The new $66 million, four-story facility will employ about 300 people. It includes 109 service windows where Mexican immigrant visas and American border crossing cards and travel documents will be processed. It is the largest U.S. consulate in the world.

Antonio O. Garza Jr., U.S. ambassador to Mexico and the keynote speaker for the event, said the impressive consulate was overdue and built in Juarez because of the $1 billion in trade and the more than a million people who cross the border. He said one of his constant goals as an ambassador has been to make sure people in Washington and Mexico understand border issues.


World's largest U.S. consulate opens across border from Fort Bliss

We need a Berlin style wall, yesterday.

It's nothing but an A&A Depot -- an aiding and abetting facility for illegal aliens. Why don't they cut the crap, and call it what it really is.

More squandering of our taxes. Thatís money that could be used to improve our pathetic public school systems that are bursting at the seams from millions of illegal aliens and anchor babies.

No, but it might keep out illegals.

All the illegals could leave, but Mexico will always be our neighbour.

I have no problem with Mexico being our neighbor, as long as they keep their kids in their own yard.

As my wise grandfather used to say. Strong fences make for good neighbors...
Lived to be 102 years old and he was the wisest man I have ever known. On this I'll take his wisdom anyday.

Did it keep East Germans out of West Germany? No...many made it over and many more died trying...While we are at it why don't we get Nazi styled concentration camps? How about we ship all illegals to Cuba? Sounds ridiculous...doesn't it?

The USA is a sovereign nation. We have every right to build a wall, a fence, a moat, or anything necessary to protect this country from invading foreigners.

Why donít you stop the melodrama? No one has remotely suggested concentration camps, and you know it.

Mexico drug cartels send message of chaos, death

Dec. 4, 2008 11:48 AM
Washington Post

MEXICO CITY - The death squads of the drug cartels are killing in spectacularly gruesome ways, using the violence as a language to deliver a message to society.

Increasingly, bodies show unmistakable signs of torture. Videos of executions are posted on the Internet, as taunts, as warnings. Corpses are dumped on playgrounds, with neatly printed notes beside them. And very often, the heads have been removed.

When someone rolled five heads onto the dance floor in a cantina in Michoacan state two years ago, even the most hardened Mexicans were shocked. Now ritual mutilations are routine. In the border city of Tijuana, 37 people were slain over the weekend, including four children. Nine of the adults were decapitated, including three police officers whose badges were stuffed in their mouths.

These are not criminals who shoot you and run away. No, they take you away and tear you apart. And then? Then they very calmly dump you wherever they like. That is what is so terrifying."

Mexico drug cartels send message of chaos, death
These barbarians are unbelievable.
