Prime Minister of Australia Nails it AGAIN!


says NO -- Second Time she has done this!
She sure isn't backing down on her hard line stance and one has to appreciate her belief in the rights of her native countrymen.
A breath of fresh air to see someone lead. Australian Prime Minister does it again!!
The whole world needs a leader like this!
Prime Minister Julia Gillard - Australia
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.
Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: 'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT... Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.'
'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.'
'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!'
'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'
'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'
'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'
'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'

Illegal Alien Rapist gets Jail Time!

New Haven, CT – On Thursday, Superior Court Judge David Gold sentenced Jose Angel Moreno-Hernandez, 29, to 80 years in prison for repeatedly raping and beating a woman who offered to drive him home. The victim was a co-worker at a local restaurant.
In October, Moreno-Hernandez was convicted of five counts of first-degree sexual assault, first-degree kidnapping, attempted murder and first-degree assault.
The crime occurred on March 27, 2009.
The victim testified that once in the car, her attacker propositioned her. When she refused his advances, he forced her out of the car near a park and dragged her by the hair into the woods. He then began raping her…he would do so several more times before the ordeal ended.
During the assault, Moreno-Hernandez stomped up and down on his victim, twisted her neck and repeatedly punched her with a closed fist, according to court documents.
The brutality only ended once the woman pretended to be dead.
Once Moreno-Hernandez fled the scene, the victim staggered out the woods and managed to find help. The beating left her basically blind as her eyes were swollen shut.
She told the courtroom: “He looked me in my eyes, laughed, shrugged and said he was sorry as I cried and begged for my life.”
“Everything would go white as he beat me, and if I didn’t get up fast enough, I would get pulled up by my hair, only to be raped or beaten again,” she said. “The only way I can begin to describe his demeanor during the attacks is to say I saw and felt nothing less than pure evil.”
She said Moreno-Hernandez “killed the woman that was in those woods. I now live in pain and fear constantly.”
Before the sentence was handed-down, the victim’s mother testified to her daughter’s injuries, saying: “Her face was completely covered in blood, her eyes swollen shut, but she tried to turn her head to me.”
“She told me, ‘Mama, I fought hard and he hurt me badly. I wouldn’t let him kill me, Mama. I just wanted to see your face again.’”
In addition to her ongoing physical injuries, the woman now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety. She told the judge that she now sleeps with a hammer under her pillow.
Throughout Thursday’s proceedings, the illegal alien showed no emotion and simply sat listening to the Spanish translation of his victim’s testimony through headphones. Though, he did tell the judge: “I don’t know what happened.”
Moreno-Hernandez’ defense attorney, Tejas Bhatt asked the judge for a more lenient sentence, saying: “We ask that you give him one more chance, to breathe fresh air.”
However, Judge Gold was not moved and told Moreno-Hernandez: “This is truly among the most savage and sadistic crimes I have ever seen. Your crimes reflect a level of depravity that borders on the barbaric and inhumane.”
Moreno-Hernandez who is in the country illegally from Mexico will not be eligible for parole until 2079 and will more than likely die in prison.

My .02 Cents worth


What a load of you know what! If you are in ANY COUNTRY ILLEGALLY you should be looking over your shoulder for the law! What makes the USA any different? If you cross into Canada or Mexico Illegally you better keep an eye out for the law. If you went to those countries and tried to live there illegally you would have a hard time! Why make it EASY here? Plain and simple folks, whatever country you go to do it LEGALLY! If grandma is here illegally, send her home to someone there to take care of her! And don't bring your kids here illegally! Be a responsible PARENT! And also it is NOT about “Immigrants” it is about Illegal Aliens (45’s) who come into a country without doing it the right way! Maybe the writer need to inform themselves in using the proper terminology or quit using the AP Playbook and be real reporters! Or maybe they are trying to sensationalize the article to make everyone think that those of us who support the rule of law are against all Immigrants! Which is another load of you know what! And for all the farmers who have been hiring these illegal’s “May your crops ROT in the ground” you have done nothing more than aid in the slavery of thousands of people by not paying a fair wage! Time to get mechanized farmers! The days of cheap labor are over with. Hasn’t this so called reporter also seen the factories and chain restaurants’ that dumped the Illegal’s and then lines formed of AMERICAN Citizens out of work applying for the jobs?

We all know that many of the administrations have failed the American public in doing the job of enforcing Immigration laws for DECADES! It is not the fault of just one regime all of them are guilty. Americans must follow the rule of law that means schools, churches, corporations and us common folks. We don’t get the privilege to pick and choose which laws we will obey; a civilized society must continue to respect the rule of law, no matter what country you live in.

Americans are tired of waiting for the federal government to make political move that will favor them in the election races, we want actions and we want them done now it is not a right, left or TeaParty thing and has absolutely nothing to do with Race. Enforce the laws we have on the books, Illegal Aliens will self deport as they are doing now, impost heavy fines and jail time for those that hire IA’s and for those that house them, cut off all local, state & federal funding.

And yes, it will be hard on those who are here Illegally, but those who made the choice to be here illegally made that choice, not the American public and we don’t want to flip the bill any longer for them. We also need to lower the number of aliens we admit into this country until our unemployment numbers are satisfactory! We cannot be the home for everyone in the world who wants the American dream! Citizens of the world who want to come here need to make a home in the country they live in, if it is not how they like it then they have to rise up and make the sacrifices just like Americans have for hundreds of years and make it better there for them and their children.

The idea of giving out our tax dollars to people who are in the country unlawfully has to come to an end! No more hand outs for schools who educate the illegals, no more food stamp or social services programs, no more drivers licenses and no more special attention to any one Race!. Yes we have heard that IA’s pay taxes, and we all know that the majority of those are using false identification to do so.

If you don’t like these ideas, that is still your right, and I hope it remains you right until they move in next door to you and take over your community!

We need immigrants! We all know it, just not now, and not such high numbers of them. We need a common sense approach to government and from what I see, neither party has enough to give you change for a wooden nickel now! We don’t care where they come from generally; they can be “Green” and have 3 eyes and if they want to assimilate into the American society and does it legally, let’s welcome them so don’t pull out the RACE CARD!

Enough of the RACE card please!, you are either American or Not! Don't describe yourself as some other name like Latino-American, German-American, Russian-American or Chinese-American first.... We want Immigrants in America, but we want them to come here LEGALLY please and assimilate. If you cannot do that you disrespect this country and you really don't deserve to be here.

The federal government “AG” Office needs to stop bringing states into the courts for doing what it refuses to do, they need to tend to business that helps America survive and protect its resources. Go after corruption, crimes that actually need to be looked into! Look into Politicians for goodness sake that should keep them busy full time!

Border Patrol Auxiliary

In an effort to confront a vicious attack against the Border Patrol Auxiliary by a well known very left leaning group known for years to be Anti-Patriotic we are addressing the following area of concern from National Leadership in the Border Patrol Auxiliary.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has declared that BPAUX is now included as a “Nativist Extremist Groups 2010” For years the SPLC has attacked many organizations around the country for being patriotic and in support of the rule of law. It seems that the SLPC is now declaring that BPAUX is somehow a “Militia” even though BPAUX has never stated that it is, and the organizations web site says it is not! We don’t quite understand where the SPLC got the idea that BPAUX is a Militia and have asked them to remove any reference to us from their web site.

BPAUX continues to assist all local, state & federal law enforcement agencies in drug & human trafficking as well as providing education to children in schools about the harms of drugs. BPAUX will continue to screen all members to ensure that there are no hidden agendas in membership, and that our members treat all persons with dignity and respect regardless of their legal status.

