Mexican Border Crime Underreported
By Judicial Watch Blog
Created 9 May 2011 - 12:53pm
The Obama Administration is deceiving Americans by underreporting serious crime along the Mexican border, according to the Texas lawmaker who chairs a congressional Homeland Security committee.

Federal, state and local law enforcement officials who deal firsthand with violent Mexican drug cartels will deliver testimony to prove it at a special committee hearing this week titled “On the Border and in the Line of Fire: U.S. Law Enforcement, Homeland Security and Drug Cartel Violence.” [1]

Authorities at every level will tell the “real story” of how they are “outmanned, overpowered and in danger of losing control” [1] of communities to “narco-terrorists,” says Michael McCaul, the Texas congressman who chairs the House Committee on Homeland Security. The lawmaker asserts that the Obama Administration “is not giving the American people a complete picture of security on our border with Mexico” and that data on crimes and violence along the southern border is “deceiving and underreported.”

Among those scheduled to speak at Wednesday’s hearing in Washington D.C. are the director of the Department of Homeland Security’s counter narcotics enforcement office, the head of the Texas Department of Public Safety, Arizona’s attorney general and the sheriff of Zapata County Texas. Their testimony will contradict Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s claim that security along the Mexican border is “better now than it has ever been,” McCaul says.

The House Homeland Security committee held a similar hearing in late March to address the crisis along the southwest border. A top Homeland Security official delivered gripping information outlining how Mexcian cartel drugs, money and weapons are part of a “complex interconnected system of illicit pathways and transitional criminal organizations that span the globe.” [2]

In a separate but related story on the administration’s handling of border security, Arizona lawmakers are seeking online donations to build fencing [3] along the border with Mexico since the federal government won’t do it. The plan includes using prison labor and launching a website to help raise money for the project. The state is already using donated funds to defend its immigration control law from the Obama Administration’s legal challenges.

The truth doesn't fit in with the Obama Administration's agenda and the lie that these are well-meaning "immigrants" just searching for the American dream, so naturally they have to suppress it.

Gotta love Jan Brewer and Sherrif Joe. Get some private funding donated and use the inmates to build the fence. I really wish she would run for President but so far, haven't heard any mention of her running.

Unfortunately, we tried that using humans. Los Zetas Cartel, who controls the I-35 corridor out of Nuevo Laredo, MX/Laredo, TX, are a group of militants hired and trained by U.S. Special Forces in Fort Bragg. We trained and armed them to defend the U.S. border from the Mexico side. It wasn't long before the Gulf Cartel began employing their services because they pay more than our government. The leader was killed in the early 2000s and now, they control the most lucrative drug corridor on the planet.

I'm 100% sure a fence on that side would be torn down.

I do wish we would put Armed National Guards to patrolling at least part of the border! These cartels have gotten way outta hand!
