    There are at least 2 sides to every story and this guy gives us a view of the immigration issue from someone who lives inside an area near the border.

    There are real threats down there near Fort Huachuca. High Speed Chases. Living on edge as choppers shine the search light in your back yard.

    This guy gives people an idea of what it is really like, and why Arizona passed the recent laws to enforce the identification and expulsion of ILLEGAL immigrants.


    I have no problem with Mexicans. I like speaking Spanish and I appreciate parts of the culture, but being here illegally should be dealt with. The drug traffic is outrageous...and lining somebody's pockets....someone I surely do not know.

    There is a problem when illegals are running for the hills over my property after the new law is passed. Rightly so...they should run because they are scared of getting caught.

    Those who are not breaking the law have no fear of the enforcement of law or it's penalties. I say enforce the law and encourage legal immigration, no matter how long the waiting list. It is what it is.

    Subject: FW: Mexican Assassins - Life on the border

    Forwarded to me by a friend who recently retired from border patrol........

    As you know, one of the local ranchers was murdered in Douglas two weeks ago. His funeral is tomorrow. I received three messages similar to the one below from different officers within the Rangers and law enforcement.
    Yesterday afternoon I talked to another rancher near us who is a friend of ours and whose great grandfather started their ranch here in 1880. These are good people. He told me what really happened out at the Krentz ranch and what you won’t read in the papers. The Border Patrol is afraid of starting a small war between civilians here and the drug cartels in Mexico .

    Bob Krentz was checking his water like he does every evening and came upon an illegal who was lying on the ground telling him he was sick. Bob called the Border Patrol and asked for a medical helicopter evac. As he turned to go back to his ATV he was shot in the side. The round came from down and angled up so they know the shooter was on the ground. Bob’s firearm was in the ATV so he had no chance. Wounded he called the Cochise County Sherriff and asked for help. Bleeding in the lungs he called his brother but the line was bad so he called his wife but again the line was bad.

    Several ranchers heard the radio call and drove to his location. Bob was dead by this time. The ranchers tracked the shooter 8 miles back towards Mexico and cornered him in a brushy draw. This was all at night. The Sherriff and Border Patrol arrived and told them not to go down and engage the murderer. They went around to the back side and if you can believe it the assassin managed to get by a BP helicopter and a Sherriff’s posse and back to Mexico . So much for professional help when you need it.

    One week before the murder Bob and his brother Phil (who I shoot with) hauled a huge quantity of drugs off the ranch that they found in trucks. One week before that a rancher near Naco did the same thing. Two nights later gangs broke into his ranch house and beat him and his wife and told them that if they touched any drugs they found they would come back and kill them. The ranchers here deal with cut fences and haul drug deliveries off their ranches all the time. What ranchers think is that the drug cartels beat the one rancher and shot Bob because they wanted to send a message. Bob always gave food and water to illegals and so they think they sent the assassin to pose as an illegal who was hungry and thirsty knowing it would catch Bob off guard.

    What is going on down here is NOT being reported. You need to tell people how bad it is along the border. Texas is worse. Near El Paso it’s in a state of war. 5000 people were killed in Ciudad Juarez last year and it’s over 2000 so far this year. Gun sales down here are through the roof and I get emails from people wanting firearms training.
    Something has to be done but I don’t hold out much hope. These gangs have groups in almost every city in the US
    . This is serious business. The Barrio Azteca and their sub gangs are like Mexican Corporations and organized extremely well. If this doesn’t get dealt with down here you guys will deal with it on your streets.

    The US Government refuses to acknowledge and deal with the fact we have been INVADED by an armed and dangerous Criminal Army. We are AT WAR - but the PTB don't want to 'alarm people'. CRAP!! We NEED to be alarmed - and we need to be fighting these invaders and driving them back across the border. We are losing our southwestern states, while the Administration fiddles....... [rnt]
