  • You know, there are plenty of place in Mexico where the drug lords don't rule. In fact Americans vacation there all the time. They are not refugees of a drug war. Period

  • "Refugee law is the branch of international law which deals with the rights and protection of refugees. It is related to, but distinct from, international human rights law and international humanitarian law, which deal respectively with human rights in general, and the conduct of war in particular."

    I've already given you the actual definition of refugee several times. There is how that definition is applied. The U.S. alone doesn't get to make that call.

    Now look at these figures; and tell me how you think it's even close to correct to compare those in Mexico; with these actual refugees:
    As of December 31, 2005, the largest source countries of refugees are Afghanistan, Iraq, Myanmar, Sudan, and the Palestinian Territories. The country with the largest number of IDPs is Sudan, with over 5 million. As of 2006, with 800,000 refugees and IDPs, Azerbaijan had the highest per capita IDP population in the world.

  • Mexican Drug War: 10 Shocking Facts:

    1. A recent U.S. government report suggests that "Two large and important states bear consideration for a rapid and sudden collapse: Pakistan and Mexico."

    2. Mexico has one of the highest kidnapping rates in the world: An average of 70 people are abducted each month.
    (they are taking the children and selling their organs!)

    3. More than 1,100 guns found discarded at Mexico shooting scenes or confiscated from cartel gangsters were traced to Texas gun merchants in 2007
    (american merchants are selling them weapon, that is not helping the cause it is adding to the problem)

    4. One of Mexico's most notorious drug kingpins, Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman, escaped a maximum security prison in 2001 by driving out in a laundry truck.
    (dangerous drug lord on the loose)

  • I'd also like to know why you seem to only care about Mexican immigrants. What about all the other countries in this world that have horrific things happening in them? Should those people also be allowed to just flood over our borders at will? No accounting for any of them? So when there's a natural disaster and not even close to enough emergency supplies people can scream about how evil the government is leaving them to die; when in fact no one even was aware the people were there to begin with...and that's just one scenario...there are so many ways that being here illegally negatively impacts not only legal citizens; legal immigrants; but those here illegally too.

  • 5. This year Forbes magazine included Joaquin Guzman, a Mexican drug lord, on its annual billionaires' list.
    (he has control money and power)

    6. A drug cartel hood named "The Cook" reportedly dissolved the bodies of 300 victims in acid as part of the grisly work he committed for crime bosses.
    (would you want to live in a place where this could be you your children or family??)

    7. The FBI has reported 75 open cases of Americans kidnapped in Mexico.
    ( o wait it very well could have been)

    8. In a poll by the daily newspaper La Reforma, Mexico City residents ranked public insecurity as a worse crisis than the economy by a 5-to-1 margin. In the past year, 20 percent were crime victims.
    (this right here says it all, they are thretened, and this makes them refugees!)

    9. In the past year, Mexico's civil drug war has claimed some 6,300 lives.
    (those poor people)

  • 10. Grammy-nominated singer Sergio Gomez was kidnapped and his genitals were burned with a blowtorch in December 2007, presumably for singing narco corridos, or "drug ballads."

    (if this is how they treat their rich and famous starts, how do you think they treat the average mexican citizen?)

  • Saturday: a shoot-out between rival cartels in the north-western state of Sinaloa leaves nine dead, including six peasant farmers caught in the crossfire.

    Sunday: gunmen burst into a wedding in a small rural town in the southern state of Guerrero, killing five.

    Monday: hitmen target two people driving in Ciudad Juárez. The scene recalls the murder of three people linked to the US consulate 10 days earlier.

    Tuesday: newspapers publish a photograph of an alleged drug dealer being arrested by marines next to pictures of a body dressed in the same clothes, which was found dumped on Monday.
