Politicians, law enforcement clash over true extent of violence spillover from Mexico

There are 4 comments on the www.themonitor.com story from Nov 17, 2011, titled Politicians, law enforcement clash over true extent of violence spillover from Mexico. In it, www.themonitor.com reports that:

A recent shooting that wounded an Hidalgo County sheriff’s deputy and killed a gunman allegedly working for the Gulf Cartel has reignited the debate on spillover violence from Mexico’s drug war.

While Mexico continues a bloody battle against cartels, a different clash is taking place in the U.S. — among law enforcement and politicians over the true extent of spillover violence.

One side, made up mainly of local law enforcement and U.S. federal agencies, claims that the violence mostly stops at the border. The other side claims the border region is being overrun by drug cartels.

I trust the LEO's over the word of a la raza supporting D- from Laredo, who is always whining about the treatment the plight of the illegals. for all we know, he is being supported by the cartels. These Dems will do anything to turn the spotlight away from the truth...

"According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, the number of homicides reported in Hidalgo County in 2010 was considerably less than in other major metropolitan areas of Texas.

In 2010, 36 homicides were reported throughout the county. That same year, Houston reported 269 homicides, Dallas reported 148, San Antonio reported 79, and Austin reported 38.". Enough to be said about it.

Are you that naive? The FBI reports what Holder, Napolitano and Obama want them to report.