For the record, and to make it very clear to all current and future members of this organization, and to the SPLC. BPAUX is NOT a Militia, they never will be nor have they ever been one regardless of what other web sites or articles have written about the group. As posted online for everyone to see we exist to support local, state & federal law enforcement agencies in drug & human trafficking. BPAUX is also not a political organization, and is not involved with making fences, protesting, shooting Illegal Aliens or Drug smugglers or taking over the government! Our members undergo a background check, and a vetting prior to any actual participation. In the following 6 months every members is on a probationary period where they are closely monitored for any behavior that is unacceptable to our standards.

In the future if any organization wishes to know details about BPAUX, they would be advised to read ALL of the materials posted online for public access prior to any creative writing articles! Articles like this one from the SPLC only prove that they have not done any homework or research in investigating that BPAUX really is, they made no calls to National Leadership asking any questions about the organization, and they sent no emails to leadership asking for any clarifications.

In our opinion, the lawyers behind the SPLC should know better! Slander is a serious issue, and BPAUX National Leadership has requested that the SPLC web site remove any reference to BPAUX permanently.

Louisiana is trying to regain the congressional seat it lost after the 2010 census showed a population shift toward states with the largest numbers of illegal immigrants, such as California and Texas.

States are assigned seats in the U.S. House of Representatives based on their populations.

The Louisiana lawsuit appears to demonstrate the extent that illegal immigration is distorting U.S. population figures to the point it affects political districting.

The lawsuit also represents the first time a state has petitioned the Supreme Court directly to ask that illegal immigrants be left out of the census count.

About 11 million illegal immigrants live in the United States, according to the Census Bureau.

A new census is not required, merely a recalculation of 2010 population figures after discounting illegal immigrants, according to the Supreme Court petition filed by Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell.

If illegal immigrants are not counted, Louisiana would get seven of the 435 seats in the House of Representatives, the lawsuit says. Instead, Louisiana will get six seats.

State lawmakers were forced to redistrict their congressional seats in a special legislative session in March. The next congressional elections are scheduled for November 2012.

States with large numbers of illegal immigrants benefit “at the expense of states containing relatively few,” the lawsuit in Louisiana v. Bryson says.

Louisiana is one of five states losing congressional seats “to which they are entitled” while at least three states gain seats “to which they are not entitled,” the lawsuit says.

As a result, the votes of U.S. citizens are less valuable “in terms of electoral power” in states with the fewest illegal immigrants, the lawsuit says.

It will take 748,160 Louisiana voters to elect a congressman compared with 656,452 in California, Louisiana’s attorney general argues.

The lawsuit accuses the Census Bureau of violating a constitutional provision requiring a census every 10 years of legal residents, not of everyone who happens to be in the United States.

The lawsuit draws authority from Article 1 and the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.

It also coincides with increased activism among states to act independently against illegal immigration.

Arizona and Alabama have been the most aggressive by passing laws authorizing local police to arrest suspected illegal immigrants.

Opponents filed lawsuits to block the state laws in federal court. The lawsuits are being appealed after Arizona’s law was struck down by a federal district court.

On Tuesday, illegal immigrants protesting the Alabama law were arrested outside the state capitol building.

A small group calling itself the Alabama Youth Collective sat down in the street near the state house and shouted slogans such as “undocumented, unafraid” and “stop the hate.”

The U.S. Census Bureau recently released more information from its 2010 census showing the number of foreign-born residents in the United States, both legal and illegal, has reached its highest level in American history at about 40 million.

Of those, 14 million arrived between 2000 and 2010.

Mexico is by far the source of the greatest number of immigrants at 12 million. China, Hong Kong and Taiwan together are second with about 2.1 million.

Five tons of drugs seized in blow against cartel

Military detains 17 people in Tijuana, Mexicali

The Mexican army on Tuesday displayed 600 packages of drugs worth $15 million at the Morelos base in Tijuana. File Photo
Tijuana – The commander of Baja California’s Second Military zone, Gen. Gilberto Landeros, announced Tuesday the seizure of illegal drugs worth more than $15 million, which he called a major blow to the Sinaloa cartel.
The two dozen reporters at his press conference, however, were more interested in what he had to say about Jorge Hank Rhon, whose house he ordered searched on June 4.
Federal authorities said the military conducted the search after three men who had been detained said an arsenal could be found at that house. The search turned up 88 weapons and nearly 10,000 live rounds and Hank Rhon and eight others were detained.
That’s why, a few hours after a judge ordered them released for insufficient evidence, casting doubt on these types of military operations and the anonymous tips that often lead to them, the questions about the case hung in the air as well as the smell of marijuana emanating from the more than 600 packages displayed at the Morelos base.
Landeros, however, avoided questions on the subject, saying he did not want to interfere with the continuing investigations.
He did, however, appear to be sending an indirect message when he said, “The success of military operations in the fight against organized crime and drug trafficking is the result of the fundamental cooperation of the citizenry through its anonymous complaints that leads to a greater confidence in the Mexican army and Mexican air force.
“We will continue to respond to anonymous tips with energy and care. We will go where we are called to go. We analyze the information and we proceed based on the law,” Landeros said.
One reporter pressed the commander, asking if Hank Rhon’s detention followed the law. He responded, “Yes, definitely,” and called an end to the press conference.
At the event he announced the confiscation in Tijuana of 10,694 pounds of marijuana, 11 pounds of marijuana seeds and 7.2 pounds of crystal methamphetamine. He said that 11 people had been detained, and two rifles, two guns, one magazine and 110 live rounds had been confiscated.
In Mexicali, meanwhile, six people had been detained and 69.5 pounds of cocaine had been seized, along with one rifle, one gun and a magazine.
The commander said the drugs had been seized in various operations June 11 to 13 and those detained had indicated that they belonged to the Sinaloa cartel.

The victim, who wasn't identified, was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Deputies didn't say why the two were arguing.

Jesus Navarro Montes

Jesus Navarro Montes, a Mexican national from Mexicali, was convicted of second-degree murder for the death of Border Patrol Agent Luis Aguilar. On January 19, 2008, Navarro was driving a Hummer transporting drugs into the United States from Mexico on I-8 west of Yuma, Arizona. Border Patrol was following him and another suspect driving a Ford truck. Navarro turned around when he realized he was being followed.

Aguilar, 32-years-old and a 6 year veteran of the Border Patrol stationed in the Yuma Sector, was setting up spike strips near the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area when Navarro spotted him and intentionally ran him over and then fled to Mexico.

Agent Luis Aguilar

Navarro was captured in Mexico and extradited to the United States to stand trial. Navarro was convicted of narcotics violations in addition to the murder charge. A federal jury returned the verdict in less than two hours.

Aguilar is survived by a wife, two children and two siblings.


"Our office is gratified by the jury's verdict in this case and appreciates the service of each juror,” said United States Attorney Laura E. Duffy in a Department of Justice press release. “The entire prosecution team's efforts in securing defendant Navarro-Montes' presence in the United States and the presentation of the case has been nothing short of outstanding.”

Navarro faces maximum sentences of life in prison for murder and 40 years in prison on the drug charge. U.S. District Judge Michael Anello scheduled sentencing for 9 a.m. on June 27, 2011.

