Get together with hammers in your hands and protect our borders AND our Border Patrols officers from the illegals, cartel and murderers coming over to El Paso.
I am @%$# tired of seeing Mexican plates in our public schools and in our neighborhoods. Those violators are getting away from paying taxes while we have to insure, inspect, and register our vehicles while the wetbacks get away with it.

Commendable but it's not going to do anything to stop the violence. As long as they (cartels) have free reign to act as they wish in a city where local and federal police can't solve or prevent any crimes then it'll continue.

Alcohol is LEGAL
Tobacco is LEGAL.

Do the Cartels or street gangs sell these legal commodities?

NO.
WHY?

Black market drug dealers cannot compete with legally controlled and regulated marketplaces.
If drug were legalized, the cartels would no longer exist. The Alcohol cartels of Al Capone were finished once Alcohol Prohibition was repealed.

During Prohibition, people went from drinking beer and wine to drinking gin and whiskey. Boot leggers were only interested in the more potent and concentrated substances because they incurred less risk and generated more profits.

The same is happening with today's drug dealers. Why would a drug dealer sell Coca leaves when they can sell a more powerfully concentrated product like cocaine that is also more profitable.

CRACK and METH were invented by drug dealers looking for ways to expand their profits with less product. We can thank the black market premium created by prohibition laws for these dangerous drugs.

Legalization will undermine the profits of the drug dealer and they will eventually disband. Remember, the profits from a black market is what allows them to earn billions. This money is used to buy weapons, pay hit men, corrupt public officials, and wage country destabilizing wars.

Drug addicts need to be helped, not arrested and treated like animals.

End drug prohibition, build more rehab centers and shut down the unconstitutional DEA…

You start off by saying violence in Juarez doesn't affect El Paso and then have complaints that result from the violence in Juarez. I like the way you argue!

Please don't take this in a rude way, but..... how many of these high school seniors are here legally? From what I know of Canutillo, only about 1% of the students actually make it to college, from that percentage only about another 10% actually make it through college. A bunch of these students will end up being deadbeats, heck, I bet that over 50% of them are already moms and dads, living off my taxes. nufd said.....
Just what I was thinking

good point.. we don't need people driving under the influence. But what evidence do you have to say that driving under the influence of illegal drugs has caused any significant number of crashes. With 52 percent of Americans having admitted to using an illegal drug its evident they're driving under the influence of drugs. Ever heard of a coke user or stoned driver killing anyone?

Not likely.. It's just the nature of alcohol. Even if drugs were legalized.. there would still be laws against driving under the influence.

You must understand that keeping drugs illegal makes it impossible for addicts to get help.

You must understand that keeping drugs illegal makes drug dealers rich. They have the means to buy guns, hire hit men, and wreak havoc on our streets. That's a greater hazard to all communities.

KEEping drugs illegal means drug dealers have complete control of drugs. That means on quality control. Prohibition is the reason drug dealers introduced previously unknown drugs before the drug war was started. Crack and meth were invented by illegal dealers under drug prohibition.

End the drug war...

nice gesture but unfortunately these criminals will don't care who or how many times people protest, all they care about is themselves and getting rich and powerful.. stupid criminals need to straightened out their lives before it's too late!

I understand where you are coming from , but the blame should not be on these people from Mexico. They are doing what most people would do; the blame is on our politicians who allow this to happen by playing politics and not enforcing our immigration laws. Our polititicans are allowing this to happen and they have the power to stop it, so who is at fault?
