    I live here on the border.  It is bad, although the problem on the US side is largely not an issue with Hispanics so much (although there are problems, mostly infectious disease/public health issues).  Rather, the problem is drug-addicted Americans burglarizing homes and businesses, then taking the goods down to Mexico, fencing them, then buying Oxycontin or heroin - both are essentially legal in Mexico.  I don't even know how to start addressing that problem.

      All the high-powered automatic weapons come from Gun Shows in Arizona and elsewhere.  Mexico is very strict on weapons...the US?  Not so much...never hear a peep about that, do ya???

      Kirstin Gillibrand will really be a big help, hatefully anti-immigrant and proudly pro-NRA....
