Three federal agencies that police the border announced Tuesday in San Diego that $40 million in Mexico-bound cash was seized on the southwest border from mid-March through September. That is nearly double the amount from the same period in 2008.

The agencies say officers also seized nearly 600 illegal weapons headed for Mexico, up more than 50 percent from last fiscal year.

The announcement came as top federal immigration officials discuss ways to curb the flow of weapons and drug sale profits into Mexico from the United States. The conference includes U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement , U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. I wonder if they count the bullets

WOW ---600 in 6 months for all of San Diego!

I guess the rest of the bordering states are letting in the 100,000 or so remaining guns that the Boxer/Pelosi/Feinstein/Hillary/Villaraigosa and Mr. Whoever Presidente is claiming to be coming from the US. :King: ---insert Boxer/Pelosi/Feinstein/Hillary/Villaraigosa under the crown

What they forget to mention is that money does'nt move itself and 40 mil in cash is surrounded by alot of people with guns who are likely going to accompany it all the way to Mexico. Anything to tart up the numbers I guess.

I wonder what the definition of "illegal weapons" are in this case? Could be switchblade knives for all we know.

Wherever the guns are coming from, 100% of the money is coming from American consumers of illegal drugs.

Legalize those drugs and <poof!> go the massive profits.

Then no one will be worrying about guns crossing the borders anymore.
