US-Mexico border tightened on drug cartel warning

EL PASO, Texas - Security is being heightened along the southern U.S. border because of a threat that warring Mexican cartels may send hit men into the United States, authorities said Monday.

Law enforcement officials would not discuss specific security measures being taken at the ports of entry, along the border or in the city of El Paso.

...

Drug cartel violence has claimed thousands of lives in Mexico this year. Nearly 800 people have been killed in Ciudad Juarez, a hardscrabble city of about 1.3 million people across the Rio Grande from El Paso.

The cartels, battling one another and the Mexican government for supremacy and control of lucrative drug and human smuggling routes, have become brazen in their attacks in recent months.

In Juarez this month, masked gunmen stormed a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center and killed eight people. Days later, Red Cross workers stopped treating gunshot victims for several hours after receiving death threats over Red Cross radios. The Red Cross had already stopped responding to emergency calls after 10 p.m. because of security concerns.

Besides illegal immigrants, what does Mexico provide the US?

Yeah, it's an asinine comment, but because they don't give us a great deal of "resources", they won't get the media attention necessary.

Is it terrorism? Absolutely! It's a crying shame we won't nearly as much about it. Now, if we had a military presence in Mexico getting killed over this, maybe we'd see much more. But our goverment would then be under greater pressure to get out of Mexico, shore up our borders and prevent more illegal aliens from entering the US.

It's a sad vicious cycle that we won't see an end of in our life times without some form of severe action; either by them, by us, or by God/Allah or whichever being you choose to worship.
