Tijuana Mexico Crime 2010

Sandy asks…

can i get deported while crossing the border?

i am 17 and want to leave to mexico like in 2 weeks can immigration deport me while crossing the border if im underage?PLEASE HELP I NEED TO KNOW..OH AND I HAVE A BABY BORN HERE IS THERE A PROBLEM?

Tijuana answers:

Yes you can get deported if they catch you crossing the border and it is a Federal class B Criminal misdemeanor and if you get caught a second time then they can charge you with a felony if they desire. If you come over without getting caught then it is a Federal Civil Infraction but it is getting harder and harder for undocumented people to get jobs since many companies require you to be on the E-verify system which you won’t be. There are very few states that offer a drivers privilege card or drivers license to undocumented people. I would think this action out very carefully.

Bringing your baby with you will also cause issues for the baby later in life since in order to work and many times to attend certain schools (colleges) you need a valid social security number. It is also very dangerous crossing the border, many girls, women get raped and robbed while trying to come across. I would strongly consider trying to apply for a student visa. You’re chances are getting a legal visa are very low although the risk of crossing the border and having a violent crime happen to you is very high.

Harm to illegal immigrants
There are significant dangers associated with illegal immigration including potential death when crossing the border. Since the implementation of Operation Gatekeeper immigrants have chosen more dangerous routes to get into the country.[142] Most deaths are due to dehydration caused by the intense heats of the Arizona desert and the treacherous desert roads. Deaths also occur while resisting arrest. In May 2010, the National Human Rights Commission in Mexico accused Border Patrol agents of tasering illegal immigrant Anastasio Hernández-Rojas to death. Media reports that Hernández-Rojas started a physical altercation with patrol agents and later autopsy findings concluded that the suspect had elevated methampehatine blood levels which contributed to his death. The foreign ministry in Mexico City has demanded an explanation from San Diego and federal authorities, according to Tijuana newspapers.[143] According to the US Border Agency, there were 987 assaults on US Border Agents in 2008 and there were a total of 12 people killed by agents in 2007 and 2008.[144]

Furthermore, Amnesty International has taken concern re garding the excessive brutality inflicted upon illegal immigrants.[145] The organization states that its main concerns are:

Numerous evidence and reports detailing cruel and excessive force by Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) in which victims were “subjected to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, including beatings, sexual assault, denial of medical attention, and denial of food, water and warmth for long periods”
Lack of legal representation and advice when brought to court, especially illegal immigrant children who are given no rights to a lawyer
The rapid branching of INS to increase security around border patrol but no such increase in the Office of the Inspector General, which conducts investigations of complaints.
[edit] Slavery
Indian, Russian, Thai, and Chinese women have been reportedly brought to the United States under false pretenses. “As many as 50,000 people are illicitly trafficked into the United States annually, according to a 1999 CIA study. Once here, they’re forced to work as prostitutes, sweatshop laborers, farmhands, and servants in private homes.” US authorities call it “a modern form of slavery.”[146] [147]

[edit] Prostitution
The Coalition Against Trafficking in Women has reported scores of cases where women were forced to prostitute themselves. “Trafficking in women plagues the United States as much as it does underdeveloped nations. Organized prostitution networks have migrated from metropolitan areas to small cities and suburbs. Women trafficked to the United States have been forced to have sex with 400-500 men to pay off $40,000 in debt for their passage.” [148] At least 45,000 Central American children attempt to illegally immigrate to the United States every year and many of them finish in brothels as sex slaves, according to Manuel Capellin, director in Honduras of the humanitarian organization House Alliance.[149]

[edit] Death

Death by exposure has been reported in the deserts, particularly during the hot summer season.[150] “Exposure to the elements” encompasses hypothermia, dehydration, heat strokes, drowning, and suffocation. Also, illegal immigrants may die or be injured when they attempt to avoid law enforcement. Martinez points out that engaging in high speed pursuits while attempting to escape arrest can lead to death.[151]

Jenny asks…

When is the media going to blame the Tea Party for this one?

http://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/08/31/mexico.bar.attack/index.html?hpt=T2

Tijuana answers:

Why is it the CNN story only gives part of the information?
Fox has included more information which is important to the data.
Http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/08/31/killed-cancun-bar-attack/

At least eight people were killed when Molotov cocktails were thrown into a bar in the Mexican town of Cancun, a resort area popular with U.S. Tourists, officials said Tuesday.

