MEXICO DECLARES WAR
Mexico has allegedly declared war upon America. A Mexican drug cartel allegedly put a price on Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio head. The bounty is allegedly more than $1 million.
Fox News reports:
PHOENIX – He’s been at the center of the discussions and controversies surrounding illegal immigration enforcement in Arizona for quite a while.
On the day parts of Arizona’s immigration law, SB 1070, went into effect, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is in the news for another reason: there’s a price on his head – allegedly offered by a Mexican drug cartel.
The audio message in Spanish is a bit garbled, but the text is clear.
“It’s offering a million dollars for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s head and offering a thousand dollars for anyone who wants to join the Mexican cartel.”
A man who wants to remain anonymous says his wife received the text message Tuesday evening. It also included an international phone number and instructions to pass the message along.
This is very disturbing. It is exact proof of why America must remain vigilant in ensuring our right to regulate the communications of not only our country, but the entire world. Other nations, such as Mexico, lack the sophistication and infrastructure to monitor rogue elements, such as America.
With America’s excellent track record of respecting the privacy of other nations and only doing what is necessary, for the good of mankind, this is a duty and right that must be entrusted to America, and this situation of this dangerous, potentially war-inducing text message is proof of this reason.
“She showed it to me..I was kind of disgusted..I reported it to the Sheriff’s department yesterday..they said they were going to direct the threat squad on it.”
Lisa Allen of the Sheriff’s office says they believe the message originated in Mexico.
Although the Sheriff has received numerous death threats in the past, they believe this threat is credible because of its timing.
“Arpaio gets threats pretty routinely, but obviously with this heightened awareness of his role in the immigration issue we’ve got to take this one a little bit more seriously with a million dollar contract out on him,” said Allen.
But she says what really concerns investigators is how quickly the message may have been spread. “It’s going so many different places that our folks are looking at it and thinking well at any given point in time it could land in front of some crazy person who thinks I can do that.”
As for Arpaio’s reaction to the threat, “It’s a little bit like water off a duck’s back for him, but you never know if it’s that sense of false bravado with him..you just can’t read it, I’m sure he’s concerned, I’m sure he’s concerned for his family more than anything else,” said Allen.
The Sheriff’s office says investigators are trying to trace exactly where the text message came from, but because it did originate from an international number, that will be difficult too.
Everything else aside, this is a very serious matter and though the issue in Arizona is a state issue, this requires the hand of the Federal Government. We need to work with Mexico to get this type of thing tracked, immediately, and regulated. A threat against one American such as this is an attack not only on our sheriff, but on every single American. In my book, such words are an act of war and we should take it as such.
In that regard, we should be given the right to peruse Mexico’s database files to track this thing down to its roots. Washington should support Arizona’s efforts to enforce America’s immigration laws, and the edicts set forth by President Ronald Reagan in the 1980s.Thanks for rating this!
