Keep this in mind everyone: I often see headlines pertaining to our pathetic weakness at the southern (lol) "border" in Middle Eastern newspapers and foreign reports online. Everywhere around the globe they are watching this situation. And witnessing our suicidal tendancies and taking note of our weaknesses...

This monumentally corrupt country with a national police force that is legendary in its corruption and brutality balks at extradition if international human rights issues are involved. This was demonstrated recently in the case of Raul Gomez-Garcia, who ambushed and murdered one Colorado police officer and seriously wounded another at a baptismal party in 2005, then scurried like a cockroach back to Mexico. Gomez-Garcia (who was in the U.S. illegally) was extradited only after Colorado prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty.

The Trans-Texas Corridor, Gov. Rick Perry's massive transportation project, hit some speed bumps Friday.
A sharply-worded report from the State Auditor's Office was released - and a member of the Republican leadership in the House filed a bill to repeal the plan, which could encompass up to 8,000 miles.
Brenham Rep. Lois Kolkhorst’s bill is almost identical to one already filed by Democrat state Rep. David Leibowitz of Helotes, near San Antonio.
With lawmakers from both sides of the aisle questioning the project, organizers of a March 2 rally are hoping thousands of Texans will make their way to the state Capitol for a protest...

A person injured Saturday when a Border Patrol agent fired at an oncoming vehicle was treated at a hospital and released.
That person and a passenger who was in the vehicle at the time remain in custody on unspecified charges.
The agency provided few details Sunday but gave the following account:
Agents tried to stop a Lincoln Navigator driving north on Arizona 286 about 10 miles north of the Sasabe port of entry, said Jesus Rodriguez, a Border Patrol spokesman.
An agent got out of his vehicle and approached the sport utility vehicle, which appeared to have stopped.
The SUV quickly turned around around and came toward the agent, who fired his gun because he felt threatened. The Navigator didn't strike the agent, and was driven away. It was later stopped in Sasabe, Rodriguez said.
Agents arrested two individuals, one of whom suffered minor injuries, Rodriguez said.
The genders of the people in the SUV weren't available Sunday. Rodriguez also didn't know whether the injured person suffered a gunshot wound.
That individual was taken to a hospital to be treated, then released and taken into custody.
Someone inside the Navigator might have fired at the agent before he used his weapon, though investigators don't know for sure, Rod-riguez said.
Agents found 1,300 pounds of drugs in the SUV, which were reported stolen in Mesa, Rodriguez said.
The agent's name was not released Sunday. He has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation of the shooting, which is standard agency practice.
