Thursday, 1/28/10

From three different Mexican newspapers, three different tales of savagery:

Cambio de Michoacán (Morelia, Michoacán) 1/27/10

A public employee was at his job, sweeping the streets, and came across a cardboard box left right next to the “carnitas” [barbecued pork] stands on the main plaza at Quiroga, Michoacán. There was a human head in the box. “Municipal authorities reported that the rest of the body was found later.”

Critica (Hermosillo, Sonora) 1/27/10

In Nogales, Sonora [right across the border from Nogales, AZ, and some 60 mi. south of Tucson, AZ, as the crow flies] : an abandoned sedan with no license plate. In the trunk: the bodies of two men. Their heads had been cut off. Later, elsewhere in Nogales, two human heads were found “in a blue plastic box.”

El Debate (Culiacan, Sinaloa) 1/27/10

A phone call to state police in Sinaloa resulted in the finding of a blue canvas bag along a highway near Angostura, Sinaloa. Inside was the body of yet another decapitated man. Some fifteen feet away there was an ice chest, with a human head inside. And a body was found in Mazatlan; this victim had his hands tied with a rope behind his back. He had been hung by the neck from a highway bridge.

El Siglo de Torreon (Torreon, Coahuila) 1/27/10

Executions by the thousands

The head of Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission reported that in 2009 there were 8 thousand execution style assassinations in Mexico attributed to organized crime. He cited impunity as a major factor, given that out of every 100 crimes, only 2 persons end up jailed, and added that there is little incentive in Mexico to report crime.

El Universal (Mexico City) 1/27/10

Fear rules in Mexico

Tijuana was known as the city of vice, prostitution and liquor, and that paled in comparison with what happened after the 90’s.The director of the Bi-National Center for Human Rights in Tijuana, Victor Clark Alfaro, says, ”Now, living in Tijuana is like being a character in a police novel. You get used to living in fear but you are not resigned, on the contrary, you start having anxiety problems. You change your daily habits and you become distrustful.” Data from the 2009 “Sixth National Poll” about insecurity reveal that, in Ciudad Juarez, Acapulco and Tijuana, between 87 and 94% of respondents stated that they had changed their personal and their family’s activities for fear of being victims of an assault or kidnapping.

Milenio (Mexico City) 1/27/10

Two columnists’ reflections on crime in Mexico

[A well known Paraguayan soccer star was recently shot and critically wounded in a pre-dawn event at the “BarBar” bar in Mexico City. The incident has been making front page news for several days and has rekindled talk about insecurity and criminality in general. Following are portions of op/cols. from this paper showing how two writers addressed the issue. First, the last paragraph from “Living like Scared Rabbits”, by Roman Revueltas. Then, a final line by Felix Cortes.]

“Ah, and don’t tell me that if a bar is still open at five o’clock in the morning there inevitably has to be murders there. Ladies and gentlemen, talk about the relation between cause and effect. The problem is something else: in a morally putrid society, such as ours, they can kill you anywhere, at any hour.”

“The crime of the BarBar has brought to light – as if we didn’t know it – the excrement [note: we are using a more polite term than what the writer did] of the corruption in Mexican night life. And the impunity that protects it.”

——————————

Norte (Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua) 1/27/10

Juarez, inescapable Juarez

The first paragraph of a long article reporting the latest batch of assassinations in Juarez: “Four men, among them the captain of jail guards of the state prison, were assassinated yesterday in the city, which brings up to 174 the victims of homicide for the year.”

——————————-

La Libertad (Barranquilla, Colombia) 1/27/10

Cocaine by the ton

On Tuesday, the Panamanian flag vessel “San Judas Tadeo” arrived from Cartagena, Colombia, and docked at Barranquilla, ostensibly to take on a load of canned Colombian beer for Honduras. But during a routine inspection, the drug sniffing dog “Mateo” alerted to some contraband: a ton of cocaine was then found, hidden in sacks in the rear depths of the craft. Six men, Colombians and Hondurans, were arrested. The photos below relate.

Diario de Yucatan (Merida, Yucatan) 1/27/10

Illegal aliens heading north

Fourteen “undocumented” Guatemalans and Salvadorans were found aboard a northbound passenger bus near Jacala, in the Mexican state of Hidalgo. The bus was en route to Nuevo Laredo. [This news item is typical of the late Winter, early Spring flow of Central Americans toward the United States.]

——————————

El Universal (Mexico City) 1/27/10

More illegal aliens

Mexican federal police in the states of Tabasco, Queretaro, Guanajuato, Aguascalientes, Sonora, Chihuahua and in Mexico City’s airport, located 22 “undocumented” persons who were turned over to the “INM” [Mex. Immigration Agency.] Though mostly from Central American countries, a Chinese, a Peruvian and an Argentinian were included in this number. In Tabasco, they also detected eight others, 3 Hondurans, 2 Salvadorans and 3 Guatemalans.