CBP U.S. Border Patrol Seizes $3.5 Million Drug Load at I-8 Checkpoint

CBP U.S. Border Patrol Seizes $3.5 Million Drug Load at I-8 Checkpoint
(Monday, June 06, 2011)
contacts for this news release

Pine Valley, Calif. — U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Interstate 8 checkpoint near Pine Valley arrested a 25-year-old male, U.S. citizen, for attempting to smuggle more than 315 pounds of cocaine and 570 pounds of marijuana hidden in a tractor-trailer.

Agents found $3.5 million in drugs hidden behind this panel.

Agents found $3.5 million in drugs hidden behind this panel.

Agents encountered the man, a resident of Los Angeles, on Friday, at about 11:15 p.m., as he arrived at the checkpoint driving a 1998 Freightliner truck with a trailer. A Border Patrol canine team performed a cursory inspection of the truck which resulted in a positive alert to the trailer. The driver was then referred for a secondary inspection.

During secondary inspection, agents searched the front of the trailer and discovered a false wall made of metal and plywood.

Illegal Alien Kills Houston Police Officer

(CBS/KHOU) HOUSTON, Texas - A driver accused of hitting and killing a Houston officer while intoxicated Sunday was an illegal immigrant from Mexico who had been deported previously from the United States, according to authorities.

Police said Johoan Rodriguez, 26, had a blood alcohol level three times over the legal limit and had cocaine in his pocket when he struck and killed Officer Kevin Will, 38, with his vehicle, reports CBS station KHOU.

Rodriguez was charged with intoxication manslaughter, felony evading and possession of a controlled substance, and an immigration hold was placed on him.

The station reports that Officer Will was talking to a witness to a motorcycle accident around 2 a.m. when the driver of a Volkswagen Beetle broke through a police barricade at the scene. Will reportedly pushed the witness out of the way before being hit. He reportedly died at the scene.

According to court records, Rodriguez was previously deported and then attempted to enter the U.S. by claiming to be a U.S. citizen born in Texas, using a Texas driver's license to support the claim, reports KHOU. Rodriguez reportedly managed to reenter the country some time after that.

Officer Will is survived by his wife, who is six months pregnant, and two children, 6 and 10.

The White House Blog Response to “Immigration”

(I have taken the liberty to add in my comments in Yellow)

What You Told Us About Immigration Reform

Posted by Cecilia Muñoz on May 23, 2011 at 12:00 PM EDT on the Whitehouse Blog!

Following the President Obama's speech on immigration reform in El Paso, Texas, I asked for your feedback on this issue through our Advise the Advisor program. We received thousands of responses from across the country to the following questions:

  • Immigration and American Competitiveness:How can immigration reform support America’s competitiveness in a 21st century economy?
  • Biggest Challenges to Reform: What do you think are the biggest challenges to reforming America's immigration system?
  • Encouraging Bipartisan Debate:What are some ways you can get a discussion going in your communities to encourage a bipartisan debate and move this issue forward?

A team at the White House reviewed all of your comments and ideas and below we’ve summarized and responded to some of what we heard from you. (a select few who know little if anything about the real borders! and probably never have been to one!)

Enforcement of Current Laws

We heard from many people who disagreed with the premise that we needed immigration reform or changes to our immigration laws.  They argued that we need better enforcement of our current laws and more accountability for undocumented immigrants and the employers that hire them.

For example, Robert from Torrance, California said:

First we need to honor the immigration laws that already exists.  The problem stems from a lack of enforcement, not a lack of new regulations.  Simply, immigrants have always been welcome and have always contributed. (I agree totally, enforce the current laws, see how many return back home and then deal with the rest!)

It’s absolutely worth focusing on the best ways to enforce the laws that we have; that’s why the President traveled to El Paso, Texas, which is on the border with Mexico. (Really, El Paso is an example of what the actual border looks like? hello what reality are you people living in? El Paso Texas is totally controlled, there are fences all along that area!  Go to some of the areas in Arizona or Texas where we don’t have any fences! Then give that same darn speech!)  This Administration takes its enforcement role very seriously, and is working to do the smartest and most strategic job that we can at the border and in the interior, and we are measuring our impact and making adjustments as the data comes in to make sure we are getting it right. (sure you are, by NOT reporting actual facts about people crossing into the USA, by not putting those people into JAILs, and by not punishing those who commit crimes by these people!)  On the Department of Homeland Security website you’ll find information to show how we’re doing on the border and information on our interior enforcement strategy.  But in the end, we will not be able to fix what’s broken about our immigration system by enforcement alone. (IT IS NOT BROKEN, QUIT TRYING TO SPIN THE FACTS YOU JUST DON’T WANT TO ENFORCE THE LAWS) There are more than ten million unauthorized immigrants living and working in the United States, and a strategy aimed at removing them all cannot be successful.  (And if you don’t try you will never know how easy it really is)  Nor will enforcement fix the deficiencies in our legal immigration system, which separates families, undercuts us economically, and contributes to illegal immigration. To fix those problems, we need to reform the law. (No, you need to enforce it!)

Competing in the 21st Century Economy

Many respondents agreed that we need to reform our immigration system to make it easier for highly skilled workers to join the workforce in the United States. Duraikumar from Morrisville, North Carolina said:

To compete in the 21st century, the century of knowledge, America needs more skilled people. The available skilled force is not enough to remain competitive….Everybody knows that the current immigration system is broken. We need to reform the immigration system to bring more skilled immigrants to support America's competitiveness in a 21st century economy.

Our immigration system was last reformed in the mid- 1990s, when cellphones and the internet were emerging technologies. Those reforms were based on the premise that allowing even a limited number of immigrants to the country might mean fewer jobs for Americans.  As the President and his team work with CEOs and other business leaders around the country on a range of economic issues, the immigration issue comes up over and over again because it is essential to our ability to create jobs in the sectors of the economy that are ripe for economic growth. CEO after CEO tells us about foreign-born employees on their teams without whom we would lose hundreds of jobs, and about people they would like to hire – who have been trained at our finest universities, but who cannot get permission to stay and work in the U.S., so they instead become our competition. If they are lucky and get a visa, our laws are often too restrictive to allow their spouses to live and work here, so other countries can lure them away.  As the President said in El Paso, we don’t want the next Google or Facebook to be started in India or China, we want it started here in the United States.  And we need laws that make this possible. (Let them build the next Google in India & Mexico! Please then those countries could employ more people there and leave some of these jobs for us Americans who have the skills but won’t work for slave labor like they want)

Undocumented Immigrants (God I am sick of these words, there is no such thing! When on earth will these crazies get it right?)

We also heard from many of you about how we should deal with the ten million undocumented immigrants in the United States. (So now it is 10 million! What the hell happened to the other 20 Million?)  Some respondents were concerned that allowing undocumented immigrants to stay in the country rewards illegal activity while others recognized the contributions that undocumented workers make to our economy. (YA THINK!) Jeff from Colorado told us:

While I am in favor of giving all current illegals citizenship for the benefit of actually collecting taxes, it would look like we are rewarding illegal behavior.  We need their tax dollars and manpower to stay competitive. (BS JEFF, JUST PLAIN BS)

This is a fair point; and it’s reasonable to say that we shouldn’t reward people who are here in violation of the law. But it’s also true that we are unlikely to succeed in removing all ten million of them, and it’s not in our interest for them to remain in the U.S. working in the underground economy, where they can undercut U.S. workers because they fear standing up to employers who offer substandard wages and working conditions.  President Obama believes that the right way to address this problem is to require accountability all across the board. Those of us in the federal government are accountable for enforcing the law wisely and well.  Businesses should be accountable for the people that they hire, and those here illegally should be held accountable for getting on the right side of the law, paying a fine, learning English, paying taxes, and getting in line behind those who are waiting to become immigrants and citizens.  (AND GO HOME TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY!)


