Seems like only yesterday that we were talking about an American being thrown in jail on a trumped-up drug charge. Actually, it was. News from Mexico City today is about a mass kidnapping. 11 people kidnapped from a bar in broad daylight, a half block from the city’s main boulevard, and a few blocks from police headquarters. Not far from where the grandson of Malcom X was murdered a few weeks ago over a phony bar tab.
And if you think the corruption and criminal drug related activity is limited to Mexico, you’d be wrong. It’s migrating into cities all over the United States as well. Think about that the next time you hear Secretary of Homeland Security Janet ‘Big Sis’ Napolitano say how our border with Mexico has never been more secure. I guess she can say that when, on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the most secure, the protection level is 3. That’s good news. It could be worse. By 2. It sounds better than saying we’ve got a long way to go before it is really secure. Of course she’ll never say that.
Did you know that the State Department website has Mexico on their Travel Warning Advisory? Since November of 2012? According to their list, it is the most dangerous country in the Western Hemisphere.
With the administration in such a rush to pass “comprehensive immigration reform” legislation crafted behind closed doors, with only eight percent of our representatives (Gang of 8), I can see a back-door opening up for when that fails. And I hope it does fail. Mexico is so corrupt and dangerous that I wouldn’t put it past this administration to simply grant asylum to anyone running across the border.
