Got to love Reuters. As you read this article about a human smuggler getting his car shot up on the border you naturally would assume that it was done by a band of roving redneck racists or rogue border agents.
Unknown gunmen fired on a truck packed with suspected illegal immigrants in southern Arizona early on Friday, killing two people and wounding a third, police said.The gunmen killed a man and a woman traveling in a pickup truck near Green Valley, some 30 miles south of Tucson, Pima County Sheriff’s Department said.
Spokeswoman Dawn Barkman said the dead were believed to be Mexican immigrants traveling with three family groups from the poor southern Mexican state of Chiapas.Barkman said two children were among at least 14 people packed into the extended-cab pickup truck.
But then you get to the meat of the matter buried at the end of the article. That key phrase is “increased violence among smugglers”.
Police say increased security on the U.S.-Mexico border has made human trafficking a more profitable activity, resulting in increased violence among smugglers. A smuggling ring that Arizona police say flew thousands of illegal immigrants across the United States from the Phoenix area was busted earlier this week with 16 people indicted, authorities said on Thursday.

So only if you read to the end of the article do you recognize that smugglers are attacking each other on the border. Those that are entrusted to protect our borders now have to face a gun war amongst those who are smuggling illegal aliens across the border.
