2 Shot on Mexico Border, Article Buries Likely Culprits


Smuggling-aliensGot 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.  Reuters.com.

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.

      I had heard that there was turf wars amongst the smugglers, also.

      Makes you wonder if these two weren’t witnesses or
      informants with the recent arrests… and there are
      still those that think that human trafficking, money
      laundering and drug trafficking can take place on an
      island of less than 100,000 without it effecting the
      common people.

      I live in Texas, and have traveled a bit across the Mexican border by car. You don’t want to make any unnecessary stops, or encounter anyone you don’t have to. I have a friend who drove into a town a couple of hours into Mexico and found vaqueros riding around on horseback with pistols. These smugglers are all part of a group. I imagine that their operatives on the U.S. side are pretty well paid in their world. This news story suggests that a jealous “mule” who didn’t get the victims’ illegal immigration business got pissed off and had them killed. Now, if it had happened in East Texas, I may have thought there were rednecks involved. As it turns out, San Antonio is a real career destination for a great many Mexican immigrants and tourists.
