Ah, thanks for the photos. As the old saying goes... a picture is worth a million words. Be careful Larry and crew. The world is a better place with all of you in it. This is the type of reporting and news I really enjoy.
Again, thanks

Why don't you, instaed of dealing with the bureacracy just ask the criminals where your husband is. It's that simple! just put an add in the paper of the town where he was taken.Stating:
Where is my husband?
What do you want?
and please let us know if he is alive.

The American outsourcing strategies in Mexico should be minimized or eliminated until we can effecctively secure the safety of American citizens abroad!

Solution to the boarder drug problems-–Legalize Drugs in the US!
Think about IT! This wold be a great debate for Larry.
Illegal Imigration-----We need the workers for those jobs that US citizens don't want to do----–create a system that accomadates this!! Fences don't work!

If we keep pussyfooting around the mexican border will be around Denver in a few years!!
1. Every american must have an ID card with picture, fingerprint and a chip with important data that cannot be forged. The police can check the identity very fast.
2. Allow seasonal workers to enter the country for a limited period. They must leave after the work is done. This will help those who legally want to enter to make a living for their families.
3. Impose heavy fines, $25,000 or more for each case, on those employers who use illegal immigrants. Those people do not pay taxes anyway, neither the worker nor the employer. How about all those chinese sweatshops in the large cities.
4. Fortify the border and after repeated warning shoot the illegal entry. Do not forget, they are breaking laws and not out for a good jogging and the police usually shoot criminals if they do not follow orders. Why this pussyfooting on the border?
Tough? Yes and it may look like the iron curtain in Europe. But either that or start marking the border around Denver and San Francisco, adios Americanos!
However, to be honest, we took those territories from Mexico a good hundred years ago, they just want it back!

Ted from Germany,
If youreally are from Germany, you don't have to live here. So why do you care so much about our border with Mexico? Maybe the military in East Berlin would shoot people trying to cross the Berlin Wall, but we don't shoot people in America for just crossing our southern border. Unlike East Germany, the United States is not a communist country who shoots people on sight!

drugs are not the problem , the problem are the people that sells it and does who smoke it , why are there so many of them around , um take a wild guess sherlock mi casa su casa , keep at it theres plenty of it

Dave of Detroit   April 18th, 2009 11:34 pm ET

For all of you that want to legalize drugs-move to Detroit! I see cars going up and down the street passing little bags and exchanging money-if you are familiar with the system, I have little doubt that you can hook up with a delivery. The downside, of course, is the number of abandoned houses in the neighborhood from people that have moved away, no one with children wants them to be exposed to this environment and the high crime rate has the population down to 812,000 so we would be happy to have you move in-hope you don't have a problem with trash and street people breaking into your house needing a fix or drink but if that is your idea of "ambiance", jump right in! As far as Border Control, I have a real shocker for you-Coming across the border without proper papers makes you "Illegal"-I don't care what the excuse is. Our system is overloaded from the number of "Illegals" coming into the Country. If you are a legal immigrant , you have your health checked, get shots and meds where needed, can apply for Driver's licenses and pay social security benefits, go to schools, get jobs and don't have to worry about such things as your children being born citizens and you being deported back to your Native Country and separated from them. You can get healthcare in your name and, believe it or not, have the right to become U.S. Citizens and enjoy the benefits of our Society!

hello, larry great job. We need to stress ou the issue. at he longest of its stand. I am a first generation American. and one of the main issues running for Mayor of Albuquerque. Is that is a drug control community. I am requesting Federal and military help to tackle this issue. for once, and not untill is to late to do it. Half our cops serve to this cartels. Finally the former Mayor started to give up nhis power to the Feds. in reality if this guys where to take over, it would take them only a day. help.

Dave of Detroit;
You say exactly the right words. Our politicians got soft on this issue, are afraid of losing a few spanish votes. We try to fix the whole world, but unable to solve our own problems.
Mexicans have the same right to be successful and happy, but they should do it in Mexico. Legal immigration by selecting people who bring some qualification and good to the USA, a big yes!
But not drug dealers or those who will not work for the rest of their lives, but live off the country and crime. Just to make it clear, nobody should be allowed to stay after entering illegally, this should not be limited to south of the border nations.
It is also time to change the law that says anybody born in the USA is automatically a US citizen. Illegal immigrants should not have this privilege, nor pregnant tourists from Asia hoping to give birth in the USA and with it gain an entry to the country. The days are over when we needed people to fill up an empty country, we need highly qualified specialists.
