A Stoos Views Hugh Betcha Exclusive
It was the largest pot bust ever—a drug interdiction unparalleled in the history of Mexico. The Mexican police announced that its agents had intercepted a drug shipment of 134 tons of marijuana near Tijuana, presumably headed for the United States. The government announced that all 134 tons would be disposed of by burning the stash in a ceremony at a nearby army base. And Hugh Betcha, Chief of the International News Desk of the Stoos Views media conglomerate was there.
At the request of the President of Mexico, who called Hugh at his office in beautiful downtown Wynstone, South Dakota—where the air is clean, the crime rate low, the people are friendly, and the folks vote red—the reporter flew to Tijuana to witness the historic event. It would, however, prove to be anything but a normal news day.
President Barack Hussein Obama, in a determination letter to Congress, has announced that he will allow an additional 80,000 immigrants – – mostly from Islamic countries – – to resettle in the United States during fiscal year 2011.
Mr. Obama says that the increase in Muslim immigrants “is justified by humanitarian concerns or is otherwise in the national interest.”
