Three members of the Mexican Army invaded an Arizona neighborhood and conducted a home invasion and assassination. Gunfire occurred throughout the neighborhood. One person was dead. Yes, you did read that right.
Mexican soldiers came into Arizona and went in a house and assassinated someone.
On top of that one soldier captured said that if theings went wrong they were prepared to ambush and assault police.
The violence along our border is escalating and our government is shrugging its shoulders pretending that it is not occurring in order to keep "trade relations" good or in order to benefit monetarily in their campaigns. The last thing on their mind is the American citizens and if you don't believe that then you haven't been paying attention for the past decade+.
Behind every injustice you can almost always just follow the money. In this case the money can be found on both sides of the border - in the hands of drug cartels in Mexico and corrupt politicians in the United States - who will simply do anything to remain in power.
I bet you didn't hear about this on the nightly news.
In one of the most disturbing Mexican government incursions into the U.S., three members of Mexico’s army conducted a home invasion and assassination operation in Arizona this week that killed one person and littered a neighborhood with gunfire.
Phoenix police say the Mexican military officers were hired by one of that country’s renowned drug cartels to carry out the deadly operation. The three invaders were dressed in military tactical gear and were armed with AR-15 assault rifles. They clearly had military training and the one Mexican soldier who was captured said the gang was completely prepared to ambush Phoenix police.
Official police memorandums ... reports provide details of the “drug rip,” which officials describe as a tactical assault in which approximately 100 rounds were fired. Windows were raked and doors were breached as the heavily armed Mexican soldiers entered the residence clad in body armor, black combat boots, ballistic helmets and thigh holsters.
Is this really the America we want where we allow a foreign military to come into our country prepared to "ambush police" if their operations to assassinate someone go wrong?
Outrageous to the extreme. Stop sitting around and get active! Start making your voice heard to someone other than your wall or TV!

I am so numb. A headline could read, "Mexico congress declares war on Maricopa county." Nothing surprises me anymore.
If I had a penny for each time I've heard, "This is a small problem, what do you have against Mexicans?," I'd have over ten dollars (and I don't hate Mexicans who live in their home country or have become citizens of this country).
