SAN DIEGO - The drug violence that has left about 4,000 people dead this year in Mexico is spreading deep into the United States, leaving a trail of slayings, kidnappings, and other crimes in at least 195 cities as far afield as Atlanta, Boston, Seattle, and Honolulu, according to federal authorities.

The involvement of the top four Mexican drug-trafficking organizations in distribution and money-laundering on US soil has brought a war once dismissed as a foreign affair to the doorstep of local communities.

Residents of a quiet subdivision in Lilburn, Ga., an Atlanta suburb, awoke to the transborder crime wave in July, when a brigade of well-armored federal and state police officers surrounded a two-story colonial home, ordered neighbors to lock their doors, and flushed out three men described as members of a Mexican drug cartel. One was captured after he tried to slip down a storm drain. Another was caught in the ivy in Pete Bogerd's backyard. He lives two doors up and is president of the neighborhood association.

Well; I live the Phx area and we are starting to have problems with those violent criminal gangs from SOB.

All the more reason to close/lock our southern border with up to and including military force.

I watched a documentary outlining the contents of this article on the history channel last night. They are here by the thousands and have been allowed to branch out all across the US. They interviewed a drug cartel teenaged hit man (nuttier than a fruitcake) who crossed the US border and turned himself in because the Zetas had a hit out on him. He admitted committing a multitude of gruesome murders in Mexico. They should have sent his worthless crazy behind back across the border instead of wasting our tax dollars to feed and house him in safety.

It's past time for the Berlin style wall.

Interesting timeline of events:

Cowards who kill. He was 12 years old when they recruited him. During the interview he was smiling and very proud as he bragged about those he had decapitated, electrocuted and shot in the head at point blank range.

Yet he was too much of a chicken_hit to die in the same manner. He now resides in the safety of isolation at the expense of our tax dollars.

Truer words. If we treated them at least as poorly as the country they hail from, they would stop coming. Those who are here would self deport, saving billions of man hours and tax dollars all of which are being wasted because our border is essentially a revolving door with a welcome mat.

The only problem is us Americans (of any race/ethnicity) would have to borrow a few pages from the White supremacist organizations of 50 years ago to put the fear of God into the illegals. Speaking for just myself: I flat refuse to copy/paste Bull Connor methods in Selma ca. 1965.

The above stated: enact and enforce employers sanctions laws similar to Arizona and Oklahoma, do away with birthright citizenship (if both parents are here illegally) and simply use 'nusiance' (sp) laws against anybody blasting their stereos, etc.
