Mexican Drug Violence Has Crossed U.S. Border, State Officials Say


The violence associated with Mexican drug cartels is now spilling over onto the America side of the border in Arizona and Texas, state officials have admitted.

The New York Times reports that Arizona has seen a dramatic spike in drug-related abductions, home invasions, and even men dressed in SWAT gear wielding military-grade weaponry.

A home invasion here last year was carried out by attackers wielding military-style rifles and dressed in uniforms similar to a Phoenix police tactical unit. The discovery of grenades and other military-style weaponry bound for Mexico is becoming more routine, as is hostage-taking and kidnapping for ransom, law enforcement officials said.

The Phoenix police regularly receive reports involving a border-related kidnapping or hostage-taking in a home.

The Maricopa County attorney’s office said such cases rose to 241 last year from 48 in 2004, though investigators are not sure of the true number because they believe many crimes go unreported.

The violence, said Commander Dan Allen of the State Department of Public Safety, is “reaching into Arizona, and that is what is really alarming local and state law enforcement.”

In Texas, state Homeland Security Director Steve McCraw told the El Paso Times that drug violence has indeed crossed the border.

“Yes, absolutely it has occurred; there’s no question about it,” he said.

The violence has led Governor Rick Perry to request an additional $135 million for border security from the state legislature.

This admission comes after news that Texas activated the lowest stage of its border security plan after protests and violence broke out in Mexican border towns last week and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the former governor of Arizona, told reporters last Thursday that drug-related violence has not crossed the Mexican-American border.

“Right now it has not (crossed the border). But it is a contingency we have in mind because it could,” she said. “We have contingency plans should violence spread into the United States.”

  1. We use drones to target terrorists overseas..why aren’t we using drones here to wipe out these Mexican drug lords..they are worse than terrorists..they are corrupting the minds and bodies of young Americans..I’m sure US intelligence knows where they are..after one or two are wiped off the face of the earth they’ll get the message..

    • Pete-
      Thanks for stopping by and I couldn’t agree with you more.. We should stop this issue before it continues to escalate.
      But this administration wouldn’t have to guts to make such a move..

      God Bless,

  2. Until the powers that be ie. Congress/Senate decide to actually decide to do something, we are at the mercy of drug cartels and terrorists. I think that there is too much money being funneled to politicians to really hope for a change. I read some time ago that the worse thing that could happen to drug sales would be the legalization of marijuana. We also should use US troops on the border, we ARE being invaded by drug pushers, terrorists and from what I read, even the Mexican Army. But I don’t think this administration has the “cajones” to do anything

    • Oscar thanks for stopping by and commenting.

      You’re right the Administration doesn’t have the cajones to do anything to stop this. They will continue to endanger the southern states and the rest of us in the US.

      All we can do is pray that God changes things to help for the better. And pray for the families down south who must put up with this invasion and encourage them to continue to defend themselves.

      God Bless,
