Mexico drugs war: Corruption grows on US border

Mexican drug cartels are increasingly targeting American border guards and customs agents with bribes and sexual favours, a US security official says.

Charles Edwards of the US Department of Homeland Security told a Senate committee the cartels were using what he called systematic corruption to smuggle drugs and migrants into the US.

He said the cartels were also seeking tip-offs about police investigations.

Another official said 127 US agents had been arrested or tried since 2004.

Alan Bersin, the US customs and border protection commissioner, said Mexico's offensive against the cartels combined with the rise in the hiring of border agents in recent years has multiplied the risks of corruption.

Mr Edwards named the Zetas cartel as being involved increasingly in systematic corruption.

It came in the form of monetary bribes, sexual favours and other methods to encourage border agents to assist drug traffickers, those involved in smuggling undocumented immigrants, or to ignore their activity, he said.

Remember when the Minutemen were called vigilantes by the White House? So they were vigilantes and those Border Patrol who get a BJ are just fine.

Don't let this country forget that the Minutemen were our first responders to the problems at the border and telling the truth. They did what they did because the country needed it, not because they were paid to watch by getting a BJ.

Too true, Jean.

The Obamination shows enthusiasm for border patrols only because it is an excuse to hire anchor babies. And look what we get. English as a first language should be a prerequesite for jobs in the border patrol.
