In another case of politicians not having a clue what's really going on in this country, an interesting exchange took place in Washington this week. Three Democrat legislators spoke to reporters about what they claim is "anti-immigrant coverage" by conservative media outlets. Apparently, they think floods of illegal aliens crossing into America and the crime and violence at the border are just overblown incidents developed by conservatives to attack our neighbor to the South.
After they spoke, the Democrats were asked if they realized that the State Department had issued a "travel alert warning Americans about military-like 'combat' along the southern U.S. border in Mexico, where Americans are being kidnapped and murdered." None of the legislators knew about it.

As reported by Cybercast News Service, when asked about the alert, Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) said, "I haven't heard about the report specifically."
Reps. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Hilda Solis (D-CA) also spoke to Cybercast News Service and said "they had no knowledge of the travel alert but were aware of the volatility along the U.S. southern border."
Volatility? Americans are being killed and yet all these liberals want to do is pander! The State Department alert states that "violent criminal activity fueled by a war between criminal organizations struggling for control of the lucrative narcotics trade continues along the U.S.-Mexico border." Although the alert states that the attacks are primarily aimed at "members of drug trafficking organizations, Mexican police forces, criminal justice officials, and journalists," the alert goes on to state that "foreign visitors and residents, including Americans, have been among the victims of homicides and kidnappings in the border region."
[blockquote]
Armed robberies and carjackings, apparently unconnected to the narcotics-related violence, have increased in Tijuana and Ciudad Juarez. Dozens of U.S. citizens were kidnapped and/or murdered in Tijuana in 2007. Public shootouts have occurred during daylight hours near shopping areas.
Criminals are armed with a wide array of sophisticated weapons. In some cases, assailants have worn full or partial police or military uniforms and have used vehicles that resemble police vehicles.[/blockquote]
Side note: In the California area where Rep. Duncan Hunter had a border fence built, crime and drug activity went DOWN!

In the Cybercast News Service interview, Rep. Solis expressed her concern about "the murder of women" but added, "I'm more concerned about people having their civil rights violated here.

" More concerned about the civil rights of law-breaking illegal aliens than Americans being the targets of violence and murder? Just exactly what country do you represent?

According to Cybercast News Service, "Speakers at the briefing said that CNN and Fox News Channel should be held accountable for television personalities who have 'played major roles in creating this anti-immigrant hysteria.'" Let's send that message to the Americans who are victims of border violence... I'm sure they'll find comfort in it.[/align]

Laredo, Texas is like a war zone. Nobody in their right mind goes near the border towns anymore which makes matters worse, since the towns relied a great deal on tourist money. It's all driven by drugs and spilling over to the US side on occasion. The drug wars in San Antonio were bad enough, I got tired of hearing gunshots in the middle of the night........[:@]

Nice try, no just illegal immigration, my truck is from mexico, but no one had to sneak it in to the USA, why don't you ask someone who went through the process to do it the right way, what they think about your views.

Doing it "the right way" can take a decade and lots of money that most people down there obviously don't have.

Not to be a dick ,but with that thinking when my truck breaks down is it ok to go steal one? I mean it will take me a long time to save the money to do it "the right way". I know it's a strech but new truck = $50,000 , somebody that sneaks in to the country and gets locked up or hospitalized = $???? . Not that different now.I understand things may be bad where they are from but our sitiuation isn't
all that great now either

12 volt, if I remember correctly from another post, you're not white, but you are Mexican or Latino, if I am remembering correctly, I think there's a difference when a non white or black American goes down there vs an American thats of Mexican heritage.
