There are limits to how far they’ll go. For one thing, American prisons are grim places compared to Mexican ones, which are run by the inmates as low-rent malls where anything ranging from drugs to women can be purchased (watch Mel Gibson’s Get the Gringo to get some of the flavor). For another, it’s a lot harder (actually, well nigh impossible) to buy American public officials to assist in murdering other public officials. And then there’s the existence of capital punishment in the US, vs its absence in Mexico.
When these cartels start to think they can begin offing American judges and mayors, congressmen etc like they do south of the border, is when we’ll finally get politicians serious about border control. When the thug Coulter they allow to pour over are borders starts to infringe on their lily white perfect expensive lives, then something will be done to control it.
Newsflash for you, Cartel people live pretty good in our prisons as well...money and power talk here as well.
If you think there are limits to what the Cartels will do you are sadly mistaken. They will do the same here that they do in Mexico- who is going to stop them? How many Cartel members do you think are about to get amnesty?
Our authorities can and are bought by Cartels, have been for years near the border- they are growing and branching out, this will spread like wildfire just as it did in Mexico.
If you think not, just watch.
