Police on Thursday found a human head by the main entrance to City Hall in Acapulco, Mexico. A turf war exists among drug gangs competing for control of the region, so they can smuggle drugs up the coast and into the United States.
A note was found signed with the letter “Z,” which authorities said was an attempt to link the death to “Las Zetas,” a group of former elite Mexican soldiers who now work for the Gulf drug cartel.The discovery came one day after a decapitated body was found outside the residence of city employee Maria Teresa Ascencio Villasenor, a close ally of Mayor Felix Salgado. Police said the letter “Z” was carved into the chest.
Ascencio and four of her relatives were injured May 10 when assailants launched a grenade near her home.
Neither the head nor body have been identified.
Earlier this month, a severed human head washed up on the beach in the heart of Acapulco’s tourist zone. In April, suspected drug gunmen decapitated two police officers who had participated in a shootout with traffickers.
Salgado, who has been mayor eight months, called the killing “an act of provocation” aimed at forcing him out of office. source
What does any of the above have to do with immigration? It’s just another example of the politics that goes on in Mexico. It shows the extent that these gangs will to go to get their drugs to market. The gangs that traffic in human cargo are no different. The same routes for moving drugs are used for moving illegals into the United States.
If you have ever been to Mexico, Acapulco in particular, you know that it is a beautiful place — if you stay inside the resort area. If you walk on the beach, or leave the protection of the resort, you are subject to the ‘real Mexico’. It’s a place of proverty that you cannot imagine without seeing it. People living in sheds and lean-to’s that we would not even allow our livestock to stay in. Children begging for coins or anything.
It’s no wonder they want to get out and start a life somewhere else, specifically the US. But if their elected officials would do their jobs, get the criminals out of the police departments, clamp down on the drugs and gangs… perhaps Mexico could have a thriving economy, a place where their citizens could make a living for their families.