The DREAM Act was also a popular topic in your responses, with many respondents expressing support for this legislation.  Sandra from Wisconsin said:

Undocumented immigrants are already contributing to our economy. Immigration reform allows them to live openly as legal residents and make a greater investment as consumers. The DREAM Act prepares immigrant youth to take on future leadership roles by providing them with the necessary education. (Liar Liar, pants on fire)

One of our biggest disappointments in the last Congress is that, though the DREAM Act passed the House for the first time ever and it got 55 votes in the Senate which, though a majority, was not enough to break the filibuster raised against it. (ALIPAC & those members stopped it dead in it’s tracks, and we will do it every time it is brought up!) The thing about the DREAM Act is that the students that it would affect never chose to come to this country illegally; they were brought by their parents when they were too young to make the choice for themselves. They have grown up here, have succeeded in school, and are eager to continue their studies or serve their country – this country – in the military. We can’t afford to waste that kind of talent and commitment, which is why we were glad to see the DREAM Act reintroduced in the Senate in mid-May. We will keep working on this until we get it done.

Lack of Public Understanding (Lies again, the American public understands perfectly! We told you years ago we won’t take it any longer and we voted most of your sorry asses out and we will do it again and again!)

When it comes to the biggest challenges facing immigration reform, many people cited a lack of understanding by the general public and politicians in Washington about the importance of immigration reform. Robert from Athens, Georgia said:

The average U. S. citizen has no idea of the complexities involved in the U. S. work visa and permanent residency systems. They don't understand how the system separates families, creates uncertainties and day-to-day difficulties in living and working in the U. S.  Educating U. S. citizens as to WHY the system is broken and how that is affecting human lives is critical.

Immigration is a complicated issue and because it gets to the heart of who we are, as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants, the debate can get emotional very quickly, which means there is often a lot of heat and not a lot of light. This is why we value your input, (No you don’t, you are a hard headed ruling class who does not listen to Americans any longer) and why the President asked people around the country to help him lift up the issue, by engaging their communities in a civil debate about the best way to move this issue forward. There are a lot of people with good stories to tell and strong cases to make about the impact of immigrants in their communities.  We have developed a toolkit and a place for you to give us feedback so that you can host conversations in your communities and tell us what you learned and what we need to know. We believe that Americans are interested in informed dialogue instead of shouting matches, and we hope that many of you take up the President’s call to action.

Challenges to Immigration Reform (Who on earth wants to change it!)

Reforming our immigration system will not be an easy task, and we asked you to tell us what you see as the biggest challenges to reform.  Jaques from Secaucus, New Jersey made an excellent point:

Our biggest challenge is to take the politics out of the discussion. If our representatives can forget their party affiliation and begin to think of what is really best for our country progress can be made.  Fences and ditches alone will not stop the flow of the illegal. Investing in employment reforms and development in those underdeveloped countries will be the less costly and more effective solution in the long run. (Obviously this guy never has been to a actual border and seen a real fence in action)

We couldn’t agree with you more. Immigration reform laws going back throughout our history have always been bipartisan approaches to challenging problems, and that’s what we need to have here.  What we hope to achieve with the President’s call to action is a civil conversation on how to fix this problem that shows the Congress that there is room for bipartisanship and a sense of urgency toward finding a solution. America is at its best when we find ways to work together, and while this issue can be difficult, we think there is a real answer within our reach if we’re willing to work together.  

Nora from South Plains, New Jersey said:

There is no system that will please everyone nor be the end-all solution. However, to do nothing and ignore the plight of so many is short-sighted. We cannot compare recent and current trends to those of previous generations.

President Obama has said on many occasions that we can’t afford to just kick the can down the road because an issue is difficult. (Americans cannot afford to keep liberals in office any longer) Immigration reform is difficult, and it will take hard work and compromise to get the job done. But this is something that we have to do, not only to honor our heritage as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants, but because it is an economic necessity. The Administration will do everything it can to bring Congressional partners to the table from both sides of the aisle to figure out where we can make progress; but as the President said in El Paso, we can’t do it alone. Your input is important, and so is your engagement in the debate. We need every possible pair of hands and every voice in order to get the job done.

$4 million in cocaine found in car trunk

By Pauline Repard
Thursday, May 19, 2011 at 2:10 p.m.
EAST COUNTY — The driver of a Ford Mustang was arrested with more than $4 million worth of cocaine in the trunk at the Pine Valley Border Patrol checkpoint Wednesday, authorities said.
The driver came to the checkpoint on Interstate 8 about 3:20 p.m. and appeared nervous when agents contacted him, said Agent Scott Simon.
A drug-sniffing dog reacted to the trunk of the 1998 Mustang. Simon said agents found 62 bundles of cocaine weighing a total of 436 pounds, with an estimated street value of $4.3 million.
The driver, a 19-year-old United States citizen, was arrested and turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration. • (619) 293-1865

Drugs in CAMPO, CA

Campo, Calif. — U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested seven men in two separate incidents in Campo and seized nearly 600 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $349,000.

The most recent incident occurred yesterday morning when Border Patrol agents detected several individuals with backpacks walking north from the U.S./ Mexico border through the brush. Agents responded, intercepting six individuals and discovered six backpacks hidden in the surrounding areas. The backpacks contained 27 bundles of marijuana weighing more than 337 pounds with an estimated street value of $202,000. The men, later identified as Mexican nationals illegally in the country, were taken into Border Patrol custody.

An earlier incident occurred Friday morning when Border Patrol agents working near the international border in Campo observed four individuals carrying large backpacks. Agents observed the subjects attempting to conceal the backpacks in the surrounding brush. Agents arrived in the area and conducted a search and encountered one male Mexican national and found four large backpacks. The three additional suspects absconded from the area and returned to Mexico. The backpacks contained 20 bundles of marijuana weighing more than 245 pounds with an estimated street value of $147,000.

The seven suspected smugglers and the marijuana were taken into custody and were turned over to a multi-agency drug task force.

Marijuana bales seized in cove on Catalina Island

Wednesday, May 18, 2011 at 3:54 p.m.
LOS ANGELES — A beachcomber in a lonely Santa Catalina Island cove wasn't looking for shells. Authorities said he was guarding 1,500 pounds of marijuana.
Deputies seized 31 bales of pot on Tuesday and arrested a Mexican citizen on suspicion of possessing and transporting marijuana, Capt. Jeff Donahue said Wednesday.
"This guy's looking at least 10 years" in prison if he is convicted, Donahue said. The man was not immediately identified.
A sheriff's deputy and a park ranger who were "just hanging out" spotted the man at remote Little Harbor, Donahue said.
The man went back to a cove where there were blue tarpaulins and "bales of something," but when the authorities approached he tried to hide, the captain said.
A helicopter was called in to help deputies spot the fugitive. He was finally found hiding in crevasses in a rocky area.
The plastic-wrapped bales turned out to be Mexican marijuana with an estimated street value of $1.5 million.
A boat that apparently was used to land the pot was found on the north side of the island. It likely was forced there by bad weather.
"Obviously, we had a lot of rain and storms in the past few days," he said. "He was just waiting to be picked up."
Catalina draws ferry-loads of tourists, boaters, scuba divers and hikers from around the world. The quaint city of Avalon features scenic harbors, surging kelp gardens and back-country wilderness.
But when the weather's bad, it also attracts smugglers forced to seek shelter, Donahue said.
In April 2010, authorities seized 4,000 pounds of marijuana and arrested three men who claimed they were abandoned after paying a smuggler to bring them to the U.S.
They were later sentenced to about 10 years in prison.
As the United States has strengthened security at the border, Mexican smugglers have turned to the sea, outfitting so-called panga boats to run up the coast from Baja California with cargoes of dope or illegal immigrants.
"It used to be San Diego. Now, they're working their way up higher," Donahue said.

