MONTERREY, MexicoFederal authorities in Mexico are investigating a mass murder after 49 mutilated bodies were dumped on highway leading to the Texas border. Investigators say identifying the victims will be difficult since the bodies were missing their heads, hands and feet.
These days the risky road north to the Texas border is more dangerous than ever but young immigrants still make the trip.
Texas Governor Rick Perry sent a letter to President Obama complaining the state is coping with a surge in illegal immigrants who are minors and traveling alone.

So how many legal migrants die in their attempt to cross the border?
I’m guessing, not many.
Oh, these guys will just claim to be eligible for Rubio’s Dream Act. It’ll be heartwarming.
Just wait until it starts occurring on our northern border.
They should all be directed to Kalipornia.
Why don’t they just put a sign on the border:
IDIOTA! NO TAJABO AQUI! OBAMA PRESIDENTE!
And the libs claim that if pot and drugs were legal this wouldn’t happen.
Besides blaming Americans, what are Mexican authorities doing about the deaths of these people who were killed an mutilated.
Mexico is not a country, it’s a criminal enterprise.
Maybe they should just stay home.
Where they should be shot.
There is one thing we’re all forgetting. These people come here wanting to work. While millions of our citizens don’t want to work. I say we work out a trade.
BTW...Are they making them out to be heroes?
I wonder how many victims were beheaded by machetes given to them by Eric Holder....
It is said, we can't afford to send all illegals home. I say we can't afford to keep on keeping them.
The just want to do jobs that American won’t. Like attempting to kill the police. sarc..
