Breitbart Texas: Citizen Journalists in Mexico
Risking Death to Expose Cartels,
Corruption and Media Blackout
by Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz30 Jul 2014
REYNOSA, Tamaulipas — In a city overrun by drug cartels, shootouts, kidnappings, extortion, and executions, a group of citizen journalists continues to shed light into what local media will not report and on what Mexican officials continue to deny: the extent of cartel violence and the corruption of officials in the Mexican government.
[JoAnn’s comments: Note map above. As you read this article and watch the chilling interview, note that Reynosa is just across the OPEN BORDER (Rio Grande River) from Hidalgo, Texas, which is just south of McAllen.
Breitbart Texas reporters, JoAnn, and other grassroots/TEA party leaders stood on the bank of the Rio Grande last Friday just across from Reynosa and saw how easy it is for dangerous people to swim or raft across, jump a waist-high fence, and run into the narrow alleys to disappear into the city. According to the Texas Dept. of Public Safety, these same Cartel groups are present in Texas, working with transnational gangs. Border Patrol Agents tell us that Cartel members already fire on them at the border. The US media and local government authorities ignore it because it would be bad for local tourism and messy if the American people knew it. How long will it be until the Cartels are at war in our cities? We are being deceived by our own elected officials, and it is a dark betrayal of epic and dangerous proportions.]