Mexico deputy prison governor decapitated in Durango


The headless bodies were found on the same day as more corpses were discovered at a junkyard Continue reading the main story
Police in Mexico have found eight decapitated bodies in the northern state of Durango.
Among the dead was the deputy governor of Durango's prison, who had been abducted on Monday.
Gerardo Galindo's head was found next to a wall bearing a threatening message by a local drug gang.
Prison officials are increasingly being targeted by drug gangs, whose jailed members often continue to run their businesses from behind bars.
In February, the security chief of a prison in the northern city of Monterrey was murdered.
His dismembered body was found in a plastic box inside a car abandoned near the prison he worked at.
Officials have not yet identified the remaining seven bodies found in Durango.
Forensic experts also uncovered another eight bodies in mass graves in Durango city, the state's capital, bringing the total discovered over the past month to 196.
Durango state governor Jorge Herrera Calderas said on Wednesday that he thought most of those buried in the mass graves had fallen victim to a "settling of scores" between drug gangs.
The state's murder rate has risen steeply in recent years as rival gangs battle for control of the drugs trade in the area.

By Susan Shroder
Wednesday, May 11, 2011 at 5:59 p.m.
Bundles of cocaine were found in a Mitsubishi Galant.

Defunding LaRaza


WARNING: Your Tax Dollars are being spent to promote illegal immigration, racially divisive education and ANTI-American activities!
WHY are American citizens being forced to contribute to organizations LIKE "LA RAZA," that are threatening the overthrow of the American Southwest?
"La Raza" is made up of many immigrant groups that aim to abolish all immigration laws and teach "La Reconquista" in schools to Latino students. In essence, students are taught that Europe STOLE southwest America from Mexico and that this region must be "conquered."
…and YOUR TAX DOLLARS are paying for their activities!
"La Raza" opposes any kind of immigration enforcement, opposes border security, and efforts to stop illegal aliens from voting. They also believe that illegal aliens deserve licenses and welfare.
They believe in racially divisive education that teaches Hispanic students that everything about American laws and culture are racist.
The "La Raza" movement teaches that California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Colorado, Oregon and parts of Washington State rightfully belong to Hispanics. They urge legal and illegal immigrants to claim these lands and thus destroy the current U.S. borders.
This is what they call "Reconquista," or reconquest.
Remember the hundreds of thousands of illegals who marched on our cities and demanded their "rights", claiming we are on their territory, claiming loyalty to Mexico, and ignoring, even mocking, our rule of law? La Raza considers these protestors an "Army of Invaders" that is helping to achieve a takeover of the American Southwest through immigration…even force, if necessary.
Mexican American Legal Defense Fund founder Mario Obledo stated, "California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave. People who don't like such demographic changes should go back to Europe."
The most radical of the organizations that make up "La Raza" is Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA). This organization HATES AMERICA. Since the 1960's, this racist group has been indoctrinating students on college campuses. MEChA OPPOSES the assimilation of immigrants into the American way of life.
In 2006, MEChA posted the following statement on the University of Orgeon's website:
"In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny."
AmeriPAC believes that American tax dollars should NOT be used to fund radical organizations that HATE AMERICA. Is this a new form of the "Fairness Doctrine" … funding the advocacy of those who want to overthrow us and "conquer" our country?
After the American southwest is flooded with immigrants, "La Raza" plans to ethnically cleanse the area. Miguel Perez of the Cal State-Northridge MEChA chapter has said,
"The ultimate ideology is the liberation of Aztlan. Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing would commence: Non-Chicanos would have to be expelled-opposition groups would be quashed because you have to keep power."
"La Raza" uses its non-profit status to take money for American taxpayers and use that money to push its racially-divisive agenda. They use OUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS to lobby Congress for MORE money.
Americans are sick of the out-of-control spending in Washington, and giving taxpayer dollars to radical, racist, Anti-American organizations that support a "RECONQUEST" of part of the United States of America. No budget cut has been so frighteningly obvious as the need to stop giving money to organizations that HATE US.
We cannot let the "La Raza" movement indoctrinate our children with false history or lobby Congress for our income any further. Please Fax every Member of Congress now and stop this movement from spreading hate…don't let America lose our national identity and our sovereignty by not confronting these cultural terrorists before it's too late!

Teen suspect detained with big arsenal

Commander credits operations for weakening cartels

TIJUANA – The drug-trafficking problem ends the day weapons are no longer sold because criminals will no longer feel safe, said Gilberto Landeros, commander of the Second Military Zone.
“Weapons revitalize criminal groups,” he said, speaking at Morelos barracks after presenting for the media a young man allegedly associated with the Sinaloa drug cartel who was detained Saturday morning, the result of an anonymous tip.
The commander identified the suspect as 18-year-old Héctor Manuel Muñoz Solís. He was allegedly transporting an arsenal in his SUV that included a .50 caliber Barrett rifle and a U.S.-made anti-tank weapon, still in its case along with the manual.
It’s the second rifle of this type confiscated by the Mexican army in less than 15 days in the Tijuana area.
The military also seized three hand grenades, a CN Romarm 7.62 x 39 caliber assault rifle, 79 clips for AK-47 and R-15 assault rifles, 2,205 cartridges of various calibers, one uniform with the logo of the PGJE (state police agency) and fake guns.
According to Landeros, the weapons were inside an olive green, 2002 Ford Expedition with Baja California plates. The vehicle was parked in the Ramón López Velarde neighborhood of the La Mesa district.
Landeros said that authorities are worried that these types of weapons are circulating in the city. He said military operations against traffickers have led to major weapons seizures.
“We’re continuing to push to dismantle organized crime,” Landeros said.
The commander said that these operations had hit organized crime hard because not only were large quantities of drugs and weapons confiscated but many people presumably linked to the drug cartels were captured.
Just in April, authorities seized in various operations a total of 7.71 tons of marijuana, 19 rifles, 7,679 cartridges and 212 clips for various weapons, and 25 pounds of explosives.
Nearly all of these operations were the result of anonymous tips. The military continues to invite the community to report any suspicious activity on a special phone line that’s available 24 hours a day, (664) 685.02.97. Or people can send a an e-mail to:,, o

Terrorist Group Setting Up Operations Near Border

Terrorist Group Setting Up Operations Near Border
Hezbollah Considered To Be More Advanced Than Al-Qaida

