Will Mexican Crime Terrorize Citizens on the U.S. Border?

Kidnapping and Ransom Insurance
The U.S. public used to be in danger of a kidnapping/ransom scenario when overseas. It’s getting so violent on our southern U.S. border that now kidnapping and ransom insurance is being offered.

I recently began to take a closer look at kidnappings in the U.S. along the border with Mexico when approached by a client who was looking to be protected by SEXTON E.P. agents.

The nerve and daring of these Mexican drug gangs is very disturbing. Probably even more disturbing is the fact that Law and Order South of our border could be more appropriately termed; “Lawlessness and Disorder”. It would appear that if criminals can not pay off Law Enforcement personnel, they just kill them.

We are very fortunate to have such professional Law Enforcement officers on our side of the border. Still, they can not be everywhere all of the time. It is very disturbing to learn of the many cases of U.S. citizens being grabbed in areas like Southern Texas and Southern California and taken across the border.

If you are wondering why they are being allowed through the border, the answer is painfully simple. Border officials are concentrating on traffic headed North to the U.S. and not vice versa.

Visitors to these areas who may not have considered themselves to be in any danger are encouraged to be very aware of their surroundngs. Businesses operating along the border, or who have reason to travel to Mexico, are advised to exercise extreme caution where their employees/managers/executives are concerned.

Threat Assessments and Risk Management policies should be conducted and re-visited on a regular basis.

    When are they going to realize that the only way to stop the violence is to legalize and regulate drugs? These gangs won’t stop as long as they can make huge profits in the illicit market created by prohibition. Almost 40 years of the drug war has shown us that doing the same thing over and over is not going to give us different results, no matter how much money we throw at the problem.
