The Army will remain in Cd. Juárez
Responding to comments about the inability of the Mexican Army from USA Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, who said “The deployment of the Mexican Army in Juárez has not accomplished anything”, Secretary of State Fernando Gomez retorted that she (Napolitano) needs to understand the impact of such statements before launching a “holy war”. “Those statements should be retracted”, said Gomez.
“The Army is very important and its continued presence in Juárez is necessary and I have told this to Senora Napolitano”. “She does not know the actual situation and it is impossible to do anything without the participation of armed forces”. “This has been recognized by her own U.S. Government”, said Gomez.
“The decision to deploy the military is a decision exclusively for the Government of Mexico”. “It is not for others to make decisions involving public policy”, said Gomez.

Bipartisan immigration reform bill introduced
Democrat Senator Charles Schumer and Republican Lindsey Graham introduced an immigration reform bill today to legalize 11 million “undocumented” and institute a national biometric identification card.
The plan, which, once enacted, will be signed immediately by President Barack Obama, has four platforms for immigration reform. A biometric social security card; border enforcement; temporary workers; and a route to legalization.
The plan by Schumer and Graham will be revealed tomorrow in an article in the Washington Post, but will be published only in the online edition.
“The people of the United States deserve more than empty rhetoric, name calling and the demand for mass deportations. We urge the public and our colleagues to join our efforts to enact this reform”, said Schumer and Graham.