POSTED: 4:53 pm PDT May 4, 2011
UPDATED: 6:27 pm PDT May 4, 2011
Video at the link
SAN DIEGO -- A terrorist organization whose home base is in the Middle East has established another home base across the border in Mexico.
"They are recognized by many experts as the 'A' team of Muslim terrorist organizations," a former U.S. intelligence agent told 10News.
The former agent, referring to Shi'a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah, added, "They certainly have had successes in big-ticket bombings."
Some of the group's bombings include the U.S. embassy in Beirut and Israeli embassy in Argentina.
However, the group is now active much closer to San Diego.
"We are looking at 15 or 20 years that Hezbollah has been setting up shop in Mexico," the agent told 10News.
Since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, U.S. policy has focused on al-Qaida and its offshoots.
"They are more shooters than thinkers … it's a lot of muscles, courage, desire but not a lot of training," the agent said, referring to al-Qaida.
Hezbollah, he said, is far more advanced.
"Their operators are far more skilled … they are the equals of Russians, Chinese or Cubans," he said. "I consider Hezbollah much more dangerous in that sense because of strategic thinking; they think more long-term."
Hezbolah has operated in South America for decades and then Central America, along with their sometime rival, sometime ally Hamas.
Now, the group is blending into Shi'a Muslim communities in Mexico, including Tijuana. Other pockets along the U.S.-Mexico border region remain largely unidentified as U.S. intelligence agencies are focused on the drug trade.
"They have had clandestine training in how to live in foreign hostile territories," the agent said.
The agent, who has spent years deep undercover in Mexico, said Hezbollah is partnering with drug organizations, but which ones is not clear at this time.
He told 10News the group receives cartel cash and protection in exchange for Hezbollah expertise.
"From money laundering to firearms training and explosives training," the agent said.
For example, he tracked, along with Mexican intelligence, two Hezbollah operatives in safe houses in Tijuana and Durango
"I confirmed the participation of cartel members as well as other Hezbollah individuals living and operating out of there," he said.
Tunnels the cartels have built that cross from Mexico into the U.S. have grown increasingly sophisticated. It is a learned skill, the agent said points to Hezbollah's involvement.
"Where are the knowledgeable tunnel builders? Certainly in the Middle East," he said.
Why have Americans not heard more about Hezbollah's activities happening so close to the border?
"If they really wanted to start blowing stuff up, they could do it," the agent said.
According to the agent, the organization sees the U.S. as their "cash cow," with illegal drug and immigration operations. Many senior Hezbollah leaders are wealthy businessmen, the agent said.
"The money they are sending back to Lebanon is too important right now to jeopardize those operations," he said.
The agent said the real concern is the group's long-term goal of radicalizing Muslim communities.
"They're focusing on developing … infiltrating communities within North America," the agent told 10News.

CBP U.S. Border Patrol Uncovers Deceptive Human Smuggling Scheme In Southern California


(Thursday, May 05, 2011)

Jacumba, Calif. — U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested two male United States citizens in Jacumba on Tuesday for smuggling four undocumented Mexican nationals in a uniquely constructed compartment in the bed of a 1997 black Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck.

At approximately 2 p.m., agents on patrol stopped the 43-year-old driver and 39-year-old passenger in a pickup truck on Old Highway 80. During questioning, agents became suspicious of the men’s nervous demeanor. A search of the vehicle revealed an opening cut into the metal wall between the passenger compartment and the bed of the truck. Subsequently, agents observed an individual attempting to conceal himself in a modified compartment. The compartment consisted of a hidden cavity built inside hollowed-out wooden construction materials lying in the bed of the truck. Agents discovered four undocumented male Mexican nationals hidden inside the compartment. 

The suspected human smugglers and illegal aliens were taken into custody and transported to a local Border Patrol station for processing and further investigation. The two suspected smugglers are being held in Department of Homeland Security custody on alien smuggling charges. The vehicle was seized by the U.S. Border Patrol.

To prevent illicit smuggling of humans, drugs and other contraband, the U.S. Border Patrol maintains a high level of vigilance on major corridors of egress away from our nation’s borders. To report suspicious activity related to border security, please call (619) 498-9900.

Costs to house Illegal Alien Criminals

The government of the United States spends in excess of $1.5 billion annually to incarcerate hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens.
Figures published in a report issued this week by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) indicate that over the past five fiscal years the number of foreign nationals jailed in federal prisons has increased by 4,000 to a total of 55,000.
A corresponding increase in the illegal alien population in state prisons was revealed, as well. The number increased by 75,000 to an astounding total of nearly 300,000.
How much does it cost states to house these criminals? Says the GAO,
We estimated that selected operating costs (i.e., correctional officer salaries, medical care, food service, and utilities) associated with incarcerating criminal aliens in our nation’s state prison systems totaled $7 billion from fiscal year 2003 through fiscal year 2009. These costs ranged from about $736 million in 2003 to $1.1 billion in 2009, about a 56 percent increase.
The GAO report summarizes the findings:
The number of criminal aliens in federal prisons in fiscal year 2010 was about 55,000, and the number of SCAAP criminal alien incarcerations in state prison systems and local jails was about 296,000 in fiscal year 2009 (the most recent data available), and the majority were from Mexico. The number of criminal aliens in federal prisons increased about 7 percent from about 51,000 in fiscal year 2005 while the number of SCAAP criminal alien incarcerations in state prison systems and local jails increased about 35 percent from about 220,000 in fiscal year 2003. The time period covered by these data vary because they reflect updates since GAO last reported on these issues in 2005. Specifically, in 2005, GAO reported that the percentage of criminal aliens in federal prisons was about 27 percent of the total inmate population from 2001 through 2004.
The study indicates that almost 25 percent of prisoners housed in federal facilities are illegal aliens.
The breakdown of the data includes the following statistical information:
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) estimated that as of fiscal year 2009 the total alien — non-U.S.-citizen — population was about 25.3 million, including about 10.8 million aliens without lawful immigration status. Some aliens have been convicted and incarcerated (criminal aliens).
A story in The Hill described the political impact of the GAO’s findings:
The study comes as the immigration debate heats up on Capitol Hill and the White House. President Obama ramped up efforts this week, hosting meetings with key business, faith and political officials on the issue. And Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), the head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus's immigration task force, is trumpeting the need for immigration reform in speeches across the country.
Meanwhile, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) used the study to back his push for a fence and a wall that runs along the U.S.-Mexico border as a way to stop people from coming into the country illegally.
Information on the provenance of the criminals highlights how easily lawbreakers pass through the porous southern border. According to the report, about 68 percent of the approximately 51,000 criminal aliens incarcerated in federal prison at the end of December 2010 were citizens of Mexico, and almost 90 percent were citizens of one of eight countries, including Mexico.
Congressman King proposes a familiar solution to the problem:
We have to secure our southern border with a fence, a wall and a fence. That would drastically reduce the ability of criminal aliens to enter the United States, providing needed relief to overburdened state prison systems and to taxpayers. We also have to do a better job of removing criminal aliens who are apprehended.
The anecdotal reports of runaway recidivism among illegal aliens are supported by the figures published in the GAO report.
The data supplied by the GAO reveal that “about 249,000 criminal aliens were arrested about 1.7 million times, averaging about 7 arrests per criminal alien.”
The types of crime being committed over and over by these illegals are serious, says the GAO:
About 50 percent of the criminal aliens in our study population were arrested at least once for either assault, homicide, robbery, a sex offense, or kidnapping. About half of the criminal aliens were arrested at least once for a drug violation.
Despite the rising costs, the federal government continues to subsidize the cost of incarcerating the massive illegal alien criminal population through the program known as the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP).
The federal government bears these incarceration costs for federal prisons and reimburses states and localities for portions of their costs through the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) of the Department of Justice (DOJ).
To compile the data published in the report, the GAO analyzed a random sample of 1,000 criminal aliens.

Bureau of Consular Affairs

April 22, 2011

The Department of State has issued this Travel Warning to inform U.S. citizens traveling to and living in Mexico about the security situation in Mexico. This Travel Warning supersedes the Travel Warning for Mexico dated September 10, 2010 to consolidate and update information about the security situation and to advise the public of additional restrictions on the travel of U.S. government personnel.

