    CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) — President Felipe Calderon on Thursday unveiled a “No More Weapons!” billboard made with crushed firearms and placed near the U.S. border. He urged the United States to stop the flow of weapons into Mexico.

    The billboard, which is in English and weighs 3 tons, was placed near an international bridge in Ciudad Juarez and can be seen from the United States.

    Calderon said the billboard’s letters were made with weapons seized by local, state and federal authorities.

    “Dear friends of the United States, Mexico needs your help to stop this terrible violence that we’re suffering,” Calderon said in English during the unveiling ceremony.

    “The best way to do this is to stop the flow of automatic weapons into Mexico,” he added.

    Before unveiling the billboard, Calderon supervised the destruction of more than 7,500 automatic rifles and handguns at a military base in Ciudad Juarez.

    Calderon said more than 140,000 weapons have been seized since December 2006, when he launched a crackdown against drug traffickers. More than 47,500 people have been killed since then.

    One of the cities most affected by the violence is Ciudad Juarez, where more than 9,000 have died in drug violence since 2008.

    Also Thursday, the country’s Attorney General said a federal prosecutor assigned to a northern state has been detained on suspicion of protecting the brutal Zetas drug cartel.

    Attorney General Marisela Morales said federal prosecutor Claudia Gonzalez has been sent to prison. She didn’t say when Gonzalez was detained or give any other details.

    Gonzalez was based in the city of Saltillo, capital of the border state of Coahuila.

    The state on the border with Texas has seen a spike of violence as the Zetas and the Sinaloa drug cartel fight for control of drug smuggling routes into the United States.

    It should have been bi lingual. The Mexican cartels are the people responsible for smuggling guns to Mexico based on their wants.

    We should have a sign on our side that says "No More Drugs and Illegal "Migrants" in Mestizo and it should be 1969 miles wide.

    We should stop the flow of illegal weapons into Mexico BY SECURING THE DAMN BORDER! Best thing we could do for Mexico would be to stop guns from going south and stop drugs and illegal aliens from coming north. That would end a lot of the violence in their nation and ours.

    I was wondering the same thing. You know no matter what our billboard would be considered racists. I think the DHS should have a national competition for billboards to be placed along our borders.
