Mexicans Smuggling Weapons Into Mexico

Remember Mexico whining and complaining about the southbound flow of weapons? Well, it's Mexicans who are taking the weapons there.

NOGALES, Ariz. - Custom and Border Protection officers in Nogales have seized a sniper rifle and arrested two teenagers trying to cross into Mexico with the weapon.

Customs and Border Protection said Thursday that officers working southbound inspections on Tuesday night referred a car for further perusal. During the inspection, officers found the .50-caliber Armalite bolt-action rifle on top of the vehicle's engine.

The 19-year-old driver and his 17-year-old male passenger, both from Mexico, were arrested and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Officials say the discovery of the dangerous weapon may have saved lives.
And why was it American Customs and Border Patrol policing the southbound flow?  Why don't we let Mexico police what flows into their country? And, if we insist on policing what leaves our country, then why don't we insist that Mexico police what leaves their country? That's right, Mexico, if you want the USA to stop the southbound flow of weapons, then you stop the northbound flow of illegal aliens and drugs.
