Posted on 10/05/2010 12:18:43 PM PDT by La Lydia
BROWNSVILLE Brownsville Police Chief Carlos Garcia says the border violence has officially crossed over into the Valley. Two Tamaulipas men were assassinated inside a truck Friday. The chief of police says the investigation has led them to believe this wasnt a crime committed by someone in the US. This was a hit ordered by the cartel, he says. Cameron County Judge Carlos Cascos isnt surprised to see spillover violence in Brownsville. He says, it was a matter of time before it trickled down to our community.
Residents say they didn't think it would become a reality. One woman who wanted to conceal her identity says witnessing a crime...could be very dangerous. "If an innocent family would have been passing by and seen that they would have been the next target," said one woman. She worries about future violence and is considering moving out of the Valley.
Cascos advises everyone to be cautious and more aware of their surroundings.

Well, they DO have to vote in our election next month......
So it begins...
I keep hearing that this is “drug crime”. It’s organized crime violence. Doesn’t matter the product. They traffic in death and sexual slavery too.
Our own nation had a serious problem with organized crime. It still exists but does not get coverage the way it did once upon a time. And gangsters are still treated as hip celebrities in the popular media mythmaking.
The corruption can be everything from securing goverment contracts and kickbacks to murder for hire to buying judges and law enforcement protection.
open borders ping
Impeach the islamist!
Exactly what happens when you just look away at evil...and also participate in it by allowing your next of kin to come across the border freely to do their business. The are all over the south and southwest and have been for some time. Austin just had a feature on last nights news about the drug crimes moving in from Mexico.
Some will take jobs as roofers, maids, landscapers, etc. and know who and where to hit! Many just let new ones work for them as cheap labor.
We MUST stop all immigration for a few years just to catch up with the ilk we have here if we are to survive. Can’t bring family in either. DC is drugged and as scared as border citizens.
This is just so inconvenient!! After all, there’s a LAWSUIT to push against Arizona! They are GUILTY, I say! Guilty for the despicable act of... um... trying to prevent this very thing from happening.
PROBLEM: Border Violence Has Offically Crossed Over onto US soil
SOLUTION: Landmine the borders.
The cartel-related killings — or at least the REPORTED ones — have just started happening, but they’ve occupied ever-increasing parts of our Southwest for years.
There's plenty of blame to go around but a large share of this is due to Ted Kennedy's advocacy of that vile "Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965". On the floor of the U.S. Senate he promised (or actually lied):
...our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same.... Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset.... Contrary to the charges in some quarters, the act will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area...
Realizing this may inflame some FReepers leaning libertarian, I'd like to see the "JohnsonReed Act" of 1924 reenacted. It was authored by two Republican representatives and signed by Calvin Coolidge, one of the two most Conservative presidents in history. In my opinion, we have a right to control who we allow into our nation, including those who wish to become "legal" citizens.
Young people may not realize that the Rio Grande Valley area of Texas was once a nice place. Tom Landry was from there and, a few decades ago, non-Hispanic whites weren't the tiny minority they are today.
Too bad there are so many fellow-traveling marxist judges who will halt ANY effort on our part to stop this from happening. Soon we’ll see media outlets down there begging for direction from the cartel gangs so they can protect themselves.
One big reason I hope that evil bastard Ted Kennedy is burning in the depths of hell.
“I keep hearing that this is drug crime. Its organized crime violence. Doesnt matter the product. They traffic in death and sexual slavery too.”
Good point. The Mexican government always blames the USA for ALL of their problems. They say that the USA is a nation of drug addicts who sell automatic weapons, grenades, and anti tank weapons on street corners. I would not be suprised if the human smuggling and MANY OTHER CRIMES bring more money to Mexico than drugs. Screw them!
Another “word choice” to consider, you may hear illegal aliens called “undocumented workers”.
Except they are not undocumented. They obtain FALSIFIED documentation (driver’s licenses, voter registration, social security numbers, etc).
Identity theft is an increasing problem in this country and clearly plenty of politicians and law enforcement agents believe we can “absorb” a wave of stolen identities just as we can “aborb” a terrorist attack.
Works for me.
It was so easy for Ted Kennedy to advocate unfettered immigration from the luxury of his lily-white suburban Boston home or his enclave in Hyannis Port. He never had to pay the cost in such protected environments.
With apologies to Indian (feather not dot) FReepers, I once saw a pithy statement to the effect of:
"The Indians get more noble the further away you get."
As for the Mexicans deluging Texas and other Southwestern states, my colleagues in the upper midwest (where the county population breakouts are largely in the 95% white range) just can't seem to understand why we Texans are rightfully concerned about the changing face of our state.
Perhaps it is because stolen ID has a hidden side which never gets reported in proper prespective because it doesn’t show up on credit card receipts. ID theft is at the heart of illicit political contributions, as the hundreds of millions ‘donated’ to Obama’s campaign in ‘08 and the DNC coffers showed, without being prosecuted at all!
This country sucks.
Toto, i think we're not in America anymore.
Mr President, any comment regarding these murders??? Sir??? Hello???
