  1. It's unfortunate that people have to live in fear. What's even worst is that the cartels way over power the government. The cartels also have more people in them than the government has soldiers.

  6. It’s quite simple. There are a lot of poor people in Mexico and there is a lot of junkies in the USA. Drugs flow cause the need for income is high south, and the demand for narcotics is insane in the north. it’s a fu”kin” mental asylum.

  7. To all Latino people living here in the US, learn from the people of Mexico and other fail states. Do not give up your 2nd Amendment Rights. Do not vote to eliminate guns in this country. No hagan caso al Democrata. Son mentirosos. Mis vis abuelos son de Zacatecas, Zac.
