Families, businesses flee Juárez for U.S. pastures | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Latest News

"...These days, as drug cartel-fueled violence pushes a new wave of emigrants northward, history seems to be repeating itself – with one striking difference.

"This time, the newcomers are settling everywhere, the West, Eastside, Upper Valley, Horizon City," said Sáenz, a literature professor at the University of Texas at El Paso. "It's not just Sunset Heights anymore, but everywhere."

When will this insanity end? Oh, that’s right, our borders are now “more secure.”

They aren’t escaping the carnage. The carnage has moved here as well. Now that the drug cartels have setup shop in major cities, we can expect the same decapitations and mutilations prevalent in Mexico. Yet, it’s somehow racist and xenophobic to want our borders secured.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mexican drug cartels are shipping more than massive quantities of drugs north of the border. Increasingly, they're also exporting bloody mayhem.

“At least they didn’t put the gun in the baby’s mouth like we’ve seen before,” Sergeant Azuelo said. That same afternoon this month, his squad was called to the scene of another home invasion, one involving the abduction of a 14-year-old boy.

This city, an hour’s drive north of the Mexican border, is coping with a wave of drug crime the police suspect is tied to the bloody battles between Mexico’s drug cartels and the efforts to stamp them out.

Thank you for saying this as it is so apparant our government by "joining forces" with Mexico is merely paving a path for illegal aliens to declare it unsafe to return to mexico. I hate having someone insult my intelligence by thinking we don't notice.

Bingo! I knew as soon as they started reporting on the violence in Mexico, it was part of their strategy. This has been commonplace in Mexico for years, but suddenly it’s now a problem. How can we possibly not legalize millions while conditions are so perilous in Mexico?

I guess Mexicans are hoping to leverage their 'plight' into qualifying for asylum like Cubans can. All they are doing is bringing their Juarez lifestyle north to El Paso.

For a Country that has supposedly kicked them to the curb, is too violent to return to there sure is a lot of devotion to that hell hole.

And i agree with you. Exactly as you say paving the path for illegal ailens to declare there unsafe return back to their home Country. Yes we notice, do they think we would not? come on now. I sometimes think they think we don't.

What the USA needs to do is borrow a page from Australia: detain said 'asylum seekers' in detention camps and consider their cases one by one--------that policy would discourage all but the truly scared ones.

Of course they could seek safer cities in Mexico but they can't get the USA refugee assistance handouts that way or the food stamps. And many of these "refugees" are caught up in the cartel stuff themselves and see a short hop over the border as a great way to avoid retaliation from enemies they've made AND they can continue controlling their cartel businesses.
