What are the numbers suggesting?
In America, how safe are we? And for how long? Mexican cartel driving in Phoenix with Barrett .50 cal passed an Arizona State Trooper.
Border Patrol agents have come under fire several times in recent weeks from shooters in Mexico, a development taken as a sign that cartels are becoming increasingly reckless and desperate to smuggle people and drugs into the United States.
Agents working in the mountains south of San Diego, California, were shot at on Aug. 9 after taking a group of illegal immigrants into custody near Otay Mountain. Then, early Monday, agents were shot at in a second incident while attempting to make repairs on a damaged spot in the border wall. The gunshots were from about 60 feet away. No one was taken into custody in either incident, according to Border Patrol’s parent agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
An agent based in El Paso was shot at 20 times while he was on patrol at 3 a.m. on Aug. 6.
Camera footage revealed two people shooting with high-caliber rifles
across the Rio Grande, which divides both countries. The two suspects fled the scene after, and the agent was uninjured. Three days later, another agent in El Paso was in his vehicle when shooters opened fire five times at his vehicle after midnight. Neither agent was injured. In all the incidents, the shooters were thought to be in Mexico. Because law enforcement agents were targeted, the FBI is investigating.
In the last two years, Phoenix Police received nearly 1,000 kidnapping-for-ransom reports and authorities estimate that twice as many went unreported. Kidnappings are so rampant that the department had to create a special unit to handle the once unheard of crimes.
Phoenix is a notorious illegal immigrant haven that has long offered undocumented aliens official sanctuary. In fact, the city’s business district (36th & Thomas) is rife with illegal aliens soliciting, trespassing, loitering and violating public health ordinances.
The Phoenix Police Department largely ignores the crisis because the city’s sanctuary policy forbids officers from asking about a suspect’s immigration status,
though the mayor (Phil Gordon) supposedly reversed it a few months ago under pressure from Judicial Watch.
Mayor Gordon has long been a supporter of illegal immigration and last year he ordered the FBI to investigate a local sheriff—Maricopa County’s Joe Arpaio—for violating the civil rights of illegal aliens during arrests. Many of the apprehensions, supported by merchants, helped clean up the city’s business district.
Yet in a letter to the Justice Department, Gordon demanded an investigation into “discriminatory harassment” and “improper” stops, searches and arrests by Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies who patrol the metropolitan area. He also accused deputies of infringing on all residents’ civil rights and putting their well-being at risk.
“Most Americans do not realize how blatantly the cartels are utilizing social media platforms to recruit young Americans to participate in dangerous drug and human smuggling,”
Sheriff Lamb said in a May 11 statement emailed to Phoenix New Times.
The migrant smuggling economy at the U.S.-Mexico border now tops $20 billion and the cartels have made at least $2.6 billion in profit over the past 12 months just from controlling the routes illegal immigrants use, according to a Washington Times analysis.
