Inching Toward A Borderless North America
October 20, 2010 by Bob Livingston
The Mexican invasion of Arizona is ongoing and the administration of President Barack Obama continues to allow it to happen.
Last week Pinal County (Arizona) Sheriff Paul Babeau confirmed he received an email in May from the Department of Homeland Security warning that 15 “sicarios” — assassins — had been sent by Mexican drug cartels in the Vekol Valley to kill bandits that had been hijacking their drug shipments. He discussed the email after local media outlets in Arizona obtained a copy of the email and began asking questions about it.
The Vekol Valley is located 70 miles inside Arizona and falls in Babeau’s Pinal County. The email warned that the invaders would be “very well equipped and armed sicarios complete with bullet proof vests.” The intelligence DHS had was so good it gave very detailed information about where and how the gunmen would operate.
But rather than send help in the form of National Guard troops or Federal law enforcement, DHS opted to put up a few signs warning travelers to avoid the area and left local enforcement to handle it as best they could.
On April 30, just two weeks prior to the DHS email, Pinal County Deputy Louie Puroll was wounded in a shootout with drug smugglers in the Vekol Valley. This incident highlights the danger local law enforcement faces in the area.
Mexican drug cartels are violent, ruthless and are operating with impunity on both sides of the border. And the Obama administration, like the George W. Bush administration before it, neglects the border issue in favor of inching us toward a North American Union — a country without borders that combines Mexico and Canada with the U.S.
