Bloody Border 
Leaving the Door to Violence Open

Wian: The "Dallas Morning News" says that, according to U.S. and Mexican officials, drug cartels have recently held training camps in at least half a dozen places close to the U.S. border.
Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- March 31
    Dobbs: ...What we do know is those who are not interested in securing the borders, they're interested therefore in not winning the war on drugs, because Mexico continues to be the principle source into the United States of methamphetamines, cocaine, marijuana and heroin.
    It's inexcusable what this Congress, this president, this government permits at that border.
    Wian: It seems that it would be a very simple solution, Lou. You just secure the border, and then you stop the illegal movement of drugs and people north, the illegal movement of money and guns south. You take care of a lot of these problems. But the federal government doesn't seem to be in a hurry to do anything about it, Lou.