Lots of weed

A truck and tank trailer headed to Ciudad Juarez from the interior of Mexico was found to contain “more than” 3 ½ tons of marihuana. The weed was hidden inside a special compartment which had been totally sealed and welded shut with a metal plate and silicone. The tank was allegedly hauling an industrial gas.

One Response to “New flow of illegal aliens headed to the U.S., and rampant violence in Mexico”

  1. Brittancus Says:

    There is absolutely no need to scrap the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform law (Pub.L. 99-603, 100 Stat. 3359, signed into law by Ronald Reagan. Just enforce the laws already on the books and add new amendments to the Simpson/Mazzoli bill. The law criminalized the act of–KNOWINGLY–hiring an illegal worker and established fines and other penalties for those employing illegal labor. This was approved under the theory that low prospects for employment using restrictions would reduce illegal immigration. But as we have acknowledged for decades, the laws were never intended to halt cheap labor. Never mind the severe consequences to the average working American, who if not skilled must contend in competing with a cut-price foreigner for a job. Even now with 15 million US Americans unemployed, the administrations want to force through an AMNESTY for people who have scorned our laws, disguised as Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

    Washington in 1986 introduced the I-9-form. to ensure that all employees presented documentary proof of their legal eligibility to accept employment in the United States. But just like most immigration forms, they don’t achieve the enforcement needed? The USCIS Form I-94 or I-95 that a individual gives to an Agent when arriving in the United States at a land border port-of-entry or from an airline or ship is a document that is easily compromised. Even though the arrival has been approved by an USCIS inspector to prove that you arrived in the country legally, their is no efficient way to know that person has left the country. It’s just like E-Verify currently that has been introduced, it doesn’t go far enough. An amendment should be introduced that makes the law MANDATORY, with no business entity slipping through the cracks. Since then the whole system has been corrupted by our own politicians in collusion with certain parasite leaders in the business world. The whole system of legal immigration has become unstable, with far reaching effects on American men and women and those who entered the country legally.

    The newspapers and other sources have brainwashed with a number of 12 million illegal immigrants in this nation, but this number is far from the truth. The actual number calculated by the financial institution Bear Stearns is somewhere between 20 and 30 million, which accounts for those entering illegally through our sovereign border, and those people who intentionally overstayed their entry visas. The three major components of immigration control–impediment, detainment and deportation–need to be strengthened by Senate-House and the Executive Branch if effective control is ever to be reestablished. As of today this has never happened or even meant to happen. As long as politicians pander to open border organizations and business lobbyists nothing will ever change. We need to amend the 1986 program to end illegal immigration; that means ensuring that people who enter illegally or overstay their lawful status will not be able to obtain jobs, public entitlement benefits, public education, public housing, or any other taxpayer-funded benefit without detection. E-Verify can achieve this as it modified for use by state, county and local government. Our government already exacts a toll on the Highly skilled US worker, by importing an average of 1.5 million foreign job seekers annually.

    EVEN WORSE WITH A MOSTLY LIBERAL SUPREME COURT DENYING UNDER “FREE SPEECH” THAT LOBBYISTS WITH THEIR MONEY CAN CORRUPT OUR GOVERNMENT. THAT EVEN FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS CAN DISTRACT OUR LAWMAKERS WITH MAJOR CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE NO CHANCE TO SURVIVE UNDER THIS CORPORATE ONSLAUGHT. Simply put, lobbyists can spend millions of dollars in advertising for or against politicians, if they don’t like the way they voted on issues? This means WALL STREET still runs our government. THE PEOPLE’S ONLY CHANCE IS A MANDATORY LAW, THAT ANY SOURCES OF MONEY MUST BE COMPLETELY OPEN TO PUBLIC VIEWING–WITHOUT ANY OPTION.

    WE have already seen how our politicians have been manipulated by private enterprise, in slowing down immigration enforcement. Both E-Verify has been compromised with lies, as with the local policing program 287 (G). Even the ICE raids have fallen off somewhat, because of the promise of yet another AMNESTY.
    It is now up to public opinion to thwart any chance of AMNESTY, as it means another obstacle in the way of survival for American workers and their families. E-Verify is being improved in the coming months, with less irregularities and less need for an American worker to be in competition for jobs. E-Verify is included in the SAVE ACT and must remain fully funded, so that it inhibits illegal workers. Find more answers for your immigration questions at NUMBERSUSA dot com and JUDICIALWATCH dot org. DEMAND NO MORE AMNESTIES, MAKE E-VERIFY PERMANENT , FULLY FUND 287 (G) FOR LOCAL POLICE AND RESUME EXPANDED ICE RAIDS. Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and asked for your Senator or Congressman. In addition bombard your State Representatives to enforce state laws.

    Latest news on illegal Immigration:
    A report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal found that illegal aliens receiving dialysis treatment were costing the hospital more than $2 million per month. Nevada taxpayers are forced to pay for a treatment.

    A new study commissioned by the Chicago Urban League and the Alternative Schools Network reveals the negative impacts of illegal immigration on low-skilled American workers, specifically teens and young adults.
