Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon will testify before Congress next week about how border violence has impacted public safety in Phoenix.

The mayor is scheduled to speak at 2 p.m. on Tuesday before House Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies.

Gordon's trip to Washington comes as deadly drug violence surges in Mexico. More than 6,000 people died in drug-related violence in Mexico in 2008, more than double the number from the previous year. Homeland Security SecretaryJanet Napolitano, Arizona's former governor, plans to send more than 100 federal agents to the border to help combat the wave of violence.
While crime is down overall in Phoenix, Gordon said, the majority of the city's violent crime is related to human smuggling and drug violence. That situation could become worse if the federal government doesn't take a stronger role, he said.

I can see it coming. I have no doubt the idiots in our government will somehow manage to give amnesty to hundreds of drug cartel members masquerading as orphaned children from mexico.

More specifically, the idiot career Democratic politicians, who now control Congress, will try to give amnesty to hundreds of drug cartel members masquerading as orphaned children from Mexico but future Democratic voters. The upside for the career Democratic politicians is that the amnestied drug cartel members will still be future Democratic voters.

Interesting that Gordon is now 'concerned' about the illegal alien problem.............unless he is starting to realize that his ass is now on the line.

Read that illegals are a net liability with the growing numbers of Americans now unemployed here in especially the city of Phoenix.

How will this affect the rather 'stormy' relationship between Mayor Gordon and his flamboyant neighbor, Sheriff Joe Arpaio?....wasn't Gordon one of Arapaio's loudest critics? How do Arpaio's 'sweeps' impact Gordon's 'violent smugglers'?...
