The state legislature has officially renamed Ciudad Juarez to Heroica Ciudad Juarez - to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the May 8, 1911 Second Battle of Juarez where Madero defeated dictator Porfirio Diaz's troops.

I suppose it's the least the government could do - really - it is the least they could do. Locals aren't impressed and the daily killings continue.

There is story about the Revolution where Indians were warned that they should move because the Battle of Torreon was about to start. They replied "But this is where we always stand to watch the Battle of Torreon".

Edit- I didn't mean this to be in "Illegal immigration"

Would you mind explaining how this pertains to illegal immigration?

Well about 120,000 or more of these heroic people have fled Juarez and now live north of the border, a great number of them have come illegally. Not a problem for them though. The laws on immigration are not enforced.

I am actually shocked more people from SOB have not taken up residence here in the US considering there is zero interior INS enforcement.

Did you read his reasoning? I agree with him. If the people in Juarez were so brave they would stand up against the cartels and corruption in the government. I finished watching a Mexican movie called El Invierno, that was made no more than two years ago. And it had to do with the drug war. Too many Mexican's are apathetic or too lazy to do anything for the good of their country.

Well the ones who stay there and aren't working for the cartels are at least trying.

The truth is many Mexicans love their country and also the homicide rates in many Mexican cities (not on the border) are quite low.

And the statement in red means what to me? I'm an American and this is America, so Mexicans are apathetic and lazy, what else is new?

Don't care how heart warming the OP is, so a foreign country decides to rename one of their cities, so what?

These are the people who flout my countries laws, you think I give a crap about them or what they do in their country?

Maybe if the OP was posted in the Mexican forum it would have elicited the responses you want to read... but here? LMAO
