20 police resign in Manzanillo
After the assassination of three of their companions and because of the grenade attacks that security offices have suffered in the past few days in the port city of Manzanillo, Colima, around 20 officers of the police force have resigned their positions.  The wave of violence by the war of organized criminals in their struggle for control of the port area is causing fear among the security forces. “We do not have sufficient equipment like firearms, patrol vehicles, protective vests and radio equipment,” the police charge.  The Manzanillo city officials have remained silent about the  resignations.

Anti-immigrant activities drive Latino bloc
Los Angeles, California (Notimex) –  Anti-immigrant  activities are making US Latinos aware of the importance of participation and the necessity of finally creating a Latino bloc, asserted a union leader, Eliseo Medina.  “Measures like SB 1070 in Arizona and those of denying citizenship to children of undocumenteds are only awakening them,” he said.  In California there is a total of 3.3 million Latino registered voters and some million and a half who can register to vote “and to this group we are going to focus,” he emphasized.

    June…..”If Senor Medina plans to work against the best interest of this country – and what he wants is against this country’s best interest” – then I’d say declare war.

    Re: Anti-immigrant activities…
    Does Senor Medina mean that he wants illegal aliens to continue breaking and entering, and does he want citizenship given to the anchor babies of illegals? Surely not, since Mexico is decidedly against both these measures in their own country and forbids them. That would be hypocritical, wouldn’t it? If Senor Medina plans to work against the best interest of this country – and what he wants is against this country’s best interest – then I’d say he’s not worth listening too. There are many of these anti-American zealots floating around like him, such as Luis Gutierrez who is a complete sell out. Let’s take back our country!
