  1. Not a surprise that this sort of thing happens in Mexi-Salinas. This is what you come to expect when the Mexicans inhabit an area. It becomes a mini-Mexico. Crime skyrockets, AIDS skyrocket, etc.
    It is just a horrible thing once these people move into a neighborhood or city.
    Once we have the Wall built, then there will be a return to civility.
