Who is at fault?

How escaped drug lord Guzman has poisoned the streets of Chicago
    Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman may be far from the streets of Chicago, but he has run them for a long time.
    As much as 80% of the illegal narcotics in America's third-largest city come from Guzman's Sinaloa cartel, said Art Bilek, a retired Chicago detective who spent 60 years in law enforcement.
    "Guzman is the reason you've got kids fighting over just one corner, and shooting each other," he said.
    Much of the gun violence in the city can be traced to drugs that come from Sinaloa, the region of Mexico where "El Chapo" was born to a poor rural family and rose to lead a global network of smugglers, dealers, assassins, corrupt politicians and paid-off police.
    "Guzman has hurt everyone --- the users in the city and the suburbs, the innocent bystanders, the kids who get wrapped up in gangs," said Bilek, who ran the nonprofit Chicago Crime Commission, one of nation's oldest civic anti-crime organizations.

The Real Criminals
    As the chief pilot for Operation BEEF, the project to map the progress of the construction of the fence on the Mexican border, I watched as fences and vehicle barriers were built. Looking at the data, I discovered something important - as we began to stop drugs from crossing the border, Mexican gangs began fighting over the remaining routes.
    As the only organization with this data, American Border Patrol produced a video pointing this out, but the media would have nothing of it.
    There is no question that America has the ability to stop Mexican drugs (and Mexicans) from crossing the border. The real question is: Why don't we do it? The answer is because those who control the media don't want the border secured, so they lie to the people and keep the truth from them.
    Then there is the SPLC that attacked me for reporting that Mexican gangs created the meth problem in America.
    These are the real criminals.