Millions of U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year, including more than 150,000 who cross the border every day for study, tourism or business and at least one million U.S. citizens who live in Mexico. The Mexican government makes a considerable effort to protect U.S. citizens and other visitors to major tourist destinations. Resort areas and tourist destinations in Mexico generally do not see the levels of drug-related violence and crime reported in the border region and in areas along major trafficking routes. Nevertheless, crime and violence are serious problems and can occur anywhere. While most victims of violence are Mexican citizens associated with criminal activity, the security situation poses serious risks for U.S. citizens as well.

It is imperative that you understand the risks involved in travel to Mexico and how best to avoid dangerous situations. Common-sense precautions such as visiting only legitimate business and tourist areas during daylight hours, and avoiding areas where criminal activity might occur, can help ensure that travel to Mexico is safe and enjoyable. 

General Conditions

Since 2006, the Mexican government has engaged in an extensive effort to combat transnational criminal organizations (TCOs). The TCOs, meanwhile, have been engaged in a vicious struggle to control drug trafficking routes and other criminal activity. According to Government of Mexico figures, 34,612 people have been killed in narcotics-related violence in Mexico since December 2006. More than 15,000 narcotics-related homicides occurred in 2010, an increase of almost two-thirds compared to 2009. Most of those killed in narcotics-related violence since 2006 have been members of TCOs. However, innocent persons have also been killed as have Mexican law enforcement and military personnel.

There is no evidence that U.S. tourists have been targeted by criminal elements due to their citizenship. Nonetheless, while in Mexico you should be aware of your surroundings at all times and exercise particular caution in unfamiliar areas. Bystanders, including U.S. citizens, have been injured or killed in violent incidents in various parts of the country, especially, but not exclusively in the northern border region, demonstrating the heightened risk of violence throughout Mexico. TCOs, meanwhile, engage in a wide-range of criminal activities that can directly impact U.S. citizens, including kidnapping, armed car-jacking, and extortion that can directly impact U.S. citizens. The number of U.S. citizens reported to the Department of State as murdered in Mexico increased from 35 in 2007 to 111 in 2010. 

The Mexican government has deployed federal police and military personnel throughout the country as part of its efforts to combat the TCOs. U.S. citizens traveling on Mexican roads and highways may encounter government checkpoints, which are often staffed by military personnel. You are advised to cooperate with personnel at government checkpoints and mobile military patrols. TCOs have erected their own unauthorized checkpoints, and killed or abducted motorists who have failed to stop at them.

Violence along Mexican roads and highways is a particular concern in the northern border region. As a result, effective July 15, 2010, the U.S. Mission in Mexico imposed restrictions on U.S. government employees' travel. U.S. government employees and their families are not permitted to drive from the U.S.-Mexico border to or from the interior of Mexico or Central America. Travel by vehicle is permitted between Hermosillo and Nogales. 

While violent incidents have occurred at all hours of the day and night on both modern toll ("cuotas") highways and on secondary roads, they have occurred most frequently at night and on isolated roads. To reduce risk, you are strongly urged to travel only during daylight hours throughout Mexico, to avoid isolated roads, and to use toll roads whenever possible. For more information on road safety and crime along Mexico's roadways, see the Department of State's Country Specific Information.

Due to ongoing violence and persistent security concerns, you are urged to defer non-essential travel to the states of Tamaulipas and Michoacán, and to parts of the states of Sonora, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Sinaloa, Durango, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosi and Jalisco. Details on these locations, and other areas in which travelers should exercise caution, are below.

Violence along the U.S. - Mexico Border

You should be especially aware of safety and security concerns when visiting the northern border states of Northern Baja California, Sonora, Chihuahua, Nuevo Leon, and Tamaulipas. Much of the country's narcotics-related violence has occurred in the border region. More than a third of all U.S. citizens killed in Mexico in 2010 whose deaths were reported to the U.S. government were killed in the border cities of Ciudad Juarez and Tijuana. Narcotics-related homicide rates in the border states of Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas have increased dramatically in the past two years.  

Carjacking and highway robbery are serious problems in many parts of the border region and U.S. citizens have been murdered in such incidents. Most victims who complied with carjackers at these checkpoints have reported that they were not physically harmed. Incidents have occurred during the day and at night, and carjackers have used a variety of techniques, including bumping moving vehicles to force them to stop and running vehicles off the road at high speed. There are some indications that criminals have particularly targeted newer and larger vehicles with U.S. license plates, especially dark-colored SUVs. However, victims' vehicles have included those with both Mexican and American registration and vary in type from late model SUVs and pick-up trucks to old sedans. 

If you make frequent visits to border cities, you should vary your route and park in well-lighted, guarded and paid parking lots. Exercise caution when entering or exiting vehicles.

Large firefights between rival TCOs or TCOs and Mexican authorities have taken place in towns and cities in many parts of Mexico, especially in the border region. Firefights have occurred in broad daylight on streets and in other public venues, such as restaurants and clubs. During some of these incidents, U.S. citizens have been trapped and temporarily prevented from leaving the area. The location and timing of future armed engagements cannot be predicted. You are urged to defer travel to those areas mentioned in this Travel Warning and to exercise extreme caution when traveling throughout the northern border region.  

Northern Baja California: Targeted TCO assassinations continue to take place in Northern Baja California, including the city of Tijuana. You should exercise caution in this area, particularly at night. In late 2010, turf battles between criminal groups proliferated and resulted in numerous assassinations in areas of Tijuana frequented by U.S. citizens. Shooting incidents, in which innocent bystanders have been injured, have occurred during daylight hours throughout the city. In one such incident, an American citizen was shot and seriously wounded.

Nogales and Northern Sonora: You are advised to exercise caution in the city of Nogales. Northern Sonora is a key region in the international drug and human trafficking trades, and can be extremely dangerous for travelers. The U.S. Consulate requires that armored vehicles are used for official travel in the consular district of Nogales, including certain areas within the city of Nogales. The region west of Nogales, east of Sonoyta, and from Caborca north, including the towns of Saric, Tubutama and Altar, and the eastern edge of Sonora bordering Chihuahua, are known centers of illegal activity. You should defer non-essential travel to these areas. 

You are advised to exercise caution when visiting the coastal town of Puerto Peñasco. In the past year there have been multiple incidents of TCO-related violence, including the shooting of the city's police chief. U.S. citizens visiting Puerto Peñasco are urged to cross the border at Lukeville, AZ, to limit driving through Mexico and to limit travel to main roads during daylight hours.

Ciudad Juarez and Chihuahua: The situation in the state of Chihuahua, specifically Ciudad Juarez, is of special concern. Ciudad Juarez has the highest murder rate in Mexico. Mexican authorities report that more than 3,100 people were killed in Ciudad Juarez in 2010. Three persons associated with the Consulate General were murdered in March, 2010. You should defer non-essential travel to Ciudad Juarez and to the Guadalupe Bravo area southeast of Ciudad Juarez. U.S. citizens should also defer non-essential travel to the northwest quarter of the state of Chihuahua. From the United States, these areas are often reached through the Columbus, NM, and Fabens and Fort Hancock, TX, ports-of-entry. In both areas, U.S. citizens have been victims of narcotics-related violence. There have been incidents of narcotics-related violence in the vicinity of the Copper Canyon in Chihuahua. 

