Mexican drug cartels have brought war to U.S. soil | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

Think of this — in 10 years of fighting in Vietnam, we lost 57,000 men on the battlefield.

Since 2006, Mexican criminals/narcos, the scum of the earth, killed 22,700 of their own people, and included are Americans, how many Americans we will never really know. There are kidnappings of American citizens who are held for ransom, and our U.S. government will not do a thing about it.

This is the country that borders the southern part of the United States. This is the same border our Congress, both houses, will not make a decision about the border states of the United States, to help U.S. citizens.

Something is very wrong; the president of the United States has sided with the illegals and drug cartels of Mexico. He has rallied all minorities, including illegals, to protest against the great state of Arizona and all American citizens.

By the way, 22,700 homicides in four years on our southern border works out to 5,675 a year. In 10 years, that’s 56,750 dead for drugs on the southern border of the United States.

We have a Vietnam in our own backyard.
