If you want to know what happens when the Drug Cartels take over in the United States just ask the citizens of Humbolt County. during the growing season they dam up the creeks up in the hills and the resulting ponds are then filled with chemicals and fertilizers to feed the crops they are growing. The areas around the crops can be boobietrapped (sp) and the growers are armed to the teeth.

Where is our Coast Guard. These boats are now coming ashore in broad daylight?

As we approach an attempt at comprehensive immigration reform, I am convinced that nothing will change the mess we have now without border control first.

If we stop the drug cartels at the border, we hit them where it hurts–money and profits. Both the US and Mexico will be better off without powerful violent drug cartels roaming the land.

The only other way to rid both countries of these criminals is to legalize all drugs, and I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
