**Asterisk denotes death involving a police officer or a member of the military serving in that capacity.

MONTERREY, NUEVO LEÓN

Tuesday afternoon, a group of gunmen came to the front gate of the Topo Chico prison and after taking control of guards, entered the facility. They opened fire, and on locating an inmate due to testify, executed him. Prison guards returned fire, and killed one of the gunmen. Another gunman was caught, and seven guards were detained for investigation. A subsequent report says that 18 people have been arrested, 5 state police officers and 13 prison guards. And yet another update late Thurs. afternoon says that there is a lot of tension inside the prison. Relatives of the prisoners are demanding the presence of the Army, saying the police are corrupt and part of the criminal group that attacked. (Note the report does not specifically include the prison guards as police, but in Spanish, the word police is often used for anyone in a position of authority to detain. Thus it could include attorney general investigators, or others in similar positions.)

    pf: Those in Washington along with the elitists that favor unlimited immigration, illegal or otherwise do not have to live in mainstream America as most of us do that have to deal with these people…They live in gated communities or exclusive areas that are well protected unlike many other Americans.

  2. pf Says:

    Lyn,
    I find your post most fascinating. Where I live, I am seeing this already. Whole communities, once American in flavor have been taken over and converted to Mexican. Everything is in Spanish. Rentals are rented to families here on green cards, escaping the violence south of the border. Schools are predominately hispanic now and while kids have come across the border for years to take advantage of free education at the expense of the American taxpayer – and the school districts look the other way – because they receive tax dollars based on head count and nothing more – the flavor of the education being received is less on our (American) culture and more and more emphasis on Mexican.

    At this rate, we don’t have to worry about the fear of being overrun and conquered. We already are. And it’s not just Mexicans. This sick government has allowed refugees from all over the world to come here. A town not too far from me has become “Little Bagdad”. With that influx, crime has gone through the roof. Our liberal immigration policies have torn apart the fabric of this nation and what made it great.

    Washington is and will continue to look the other way.

  3. norm9do Says:

    If the current immigration level of both legal and illegal continues as it is today, housing, employment and related services for them will become meaningless eventually, as America will become and decend into much like the countries they came from.

    Anyone who denies this fact that it will happen when enough time has passed is completely out of touch with the reality of the situation…..as many are.

  4. lyn Says:

    Unfortunately the Real Estate Market talking heads have identified immigration as a solution to depressed real estate demand within the United States. Their lobby has come to support an upgraded fast track for holders of PHDs, MDs, Engineering or Science degrees and business investors from India, Pakistan, and China, calling to provide them with favorable housing purchase priority and a five year renewable green card.

    Others of a more humanitarian ideal speculate on how we shall deal with the expected refugee flow from violence torn Mexico, that perhaps our excess housing could accommodate such an event.

    Sometimes I wonder if Karl Marx was right about the capitalist selling the rope that would be used to hang the seller. I keep hoping I am either dreaming or hallucinating.
