The Border Wars.

"The collection of any taxes which are not absolutely required, which do not beyond reasonable doubt contribute to the public welfare, is only a species of legalized larceny. . . . The wise and correct course to follow in taxation is not to destroy those who have already secured success, but to create conditions under which everyone will have a better chance to be successful." (Calvin Coolidge inaugural address, March 4, 1925)

Fox News reports – a wounded migrant stumbled into a military checkpoint and led marines to a gruesome scene, what may be the biggest massacre so far in Mexico's bloody drug war: a room strewn with the bodies of 72 fellow travelers, some piled on top of each other, just 100 miles from their goal, the U.S. border.

The 58 men and 14 women were killed, the migrant told investigators Wednesday, by the Zetas cartel, a group of former Mexican army special forces known to extort migrants who pass through its territory.

If authorities corroborate his story, it would be the most horrifying example yet of the plight of migrants trying to cross a country where drug cartels are increasingly scouting shelters and highways, hoping to extort or even recruit vulnerable immigrants.

"It's absolutely terrible and it demands the condemnation of all of our society," said government security spokesman Alejandro Poire.

The Ecuadorean migrant stumbled to the checkpoint on Tuesday, telling the marines he had just escaped from gunmen at a ranch in San Fernando, a town in the northern state of Tamaulipas about 100 miles from Brownsville, Texas.

The Zetas so brutally control some parts of Tamaulipas that even many Mexicans do not dare to travel on the highways in the states.

Many residents in the state tell of loved ones or friends who have disappeared traveling from one town to the next. Many of these kidnappings are never reported for fear that police are in league with the criminals.

The marines scrambled helicopters to raid the ranch, drawing gunfire from cartel gunmen. One marine and three gunmen died in a gun battle. Then the marines discovered the bodies, some slumped in the chairs where they had been shot, one federal official said.

The migrant told authorities his captors identified themselves as Zetas, and that the migrants were from Brazil, Ecuador, El Salvador and Honduras.

This has to stop and our southern border must be completely sealed! Hispanic organizations like LARAZA be damned. These left wing free border nuts are killing their own people with their social progressive, liberal, anti American politics.

The main reason these people are being killed by these rouge Mexican cartels is because they are vulnerable. These people from Latin and South America are trying to get to the United States with the lure of jobs and a better life. As long as the border is open they will victim to extortions and kidnappings, slavery and murder. They are used as mules by the smugglers and are oft times extorted by the coyotes. The Mexican government is either helpless or unwilling to protect them, mainly because of Mexico’s harsh immigration policies. They do not want poor immigrants from Latin America in their country working for less than the Mexican, if that is possible. They do not want them there to drain their overtaxed social welfare programs.

Mexico has become a transit state for these Latin and South Americana migrants. They know they are not welcome in Mexico, but they are willing to risk all to make to the United States where they seek a better life and can tax our state and federal entitlement programs. This is not a social problem it’s a human rights problem exacerbated by the open border policies of the United States. If the border was closed the flow of migrants and drugs would stop.

As long as our southern border remains a sieve these migrants will risk all to get to the land of milk and honey and many will fall victim along the way. Who are the real humanitarians here? Those who urge for an open border policy or those who want to seal the border and take away the temptation to risk the perilous journey across Mexico?

Our political elite must stand with courage and begin to make some tough, but correct decisions. They must stop pandering to a perceived Hispanic voting bloc. Their actions are ruining our economy, perverting our culture and getting people killed.
