The violence along our border continues while the Obama administration files lawsuits and plays political games. And now, in a truly frightening and unprecedented development, we learn from Diggers Realm that at least two ranches in Laredo, TX have been taken over by Los Zetas, a violent paramilitary Mexican drug gang. Reportedly the residents of these ranches were allowed to leave unharmed.
The bloodbath continues along our southern border and now word is coming in that Los Zetas, the highly trained killers formerly with the Gulf Cartel, have crossed into the United States and taken over at least two ranches in the Laredo, Texas area….
Anonymous sources in law enforcement in the Laredo area tonight have passed on word that US law enforcement agencies are in the area and are weighing their options regarding the ranches. The media has been silent on this incident and some law enforcement in the area say that they are furious that the media is not reporting the whole story of the continued violence along the border….
What will it take for our government to stop playing games and start fulfilling their responsibility to secure the border and protect our US citizens?

Two sources inside the Laredo Police Department confirmed the incident is unfolding and they would continue to coordinate with U.S. Border Patrol today. “We consider this an act of war,” said one police officer on the ground near the scene. There is a news blackout of this incident at this time and the sources inside Laredo PD spoke on the condition of anonymity….
UPDATE, July 25, 2:56pm by Don Rowan: “I attended the DODIIS [DOD Intelligence Information System] Conference in Phoenix, AZ the 23rd-27th of May. During my stay there I had the chance to talk with some folks from the Fort Huachuca area [southern Arizona about 20 miles from the Mexican border] — and the stories they told about drug smugglers coming through the ranches along the border were terrible. Shot up things, killed livestock, killed watch dogs, etc. Border patrol either cannot or will not take charge — I am sure they cannot but then there are Federal drug enforcement personnel that tend to not want to get into shooting matches with the Mexican drug smugglers as they bring drugs across the border. So much for heros in DEA.”
UPDATE, July 25, 5:43pm: ALIPAC questions the veracity of the report.
