This story of the latest mass murder in Mexico has no legs unless Arizona Jan Brewer says that "Acapulco is a part of Arizona". If this doesn't happen the American left who are the protectors of Mexican interests will prove once again that their care for these people only extends to those who have made it across the border.
It seems to me that an increased amount of pressure needs to be directed upon the Mexican government to better address the situation that is spiraling out of hand down there, causing more people to seek to come to the USA to escape the chaos. Indeed the present state of the American economy has had a suppressive effect on illegal immigration. Once things get back to normal in a few years the flow will return to previous levels.
