More than 3,000 families have fled Ciudad Juarez for the United States this year, a border expert said last week, following a deadly attack on a mass in a drug rehabilitation center in which gunmen killed nine people.

At least one of those 3,000 families getting out of Dodge are relatives of our Mach50.

I am anti illegal immigration; but many of these folks may qualify as political refugees.

Let what is occurring serve as a warning to both the USA and Mexico.

I doubt any of the white mex are suffering from these drug wars

In fact it is probably keeping a lot of them employed in like say high ranking police positions, ammo wholesaler execs, coroners, news reporters, attorneys

the underworld drives a large part of the world's economy

The worst thing we can do is allow even more of the so-called moderates to pack up and leave. You might as well kiss any chance for improvement or eventual stability good-bye.

Instead of fleeing, these people need to save their country. Also most of those who are in fear were involved in drug trafficking or associated with the drug cartels in some way.

The violence will simply follow them.
