Mexican TCO Members Quietly Living Among Us

There are 8 comments on the www.hstoday.us story from Nov 8, 2011, titled Mexican TCO Members Quietly Living Among Us. In it, www.hstoday.us reports that:

Brownsville, Texas is what most people would call a working-class town. It has an industrial feel and there are areas of the community that have seen better days. One of the city’s mainstays is its large port and its connection via three international bridges to Matamoros in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas. Driving around town, you find plenty of taquerias along with typical chain restaurants, warehouses, car dealerships, schools and other places typical for a south Texas town or Gulf Coast port city.

But there is something else that makes Brownsville - as well as the neighboring cities of Harlingen and McAllen - different from the average, small port community. And that is it is located a few hundred yards from the US-Mexico border and one of the most violent areas in Mexico.

I think they should move into the high priced neighborhoods of politicians and ceo's , since they are all crooks.

That's right if they had to put up with the chit we have to out of these illegals maybe they'd change their minds on this matter and start doing something about it!!

They have to keep as low a profile as possible in order to avoid being caught. Don't tell me you expect them all to be wearing red tshirts saying "I'M A DRUG DEALER, ARREST ME" on them, do you.

That's why it's also unlikely that we'll see anywhere near the cartel violence on this side of the border that we see in Juarez. The cartel leaders aren't dumb enough to allow that to happen because, if it did, they'd have the Mexican military and the US military on them.

If I wanted illegal drugs, all I have to do is goto the guy who says, I'M A DRUG DEALER on the street.

It's no joke.

I have no doubt that, if I went into West Oakland from Alameda, I wouldn't have any problem finding illicit drugs. Anything I asked for would be available. It's the lowest level dealers who are highly visible. The higher level importers and distributors of drugs in quantity keep a much lower profile.

As the laws of the land are today, it could only be the National Guard if federalized an/or the Coast Guard. Don't kid yourself, when they decide to bring their violence over here, they will. If we get a real president and Secretary of Homeland Security and a Attorney General who supports states and citizens, then they may not bring it over. I don't think you like within 50 miles of the border or along any of the smuggling corridors. Those that do are loaded for bear and have worked out mutual fire support lanes with neighbors. This cartel business is a serious threat.