Durango, Coahuila and Zacatecas: Between 2006 and 2010, the number of narcotics-related murders in the State of Durango increased dramatically. Several areas in the state have seen sharp increases in violence and remain volatile and unpredictable. U.S. government employees are restricted from traveling to the cities of Durango and Gomez Palacio. You should defer non-essential travel to these cities. 

The State of Coahuila has also experienced an increase in violent crimes and narcotics-related murders. U.S. government employees are restricted from traveling to the area known as "La Laguna", including the city of Torreon, and the city of Saltillo within the state. You should defer non-essential travel to this area, as well as to the cities of Piedras Negras and Ciudad Acuña due to frequent incidents of TCO-related violence.

The northwestern portion of the state of Zacatecas has become notably dangerous and insecure. Robberies and carjackings are occurring with increased frequency and both local authorities and residents have reported a surge in observed TCO activity. This area is remote, and local authorities are unable to regularly patrol it or quickly respond to incidents that occur there. The Consulate General in Monterrey restricts travel for U.S. government employees to the city of Fresnillo and the area extending northwest from Fresnillo along Highway 45 (Fresnillo-Sombrete) between Highways 44 and 49. In addition, highway 49 northwards from Fresnillo through Durango and in to Chihuahua is isolated and should be considered dangerous. You should defer non-essential travel to these areas.

Monterrey and Nuevo Leon: The level of violence and insecurity in Monterrey remains elevated. Local police and private patrols do not have the capacity to deter criminal elements or respond effectively to security incidents. As a result of a Department of State assessment of the overall security situation, on September 10, 2010, the Consulate General in Monterrey became a partially unaccompanied post with no minor dependents of U.S. government employees permitted.  

TCOs continue to use stolen cars and trucks to create roadblocks or "blockades" on major thoroughfares, preventing the military or police from responding to criminal activity in Monterrey and the surrounding areas. Travelers on the highways between Monterrey and the United States (notably through Nuevo Laredo and Matamoros/Reynosa) have been targeted for robbery that has resulted in violence. They have also been caught in incidents of gunfire between criminals and Mexican law enforcement. In 2010, TCOs kidnapped guests out of reputable hotels in the downtown Monterrey area, blocking off adjoining streets to prevent law enforcement response. TCOs have also regularly attacked local government facilities, prisons and police stations, and engaged in public shootouts with the military and between themselves. Pedestrians and innocent bystanders have been killed in these incidents. 

The number of kidnappings and disappearances in Monterrey, and increasingly throughout Monterrey's consular district, is of particular concern. Both the local and expatriate communities have been victimized and local law enforcement has provided little to no response. In addition, police have been implicated in some of these incidents. Travelers and residents are strongly advised to lower their profile and avoid displaying any evidence of wealth that might draw attention.

Tamaulipas: You should defer non-essential travel to the state of Tamaulipas. In an effort to prevent the military or police from responding to criminal activity, TCOs have set up roadblocks or "blockades" in various parts of Nuevo Laredo in which armed gunmen carjack and rob unsuspecting drivers. These blockades occur without warning and at all times, day and night. The Consulate General prohibits employees from entering the entertainment zone in Nuevo Laredo known as "Boys Town" because of concerns about violent crime in that area. U.S. government employees are currently restricted from travelling on the highway between Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey, as well as on Mexican Highway 2 towards Reynosa or Ciudad Acuña due to security concerns.

Be aware of the risks posed by armed robbery and carjacking on state highways throughout Tamaulipas. In January 2011, a U.S. citizen was murdered in what appears to have been a failed carjacking attempt. While no highway routes through Tamaulipas are considered safe, many of the crimes reported to the U.S. Consulate General in Matamoros took place along the Matamoros-Tampico highway, particularly around San Fernando and the area north of Tampico.

Crime and Violence in Other Parts of Mexico

While security concerns are particularly acute in the northern border region, you should be aware of situations that could affect your safety in other parts of Mexico.

Sinaloa and Southern Sonora: One of Mexico's most powerful TCOs is based in the state of Sinaloa. Since 2006, more homicides have occurred in the state's capital city of Culiacan than in any other city in Mexico, with the exception of Ciudad Juarez. You should defer non-essential travel to Culiacan and exercise extreme caution when visiting the rest of the state. Travel off the toll roads in remote areas of Sinaloa is especially dangerous and should be avoided.

In the last year, the city of Mazatlan has experienced a level of violence, primarily confrontations between TCOs, not seen before. In 2010 there were over 300 narcotics-related murders within the city, compared to fewer than 100 in 2009. You are encouraged to visit Mazatlan during daylight hours and limit the time you spend outside tourist centers. Exercise caution during late night and early morning hours when most violent crimes occur. 

Highway robbery and carjacking are ongoing security concerns for travelers on the Mexican toll road Highway 15 in Sonora and on Maxipista Benito Juarez in Sinaloa. These highways are known to be particularly dangerous at night when roadside robberies occur. When traveling in Sinaloa, U.S. government employees are required to use armored vehicles and may only travel in daylight hours.

San Luis Potosi: In February 2011, one U.S. government employee was killed and another wounded when they were attacked in their U.S. government vehicle on Highway 57 near Santa Maria del Rio. The incident remains under investigation. Cartel violence and highway lawlessness have increased throughout the state and are a continuing security concern. All official U.S. government employees and their families have been advised to defer travel on the entire stretch of highway 57D in San Luis Potosi as well as travel in the state east of highway 57D towards Tamaulipas. You should defer non-essential travel in these areas.

Nayarit and Jalisco: Official U.S. government employees are prohibited from traveling to Colotlan, Jalisco, and Yahualica, Jalisco, both near the Zacatecas border, because of an increasingly volatile security situation. Concerns include roadblocks placed by individuals posing as police or military personnel and recent gun battles between rival TCOs involving automatic weapons. You should defer non-essential travel to these cities. In addition, the border areas between Jalisco state and the states of Zacatecas and Michoacán, as well as southern Nayarit state including the city of Tepic, have been sites of violence and crime involving TCOs. You should exercise extreme caution when traveling in these areas. Due to recent TCO-mounted road blockades between the Guadalajara airport and the Guadalajara metropolitan areas, U.S. government employees are only authorized to travel between Guadalajara and the Guadalajara Airport during daylight hours. 

Michoacán: You should defer non-essential travel to the State of Michoacán, which is home to another of Mexico's most dangerous TCOs, "La Familia". Attacks on government officials and law enforcement and military personnel, and other incidents of TCO-related violence, have occurred throughout Michoacan, including in and around the capital of Morelia and in the vicinity of the world famous butterfly sanctuaries in the eastern part of the State.

Guerrero and Morelos: You should exercise extreme caution when traveling in the northwestern part of the state of Guerrero, which has a strong TCO presence. Do not take the dangerous, isolated road through Ciudad Altamirano to the beach resorts of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo and exercise caution traveling on the coastal road between Acapulco and Ixtapa due to the risk of roadblocks and carjackings. Numerous incidents of narcotics-related violence have occurred in the city of Cuernavaca, in the State of Morelos, a popular destination for American language students.

Downtown Acapulco and surrounding areas have seen a significant increase in narcotics-related violence in the last year. Incidents have included daylight gunfights and murders of law enforcement personnel and some have resulted in the deaths of innocent bystanders. Due to the unpredictable nature of this violence, you should exercise extreme caution when visiting downtown Acapulco. To reduce risks, tourists should not visit the downtown area at night and should remain in clearly identifiable tourist areas. In general, the popular tourist area of Diamante just south of the city has not been affected by the increasing violence.
