Tijuana Mexico Crime 2010

Mandy asks…

Since Mexico asked the US to stop deporting serious criminals, Is Obama going to bend over and listen?

The Obama Administration seems to be heeding to Mexico’s request by openly halting the deportation of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. Additionally, the administration has a “backdoor amnesty” plan to legalize millions of undocumented aliens in case Congress doesn’t pass legislation to do it.

In a flabbergasting request, a coalition of Mexican lawmakers has asked the United States to stop deporting illegal immigrants who have been convicted of serious crimes in American courts.

The preposterous demand was made at a recent southern California conference in which the mayors of four Mexican cities that border the U.S. gathered to discuss cross-border issues. The only American mayor who attended the biannual event was San Diego’s Jerry Sanders, evidently because his city hosted it this year at a fancy downtown hotel.

Among the cross-border topics that were addressed at the conference was the deportation of Mexican citizens who have committed violent crimes in the U.S. The felons are persona non grata in their communities, say the mayors of Tijuana, Ciudad Juarez, Nogales and Nuevo Laredo. They want U.S. officials to stem the deportation of such convicts to their cities, according to a local newspaper report that covered the conference.

To support the request, the mayor (Jose Reyes Ferriz) of Mexico’s most violent city, Ciudad Juarez, pointed out that of 80,000 people deported to his community in the past three years nearly 30,000 had committed serious crimes in the U.S. Around 7,000 had served sentences for rape and 2,000 for murder. The criminal deportees have contributed to the escalating drug-cartel violence in his city, Mayor Ferriz said, so he wants the U.S. to make other arrangements when prison sentences are completed.

If this seems unbelievable, consider that a few years ago Mexico’s government formally complained that too many Mexicans had been repatriated from the U.S. and that the entire country was overwhelmed with demands for housing, jobs and schools. Various Mexican legislators publicly chastised the U.S. for sending illegal immigrants back, explaining that the country could not accommodate the “repatriated.”

Tijuana answers:

Probably, and he’ll apologize for causing them to become criminals through American imperialism.

Thomas asks…

Is Mexico saying hispanic people must be bad or is Mexico racist?

CANCUN, Mexico – Drug cartels are increasingly recruiting common criminals and quickly converting them into killers, the head of Mexico‘s federal police said Wednesday.

Public Safety Secretary Genaro Garcia Luna said new drug cartel recruits can reach the position of hit man in a month, a process that used to take 15 years.

Garcia Luna said his agency has began combatting common crime as it fights drug cartels in response to the changing nature of organized crime in Mexico.

“For too long the fight against organized crime has been concentrated on the leadership and now it’s important to fight crime at every stage,” Garcia Luna told representatives from more than 100 countries attending the annual International Conference for Drug Control.

The drug cartels are recruiting low-level lawbreakers such as street drug dealers and robbers, a tactic first used by the brutal Zetas drug gang and now being copied by other cartels.

The Zetas, originally ex-soldiers acting as hit men for Mexico‘s Gulf drug cartel before breaking off on their own, have no geographic concentration like other cartels and therefore have shown up in disparate parts of the country, authorities said. They operate almost like franchises, sending one member to an area they want to control to recruit local criminals.

Officials at the drug control conference say the Zetas have now spread their reign of terror from the border with the United States to the border with Guatemala — and across it.

Guatemala Security Vice Minister Mario Castaneda said the Zetas are recruiting former elite Guatemalan soldiers and training them in camps in the Central American country.

At least six former “kaibiles” — Guatemalan soldiers trained in counterinsurgency — linked to the Zetas have been arrested in Guatemala, Castaneda said.

Mexico first warned in 2005 that the Zetas were recruiting “kaibiles.”

Guatemalan authorities are also investigating military personnel for allegedly stealing weapons from the army and selling them to drug traffickers, Castaneda said.

“We have documented at least three robberies” of army weapons, he said.

In 2009, Guatemalan police seized 563 grenades and more than 3,800 bullets from the Zetas that investigators said belonged to the army.
Where do they get their guns?Guatemalan authorities are also investigating military personnel for allegedly stealing weapons from the army and selling them to drug traffickers, Castaneda said.

And they are of all ages. How do we know the dream act kid is not a member of the cartels. Seems they are getting caught committing serious crimes at a young age.

