Immigration law

If you're thinking of traveling to Mexico or if you think our present Immigration system is in desperate need of repair, be sure to check this out.

Immigration Reform? Let's Try Mexico's Immigration Law!

They don't need to worry about me coming to Mexico. Thirty years ago it was fun, now it's just plain dangerous.

Similar if not the same as Japanese Immigration Law.

"Illegal" immigrant / alien, doesn't that pretty much sum it up?

We are headed there the first week of June. Been going down for the past 40 years or so without a problem. You just have to avoid the nasty areas, just like here in the States.

We've traveled to and through Mexico for over 30 years, since the days of 80 centavo a liter Super Mexolina ($.24 a gallon) gasoline.

The biggest danger is automobile accidents, we've known too many people who were fatalities or were seriously injured on Mexican highways.

The major factor discouraging our traveling south of the border these days is the long delays crossing through US Customs, a couple of years ago after spending Christmas and New Years on the beach at San Blas, Nayarit, we were in line at Nogales before sunrise, and watched the sunset on the 60 mile drive from Nogales to Tucson!

I got this from a rancher who lives north and close to the big river and have these mules coming across their property.
The Nueva Federacion (cartel del golfo, cartel de Sinaloa, la familia Michoacana) and La Compania (los Zetas) have reached this city across the Rio Grande from Del Rio Tx . The above three cartels have united and are battling the Los Zetas (who used to be their enforcers but took control themselves) for control of Piedras Negras and Acuna. The Juarez Cartel (Vicente Carillo Fuentes) are battling the Sinaloa Cartel (Chapo Guzman) for control of Ojinaga and areas north towards Juarez. All points in between will come under fire at some point. We are hoping is stays south of the river. There were four injured, one killed across the river from Alcala, Tx which is south of Ft. Hancock. The four came across the river just to get away for medical help. We are seeing this daily up and down the river from El Paso to Brownsville. And the ones that come across are bad guys too, from one cartel or the other. They're street level though, no big fish.
Subject: Fw: Del Rio

How true is this. Been told 15 prople were killed in Acuna over the weekend.

F. Y. I. only, unconfirmed, but take heed

The Mexican press and the Del Rio press are not reporting on this--I understand they have all been threatened to keep it out of the news so please see this gets passed around

Storm over Coahuila

“El Diablo está suelto en Acuña”, the devil is loose in Acuña is how one resident conveyed the feeling as the cartel battles between the Nueva Federacion (cartel del golfo, cartel de Sinaloa, la familia Michoacana) and La Compania (los Zetas) have reached this city across the Rio Grande from Del Rio Tx .

Recent reports out of Acuña describe a besieged population as increasingly desperate Zeta cartel gunmen have held the city in a reign of terror. The municipal police have been unable or unwilling to uphold law and order and have been labeled “polizetas” (police collaborators tied to the Zetas.).

Over the weekend narcomanteles (drug cartel banners) appeared with the following message:
A la gente de esta comunidad, por favor no salgan a las calles en la noche, estamos limpiando la ciudad de Zetas.
(To the people of this community, please do not leave your homes at night, we are cleaning this city of Zetas )

Unconfirmed reports speak of nightly gunfire and levantones (abductions) of persons associated with the Zetas. What has been confirmed is that 2 warehouses belonging to Dulceria Begu were destroyed by arson. Two to three family members were killed in the blazes which were extinguished with the help of the Del Rio Tx fire department.

This area of Coahuila has been the domain of the Zetas and along with Nuevo Laredo was the last firm foothold of this cartel on the border with the U.S. . They have been eliminated from the remaining border towns in Tamaulipas and from Piedras Negras, Coahuila.

In other news from Coahuila, Governor Humberto Moreira has requested the presence of 1,000 federal police in the industrial city of Torreon due to high levels of crime and insecurity that are affecting investment and growth. This would match the deployment of 1,000 state police already in Torreon according to the Governor.

So far this week in Torreon there has been 8 deaths attributed to organized crime. This brings the total number of deaths caused by organized crime in the city to 133 for this year.

On Sunday May 2, gunmen in two pickups and two taxis opened fire on a group of people in the Lucio Blanco neighborhood. Five fatalities were reported and four others were injured in the attack, with two persons in critical condition.

On Tuesday May 4, at 1 AM, two men were executed in the Nueva Aurora neighborhood and at 1 PM one male was killed in a shootout outside of the Galerias Laguna mall, causing a panic among shoppers and employees at the mall.

A coordinated response by elements of the Mexican army and state police to all 3 incidents failed to arrest any suspects.

YES...Our thoughts exactly. We have a hard time trying to understand why 'Illegal' is no longer treated as 'Illegal'. Especially when considering what we're going to leave for our grandchildren, their children...

OUR border towns are a good example of what is rapidly spreading and we need to support the recent Arizona policies. We have to start somewhere. That's my opinion.
