If Elizabeth Garcia is here to do the "right" thing and not the "legal" thing....then she needs to be arrested. What is legal is what is right...no matter how much you want things to be different.

Elizabeth....if you want to make thing better for the Mexicans then go over there and help them reclaim their country...keep their drugs and gangs and violence out of our country and we can maintain a secured border instead of having our military on it. AMERICANS AND TEXANS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO SACRIFICE OUR CHILDREN AND OUR WAY OF LIFE AND WHAT WE HAVE WORKED HARD TO HAVE AND MAINTAIN BECAUSE ANOTHER COUNTRY'S PEOPLE CANNOT HAVE A GOVERNMENT THAT CAN CONTROL THE VIOLENCE AND HELP THEIR PEOPLE HAVE A GOOD LIFE IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY.

Victoria was the only successful Tejano Colony in early Texas, and I believe that those of us from South Texas are proud of that part of our heritage...but the thing is that when Martin De Leon settled this area....he did it LEGALLY...BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER TEXAS GAINED HER INDEPENDENCE FROM MEXICO. If hind sight has taught us anything...it would be that our forefathers had great foresight in seeing what the Government in Mexico, which by the way they supported in the War for Mexican Independence, was not going to be anything but corrupt under the federal govt. strong hold that Santa Anna and dictators like him were headed. Mexico has its problems because the people of Mexico have allowed it to be that way for almost 200 years now....it is NOT our fault....it is NOT our problem... but when it starts coming across our border, with violence, murder, drugs, taking our jobs, and living off our tax dollars, and putting our kids and families in danger...how stupid would we be to allow this to happen?

I AM SICK...SICK...SICK...OF HEARING ABOUT THIS TRACTOR TRAILER FULL OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS THAT HAPPENED TO STOP AT A GAS STATION IN VICTORIA...I AM OFFENDED THAT THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE IS CRAMMING THIS DOWN OUR THROATS EVERYTIME I OPEN THE PAPER. CHRIS COBBLER AND ALL THE VICAD STAFF.....SHUT UP ALREADY....HOW MANY TIMES AND HOW MANY OF YOUR NEIGHBORS, FELLOW CITIZENS, AND PEOPLE WHO READ AND SUBSCRIBE TO YOUR PAPER HAVE TO TELL YOU ENOUGH IS ENOUGH BEFORE YOU GET IT?

I have no problems with the Mexican nationals who have lived her and I have grown up with and around all my life...but I am not willing to sacrifice my job in the current economic stresses, my children, or my children's lives to people who are going to bring the crap they live in over in Mexico to my State, my Country, and my Town. I am offended that this keeps getting shoved down our throats like Victorians had a something to do about any of it.

Elizabeth sell it somewhere else, go help these people in their country or face the consequences of the laws of this state and nation. I felt terrible about these poor people and the fate that met them while trying to better their lives and their families lives in this country. But the fact is there is a legal way of doing that and that is not the choice they made. As for those who made money off of these people and put them in conditions that were and proved to be deadly...they have been arrested, tried, and convicted and will pay to the fullest extent for that tragic crime.
Your heart is in the right place...but the answer is not smuggle them over here, and I'll thank you not to put my children at risk by helping these poor people smuggle drugs over here to peddle on them. I do feel for the people of Mexico, they are very hard working people who are looking for a way out of the day to day violence, fear, and poverty they live in in their own country....but with those folks will also come gang members, drug dealers, and the cartels. We have a president now who just this past week made a trip to Mexico to work out some kind of support between our nations to get this mess under control and hopefully we can open our borders again in the friendly and peaceful ways that we have long enjoyed with other countries in the western hemisphere. Perhaps you need to watch the news, check out the Video "Silver or Lead" to gain a full understanding of what is actually going on. The military is the only thing that can battle this violence and senseless murdering of not only young Americans but young Mexicans as well. How many murdered victims have been found each year in the outskirts of Victoria in the past several years? You need to check it out...why would you want to do anything to put your kids and the rest of our kids at risk? Would you let your kids play in the middle of Navarro street?

Martin De Leon's family and the Mexican people who settled in Victoria fought for, and supported the Texas cause for independence, and they did so as great risk of their own lives, that of their families and those of their family members still living in Mexico. I don't think that our founder would appreciate the constant push from the Victoria Advocate in advocating the cause of illegal immigration especially under the violent and deadly dangerous thing that are happening in our border towns now.
