It’s tragic that people who do the right thing always seem to wind up with the short end of the stick.

Wow — her injuries from those previous attacks were horrifying and yet the people of Mexico still did not elect her to their Congress. Being a member may have provided her with a little more protection.

Shame on those cowards. Maybe the people down there deserve their fate.

The only way to effectively combat this is with a full scale military operation. This woman showed more courage than most of our elected politicians put together. Think of her, and then think of a US General exchanging 20-30,000 emails with Jill Kelley.

If you live down here in South Texas those values have been here since “the great society” was formed by Johnson.

From that point it has been downhill ever since.

We don’t live in Texas, we live in Texico.

A couple of our families are planning an all inclusive trip in 7 months. Mexico has many but they will NEVER see a dime of our money. I said no way to Mexico....many other safer spots to visit.

Import 50 million Mexicans into the US and you will have 50 million Mexicans - not 50 million new Americans. The creation of a Mexican province within the US has prevented assimilation as the Dems and Republicans try to outdo each other in appeasing the newcomers. In Southern California and the other border states, you do not have to learn English for purposes of education, medical care and increasingly for work. America cannot survive with a nation within a nation.

There are over 33 million Americans of Mexican descent in the US. This does not include the 10 to 20 million illegals. There are likely many more Americans with some element of Mexican heritage who do not identify themselves as such on the census. I think the demography war is already lost.

Mexican values..coming soon to a city near you.

The case can be made that the values of the american consumer of the cartels illegal drugs is what drives the trade...

Classic case of cartels filling a market void...

I'm still on the fence whether all out war (not the fake WOD we have today) on illegal drugs coming over the border or decriminalization is the best solution...

Based on the success of ballot initiatives to smoke dope...probably decriminalization is coming...

I agree. But isn't it funny that too many FReepers who are pro-drug think the solution is to declare these drugs as legal. Believe it or not, they actually think that if drugs were legal, the violence would all just magically disappear.

You’re absolutely right! I mean, just take a look at alcohol and Prohibition. Legalizing alcohol after Prohibition didn’t do one thing to stop the violence related to bootlegging. I’m sick of hearing Tommy guns clattering in the streets as the rum runners battle over their turf...

I have tried to explain that for over 10 years to others, and I get the deer in the headlights look.

I lived in So Calif from 1964 to 1993. One reason I left was because I no longer felt safe. Particularly after dark, but en in daylight.

Letting these people come to America will lead to a massive war over jobs, housing, and other new laws which are favorable to the illegals in their massive emmigration to here. Americans have a right to protect themselves, their property & their jobs, etc. mexicans don’t want to recognise any such thoughts, as they live moment to moment.

Yours is a straw man argument.

Bootleggers moved on. To drugs, gambling, prostitution and worse. If you don’t hear or see the violence, then pull your head out.

Change the law, first, then use if you want to. Until then you are as much of the problem as the cartels.

If you use before changing the law then you are funding and supporting the most brutal, bloodthirsty and despicable criminals and share in the blame for the death and destruction of the druggies and their suppliers.

My son, a Border Patrol Agent, had many run in with cartels, too include Mexican Army soldiers on the payroll of the cartels. Been ambushed and injured, all by druggies coming north. So, like I said, if you want to use, legalize first otherwise you are supporting those that attack (and sometimes kill), our citizens, from Boarder Patrol Agents to innocent civilians on the street.

While I do not personally see Mexican drug gang-related violence where I live, I absolutely recognize that it exists and deplore it.

I agree that criminals have ditched bootlegging in favor of more profitable activities. You should ask yourself: what do these activities all have in common that makes them so lucrative?

Who said anything about wanting to use? I am in favor of repealing the laws in order to combat social effects, not so I can use. I also don’t smoke, but I’m opposed to laws against public smoking. Just because someone opposes restrictive laws in the name of freedom doesn’t mean that opposition is based on self-interest.

She was elected mayor of Tiquicheo in 2008 and served until 2011. During that time she defected from the Institutional Revolutionary party to the left-wing Democratic Revolution party.

I thought this was interesting. I always thought the far left were tied to the drug cartels.

A good friend of mine moved to a small town just south east of Mexico City. According to them, “it’s perfectly safe, there are guards every where”.

They wonder why we refuse to come and visit them. I wonder if the actually get any of the local news.

You do realize that organized crime was into the aforementioned activities BEFORE they were into bootlegging, right? You do also know they made more money from booze AFTER Prohibition than during, right? You do understand that gangland killing has gone on long after Prohibition ended, right?

Please provide a citation for your claim that criminals make more money from illegal liquor sales now than they did during Prohibition. This defies common sense. When was the last time you bought an illegally sold beer?

I won’t, because I made no such assertion. However, I can easily site mafia killing after 1933. Here’s a few:

“Bugsy” Siegel June 20, 1947

Albert Anastasia October 25, 1957

Joseph Colombo June 28, 1971

Joey Gallo April 7, 1972

Jimmy Hoffa July 30, 1975

Carmine Galante July 12, 1979

Paul “Big Paulie” Castellano December 16, 1985

Nicholas Guido December 25, 1986

Fred Weiss September 11, 1989

Anthony DiLapi February 4, 1990

Nicholas “Nicky Black” Grancio January 7, 1992

Then there were the two Sicilian Mafia wars in the 1960s and 1980s. The most lucrative racket for them in the 1970s was cigarette smuggling, not drugs.

I did not say that legalizing drugs would eliminate gang violence; rather, I said that legalizing drugs would eliminate gang violence over illegal drug sales, just like ending Prohibition ended gang violence over illegal alcohol sales.

As I understand it, tobacco smuggling is becoming a racket again in New York due to punishing taxes applied to tobacco. Yet another example of inadvertent creation of crime and undesirable social effects by government policy.
