Mexicans can smuggle just about anything across the border and upon this realization came the Mexican drug cartel boom. “The Columbians began heavily relying on Mexican smuggling prowess in the 1990’s as Columbia’s larger criminal factions dissolved into smaller groups” (Mexico’s Internal Drug War, 2006). The Columbians soon began selling cocaine at wholesale price to Mexican cartels, which caused the rival cartels (the Sinaloa cartel and the Juarez cartel) to battle over the control of the profit. “The downstream revenue is largely dictated by points of entry into the United States, such as Nuevo Laredo, and points of reception from Columbia, such as Acapulco” (Mexico’s Internal Drug War, 2006). The demand for drugs, such as cocaine and marijuana, in the United States has steadily increased in the last few decades.
According to Astrid Gonzalez “Juarez is an ideal place to kill women, because you’re certain you will get away with it” (Dillon 1). Juarez is not a city full of hope anymore. The city of Juarez is known all around the world for the assassination of the young women and girls. Some of these women and girls were maquiladora workers (Vila 14). In the 1990s, Juarez was the largest export-processing zone on the U.S./Mexico Border.
The government has made many attempts for prevention, but the cartels still earn in tens of billions of dollars a year. Illegal weaponry has gotten into the hands of the cartels and gangs and battles with troops have become more difficult because of the weapons they possess. Recently, drug traffickers threatened to kill one police officer in Juarez every 48 hours unless Police Chief Roberto Orduña Cruz stepped down. When he refused, his deputy turned up
President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated on Friday, November 22nd 1963 at 12:30 p.m in the Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas. John Kennedy had many people with reason to kill him and in the leading six months to his death he received over 400 threats, a few of which were serious enough to change his security routine. Ultimately president Kennedy was shot in the head and throat with three bullets in his open topped car by Lee Harvey Oswald but the question that still remains today is who hired Oswald to kill JFK. The Mafia John Fitzgerald Kennedy murder may have been organized by the new Orleans mafia boss Carlos Marcello. The motive would be that despite the mafia’s major role in Kennedy getting elected, the president had Marcello deported just after he entered into office.
Security forces moving detainees to permanent housing at Camp Delta from Camp X-Ray The basic proposition here is that somebody who comes into the United States of America illegally, who conducts a terrorist operation killing thousands of innocent Americans, men, women, and children, is not a lawful combatant. They don’t deserve to be treated as a prisoner of war. They don’t deserve the same guarantees and safeguards that would be used for an American citizen going through the normal judicial process . . .
According to Ted Lewis, “Eighty percent of the 75,000 guns Mexican authorities seized from criminals during the past 3 years came from the U.S.” (16). the lack of gun control sales in the U.S. is not only affecting the public safety of our people, but threaten the safety of our neighbors among the
There are hundreds of millions of guns in America. So, eliminating the ability of people obtaining some either illegally is impossible. A black market is likely to occur if guns were made illegal(Farago). It is already evident that illegal guns are being used in far more gun crimes than legally bought ones. Seventy-nine percent of all gun crimes in Pittsburgh for example were committed by gun owners who obtained their guns illegally(ingraham).
border of those attempting to cross into the United States from Mexico without authorization from the Federal government of the United States. The number of deaths has steadily increased since the middle 1990s with exposure (including heat stroke, dehydration, and hyperthermia) being the leading cause.

In the fiscal year ending September 29, 2004, 460 migrants died crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. In 2005, more than 500 died across the entire U.S.-Mexico border.
Kevin Reeves Philosophy Essay People who support marijuana prohibition do so unjustly with little, no, or even false justification to support their beliefs. They say we need to keep marijuana illegal to keep our society from the terrible addiction and hardships it causes. These arguments are not consistent with the fact that the two most deadly drugs in America are legal. Alcohol and tobacco lead the way in American deaths every year, killing on average nearly 500,000 people annually. It has yet to be reported that anyone has ever died from using marijuana.
Many get smuggled I will tell you how they are smuggled and the consequences of being smuggled and most interesting why they choose to move to another country. There are many ways people get smuggled across borders every day.
