Pure irony how some will speak out about horrible these countries are, and yet so many Americans today continue to bash/harass/protest illegal immigrants who try to come to the US because their lives are in mortal danger in their native country.

I guess it's just the "American" way.... feel compassion for people until they try to come here and get into a college or get a job and try to become an active member of society....then all I hear is..... "SEND THEM BACK TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM!" "NO REFORM" "I HEART JAN BREWER".... SMH!

"illegal" is the problem....no irony there

If they flee here illegally, yes they need to be detained but have officers find out why they fled their country in the first place.   Life in danger? Looking for work? Criminal record in home country.  Don't be so quick to label them all with the same circumstances.  Then if they did come in illegally due to life-threatening circumstances, find resources like immigration lawyers to help begin the process of becoming legal citizens.  My husband is an immigrant from Mexico.  I've been through the process.  Thousands and thousands of dollars and that is hard for me as an American to obtain, what about the 10 year old running with only the clothes on his back?  But No...it's "send 'em all back, they are all the same" attitude I have a problem with.

PDispatcherSTL - so beautiful yet so naive. Illegals do not come here to seek safety. They come here to seek the safety net. Heather MacDonald, a Manhattan Institute Scholar, conducted a study that concludes that illegals come here for the government programs. We have a POTUS that runs ads in spanish speaking soap operas in Mexico encouraging illegals to come here and get on food stamps. And the website www.usa.gov is set up to guide illegals on how to get on all the government assistant programs once they get here.

Mexico has a national healthcare system...no insurance companies for them, no premiums to pay, 100% free medical for ALL pregnant women regardless of whether they work or not....they are all covered.   I have friends in Chula Vista, CA that cross the boarder into Tijuana, Mexico so they can afford dental work that they can't afford here.   So it's not all about our poor assistance programs I can guarantee it, at least not for everyone.  But again, everyone is so quick to label all cases the same.  Don't want the burden of finding out the details.

Coming to a neighborhood near you... Just wait. The "nice" illegal family next door may be more than you bargained for.

If she indeed has been hanging out with Gang members then she got what she deserved. Has anyone has seen what these Mexican gangs do to people? That is one country i would NEVER EVER step my foot into. Death lives among them and spilling blood is just another hobby.

On the U.S. or themselves??

When another nation declares martial law on another country, it's called war. And I don't think that Mexico has enough gumption to declar war on the U.S.

When the United States legalizes drugs and ends the senseless war on drugs.

Must not be senseless otherwise the drug lords wouldn't work so hard to keep something they know people are addicted too and no matter if it was legal or not some would find a to get it even if it means to hurt someone.

Mexico registered some twenty two thousand murders in 2011..venezuala some fifteen thousand murders,,columbia some twelve thousand.. brazils murder rate is so many officials can not keep an accurate talley. Pick any latin american state or providence.and the blood flows freely including puerto rica..easily a half million people are murdered in south america and mexico alone.. So what is the reason these people in these areas value life so little?....Is it indeed part of there lifestyle or what is the answer?.....
12:42 AM on 11/27/2012
Lifestyle (better yet, "deathstyle") for some, native culture for more.
01:29 AM on 11/27/2012
Argentina's murder rate is actually lower than the U.S. And Chile's is even lower than that. Perhaps it has to do with being closer to the equator?

Gunned down gives the impression of being ambushed, or killed during a drive by shooting, and not being killed in a firefight between criminals and soldiers or police. As usual, sensational but not entirely accurate headlines.
12:26 AM on 11/27/2012
It is definitely bait and switch with those headlines these days

Has anyone seen anything decent coming out of Mexico? Secure our borders and leave them alone. What in the world are we doing letting them in our country?

I have been all over Mexico...some very nice hard working honest people...they will even tell you that 95% of the ones coming here illegally weren't worth a dam in Mexico...

"95% of the ones coming here illegally weren't worth a dam in Mexico... "

Do you like to assign worth to people's lives?

I have been to Mexico several times and no one has ever said such a thing to me... and I have interacted with many immigrants here (I work at a hospital) and most of them are decent, hard-working people - not whose existence is to be dismissed as "not worth a damn."

Just like any segment of society, there is bad and there is good in any society and racial groups. Wicked people comes from all shapes sizes and colors.

If they really wanted to know if she was involved in the shootout if she used the AK47 they would know, a GSR test takes about no time,,
