By Richard Fleischer, an attorney with over 30 years experience in Immigration law, who practices in Cincinati, Ohio and throughout the United States writes that
US Customs and Border Protection (USCBP) report that the US-Mexico border is NOT as dangerous as politicians would like you to think. In fact, is is one of the safest parts of the US and getting safer.
It's one of the safest parts of America, and it's getting safer. It's the U.S.-Mexico border, and even as politicians say more federal troops are needed to fight rising violence, government data obtained by The Associated Press show it actually isn't so dangerous after all. The top four big cities in America with the lowest rates of violent crime are all in border states: San Diego, Phoenix, El Paso and Austin, according to a new FBI report. And an in-house Customs and Border Protection report shows that Border Patrol agents face far less danger than street cops in most U.S. cities." Martha Mendoza, AP, June 3, 2010.
Will the TV pundits pick up on this or ignore it?
