Monterrey, N.L. Members of criminal organizations not only wear military type garments to disguise their activities but also dress as religious figures, the Cardinal of Monterrey, Francisco Robles Ortega, revealed yesterday.
Over the two days that the Army has operated a checkpoint on the Reynosa Highway, numbers of people dressed as priests have been detained. The hierarchy of the Catholic Church has assured that the presumed priests are imposters.
In an interview after a mass, the Cardinal said, People dressed as priests have been detained at checkpoints. They say, See how I am dressed? I am a priest, dont believe them. The collars they wear are not valid. The Cardinal said that real priests have identification issued by the church. Criminal organizations are ready to use whatever tactics they can to perpetrate the harm they are causing, said the Cardinal.

Two dismembered bodies left at Guerrero Museum
Chilpancingo, Gro. Two dismembered bodies were found early this morning by Mexican authorities in front of a childrens museum in Chilpancingo, the capital city of the southern state of Guerrero.
State police were alerted to two nude bodies with their heads, arms and legs cut off in front of La Avispa Museum, a government recreational museum for children, said police spokesmen. Nearby are two mechanical dinosaurs.
Two severed heads were placed over a narco-message signed by New Cartel de la Sierra. The contents of the message were not disclosed.
During the last two months this criminal group has left dozens of bodies on the streets of Chilpancingo.
Authorities do not know the origin of this new criminal group, but their writings suggest they are dedicated to killing extortionists, robbers, auto thieves, informants, and people who are not aligned with the cartel.
Guerrero is the battleground between the narco-trafficking organizations of Edgar Valdez Villareal, AKA: La Barbie, who was arrested this last 30th of August, and the cartel of the brothers Beltran Leyva.
Group of undocumented Mexicans arrested on California beach
San Clemente AP A group of 20 undocumented Mexicans were detained on a California beach aboard a boat, according to authorities.
The U.S. Border Patrol said that 17 men and three women were detained when they arrived on San Clemente State Beach in Orange County, California.
According to authorities, one 36 year old woman had fractured her leg boarding the boat and was taken to a hospital. The rest of the group was taken to a Border Patrol Station for disposition.
It is unusual for the undocumented to attempt entry into the USA by sea. The vast majority of the undocumented from Mexico and other countries attempt entry by land.

I suppose it’s a good cover if you can get past the unsavory aspects of it. I seem to recall reading that some of our SF and CIA folks posed as missionaries in the early stages of Viet Nam.

WASHINGTON, DC - Organizations in favor of innmigración announced Tuesday plans to convene on October 2 massive concentration in the U.S. capital to highlight the urgency of comprehensive immigration reform.

The goal is to mobilize these organizations just a month before midterm elections, scheduled for Nov. 2.

Can’t think of a better time for all charter buses on the eastern seaboard to come up with multiple flat tires.
There would be about five people attending if that happened.
If the Unions and Democrats (pretty much one and the same) couldn’t bus ‘em in, this would fall flat.
