According to figures from U.S. Bureau of International Narcotics & Law Enforcement Affairs, the annual budget for security programs based out of the American Embassy in Mexico City have grown from $12 million in fiscal year 2002 to $40 million in fiscal year 2005.

U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Tony Garza said the increased funds also come at a time when cooperation between law enforcement agencies on both sides of the border has reached record levels under Mexican President Vicente Fox.

Bush and Fox have been so flagrant about their open border plans that it would not surprise me if Bush is financing alien and drug smuggling into the US. It makes no sense for us to give 40 million dollars to Mexico for “anti-drug” programs. I would like to know whose pocket this money ends up in.

The Mexican staging area for illegal aliens that New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson demanded this week be bulldozed is among hundreds of similar sites along the border sponsored and maintained by the Mexican government.

Many of the sites are marked with blue flags and pennants to signal that water is available. Others, such as the Las Chepas site that Mr. Richardson denounced, are a collection of old, mostly abandoned buildings or ranch houses where illegals gather for water and other supplies — sometimes bartering with smugglers, or “coyotes,” for passage north.

Las Chepas, law-enforcement authorities said, also is a center for drug smugglers looking to move marijuana and cocaine into the United States.
