The Smoking Non-Gun Emerges

Views

Remember the Insta-Urban Legend a few weeks ago about how paramilitaries from one of the major Mexican drug cartels stormed across the US-Mexico border and seized two ranches near Laredo, Texas? Well, the anti-immigrant crazies who ginned up the story were momentarily tripped up by the complete lack of evidence that any of it had ever happened. But now they’re back with smoking-gun non-evidence, no matter what local law enforcement says.

Our Eric Lach talks to the exasperated Public Affairs officer at the Laredo PD as he tries to prove that he’s not actually trying to cover up the Mexican drug gang invasion, as they take over America, one isolated ranch at a time.
