DHS Sec. Michael Chertoff:
"we are beginning to see more violence in some border communities and against our Border Patrol agents as these traffickers ... seek to protect their turf."And then:
The Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center and the High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Investigative Support Center also predicted further spillage of drug-gang violence deep into the United States.And last:
In April, the Justice Department reported that Mexican drug cartels represent the "largest threat to both citizens and law enforcement agencies in this country and now have gang members in nearly 200 U.S. cities." The 200 cities include Washington; Baltimore, Frederick and Greenbelt in Maryland; and Arlington and Galax in Virginia.Oh, good times for us. Nothing garnishes a global economic crisis like an infiltration of domestic narco-urban-guerrillas. Let's stretch the abilities of municipal and state law enforcement right to the edge of their abilities, shall we? Thank you War on Drugs. You are, clearly, the gift that keeps on giving.
