Number Of Dead Near Border Up To 122

From an unfazed Associated Press:

Number of bodies found Mexico state rises to 122

By Olga R. Rodriguez, Associated Press Wed Apr 13, 2011

MEXICO CITY – Mexican investigators found a clandestine grave with six bodies in Tamaulipas state, bringing to 122 the number of bodies found in pits in a region near the U.S. border that is wracked by battling drug cartels, authorities said Wednesday.

Tamaulipas state Interior Secretary Morelos Canseco said investigators are searching for more bodies at the pit found late Tuesday. The bodies were taken to a morgue in Matamoros, across the border from Brownsville, Texas.

The first graves were found earlier this month in the township of San Fernando, the same area of Tamaulipas where investigators found the bodies of 72 migrants massacred by suspects tied to the brutal Zetas drug gang last August…

Authorities also blame the latest killings on the Zetas…

Morales said 16 San Fernando police officers have been detained for allegedly protecting members of the Zetas and covering up the kidnappings of bus passengers and others who traveled on a highway connecting San Fernando to the U.S. border

The motive for the bus abductions remains unclear, though prosecutors have suggested the gang may have been forcefully recruiting people to work for it.

San Fernando is a town about 90 miles (145 kilometers) south of Brownsville, Texas, on a well-traveled stretch of highway…

Meanwhile, the recent ‘budget deal’ cuts at least $226 million from the border fence program. Not that the Democrats were ever going to allow that to be built anyway.

They want the votes. And they don’t care how many people die in the process.

    From the Wall Street Journal, a quick reversal of an earlier article –

    The U.S. State Department said Wednesday it has rescinded a warning that U.S. government officials and citizens could be targeted by Mexican drug cartels in three of the country’s states.

    State Department Spokesman Michael Toner said, “we thought it was credible information, and then it was later deemed that it was not credible enough to warrant it remaining on the website.”

    The warning, the first indicating Americans were being targeted by drug traffickers, said U.S. officials had “uncorroborated information that Mexican criminal gangs may intend to attack U.S. law-enforcement officers or U.S. citizens in the near future in Tamaulipas, Nuevo León and San Luis Potosí” states. Among the cities affected by the warning was Monterrey, the country’s northern business hub.

    No doubt the Dems and Mexico reminded the DoS dopes what’s what.
