 The activity of foreign paid assassins in Sinaloa is investigated

Authorities opined that the manner of execution of four people in Mazatlan, who were decapitated, is a bit unusual for the area.  Judicial authorities do not discard that the perpetrators of the beheadings of four men near Mazatlan might be Mexicans residing outside the country.

 U.S. resumes repatriation flights for Mexicans

For the sixth consecutive year, the Department of Homeland Security will repatriate illegal Mexican immigrants from Tucson, Arizona to Mexico City.  The flights are one measure to discourage illegal entries into the U.S. and keep the aliens from the dangerous practice of traversing the deserts in 100 degree weather.

 The flights leave twice daily from Tucson to Mexico City, far from the border towns where they would more likely be contacted by smugglers to attempt entry.  The flights began last Saturday and will continue to September 28.

 Colombia asks Hugo Chaves to not sow more hate on the Continent

At a plenary meeting of the OAS (OEM), Luis Alonzo Hoyos, the Colombian Ambassador made a “most energetic protest” of the “interventionist modus operandi” of the Venezuelan president in the internal affairs of his country.  According to Hoyos, Chavez’ plan violates the principals of the UN and the OAS.  Venezuela’s retort came immediately: 

The Venezuelan ambassador said that unfortunately there are countries that are addicted to war and unable to resolve their social problems; and all they do is develop the politics of war.  Every time we denounce this, the marvelous propaganda apparatus, driven by the primary drug producer in the world, mobilizes to accuse Venezuela of being a “narcostate.”

 The Colombian ambassador had previously stated at an OAS meeting in Washington, D.C. that Colombia wishes that Chavez would work jointly to solve problems on the continent, respecting the differences and not sowing hate and intervening/interfering in Colombia’s affairs.   

Hoyos reprimanded and chided Chavez for his unseemly and counterproductive conduct in his dealings with other countries, especially Colombia.  He criticized Chavez’ silencing of the press and other media to stifle freedom of expression.  Hoyos made an eloquent plea for mutual efforts in developing the resources of the countries on the continent.

When their services are needed, they are called to a specific location, supplied with weapons and instructed what to do.
