Here's an update on the hospital situation in Texas.

El Paso County officials believe the authorization that allows wounded Mexican law-enforcement agents to cross the international bridges to seek medical treatment is taking place at the federal level, and that they should be informed about the decisions.

This has to stop. The Mexican police officer was admitted to Thomason on Friday and discharged on Monday. Sorry, but I find it difficult to believe that he had life threatening injuries that could ONLY be treated in a level one trauma hospital if he recovered that quickly. This is nonsense. There are hospitals in Juarez, there is no reason he had to come here. It is simply unfair to dump the problems of providing security for him on the community of El Paso. I believe there is a school not too far from Thomason, people there were concerned about their children's safety the first time the place went on lockdown a few months ago. The hospital's mission is to serve the citizens of El Paso. This lockdown business is basically depriving them of a community hospital. If your child cuts his head, how eager are his parents supposed to be to take him to the ER if there is this security issue? And all this has to be real reassuring to women in late pregnancy who are planning to deliver at Thomason. Frankly, I'd be trying to find someplace else that would take me.

You noticed that too. They have constantly said that the people that they treat from Mexico in that hospital are almost on their deathbeds, and yet, one will read within a day or so how they have been or are being released.

You have to understand that El Paso is basically an extension of Juarez anymore. It ios a shame but from what I have seen there, when I visited my son in the Army, that place is nothing but Mexicans. I realize that there are Americans that live there, but the Mexicans have completely taken over that city. No matter where I went to eat, people were speaking Spanish and could barely, if at all, speak English in America, and of course would get upset if one did not speak Spanish. Luckily we were ok when it came to language but it makes me sick that much of the southwest is so Mexico.

I was stationed at Ft Bliss in El Paso in the 70's. English was the majority language spoken in every place I went. Most Mexican Americans in El Paso primary language was english. There were no gangs, grafitti, signs in spanish, and very few barrios. El Paso's Anglo population was probably 60%. I agree Juarez has taken over El Paso for the worst.

Oh yeah, it was a nice city back in those days but now that the Mexicans have taken over, and I mean Mexicans and not Americans, it is sh**hole and a terrible place to live.

El Paso will have a hard time luring non bilingual educated Americans to El Paso. El Paso's over abundance of low skilled labor also keeps the wages low.

Yes, you are quite right. It is too bad too. Las Cruces is in the same boat though. It is a shame really.

They want us to protect them while the person that ran over a border patrol agent with a Hummer and killed him was let loose by Mexican authorities.
Nice neighbors we have.

And said BP agent was an American whose family hailed from Mexico.
