72 Massacred Illegals Didn’t Pay Ransom

From a context free Associated Press:

Families of massacred migrants couldn’t pay ransom

August 28, 2010

REYNOSA, Mexico — … The [lone] survivor, 18-year-old Luis Freddy Lala Pomavilla of Ecuador, said the killers identified themselves as Zetas, a group begun by former Mexican army special forces soldiers and now a lethal drug gang that has taken to extorting migrants…

Lala, who is recovering from a gunshot wound to the neck and is under heavy guard, told investigators the migrants were intercepted on a highway by five cars, according to his statement that The Associated Press had access to Friday.

More than 10 gunmen jumped out and identified themselves as Zetas, Lala said. They tied up the migrants and took them to the ranch, where they demanded the migrants work for the gang. When most refused, they were blindfolded, ordered to lie down and shot…

Investigators have identified 31 of the migrants: 14 Hondurans, 12 Salvadorans, four Guatemalans and one Brazilian

Mexican immigration agents have rescued 2,750 migrants this year, some stranded in deserts and others who were being held captive by organized crime gangs, she said

Manuel Boch said his son… ignored his father’s pleas to accept life as it is in Guatemala.

Boch got no news of his son until Aug. 16 when unknown callers demanded a $1,000 ransom. Relatives of the two older migrants received the same call. None could afford to pay.

The families first heard of the massacre on television…

It sounds like the US government will soon be asked to establish a fund to pay the ransoms to the drug cartels.

After all, it is all our fault.

    In a way…..it seems we have some sort of border security after all. When are the Obama lawyers going to go down and sue the drug cartels for discrimination?

    This is just horrendous!
    It is almost as bad as the treatment illegals receive in Arizona!
    Those 72 people should tell St. Peter how grateful they are that they didn’t have to face the horror of being told they needed to identify themselves, then the absolute terror of being handed over to ICE prior to receiving a warning and being released on their own recognizance.

    Thank God that caring, compassionate Mexicans got to them first!
