Border Town Residents Fear Cartel Retaliation For Reporting Criminal Illegal Alien Activity

Via WiscoDave, Iotwreport.com:

Americans in border towns in New Mexico are leery of reporting crimes and suspicious activities by illegal immigrants because they fear they will be retaliated against by drug cartels, according to a  Washington Examiner report.

Seven residents who live within 30 to 50 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border told the paper that calling local or federal law enforcement for help after discovering they have been victims of illegal immigrant crime could lead to “nasty consequences.”

One cattle rancher from Hidalgo County told the Examiner he calls in every crime, but not without punishment from the cartels.

“I turned in 700 pounds [of marijuana] up here … I called it in [to Border Patrol]. They went and got it. That night, they [smugglers] came back. They … broke off all the floats off my troughs — chopped ’em up, drained all of it,” he said.

Brave rancher.  But most people won’t be that brave, nor do they have the wherewithal to engage in battle with the cartel(s).

Here is the step-by-step process for the destruction of a country and culture.

[1] Corrupt enough powerful people with money and power – money for powerful corporations like Monsanto, or Archer Daniels Midland, who want immigrant workers, or even for smaller entities like local roofing and siding companies, and power for the democrats who want voters.

[2] Convince enough idiot voters that the immigrants just “come for love” and appeal to compassion.

[3] Underfund border security, and in any event, make it nearly impossible for them to perform their mission.

[4] Get enough lawyers involved that no one could ever successfully craft rules for the use of force or rules of engagement (RUF/ROE) for the border that would make the international community happy.

[5] Never, ever, send the military to the border under arming orders.  Let them do things like paperwork (and maybe string some wire) for looks and theater.

[6] Corrupt the churches so they teach that Jesus was a Bohemian, pacifist, flowerchild beatnik, and you will be too if you want to be a Christian.  No real Christian can be a warrior, at least not unless recognized by the state.

[7] Weaken the armed forces so that if they ever do deploy to the border, they won’t be fit to serve in any meaningful capacity anyway.

[8] Make sure that the police and judiciary are essentially one and the same, on the same side as it were, and make sure that the public is scared of ever taking any kind of action they deem illegal or vigilante.  Make the cost too high for them to bear to defend themselves or their property.

[9] Allow the criminal elements of the hordes to roam freely and perpetrate their desires at will.  This is advantageous for the controllers, as it keeps the fearful people in check and without recourse.  They cannot turn to each other, cannot turn to the state, and cannot turn to the criminals.  And they won’t act for themselves.

[10] Make the promise of provision of “free” health care for everyone who crosses the border, illegal or not.  This “free” health care hides the real cost of illegal immigration, but it’s advantageous to the corporations, so it must come to pass.

[11] Finally, invade the schools from elementary to college with socialists who do not believe in liberty, and this will ensure a vast supply of idiots as future voters, thus creating power in perpetuity.  These voters will never allow turning this death spiral around.

And thus you have a recipe for utter disaster for a nation.  It’s almost as if it were happening before our very eyes, yes?

    You are 100 percent correct. The immigration enforcement system was broken 35 years ago when I was involved in it. It has only gotten worse. The elites want it that way. The military actually takes agents away from enforcement because when they are out in the field agents must babysit them as they are unarmed as you point out.

    We used to joke that the only place democrats don’t want a police state is on the Border. I was naive back then. Now I know it is both parties.

    [12] Elect liberal women to high office so they can demand open borders because a wall is immoral and that it’s for the children; (all the while demanding the right to murder their own children in the womb and outside the womb.)

    Can’t call it a wall. Can call it a barrier. Doesn’t sound so mean to the female mind. Barrier…Wall…Barrier.

    Think I’ll go visit the ‘Great Barrier of China’….

    Don’t forget the meatpackers: Cargill, Smithfield, Tyson, and JBS/Swift, as a group probably the heaviest users of illegals outside of the ag. interests.

    ALCON,

    ALCON,

    I suggest restraint in blaming any one or group of fedgov politicians for the debacle on the southern border (in name only). Whether a “D”, “R”, “I” or whatever suffix they care to use as members of the UniParty….each and every one of the past & present 535, the nine blacked-robed justus’ and every POTUS since Woodrow Wilson are deserving of the charge of sedition ! The aforementioned, by either action or inaction to close the “doors” of this once-great nation, IMO, have or are conspiring with an enemy, the border attacking, foreign nationals. Thus, every one of these scoundrels are guilty of treason for making war with foreigners upon their own nation !

    Kiss Amerika goodbye !
