Santa Fe, NM - New Mexico is boosting its police presence on the border.

Gov. Bill Richardson's office said the New Mexico State Police and county sheriff's departments have increased patrols along the border.

The U.S. Border Patrol has also boosted its presence.

Richardson said it is important for law enforcers to "continue to be on guard against drug-related violence on the Mexican side of the border."

In 2005, Richardson declared a state of emergency along the New Mexico-Mexico boundary because of border-related violence.

Earlier this month, Texas Governor Rick Perry announced increased national guard troops and helicopter patrols on the U.S./Mexico border from Brownsville to El Paso.

Better get used to it, Juarez just kicked the Cartels out of the city. If people in Juarez damage the bridges and shut them down for repairs, Im pretty sure it will take them months to get fixed. So the drugs have to go in to the USA through the desert.

So there you go America, now you are gonna see what Juarez went through.

AMERICA SHOULD NOT HAVE TO BE COMPARED TO SCUM JUAREZ....DRUGS DON'T HAVE TO COME IN THE USA, KEY WORD HAVE TO...

This New Mexico initiative is apparentlty in response to the murder of an Arizona rancher by an illegal alien. The claim that local law enforcement officers are not trained to find and arrest illegals is completely ludicrous. Officers are being expected to handle much more complicated issues, such as mentally ill people and terrorists. The prohibition is nothing but political posturing by the pro-illegal-alien Democratic establishment.