“The death of eight people is confirmed. Six on site — including four women — and two others in hospital, also women,” prosecutor Francisco Alor Quezada, from the southeastern state of Quintana Roo, told AFP.

According to witnesses, six men threw the Molotov cocktails at the establishment which had reported two attempts at extortion, apparently by the Zetas drug cartel.

Local media reports said the attack happened at around 1am local time Tuesday. It set off a fire which destroyed the bar, which is in a residential area not frequented by tourists, officials said.

The brutal Zetas, first set up by former paramilitaries in the 1990s, have grown in force since splitting off from the powerful Gulf gang, whom they are now fighting for control of drug trafficking routes.

They are suspected in last week’s massacre of 72 migrants in northeast Mexico and many kidnapping, killing and extortion cases.

Cancun has seen sporadic attacks and gruesome discoveries of bodies in wells and graves as violence has escalated since President Felipe Calderon deployed tens of thousands of soldiers to take on organized crime gangs in 2006.

More than 28,000 have died in drug-related violence nationwide since then, according to official figures.

Or are Liberals going to say that Fox is just giving us more data to prevent Tea Partiers from being blamed, or to support an anti illegal immigration stance?
Did CNN not report for years that travel to Mexico was not safe?
If so than what is this from CNN?
U.S. Extends travel warning to Mexico
http://www.cnn.com/2010/TRAVEL/05/07/mexico.travel.warning/index.html
“Washington (CNN) — The U.S. State Department on Thursday extended a travel warning that had been issued for Mexico because of the region’s high level of drug and gang violence.

The State Department warning also notes that the authorized departure of family members of U.S. Government personnel from U.S. Consulates in the northern Mexico border cities of Tijuana, Nogales, Ciudad Juarez, Nuevo Laredo, Monterrey and Matamoros has been extended.”

Sandra asks…

How do you feel about Barack Obama & the ATF supplying guns to Drug Cartels?

( Jorge Ramos: “What are we talking about? We are talking precisely about the type of weapons that were allowed to go from the United States to Mexico under the “Fast and Furious” operation. A 9-mm handgun or this .38-caliber. After that, the most shocking ones are this AR-15, which although its parts may come from overseas, according to U.S. laws, they must be assembled in the United States, and finally, a better-known one, a AK-47 or Kalishnikov like this one.

UNIVISION OBTAINED AN EXCLUSIVE LIST THAT SHOWS ALL THE WEAPONS THAT WERE ALLOWED TO GO FROM THE UNITED STATES TO MEXICO. IT IS A COMPLETE INVENTORY, JUST FROM THE PHOENIX, ARIZONA OFFICE OF THE ATF, AND IT SPECIFIES THE MODEL AND SERIAL NUMBER OF 1,882 FIREARMS, INCLUDING RIFLES, GUNS AND SEMIAUTOMATIC WEAPONS.

BUT THE LIST CONTAINS MORE INFORMATION. IT ALSO INCLUDES INFORMATION ON BUYERS AND SELLERS, DATE OF PURCHASE AND THE DAY THE WEAPON WAS ENTERED INTO THE SO-CALLED “SUSPICIOUS GUNS DATABASE” OR “SGD.”

SOON AFTER THE “FAST AND FURIOUS” OPERATION STARTED, THE WEAPONS STARTED TO FALL INTO THE HANDS OF CRIMINALS AND DRUG DEALERS IN MEXICO. )

( BUT WHAT HAS HAPPENED WITH EACH OF THE WEAPONS FOUND IS OF GREAT CONCERN …

THE LIST TAKES ANOTHER DIMENSION WHEN WE INVESTIGATE WHAT HAPPENED IN EACH SPECIFIC CASE.

