    "Protesters block bridges between Mexico, Texas"

    Hundreds of Mexican people blocked bridges to the United States in three border cities Tuesday, demanding the Mexican army leave. The protests in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico blocked traffic across three bridges connecting the city to El Paso, Texas. Similar protests broke out on bridges in the border cities of Nuevo Laredo and Reynosa. Border towns have been transformed by the crackdown, with soldiers in ski masks regularly rumbling down the streets in large convoys. Mostly women and children, blocked the Paso del Norte bridge leading from Ciudad Juarez to downtown El Paso, Texas.

    In Ciudad Juarez, where three police officers — including the operations director of the city police — were shot to death. Another officer was wounded. Police also found several other bodies apparently killed in separate incidents. In Nuevo Laredo, 150 people blocked three bridges leading to Laredo, Texas. Many were masked men, a gunbattle reached the bridge. The battle took place in Reynosa between federal police and a group of gunmen and soldiers. Five gunmen were killed and seven police officers were wounded. And in the southern state of Guerrero, police said they found the bullet-ridden bodies of two 16-year-old boys who had been reported kidnapped.

    So let's make sure I've got this...

    Mexicans are fighting with their own military, killing each other and blocking access to America...as a protest that they aren't being allowed to illegally enter the US?

    We no longer need Polish jokes, folks.

    At least they don't make people nauseuous and fearful for their kids, as yours do.
