There is a small war raging just across the border between the US and Mexico.

Innocent lives are being lost for no reason at the hands of rival cartels that are fighting over bordering neighborhoods near the Hidalgo and Tamaulipas areas.

Eight people were killed and innocent motorist were injured in the battle between the rivals. This all happened a busy shopping center where many innocent citizens were caught in the crosshairs.

Mexican police arrived on the scene but did very little to curb the violence. These 2 cartels have been duking it out for sometime now over the same drug and human trafficking territory. This area of Mexico is so close to the US.

Breitbart has more:

“The incident took place outside a popular shopping center called H100 along Boulevard Hidalgo and quickly spread to two other neighborhoods as rival Gulf Cartel gunmen exchanged shots. Mexican military personnel and Tamaulipas state police rushed to the area, but were not able to stem the violence. Reynosa is immediately south of the U.S. cities of McAllen, Hidalgo, Pharr, and Mission.

“The battle was made worse by rush hour vehicle and foot traffic. Information provided to Breitbart Texas by Mexican law enforcement sources revealed that a young girl was hit by stray gunfire, while a man was struck by a car after he dove to the ground for cover. Six other victims, including another young child, were injured in a series of crashes due to gunmen chasing each other along the streets while firing weapons. A teenager identified as a Gulf Cartel member was killed in the shootout.”

This is just all the more reason for President Trump’s border wall.

Let the Mexicans fight and take out cartels on their soil so it doesn’t travel to our side of the border and infiltrate our country.