FOR EXAMPLE, SOME OF THE WEAPONS IN THE “FAST AND FURIOUS” OPERATION FELL INTO THE HANDS OF THE GANG LED BY KINGPIN JULIO CÉSAR MAGAÑA HEREDIA, MEMBER OF ARELLANO FÉLIX’S CARTEL. AUTHORITIES CONFISCATED THE CACHE ON SEPTEMBER 10, 2010, IN TIJUANA, MEXICO. )

( SO FAR, IT HAS BEEN IMPOSSIBLE TO DETERMINE HOW MANY MEXICANS HAVE BEEN KILLED WITH THESE WEAPONS THAT THE UNITED STATES ALLOWED TO FALL INTO HANDS OF MEXICAN CRIMINALS AND DRUG DEALERS…

AND ALSO IN THE UNITED STATES, ALREADY THE OPERATION HAS HAD NEGATIVE REPERCUSSIONS.

AGENT DODSON REVEALED THAT THERE WAS A LINK BETWEEN “FAST AND FURIOUS” AND THE MURDER OF BORDER PATROL AGENT BRIAN TERRY IN RÍO RICO, ARIZONA ON DEC. 14, 2010. THAT WAS CONFIRMED BY AN INTERNAL ATF MEMORANDUM, ACCORDING TO WHICH JAIME AVILA, A RESIDENT OF PHOENIX, ARIZONA, ON JAN. 16, 2010 BOUGHT TWO ASSAULT RIFLES RECOVERED FROM THE CRIME SCENE.

ANOTHER CASE: ON THE DAY OF THE KILLING OF ACTIVIST MARISELA ESCOBEDO IN THE CITY OF CHIHUAHUA, AUTHORITIES RECOVERED A HANDGUN AS PART OF THE “FAST AND FURIOUS” OPERATION.)

( Jorge Ramos: “THE “FAST AND FURIOUS” OPERATION ORIGINATED IN PHOENIX AND WAS LED BY ATF SPECIAL AGENT BILL NEWELL, WHO LAST SEPTEMBER TOLD THE PRESS THAT THERE WERE SEVEN SPECIALIZED GROUPS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY DEVOTED TO KEEPING TABS ON ARMS TRAFFICKING, BUT HE DID NOT REVEAL, THAT IN FACT, IT WAS THE “FAST AND FURIOUS” PROGRAM. AT THE SAME TIME, HE BRAGGED ABOUT THE RESULTS OF THE OPERATIONS.)

( Jorge Ramos: “IOWA SENATOR CHARLES GRASSLEY AND CONGRESSMAN DARRELL ISSA OF CALIFORNIA HAVE REQUESTED DOCUMENTS AND INFORMATION FROM THE ATF, AND THEIR REQUESTS HAVE BEEN DENIED.”

Charles Grassley: “I can’t say the President or the Attorney General is misleading us, but this goes a lot higher that anybody is willing to admit.”

Jorge Ramos: “AQUÍ Y AHORA” REQUESTED INTERVIEWS WITH ATF AND ATTORNEY GENERAL REPRESENTATIVES. IN BOTH CASES, OUR REQUESTS WERE DENIED.

WHAT MANY ARE WONDERING NOW IS WHERE ARE THE HUNDREDS OF WEAPONS AT THIS TIME. AMERICAN AUTHORITIES HAVE LOST TRACK OF THEM.

THE OTHER QUESTION IS HOW MANY MEXICANS AND HOW MANY AMERICANS HAVE BEEN KILLED WITH THESE WEAPONS THAT THE UNITED STATES ALLOWED TO ENTER MEXICO UNDER THE “FAST AND FURIOUS” OPERATION.

John Dodson: “You have 1,800 guns that you let go. Imagine if you only had one bullet for each gun, or you get one death for each gun, that is 1,800 people.”

Jorge Ramos: “IT IS A CONCERN SHARED BY THE PARENTS OF AGENT JAIME ZAPATA IN BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS.”

Amador Zapata: “It feels bad that they’d send weapons over for your own people to get killed…I don’t think it’s right and it hurts us. Yes, it hurts us very much.” )
