Mexican cartels are "setting up shop directly in Massachusetts and New Hampshire," and law enforcement is warning residents to brace for a "flood [in] the local narcotics market" and "a spike in street crime" as reported by the Boston Herald:
"We're not seeing the second or third middle man anymore. We're seeing the direct contact with Mexico," said Bruce Foucart, agent in charge of the U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement's investigations unit in Boston. "Their tentacles are getting stronger and spreading out."
Of course, under President Obama -- a self-admitted former blow user himself -- secure borders really aren't that important anymore.
