    NEAR PORTAL - Neighbor ranchers of the slain Robert Krentz say they had been warning U.S. officials for years that somebody would be killed if they didn't gain control of this dangerous smuggling corridor where armed burglaries have become a daily occurrence.

    Now, they're demanding immediate action.

    Krentz, a longtime rancher, was shot and killed Saturday in Cochise County, by a likely southbound smuggler, who authorities believe escaped into Mexico.

    "The Mexican outlaws have total control, and it's going to get worse," said Ed Ashurst, whose 53,000-acre ranch is just east of the Krentz ranch. "There is going to be more bloodshed."

    On Monday, in reaction to the killing, Gov. Jan Brewer reiterated a March 2009 request to send 250 additional National Guard soldiers to Arizona's border.

    Sorry...Congress thinks giving those crooks amnesty and gullible warming are more important matters at this time.

    Please try again later.

    This country, when it comes to confronting the border problem, does what Mexico does - blah, blah, blah. It's time they not only talk the talk but walk the walk!!! Are we waiting for the type of violence that Mexico is experiencing to cross our border? Decapitations, killing the authority, killing innocent men, women, and children? Has anybody given a thought to the fact that the next victim could be one of THEIRS?? And not necessarily to those who live in border towns??? Wake up America!!!! How many more americans have to be killed by those who are here illegally for the USA to do something??? Do they think that immigration reform will stop these killings? Nah, maybe it's time to consider closing the border or putting the military there to defend and protect us.

    Most of them aren't smuggling pot anymore...Too little profit margin in it.

    Not according to the article linked. That's what the smuggler was smuggling.
