.] Several others were also high ranking officials in other law enforcement agencies.

Hanging heads

Two men were kidnapped Monday in El Salto, Durango. On Tuesday morning, just their heads were found hanging from a pedestrian overpass at nearby Pueblo Nuevo. Federal police are attempting to find the bodies.

El Universal (Mexico City) 12/15/09

Militaries running police in Cancun

The mayor of Cancun announced that the “Preventive,” “Tourist” and “Transit” police agencies of the city have been put under the command of generals and colonels. In announcing the new chiefs, the mayor said that this was done “due to the evident infiltration by crime in our municipal police.” Last February, a retired army general, then heading the Cancun city police, was assassinated along with his bodyguard and his nephew. That crime took place with the presumed complicity of organized crime.

Twenty-nine persons have been assassinated in Tijuana in the last four days. At least four of the victims were decapitated.

Weed & watermelons

A northbound tractor trailer was found to be hauling 2,580.8 kilos (6,271.76 lbs.) of marihuana; the semi was at the Mexican side of the border crossing, awaiting to go to Calexico, Calif., and then to Los Angeles. The weed was in “perfectly wrapped” and taped packages hidden among a load of watermelons.

El Sol de Mexico (Mexico City) 12/15/09

“Divided by ‘the wall of shame’ “

[full art. transl.] Tijuana- The Metropolitan Archbishop, Rafael Romo Munoz, qualified as a shame the fence that the government of the United States is building to separate migrant families; he stated this during the Bi-National Shelter (event) held yesterday where the Friendship Park once was. Around one hundred persons on the Mexican side shared the event with some 80 fellow citizens who struggled to be present on the North American side. Immigration officials only allowed groups of 25 persons to pass, who could stay for only half an hour in the area where the Friendship Park was located.

During an interview, Romo Munoz pointed out how surprising it was to him that the current Nobel Peace Prize (winner), the U.S. President Barack Obama, would build so quickly the three dividing fences that now separate Mexico from the United States on this side of the border. Likewise, he repudiated (the fact) that the Anglo-Saxon authorities would shatter the possibility that the classic meetings and reunions of migrant families could take place in that symbolic place. Amidst praises, songs, prayer and shows of affection, the highest Catholic hierarch in the region pointed out the significance of the word shelter, which means refuge. A place that opens the doors and the heart, so that those tired and the pilgrims may enter. In that same prayer, Romo Munoz asked the Almighty to soften the heart of people. “The Friendship Park ought to no longer be called that because of the many obstacles that they have placed, it is already impossible for brothers to approach one another or even to touch hands as in previous times,” he lamented.

Finally, the Prelate stated that this was the XVI Edition of the Bi-National Shelter, but this was the first year that it was carried out with barriers in the way. Nevertheless, he asked not to lose hope. It needs adding that, as a fraternal deed, some nuns belonging to various migrants’ shelters tossed sweets in some little bags to share them with the brothers in the U.S.A., however, immigration authorities seized the candies because they termed it as “an attempt against national security.” A number of activists in favor of the rights of migrants could be seen on the North American side, among them Enrique Morones, recently granted the award of activist in favor of Human Rights in Mexico, which he received from President Felipe Calderon. [The area in question is at the extreme southwestern point of the continental United States. During WWII and afterwards, it was used as an auxiliary communications facility for the U.S. Navy base at San Diego. For years after that, only naval maintenance personnel and U.S. Border Patrol officers had access to the place. Falling into disuse, it was ceded to the State of California as a gift in the early 60’s. It was made into a park and then became an additional focus of border violations.]

What fence? Oh, does he mean that bit of knocked down and cut down bit of barbed wire or a couple barriers that can be climbed over, crawled under or walked around? That's the best joke I've heard all day! Here's an idea, how about illegals quit crawling under and going around and stay the heck on the south side of the border and then families won't be separated.

Thank goodness they’re going to set up legal methods of entry like work visas. That way the two million that come across now per year can do it legally.

There!

Fixed.

All better now. Schools and hospitals will no longer have to give them free service. Oh wait...

There are worse things my friend. We used to have a fairly decent smattering of Asians in my neighborhood. One day I opened up the trash bin to toss out refuse, and there was the fully cooked carcass of a cat. It had been fully cleaned and cooked, but there wasn’t any sign of it having been put to use. Ouch!

Its been going on for over a hundred years - other countries take advantage of lax US border controls by encouraging their excess population to immigrate, they get hard currency and influence our legislation-making in exchange.

“Been coming over the border through AZ.”

Indeed. Many reports in the last few weeks of Chinese aliens crossing...how many aren’t caught? According to the border patrol they nab about 25%.

More from NAFBPO today.

Cambio de Michoacán (Morelia, Michoacán) 12/14/09

Federal forces in Michoacán also face public opposition

Inhabitants of several communities in the area of Apatzingan, Michoacán, where federal police were ambushed by presumed members of La Familia last week, held demonstrations today in front of the city hall to demand the departure of the federal forces. The citizens charge the federal troops with “excesses” of authority and civil rights violations. The people allege that after the attack on the police last week, there have been abductions of people by the federals in order to obtain information regarding the location of key players in the criminal organization. The sign in the photo below reads, “Away with the PFP [Protective Federal Police] for beatings and thefts they commit on the people who are INNOCENT!”

Los Zetas and La Familia clash in Uruapan

Members of two criminal gangs, Los Zetas and La Familia Michoacána, engaged in a half-hour gun battle in Uruapan, Michoacán, Monday, resulting in one dead and six arrested. [Two other periodicals put the arrests at nine.] The combat also included fragmentation grenades. It began when the La Familia group attacked a house where Los Zetas were holed up. Los Zetas held their ground and the noisy activity caught the attention of the Mexican military and several police agencies. All converged on the area to make the arrests.

Three children victims of gang war

In a presumed attack by one criminal gang on another in the state of Chihuahua, two brothers, five and ten years of age, died when the barn where they were sleeping caught fire. Their sister, seven, escaped alive, but with severe burns. The attack took place around midnight when an armed group fired into the structure located near the town of Balleza, in mountainous country west of Parral. The children’s parents, indigenous Tarahumara, were at a festival nearby at the time.

Pendejo ping. The wall was not built on BO’s watch, and in fact, DHS under BO has basically stopped all construction. They had to rush to get it done before he took over. “Friendship Park” should have been named “Sneak Across the Border and Into California Under the Pretense of Meeting Up with Your Cuates at the Beach.” What a load.

Driver in fatal hit-and-run sentenced in Salem

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — An illegal immigrant who drove away after hitting a toddler in a Salem parking lot has been sentenced to one year and five months in prison.

Juan Lopez-Perez pleaded guilty Thursday morning to failing to perform the duties of a driver in a crash.

Defense attorney Steven Walls said his client left the scene Nov. 24 because a crowd was gathering, he feared for his safety and he was in the country illegally. Neither drugs nor alcohol contributed to the collision that killed his neighbor - 2-year-old Erika Rubi Meza.

The good Padre should be instructing his flock in the 10 COMMANDments. Like not stealing . . . or bearing a false witness . . . by crossing the border ILLEGALLY and then lying to get a job.

Sorry Padre. Teach the flock to OBEY the LAW. Teach them to read and write Spanish. Teach the women to sew to create a cottage industry. Teach the men a trade. CREATE A MIDDLE CLASS.

And yes, I’m a Catholic.
