Anyone dumb enough to go to Mexico deserves to have their head cut off.

Harlingen has more winter tourist this year than last. They may not be going to Mexico, but they are still flocking to the Valley where the living is cheaper.

I just happened to catch that show that has the cops on the beach there. They are like the gestapo. The big tough cops arresting girls because they walked away from them.
