Before we get into some details, check out this headline from FoxNews.com: Mexican Gangs Maintain Permanent Lookout Bases in Hills of Arizona. Did you read it? Ok... rest five seconds and read it again. This is completely insane!
Mexican drug cartels have set up shop on American soil, maintaining lookout bases in strategic locations in the hills of southern Arizona from which their scouts can monitor every move made by law enforcement officials, federal agents tell Fox News.
The scouts are supplied by drivers who bring them food, water, batteries for radios -- all the items they need to stay in the wilderness for a long time.
"To say that this area is out of control is an understatement," said an agent who patrols the area and asked not to be named. "We (federal border agents), as well as the Pima County Sheriff Office and the Bureau of Land Management, can attest to that."
Not only are the drug and illegal alien traffickers setting up bases on American soil, they are also issuing threats. As Joshua Rhett Miller reports, "Police officers in a small Arizona border city are on heightened alert following a tip that a Mexican drug cartel will put them in its crosshairs if they conduct off-duty busts."
The threat stems from a marijuana seizure made this month by two off-duty police officers riding on horseback in an unincorporated area east of Nogales, a city of roughly 20,000, Police Chief Jeffrey Kirkham told FoxNews.com.
"The word was that these particular officers would be targeted if they were ever in that area again and were not on duty and intercepted any drug trafficking," Kirkham said. "It said they should look the other way."
So, we have Mexican gangs virtually controlling parts of the United States and making threats against American law enforcement officials, but does it stop there? Of course not. Mexico is also SUING Arizona over its new illegal immigration law.
Mexico on Tuesday asked a federal court in Arizona to declare the state's new immigration law unconstitutional, arguing that the country's own interests and its citizens' rights are at stake.
Lawyers for Mexico on Tuesday submitted a legal brief in support of one of five lawsuits challenging the law. The law will take effect July 29 unless implementation is blocked by a court.
Arizona's new law known as SB-1070 "requires police investigating another incident or crime to ask people about their immigration status if there's a "reasonable suspicion" they're in the country illegally. It also makes being in Arizona illegally a misdemeanor, and it prohibits seeking day-labor work along the state's streets." This law, as many of you know, is basically a restatement of federal law... a federal law that the federal government does not enforce. In addition, this law is much more lax than Mexican immigration law. However, that point seems to be missed in Mexico's lawsuit.
And the list grows... Mexican gangs controlling parts of the U.S. and making threats against American cops. In addition, Mexico is suing Arizona to make sure that the illegal alien "business" keeps right on flowing. Does it stop there? Unfortunately, yes, because there is NO action being taken by Obama and his team!
Just watch any interview with a Democrat "strategist" regarding what's going on in Arizona, and they will pull out their "comprehensive immigration reform" talking points. Just like Obama is doing with the Gulf oil spill, they are taking a situation that needs immediate action and turning it into a call for some left-wing legislation. Our country is being occupied!!!! That sentence alone should be a ringing call for action! Laws are being broken. People in Arizona are being killed and threatened. Arizona takes action, and what does Obama do? Does he send troops in to wipe out the gangs? No, he's going to sue Arizona! What's wrong with this picture?
