Spiraling drug-war violence in Mexico's wealthiest region has claimed the life of a prominent mayor — kidnapped Sunday and found dead Wednesday — and prompted demands from panicked residents for army protection.http://articles.latimes.com/2010/aug/19/world/la-fg-mexico-mayor-20100819
Edelmiro Cavazos was mayor of Santiago, a picturesque tourist town near Monterrey, Mexico's third-largest city and an industrial hub. He was grabbed from his gated home late Sunday by at least 15 gunmen wearing uniforms of a defunct police agency who arrived in a convoy of sport-utility vehicles, with patrol lights flashing.
Santiago and Monterrey are in the border state of Nuevo Leon. Both cities are a leisurely drive from U.S. territory.
I wonder what those opposed to sealing our border against incursion by undocumented workers will say when narco terrorists start slipping through.
Hopefully, by then, it won't be too late.