Drug cartels lure teens into violent world of traffickingBy Kristina Davis, UNION-TRIBUNE
Sunday, December 19, 2010

The Mexican army’s arrest this month of a 14-year-old, San Diego-born boy who said he worked as a drug cartel hitman was a shocking example of a juvenile being pulled into the violent world of drug smuggling.
But using children on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border for such criminal enterprises isn’t new.
Three days before Edgar Jimenez Lugo and his two sisters were arrested on Dec. 2 as they prepared to fly from an airport near Cuernavaca, Mexico, to Tijuana, a 15-year-old San Diego boy was arrested at the Otay Mesa Port of Entry trying to smuggle into the United States three pounds of methamphetamine worth an estimated $57,000.
There is a great difference between being a drug courier and beheading four people, as Edgar has admitted to doing, but both teens illustrate the range of ways cartels are using children to get their business done.
In 2008 and 2009, the concern shifted to teenage drug mules. Law-enforcement authorities saw a sudden uptick in the number of kids being stopped at the border with marijuana, methamphetamine and cocaine strapped to their abdomens, thighs and lower legs.
“Cartels use these juveniles, telling them, ‘Nothing is going to happen to you because you’re a juvenile. Here’s some quick cash,’” said Angelica De Cima, a customs spokeswoman. “These kids are putting themselves at risk and they don’t understand the consequences.”

Did you ever think that our country would ever be raising children who participate in beheading?

Mexico: U.S. teen specialized in beheadings
Arrested near Mexico City before flying back to his native California, he admits killing at least 4 for cartel
Dec. 3, 2010, 10:59PM

MEXICO CITY — Mexican troops captured a 14-year-old U.S. citizen said to have specialized in beheadings as an assassin for one of Mexico‘s most vicious drug gangs. His pay: $2,500 a killing.
Soldiers detained Edgar Jimenez late Thursday at an airport outside Cuernavaca, 50 miles south of Mexico City, as he prepared to board a flight to Tijuana. Officials said he was accompanied by a sister and was heading to his native San Diego, where his mother lives.
Presented to the news media Friday morning, Jimenez said he had beheaded at least four adversaries of the so-called South Pacific Cartel, a remnant of the Beltran Leyva crime syndicate. The small, mop-haired boy known as El Ponchis, or “The Stoner,” said he committed the killings while stoned on marijuana and at the orders of the gang boss in command of the Cuernavaca area. Authorities said he was caught with two cell phones that held photographs of tortured victims.
“I didn’t know what I was doing,” Jimenez said, according to media accounts, but added that he was paid $2,500 per killing. Army officials accused Jimenez’s sister, identified as 19-year-old Elizabeth, of also working for the gang. Neither has been formerly charged.
Jimenez said he was sorry to have gotten involved both with Mexican gangsters and with killing people. If he beats the charges, he said, he’ll change his ways.
“I didn’t join,” he said of his gangland career, which reportedly began when he was 12. “They pulled me in.”
Security forces had been looking for Jimenez since he appeared last month along with other teens in YouTube videos, brandishing weapons and bragging of their gangland exploits.
Mexican officials say he is a U.S. citizen, and American officials are trying to confirm his nationality.
Wouldn’t be the first
If he is, indeed, proved to have committed killings, Jimenez will hardly be the first U.S. teenager involved in the Mexican gangs.
Several Laredo teenagers were convicted in 2007 for carrying out killings on behalf of the Zetas, the violent organization entrenched in Nuevo Laredo and other towns along the South Texas border.
One of those teens, Rosalio “Bart” Reta, killed his first victim at age 13 and might have murdered more than 30 others before being captured. Reta was convicted and is now serving a 70-year sentence in a Texas state prison.
Once among Mexico‘s most powerful gangs, the Beltran Leyva organization has fallen into brutal internecine war since Mexican marines killed kingpin Arturo Beltran Leyva last December.
The slain drug lord’s underlings — including Laredo native Edgar Valdez Villarreal, also known as La Barbie – quickly began fighting with one another to replace him.
Their feuding has killed hundreds of people this year in and near Cuernavaca and throughout neighboring Mexico and Guerrero states, including the beach resort of Acapulco.
Many of the those killed have been beheaded, which in the past four years has become an nauseatingly banal terror tactic of the gangsters.
Among the victims were more than 50 men thrown down a 500-foot abandoned mine shaft outside the colonial tourist town of Taxco, and 20 Mexican tourists massacred together in Acapulco, apparently in a case of mistaken identity.

Is this the face of the New America since we no longer want the middle class is this what we can expect from our children?

Tijuana answers:
