Despite those denials, rumors are swirling of a Zetas-led invasion into Texas ranches. Digger’s Realm, a veteran immigration blogger, has the story:
"The bloodbath continues along our southern border and now word is coming in that Los Zetas, the highly trained killers formerly with the Gulf Cartel, have crossed into the United States and taken over at least two ranches in the Laredo, Texas area. I am receiving word that the owners of the ranches have evacuated without being harmed. The source is law enforcement in the area.
(Update 2 story is now 100% confirmed by second source within the Laredo Police Department)
Founder of the San Diego Minutemen Jeff Schwilk tipped me off to this story and passes along the following information on the location. The ranches are said to be “near Mines Rd. and Minerales Annex Rd about 10 miles NW of I-35″.
Update 1 (Statement from Mr. Schwilk)
I can personally vouch that this info came in late last night from a reliable police source inside the Laredo PD. There is currently a standoff between the unknown size Zeta forces and U.S. Border Patrol and local law enforcement on two ranches on our side of the Rio Grande. The source tells us he considers this an “act of war” and that the military is needed on the border now!"
You don't need to throw your AK-47 in the back of your pickup with 10,000 rounds of ammo and drive to Texas to repel the invasion. Checks with the local PD by multiple sources show the story to be a fake. But it illustrates how you can't believe everything you hear - no matter how much you love it and want to repeat it.
The story I quote is from Michelle Malkin a major right-wing blogger, the darling of the wingnuts, fan of the teabaggers, and a one-woman hate group.

Hey Manly, I was really hoping this thread would die. That's why I left it alone.

Building a southern border wall to keep out illegal immigrants is a Pres. Trump promise that is strongly supported by his base. Is it really a viable solution?To be clear, I think a "wall" is an emotional response that is silly. As many pundits have sais; "A 20' wall will just...

I stumbled across this John Stossel video piece.*Just click image to viewI am not a big fan of links with no explanation, but on this one, 'ya gotta' watch the video to get the point of the OP.
