US residents need to help themselves. How? Dont travel to Juarez. If you do, you roll the dice. These people know that. Do they honestly believe that US law enforcement can intervene if they are kidnapped. If you are a US citizen and you are kidnapped in Mexico you can kiss your A double S good bye. Dont go to Mexico for nada. Period.

You know noone told these U.S. Citizens to live in Mexico. THey choose to because they want the cheap housing. That is their choice. They can always move back to El Paso but then they are going to have to pay taxes. THat is why they live in Mexico. So quit complaining or move.

If they live in Juarez, they are not US residents. They might be tax evaders, living in Juarez to avoid paying extremely high property taxes on the USA side but that's their problem, they love money too much.

Not only do they get out of paying property taxes and vehicle registration taxes and insurance costs, they have all the benefits by using our hospitals free of cost, enrolling their children in our schools and working in the USA.

Now they're wanting more?

What? LOL No, they made the choice to live and work there and they need to deal with the consequences/danger themselves. Hire some guards. I am pretty sure some ex-Israeli soldier needs to be employed.

You Mexicans really need to grow some gonads and build some pride: in the process you might actually earn some respect. Youíre big boys and girls now and itís long past time that you weaned yourself off of Americaís teat.

Mexico is a beautiful land full of natural resources and yet youíve squandered it away and then run to the USofA to do the same.

For goodness sake, do you really want your legacy to be known as nothing more than lying thieving breeding parasites that destroy everything they touch? Thatís not a people, thatís a disease that must be eradicated.

Gerardo Rodríguez, editor of El Diario de El Paso and also affiliated with La Red, pressed Reyes for better treatment of border-crossers on the part of U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.

What about border crossers who think we should kiss their ***? Border crossers need to be polite also. Complain, complain. Yet, they drive up to the inspection booth unprepared, eating, talking on their cell phones. That is RUDE!

The U.S. has a certain amount of obligation to it's citizens traveling/working abroad.
That said, if a person has "duel citizenship" then they are truely not an American. As mentioned earlier on, they are taking advantage of the situation and taking the good and good from both countries and asking the U.S. to assist them w/the bad in both countries.
Get a life will you people!
If there is a problem in Mexico go to its government for help and vice versa.
Reyes should be telling these people the same thing, but he will not take a firm stand because he is afraid he may loose votes because of it.
La Red should move its hq to mexico if it truely wants to help these people and make a diffrence. But I do not believe that they have the cah1s to do that because they apparently have none!

If you're American don't live or go to Mexico.
If you're Mexican than stay and fight for your country. Of course it's a crappy country because nobody wants to stay and fight. When they're not surrendering to America, they're fleeing across the border to America. Bunch of p**sies. It's your country, arm yourself some how and fight back!

Yes they want more and they have a lot of politicians that cater to them, including Obama.
We need to get rid of all the politicians that cater to illegal immigrants. This politicians are the ones that need to be voted out of office. Vote and vote wisely your future depends on it.

Yes, and they still drive with Chih plates and are not registering their cars and they want protection? Reyes, you have more important things to do besides helping another country. Are they going to come over here and protect us?
