Attack on Mexican border prison leaves at least 14 dead; more than 20 inmates escape

Ten guards and four inmates were killed in a stunning jailbreak triggered by gunmen in armored vehicles opening fire on a Mexican state prison across the border from El Paso, Texas.

At least 24 inmates escaped in the chaos.

The prison in Ciudad Juarez, was under attack early Sunday and left 13 people wounded in addition to the 14 deaths, according to the Chihuahua state prosecutor’s office.

Gunmen in the bulletproof vehicles arrived around 7 a.m. at Cereso No. 3 state prison and started shooting, officials said, according to the El Paso Times.

Later Sunday, Mexican soldiers and state police finally took back control of the prison — but not before more than 20 prisoners broke out. The state prosecutor’s office said its officials were investigating the deadly incident.

Shortly before the prison attack, municipal police were under seige — but were able to round up four men after a pursuit, according to the state prosecutor’s office. Police subsequently killed two alleged gunmen riding in an SUV.

I wonder what $147 billion and US military support would do for our border...

They’ll be in the States wreaking murder and mayhem within a day, thanks to the demonrat party and their vile republican enablers.

That’s ~$75,000,000 per mile. ($147b/1,951)

The southern border needed to be totally militarized 30 years ago. The damage is done and the demographic trajectory is irreversible save some presently unknown/black swan event.

Best we can hope for is Balkanization and separation.

That’s essentially my conclusion as well.

If I have to live in a Socialist nation, it will be one with better demographics than here.

Once upon a time the citizens of El Paso only had to worry about war lords and gangs. Once in a while a grave site was discovered with the bodies of missing young women. Sometimes there were beheadings and kidnappings. There were fights between families occasionally. And as I mentioned….beheadings. Primitive.
The second largest Army base in the country , Fort Bliss, sits between them and us. Often, the commanding officer would issue orders restricting military members from visiting Juarez.
Annually, millions of Mexican citizens walked or drove thru ports of entry into El Paso to go to school, to go to work, to visit family, to shop, to visit doctors. American citizens went into Juarez to work at major American factories daily. Then they all went home each day.
When Obama, Biden, and Holder took over the United States government, everything changed. Suddenly the border crossers weren’t just Mexican citizens who went home. They were intruders and invaders from Africa, Cuba, Central America, the Middle East. They demanded a better life. Demanded. They threatened. They attacked Border Patrol. Most Democrat politicians met their demands. They were asylum seekers like Ilhan Omar….and eventually became US citizens by the 1000’s in ceremonies so large that the venue had to be changed to accommodate the numbers. Once I saw there was no American flag at the building where over 800 were being sworn in to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. A breathtaking visual to this former Army Brat and widowed military spouse. The new citizens were joyfully waving toothpick-size American flags for the cameras. You could almost imagine the “Vote Aqui” signs at the polls. You mean a new citizen couldn’t understand a sign that read “Vote Here?” Infuriating. A slap to the heart.
I’ve lived all over the world. Nothing was more important to countries than laws.
With Obama/Biden/Holder, laws were non-existent….and everyone was reassured that Catholic Charities was part of the Catholic Church.
God bless us one and all.
Happy New Year, everyone.
