Austin TX is now becoming a major hub for the Mexican cartel and Austin is NOT a border town.

The Fed has a deaf ear to requests for help in securing the border.

You know how to spot a fake? The FBI doesn't release these kinds of data stats. If you go to the FBI UCR site, 'illegal' is not one of the data categories that are tracked or monitored.

Also, when you scroll all the way down to the author of the story, it's not a 'news' organization...it's a personal "blog" of some sort by Angela Russell who is a bookkeeper and writes her own personal news blog.

Not even a half-hearted decent try on the OP's part. Complete BS.

Austin is NOT becoming a major hub for the Mexican cartel, that is complete and utter nonsense.

They could do that with the passport. Sure.

yea, these BS websites and blogs just spout whatever they want saying it is from FBI, DEA, Homeland Security, whatever.

But they can never show the original reports where the BS supposedly comes from. Go figure.

Obviously not a big concern for their audience.

Really. First of all, posting a naked link as an OP was suppsoedly made a violation of the ToS. And then this one is to an article posted on some "contributor" powered site that includes no sourcing of its claims at all. Is there a lower rung on the reliability ladder that that?

This parrots a 3 year old post on City-Data with identical stats. There was no backup source for these wild 95% allegations then and there is none now. Please provide a link

The total drop was 13 percent.
Tell that to the family of the rancher that was recently killed.
