Old news. This has been going on for decades. As Mexico struggles with the drug lords for control, the violence has gotten substantially worse.
American citizens are being kidnapped in Laredo and taken across the border by drug lords where they are often held for ransom and, sometimes, murdered. The State Department finally had to issue a travel warning about Mexico a year or two ago because the crime and violence have gotten so bad.
This is the stuff that Bush, Fox and Claderon DON’T want you to know. I live within 150 miles of the Texas-Mexico border and used to love going to the border towns. However, because of the crime and the violence, I refuse to go.
Too bad, too!! I used to really enjoy it.
I am quite familiar with all of this too.
I live in the San Diego area...
