    Two city officials in Monterrey, Mexico, were kidnapped on Sunday and Monday, respectively, the state-run Notimex news agency reported.

    The city's secretary of roadways and transit, Enrique Barrios Rodriguez, and the director of transit, Reynaldo Ramos Alvarado, were taken from their homes by gunmen, Nuevo Leon state officials said, according to Notimex.

    According to initial reports, Barrios was kidnapped at his house where he was with his family in the early morning Monday, by a group of men who broke through the front door. His garage door was also knocked down.

    Barrios had only been in his post since May 14, Notimex said.

    The day before, Ramos was kidnapped in a similar fashion, authorities said.

    At about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, the transit director was taken from his home, Notimex reported.

    Police offered no motive and did not name any criminal organization as the perpetrators. The state of Nuevo Leon is known to have a lot of drug cartel activity.

    Before being named roadways and transit secretary this month, Barrios was an adminstrative director for the city, and had previously served as a state congressman from 2003 to 2006 and a federal congressman from 2006 to 2009.

    One has to wonder if this will begin to happen in the USA if the feds fail to secure the border. I guess they are waiting for the cartels to come across and start their crime spree in the USA before they make a move in securing the border. It is a matter of time....
