21 Die in Gang Battle Near U.S. Border

Breaking News: The New York Times is reporting that "A massive gun battle between rival drug and migrant-trafficking gangs near the U.S. border left 21 people dead on Thursday . . . . The clash occurred . . . about 12 miles (20 kilometers) from the Arizona border -- a prime corridor for immigrant and drug smuggling.

Sonora's Attorney General's Office said in a statement that nine people were captured by police at the scene of the shooting, six of whom had been wounded in the confrontation. Authorities at the scene found seven rifles. . . .

In a city on another part of the U.S. border, gunmen killed an assistant attorney general for Chihuahua state and one of her bodyguards. After being chased by armed assailants through the darkened streets of Ciudad Juarez, the vehicle carrying Sandra Salas Garcia and two bodyguards was riddled with bullets Wednesday night. . . . the second bodyguard was seriously wounded. Salas was responsible for evaluating the work of prosecutors and special investigations units in Chihuahua.

Drug violence has killed more than 4,300 people in recent years in Ciudad Juarez, which borders El Paso, Texas. More than 23,000 people have been killed by drug violence since late 2006. . . .

Violent acts like the one that occurred yesterday, 12 miles from the U.S./Mexico border, are exactly why our federal government must act on securing our border before worrying about anything else

The Mexican Government is failing to deal with their own criminals who now are coming across the border to commit on American soil against the American people the very same crimes these criminals have perpetrated against Mexican citizens: drug trafficking, murder, rape, and theft.

It is time that we stand and demand that our federal government do its job to secure our border and to protect our fellow citizens. An unsecured border makes America unsafe!
