“what turned Phoenix into the kidnap capital of the U.S. “
The Mexican gangs only kidnap OTHER illegal aliens. This is because illegals are afraid to go to the police. I say, who cares?
Phoenix being the kidnap capital of the U.S. means more crime, over and above kidnapping. Torture, murder, hands copped off, extortion, prostitution, drug sales driven by Mexican gangs, fraud, etc.
BTW, a short hop across the border, those same Mexican cockroach gangs are kidnapping Americans in record numbers. You know what's coming next.