Residents say they didn't think it would become a reality.
everyone I guess except this lady that was found
One woman who wanted to conceal her identity says witnessing a crime...could be very dangerous. "If an innocent family would have been passing by and seen that they would have been the next target," said one woman. She worries about future violence and is considering moving out of the Valley.
so, why the sneaking around the facts?
It is past time to call Obama’s bluff. the Governor of Texas should file an official request stating that there is imminent danger of invasion and under Article I Section 10 the State of Texas will take all appropriate steps to defend itself unless the Federal government effectively defends the border against invasion within 5 days.
That's an excellent idea in my estimation and I'd really like to see it happen!
With the election just weeks away, I think it would certainly galvanize support for Rick Perry. Anyone (including some Republicans who justifiably question Perry's Conservative credentials) would find it impossible to cast a ballot for Bill White.
SOLUTION: Landmine the borders.
Easy, effective, cost efficient.... sort of warming up to the idea.
Liberty and this nation succeeded because PROPERTY rights were the first and foremost protection. It will fail, as every nation who couldnt/wouldnt protect its borders, because that protection has been abandoned by those in the know of both parties. From planting and burning our national forests and parks to squatting in peoples houses (this crappola happens along the border all the time! Ask Sue Krentz...oh, thats right, shes trying to stay alive because of this same invasion.)

A MUST read!.
This is Texas.
All that Governor “Rick” would have to say is “Help” and he could have 500,000 men who are already armed men who would go to the border. Drop of a hat. Line in the sand. All it would take.
Controlling it? That is another thing.
Hey Fossil, pick me up on your way down. I need to buy some more ammo though. Spent the whole day at the range yesterday tweeking scopes and sights, I’m good.
I’m glad you’re prepared. And what I said could actually happen. It is the very nature of the beast here, as you know.
Our national parks are NOT OURS.
I would bet we could assemble one hell of a caravan!
(There seemed to be some kind of a border problem yesterday......what happened?)
Yes. It has been a long time since a serious border crossing was undertaken. Of course it is silly for the citizens to even think about this stuff when we have the folks at Ft. Hood and Dyes AFB who know how to do the job. There is this little problem of a Commander in Chief who intends to destroy the U.S. and the military.
Better approach, we will deal with him first. Remember, November is Coming. And that is the first wave.
Agreed. First the illegal in the white house, then, the illegals from across the border.
I couldn’t agree more with Fossil, but I’m still going to buy more ammo.
A few month ago the local LEO brought down 2 cartel safe houses within a couple of mile of my house. I’m locked and loaded. We will not be sheep.
What will it take to get a serious reaction out of any state or federal government official?
Just curious. How many Americans have to die? 10? 100? 1000? 10,000? 100,000? How many?
I recently visited San Antonio and I think TX is gone. There are so many Mexicans there, I thought I was in Mexico.
The problem is that we are too kind to everyone. Latin America has got to be laughing their a$$ off at us.
In a town an hour or so from Dallas, I was told that when the law comes around, a girl in the court house warns all the illegals.
They work for your government, they teach your kids the pledge of allegiance to Mexico in spanish. What do we expect.
Try getting e-verify passed in your state. Run for state gov. if you can. A spontaneous decent on the border, by all you guys, would be impressive.
Its too bad all of this is on our border states, but it is.
Progressive socialism is destroying this once great nation from within!!
Be Ever Vigilant!!
from what I read the Texas law enforcement and otherwise military forces have already been preparing to do that.
The problem with this kind of invasion is we ain’t got no idea where they are or when they will hit us.
There simply ain’t enough men in Texas to protect the entire Texas border. It might surprise you to learn that cause of the winding and twisting of the Rio Grand River Texas has the bulk of the border with Mexico.
Worse still we can’t fence off the Rio grand cause thats a vital water supply for the area(its a desert!). Instead we MUST rely upon active defenses. This means 2 things:
1: Man power.
2: Texans in the border area must be hardy.
The one advantage we have In Texas is its a bit more difficult to cross a river then it is to simply walk across.
But at many times and points, the Rio Grande can run dry.
Texas can defend herself, but the enemy will not make it that easy, they will hit us and they will run back to Mexico and hide where we can’t chase em. In the old Days Texas would go after em anyway. (One of the Historic Rolls of the Texas Rangers) But that will get Texas into a lot of trouble in Washington today.
Yes, at least until after Nov. 2nd.
I agree, I have lived in South Texas my whole life and know many law abiding citizens that have migrated from Mexico, but I am sick of the violence. For the last 5 years Mexicans have been trying to blow up Falcon dam which would leave thousands of Texans without water. Also, now a man has been killed on Falcon Lake.
Sooner or later Texans and other Americans on the border both are going to have to wake up and realize that this is the beginning of war! The cartels are becoming more powerful than the Mexican government.
Off-topic PING to TTC list.
It will take a massacre of a family so hideous in result that the MSM won’t be able to ignore it.
The people who were assassinated were more than likely deeply involved, up to their necks, in the drug trade. The drug cartels aren’t going to go after people who aren’t involved in their business.
Are you saying that couple on jet skis were involved in drug dealing with Mexican cartels?
Thanks for the ping!
Did you notice where this article is from? BROWNSVILLE not Falcon Lake. It is about two men who were assassinated, not a couple on jet skis.
