Drug Cartels Force Illegals into Prostitution, Criminal Activity in US;

If the US and Mexico don’t work more effectively in both countries to stem the tide of organized crime, there will be as many dead on this side of the border as in Mexico.  Just this week, 72 dead South and Central Americans were discovered on a ranch 90 miles from our border.

The survivor of the massacre may have confirmed the assessment of a Mexican security expert that the deaths may have resulted from either non-payment of money for safe passage into the US  or of additional mone.tion,  acting as drug couriers, etc.  Now imagine the number of successfully smuggled illegals now in the US carrying out the criminal activities agreed to .

The fact that there are illegals in this country controlled by the cartels should  make it clear to this Administration that a permanent solution to a porous border needs to be enacted – and soon.  The crime stats indicate

But there are other crimes, many of which are drug-related. Furthermore, illegal immigrants and smuggling organizations have been linked to some specific violent crimes in Arizona. Local officials frequently cite the rash of kidnappings in their state in defending the new law. The Department of Justice’s latest National Drug Threat Assessment says there were 267 kidnappings in Phoenix last year and 299 in 2008. The report said the victims usually have a connection to immigrant smuggling groups or drug traffickers.

The report also showed that assaults against U.S. law enforcement on the southwestern border are on the rise. The report found that the number of attacks on Border Patrol agents increased 46 percent to 1,097 incidents in fiscal 2008. The report said the assaults were mostly related to immigrant smuggling.[
