Build That Wall: Mexico Murder Rate Highest in Decades

By Chris Black

They’re not sending their best now, do they? Here’s from the WSJ:

“ The number of murders in Mexico rose sharply last year, pushing the homicide rate to its highest level since at least 1990 as violence among drug gangs persisted and highlighting the challenge faced by the incoming administration to contain criminal violence. The National Statistics Institute said Monday the number of murders rose 27% last year to 31,174, the most on record going back to 1990 and equivalent to 25 per 100,000 inhabitants. The homicide rate rose from 20 per 100,000 in 2016, and was above the recent high of 24 in 2011. Criminal violence began soaring in 2008 after the government engaged the military and federal police in efforts to rein in powerful drug gangs that were taking control of hot spots around the country. After a lull from 2012 to 2014, the violence took off again in 2015.”

While the cartels get the headlines, there is a significant amount of other crime in Mexico (and here and elsewhere) as well. For example kidnappings and robberies where seemingly gratuitous violence is used. Not directly related to drugs but the usual causes of crime.

Mexico’s social difficulties have gotten worse because they have picked up some of America’s bad habits (reduction in importance of the basic family structure, shallow materialism, less religious affiliation, substance abuse, etc)  while not adding many good habits (genuine respect for rules, belief in free enterprise, etc). Prohibitions against abortion and gay marriage have or are being lifted. This is destroying Mexico’s last bedrocks against anarchy – the strong family structure and the church.

Mexico should threaten us with war for doing nothing to deal with our drug addiction debacle. It’s our junkies and yuppie idiots oblivious to the hundreds of thousands of Mexican dead that are fueling the  Mexican murder rate. Mexicans are literally killing each other for marketing rights to our dope fiends, since we insist on keeping it all illegal, there’s no court available to them…just a gun.

 

As a fun factoid, here are the US murder rates as per USA Today:

 

2017                           Per 100K

 

Tulsa                                     82 20.3

Charlotte                           85 21.8

Las Vegas                         141   22.3

Indianapolis                    154    23.3

Chicago                             650 24

Memphis                          200  30.6

Kansas City                     149    31

Detroit                                267 39.7

New Orleans                   158    40.4

Baltimore                         343 55.8

 

Only Tulsa has a Republican Mayor- the bottom 9 are all Democrats.  What else do these cities have in common? That’s a question we’re not supposed to ask. Do you know the answer?

The good news is that President Trump threteaned to shut-down the “feral gumming” one month before the mid-term elections, if the Congress doesn’t pass an omnibus-bill that would fully found his big-beautiful wall at the Mexico border.

 

Walls don’t work, with the exception of everywhere they are tried. Even the Antifa idiots in Portland built a WALL to keep out those they didn’t like.

Meanwhile, here’s what DEMs want:

Hank Linderman is challenging incumbent Rep. Brett Guthrie, who has been in Congress since 2009.

I know that it is fully possible that legal immigrants commit crimes at a rate lower than U.S. citizens, and that they are incarcerated at a lower rate than U.S. citizens. After all, legal immigrants are well vetted, and if they have criminal records in their countries of origin, they are generally ineligible for admission to the US.

The same cannot be said for illegal aliens, because virtually all adult, illegal aliens commit felonies in order to procure the documents they need to get jobs, to drive and to obtain other benefits that are restricted to U.S. citizens.

The vast majority of illegal aliens use fraudulently obtained Social Security numbers. They possess fake drivers’ licenses, phony “green cards,” fraudulent birth certificates and any other documents that U.S. citizens and legal residents have. In addition, they falsify I-9 forms under penalty of perjury. Thus, the average illegal alien routinely commits multiple felonies –forgery, Social Security fraud, identity theft, and perjury.

Anyone who assumes that ANY Democrat is concerned in the least about public safety just hasn’t been paying attention.
