This is why we need to secure our borders. It seems like we welcome all foreign criminals into our backyard. We already have enough thugs running around in our city, we don't need more thugs from other countries!

See bangers of chicago. The mob is professional. Person injured, NOT KILLED. Please clean up your act. Times are hard on everyone, so the least you could do is let them live.

Ah, Hello? They have cut the man's vein and artery! I may not be a doctor, but that is one way to slowly kill someone! There is no excuse whatsoever! And yes, they are Professional killers!

Militarization of the southern border is the only answer to stop these types of thugs including the illegals from coming into our country but it won't happen because our spineless politicians would rather not upset our southern neighbor instead of protecting its citizens, PATHETIC!

I'll bet that it was because of our broken immigration laws that these gang-bangers had to conduct this robbery and assualt. Chances are these guys are resting in a LaRaza safe house or seeking sancuary in a Catholic church right now.

Better yet they should go to San Fran and get the city to pay for a plane ride home. Pretty sweet...free travel home and 1.5 million to spend in Columbia. What a country!

These gangs use bad ID to fly in and out of the country and prey on jewelry salesmen. They are not " across the border" immegrants, come to pick produce.

The FBI has a squad set up just to stop this type of theft... and yes, these are organized criminal gangs more like the Mafia, than the Latin Kings
