In its craven quest for power, the Democrat Party has cultivated a totally lawless, open-borders philosophy. Its mission is to encourage sufficient numbers of illegals to enter the country and then to ensure they are dependent on entitlement programs (and thus Democrat largess). Their cynical endgame: to encourage vote fraud in support of Democrat candidates, plain and simple.
Suffice it to say that no other country on Earth permits this sort of open immigration. Such a policy would encourage multiple languages, Balkanization, and -- eventually -- a Yugoslav-style war. Even in this country, you can't fly from Topeka to Dayton without the electronic equivalent of a colonoscopy and a background check. Yet Democrats have encouraged tens of millions to enter the country, making a mockery of our immigration laws and the legal immigration process.
The side-effects of the Democrats' policies are as depraved and troubling as you might expect. Phoenix AZ is reported to be the kidnapping capital of the world. The bankrupt state of California spends tens of billions on incarcerating and providing medical care to illegals.
And Mexican drug cartels are laced throughout Texas, training teens as contract-killers.
This group of mercenaries and narcos trained them to kill, and the two young boys started to work as hit men. They were paid ahead of time; they lived in safe houses in upper class neighborhoods of Laredo Texas, where those hard working successful citizens were clueless that the new family in the neighborhood were teen sicarios. The teens worked a five day work week, on call, ready for the order for them to kill on both sides of the border. They were paid up to $10,000 dollars and 2 kilos of cocaine for each job, and bonuses like a 70 thousand dollar Mercedes for a well executed job.
...In April of 2006, Cardona was arrested in Texas during an operation coordinated by Roberto Garcia, a detective from Laredo. The 19 year old teenager confessed to have participated in seven murders and involved Reta, among others. Reta fled to Mexico... Cardona also confessed to have kidnapped two American teenagers, members of a rival cartel. Erupting in laugher, his mocking description of their pleas was heard by the detective as he monitored the conversation. Despite their plea, he tortured them and stabbed them until killing them with a broken bottle. In the hacked phone conversation between Cardona and Reta, Cardona describes how he collected the blood of the dying bodies in a glass and toast to the Santa Muerte (Holy Death), the female deity of death. He placed the bodies in a barrel with 55 gallons of diesel, to preparing to cook them and set them on fire...
Lest we forget, in the words of our beloved baritone DHS secretary, Janet Napolitano, the border area is "safe as it's ever been".
