Seems pretty obvious to me…

The answer to this question, that is:

What if Mexico is compelled to accommodate organized crime and acquiesce to its demands? How do we protect our own nation? Our state? Our city? Our families?

An assault weapons ban and closing of the gun show loophole…

(and yes, that was sarcasm)

    Pardon my cynicism and apologies to all the honest folks in Mexico; but I don’t think there would be much difference between that and the current system where the criminals bribe and extort the officials into compliance.

    I mean what would change in border enforcement — would we sudden drop in the efforts to keep smugglers out of America?

    Not exactly, criminals may bribe and extort officials into compliance BUT officials extort citizens and bribe each other in “normal” sorts of business and civics too…Third World is the Third World wherever you go in it. Mexico had a shot at getting near First World status but never managed it. The country that machine gunned student protesters right before hosting the Olympics because Ordaz didn’t want to be embarrassed on the world stage by having student protesters? “Drug War” just makes it worse because it provides more fuel for corruption on both sides of the fence. In my opinion, the majority of the Mexican government are every bit as corrupt (and often less moral) as any drug dealer. God help you if you’re an American who crosses the border for some cultural exchange if you look like you have MONEY. RSA bribery and extortion is actually less obvious than Mexican police. On the other hand, if you get pulled over for speeding and hand the Mexican cop a 20 with your passport you only get a warning.

    FWIW, this is worth reading from a USMC veteran who’s ex-pat in Mexico. He’s been there a while now and he’s speaking as a guy who got shot in the face in VietNam and went back as a reporter on PURPOSE and then went to Cambodia to report on the khemer rouge take-over. Even he thinks Mexico is getting a bit interesting for his tastes.
