    Governor says area 'devastated' by human and drug smuggling.

    (CNN) -- New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson declared a state of emergency Friday in four counties along the Mexican border that he said have been "devastated" by crimes such as the smuggling of drugs and illegal immigrants.

    The declaration said the region "has been devastated by the ravages and terror of human smuggling, drug smuggling, kidnapping, murder, destruction of property and the death of livestock. ...

    "[It] is in an extreme state of disrepair and is inadequately funded or safeguarded to protect the lives and property of New Mexican citizens."

    This is good news! Nothing can be done on this problem without the active help of the Democrat Party. If this were a GOP governor, he would be labelled racist, wouldn't he?

    CMG,
    Richardson is a fairly conservative Democrat. Seems to be respected by many in both parties. And yes, he will get nailed with the racist tag. That word somehow replaces logic in these discussions.
