Mexican Drug Cartels Present In Three Arkansas Cities

Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor have voted FOR amnesty for illegals. During the election year, Pryor voted AGAINST amnesty. Who knows how he will vote next time. Note the following:

Mexican Drug Cartels Present in Three Arkansas Cities
KARK 4 News : Apr 21, 2009 - Violent Mexican drug cartels have been making headlines in recent weeks. And now comes word that the Department of Justice reports cartel organizations exist in 230 American cities.

Of alarming note for Arkansans is that three cities on the list are in the Natural State: Little Rock, Fort Smith and Fayetteville.

U.S. Senator Mark Pryor says coordination of counternarcotics enforcement among every level of government is critical in order to combat drug smuggling across the border and cartel infiltration of U.S. cities.

He held a Senate hearing Tuesday, entitled “Counternarcotics Enforcement: Coordination at the Federal, State and Local Level,” where Arkansas State Drug Director, Frances Flener, testified about the state’s current drug environment and the effectiveness of counter-drug programs.
“The drugs and violence in Mexico are a national, state and local problem. That’s why combating this problem requires law enforcement -- at every level of government -- working together,” Pryor said. “It’s evident that fostering cooperation and information-sharing works, and that we must bolster these resources to really get a grip on drug trafficking and use.”
Pryor said there is common agreement that programs fostering a coordinated approach are effective, including the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) program. The HIDTA program enables law enforcement to assess drug trafficking problems and design specific initiatives to reduce production, manufacture, transportation, distribution and chronic use of drugs. Four counties in Arkansas -- Washington, Benton, Pulaski and Jefferson -- have the HIDTA designation. Pryor recently included an amendment in the Senate’s Budget Resolution to increase the funding and counties that can participate in the program.

In her testimony, Flener said, “One of the HIDTA program’s most important contributions to the nation has been the partnerships it has nurtured among participating agencies. This has led to the leveraging of resources and sharing of intelligence through a regional coordinated approach.”

Pryor is chairman of the Ad Hoc Subcommittee on State, Local and Private Sector Preparedness and Integration.

. . . True conservatives value pragmatism over idealism, and prefer smaller government coupled with increased individual liberty and responsibility. Current state and federal drug laws violate these principles. Pragmatism would dictate that the so-called "war on drugs" cannot be won for the simple reason that there has never been, nor will there ever be, a "drug-free America."

Secondly, state and federal drug laws violate the conservative principle of less government intrusion into the lives of its citizens. There are millions of responsible adults in the U.S. who make positive contributions to society and who are occasional drug users. Current drug laws turn these otherwise responsible people into criminals.

Marijuana represents sixty percent of the drugs smuggled into this country by the Mexican drug cartels.(1) If pot were legalized, it would break the backs of these criminal organizations. U.S. government would take control of licensing of local marijuana growing facilities, make huge sums of money by taxing its distribution. Violent crime dropped dramatically after Prohibition was repealed because organized crime no longer controlled the distribution of alcohol. The same would happen in the case of legalizing marijuana.

As long as the southern border is open we will have this problem no matter what law enforcement does. We should all thank Lincoln and Pryor for their hard work for the Mexicans who invade this nation. They threw us under the bus. Now we will have to suffer for it. I don't see this turning out good for any of us here in N W Arkansas. The Mexican government can't control their country and neither will ours be controlled. We all better learn how to duck and cover soon before they start shooting up our streets. Thanks Lincoln and Pryor. I will hekp vote you 2 out.
