Another Day in Paradise South of the Border

Newsnm note - (Spence) Borrowing of more money to address the plight of the Libyans might be a noble thought, but it should not be our priority. On our southern border, neighbors we care deeply about are facing atrocities every single day. In the meantime, the majority in Washington is actually cutting funding for border security as it blindly sinks deeper into the tribal conflict in Libya. In the wake of widespread violence against law enfocement officials on both sides of the border including the killing of U.S. Border Patrol agents, the lack of attention to this deplorable situation is inexcusable. Where is the leadership? Fox News - Ciudad Juarez – A prosecutor who oversaw investigations in this violent Mexican border city was gunned down Friday outside his home, the Chihuahua state Attorney General's Office said. Mario Ramon Gonzalez was attacked at 8:20 a.m. while he was on his way to the Ciudad Juarez branch of the state AG's office.

According to the initial investigation, Gonzalez was shot at by gunmen wielding rifles who had arrived at his home in three black vehicles. Gonzalez's body was found next to his car in the driveway and the area was subsequently cordoned off by dozens of state, municipal and federal police while forensics experts and homicide detectives gathered evidence. Also in Juarez, three children under the age of 5 were killed when their home caught fire Thursday following a Molotov cocktail attack. The mother of the three children, who was inside the home at the time of the attack, suffered burns, officials said, adding that dozens of rescue workers were rushed to the scene in a vain attempt to save the youths. More than 8,500 people have been killed in Ciudad Juarez, located across the border from El Paso, Texas, and dubbed Mexico's murder capital, in the past four years.
