Hmmmmm??? Kinda wonder which one of his home boy bros he might wind up sharing a cell with and why? His brother, Angelo or the council member? Are the feds allowed to wire tap a jail cell????

I can't condemn the mayor because his brothers are drug runners. But I would not vote for him, either. Just to be safe.
Good work, Border Patrol.

Allright, then condemn the mayor for being a gun runner. His brother's drug running has nothing to do with the gun running at this point - 2 separate situations.

OLD REPORTS: 2009

Subject: Deep Pol article 4-10-09; published on forum in April 2009

ATF and Homeland Security were notified about gun running and drug smuggling in the region in April of 2009.

Mexican ranch Guns and Drugs shipping point (Columbus NM Palomas MX)
note: 02- 13-2009 information soon to be released by the Mexican Army: 2-5-09sip

(... I doubt the US media will cover any of this, or the real war down here because of relations with Mexico over the NFTA modification agreements which are on going negotiation in Washington DC, at this point in time.

The Mexican American border drug wars at this point is not a subject American politicians wants to hear comming from the media or to be talked about openly. This 'Border War', along south central New Mexico has become political in nature, but Mexicans as well as Americans on both sides of this border community continue to be kidnapped, shot, and killed almost on a daily bases. It appears the mainstream media has been asked, by the powers that be, "not to cover these events, because it may cause panic along the border and in some border towns could xxxx"...)

The photos were taken while traveling with the Mexican Army inside Mexico, last week.

(one) Mexican Ranch used for gun shipments and gravesite for Juarez missing and murdered, located one half mile south of new border fence and approx 35 miles east of Palomas Mexico and approx 40 miles west of Juarez Mexico. A very dangerous place and remote drug crossover point. Also reports of graves on both sides of the border near Palomas Mexico.

Referenced: US Border Patrol and the American Mexican joint military Task Force Team; HQ El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico... joint venture....(photos taken by Tosh Plumlee 4-06-09)

(two) Three people were murdered by drug and gun runners inside this old shot up car, about seven years ago, while escaping the ranch and trying to get back across the US border. The ranch is about one mile south of this location from the ranch..the cross members in the forground of ranch picture is the new four foot high border fence.(ref; US Border Patrol info)

The Mexican Army is currently south and east of the ranch about eight miles looking for more burried bodies connected to this ranch as well as others closer to Juarez.(ref; Col Sancheze Luna Carransas Mexican Army and Wm Tosh Plumlee TDY; AMTFT-7; Operation 'Firestop', BASE OPS)

note: In reference to new border fence (pic #5) Its like this for 80miles (Columbus NM to EL Paso Texas) US 4 feet high at a cost for construction approx 1 million dollars per mile..for new road and fence installation. The old barbwire fence can still be seen behind new fence.

He puts away that Crown Royal like there's no tomorrow and stuffs his ugly face constantly. This guy doesn't have long to live....on the inside or out of jail. He's rolling on too many people who will have to shut him up. HOPEFULLY.
