Residents of a small New Mexico border town woke Wednesday to the sounds of helicopters, bangs and screaming as federal and local agents conducted an early morning sweep on at least two homes.

Anthony police spokeswoman Mary Hall said a team of local and federal law enforcement agents, including SWAT teams, served several warrants around town before dawn. She said she did not know what type of warrants were served or any of the targets.

They had warrants as the article says. This is near El Paso and Nuevo Laredo and could be a big bust.

This is when we need locals on the ground for intel. I wish it was narco-terrorists, but I’m afraid they’re after the law-abiding. Anyone in Canutillo?

None, but a bunch of scorpions were trampled.

Pretty desolate area out there.

No they don’t need warrants...didn’t you see CBS “News” last week...maybe it was “SUNDAY MORNING”...this part of the country doesn’t really belong to us...we “stole” it from Mexico in 1846...so it’s theirs, not ours...the Constitution doesn’t apply in Mexico.

Amish have a difficult time blending in with the local gentry. Their beards are too neatly trimmed, and their fake tattoos aren't very good.

El Paso is 20 miles closer to Mexicali California than it is to Laredo or Nuevo Laredo.

Anthony, TX/NM is over 600 miles from Nuevo Laredo. Were you thinking of Juarez?

That’s similar to saying something that happened in Washington DC might be geographically related to things happening in Nashville Tennessee.

And when discussing Alaska, it just gets ridiculous to think of the size. Yet, are any two states more hated, dismissed, and disrespected by the overgrown city sized states back east? They are like counties that got out of hand.

You are right on. Some of the western counties are bigger than CT and RI, for instance. LOL

With her comfort speaking from that level of knowledge, she could be the White House spokeswoman within a year.

Amish jalapeno smugglers most likely. The worst kind...

Anthony, TX is home to the Old El Paso plant. And the west side of the river (New Mexico) is one long field of peppers.

That's good to know. I was concerned they might've raided Rosa's.

Rosa’s was actually pretty close to Anthony. A lot closer to Anthony than Laredo ;)
