When you get there, keep your heads down, muchachos.

#2 Mexico's government is warning its citizens about travel to Arizona because of a tough new immigration law there

Avoiding the rule of law? Nothing new here for Mesicans. How about getting serious and BANNING travel to the US altogether?

#3 It's virtually identical to the Mexican immigration laws.

It's a felony to be in Mexico illegally, combine that with a Napoleonic legal system and you could say the even Arizona's law is fairly mild.

#4 How soon until Texas passes a similar law? Then it'll pretty much only be California, and they've got problems of their own.

#6 Illegals will avoid Arizona and go into New Mexico, Texas and California. We'll all watch the Arizona economy to find out the results.

Of course there is a chance the politicians and police just don't enforce the law in which case it'll all fade in a few weeks.

#7 From an intelligence community professional. I thought it was too good not to pass along.

We, as a county, have attempted to be kind to every country in the world. And generally, it turns around and bites us. Canada, Australia, New Zealand and England seem to be about the only exceptions. Other countries are allies, but still 'collect' on us, but we won't go there because it is expected. Now I'll get on my soap box for a minute, being as how I am in Arizona, and Phoenix was brought up. Mexico is not a friend to the US. Never has been and probably never will be.

In World War I, she sided with the Axis Powers. In World War II it sided with the Axis Powers. In the Cold War it had the largest concentration of Soviet Block espionage personnel outside of Eastern Europe. Just a few miles south of here is Lake Angus Dora. Build by the Soviets to 'provide electricity to northern Mexico'...naturally there was no power generating equipment ever installed, just a large Soviet presence just south of Fort Huachuca. Numerous examples of things like this, but I'm preaching to the choir, so I'll start to close.

I retired from the US Army counterintelligence), and then from the Department of Justice (Intelligence). I guess I worked on some 1,000 to
1,500 cases over all with DOJ. If I could wave a magic wand and say "no more south of the border illegals", that case load would have dropped by 80% to 90%.

The meth that is choking us, most of the precursors are from China. Sent to
Mexico on the cheap...remember the Chinese Generals saying the would use any
method! I'll get off my soap box now. Anyone who would like to continue this off
line, please feel free to contact me. I'm on the Global.

It's not a conspiracy. The old version of Sudafed (pseudoephedrine HCl) - which some entrepreneurs use to make meth - is available OTC without a prescription in China, as are amoxicillin, Cipro, and any number of antibiotics. Actually, not too long ago, the old Sudafed was available stateside without any limitations on purchase quantity. It was a matter of time before some enterprising individual figured out that (1) the raw materials for meth are available for 1/8 of the price in China and (2) they don't weigh much and don't take up a lot of space. It ain't rocket science, and it's a lot safer (from a legal liability standpoint) than trying to smuggle heroin or cocaine into the country.

Thank you for the addition, Frank. Geography is not one of my strengths.

#10 (1) the raw materials for meth are available for 1/8 of the price in China

The greedy fools who trust that the chemicals he purchased from China are exactly what the shipping label says, with no poisonous additions or substitutions, they've been killing downstream customers all over the world. However, I s'pose someone will argue that those who purchase meth instead of making their own deserve whatever happens to them. :-(
