    It is amazing to me how much illegal activities are tolerated on the American side of the border by local government officials.

    They would rather profit from cheap illegal labor, or let it slide rather than rock the boat for those who do.

    I am amazed: Someone on the South Padre island forum actually said that the illegals were just people that "we invited here."

    I responded that I did not invite them and I wish he would stop inviting them.

    Vigil Held for Slain UTB Student
    Yesterday | Source: KRGV | See Full Story

    A candlelight vigil on at the UTB campus had a message about violence tonight. Jonathon Torres was somebody's son and somebody's friend.




    Cartel gunmen hijacked the bus he was on in Matamoros, and opened fire on the passengers killing Jonathon Torres.

    Drug violence kills dozens in Matamoros this week
    MATAMOROS — Sporadic shooting that began Monday night has killed 25 or more Mexican drug cartel operatives and temporarily forced the closure of two international bridges, according to law enforcement officials south of the border.

    The violence continued sporadically Tuesday between the Mexican military and groups of gunmen from both the warring Gulf Cartel and the Zetas, said a Mexican law enforcement official who asked that his name not be used for security reasons.

    It remained unclear Tuesday afternoon whether a citywide festival to celebrate Mexican Independence would continue as planned today.

    SPORADIC SHOOTING

    Shootouts were reported in various areas in Matamoros, with gunmen at times spraying the streets with bullets and throwing grenades.

    Traffic was halted at both the Gateway and B&M international bridges sometime after midnight Monday at the request of the Mexican government, U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Eddie Perez said. The closures lasted about 20 minutes and were described as a precautionary measure.

    "As always, CBP’s top priority is the safety of the traveling public and our officers," he said. "CBP is in constant communication with our partners in Mexico, and we continue to monitor any and all situations."

    BATTLING FOR DOMINANCE

    This week’s fighting appears to have begun in Ciudad Victoria, the state capital of Tamaulipas, and spread north from there, Mexican law enforcement officials said.

    Witnesses have reported sporadic shootouts throughout that city. They also said they had seen banners warning that on Thursday, gunmen will be going after the governor, Eugenio Hernandez Flores.

    The nation’s drug cartels have adopted the use of banners to spread messages critical of the government and each other in cities across Mexico.

    This latest flare-up comes amid an ongoing dispute between the Gulf Cartel and its former hired assassins, the Zetas. The latter group recently split from their former bosses to become a powerful narcotics syndicate in its own right. The two cartels are now battling for dominance of the lucrative northeastern Mexico smuggling corridor.

    BROWNSVILLE PREPARED

    Brownsville police spokesman Eddie Garcia said his department continues to monitor developments in Mexico and is prepared to implement emergency plans if necessary.

    Because the gunfire could be heard here, police officials at the University of Texas-Brownsville/Texas Southmost College say they warned students living in campus dormitories to stay in their rooms.

    UTB/TSC police spokesman Lt. Armando Pulido said his department had received an advisory Monday night from federal law enforcement officials about a possible incident across the border.

    "We have an emergency plan in place, in the event of an immediate threat to our students, faculty and staff," Pulido said Tuesday. "Last night we took steps to communicate that threat to them."

    Oscar Olvera, a student at UTB/TSC, said the shooting came too close for comfort this time. He and his girlfriend sought cover when they realized they really were hearing gunfire.

    "I was taking my girlfriend to La Estancia apartments and she asked if I heard it,

    The story of South Padre Island's economic demise is the microcosm of America's economical collapse:

    And it is rooted in the deterioration and destabilization of Our Cointry's foundation: The Working Class.




    http://southpadreisland.tv/forum/index.php?topic=95.210


    Our struggle on the Island is America's struggle, as we slide into a two class society, with the upper class hiring illegal labor to sell outsource manufactured trinkets to visiting upper class--the problem is this economical cycle is not sustainable;

    There simply is not a never ending supply of wealthy visitors: Their numbers are shrinking.

    Those that own the most are the most able to circumvent the laws and will hire illegals.

    What amazes me is 60% in our local online poll for the South Padre Island forum voted that all labor laws should be enforced on the Island, including the use of illegal labor, yet the opposition screams "racism;"

    Only because they are most likely benefiting from cheaper illegal immigrant labor.

    Witchita, the bad guys are on this side of the border, and they are letting the bad guys up from that side of the border, and the bad guys on this of the border sometimes wear badges.
