Shootout on US-Mexican border

But, but I thought the U.S. border with Mexico was secure? If I lived near this part of the border I’d be concerned.

A massive gun battle between rival drug and migrant-trafficking gangs near the U.S. border left 21 people dead on Thursday, prosecutors said.

The clash occurred in a sparsely populated area about 12 miles (20 kilometers) from the Arizona border — a prime corridor for immigrant and drug smuggling.

Sonora’s Attorney General‘s Office said in a statement that nine people were captured by police at the scene of the shooting, six of whom had been wounded in the confrontation. Authorities at the scene found seven rifles.

Officials did not say why the gunfight had broken out, but powerful and well-armed Mexican gangs often fight for control of smuggling routes into the United States. (Source: Fox News)

Yet another reason to build the fence NOW!  And let Arizona enforce the law since the Feds won’t.

  2. Well the President says it is anyway. But we just need to go by the laws on the books and people need to come in legally instead of illegally. We cant have drug dealers and murderers becoming citizens just to vote for some politicians it wouldn’t be right. Sincerely ; George
