Mexico Arrests Alledged Killer of Consulate Employee.

Mexican police have arrested Jesus Ernesto "the Camel" Chavez, who they believe is the mastermind behind the March 13th murders of Lesley Enriquez who worked for the U.S. consulate in Ciudad Juarez, her husband, Arthur Redelfs and Jorge Ceniceros who was married to another consular employee. Enriquez, who was four months pregnant, accompanied her husband and baby daughter to a birthday party held at the consulate. As the three left the party in their white SUV, a Suburban began following them. At the same time, Ceniceros and his two children, ages 4 and 7, left the consulate in a white Honda Pilot. He was followed as well.

In the end, all three adults were gunned down in their vehicles. Ceniceros' children were wounded while Enriquez' daughter was unharmed.

According to news reports, "the Camel" claims to have been ordered by gang members living in the United States to arrange the killing. The gang members were angered because Enriquez was helping members of a rival gang obtain visas to travel to the United States. The killers were told that Enriquez would be in a white SUV; unsure of which white SUV she was riding in, the killers decided to kill the passengers of both vehicles.

Chavez' story has several holes in it. First of all, the U.S. consulate claims that Enriquez was not involved in the issuing of visas. Secondly, why would gang members need visas? Obviously, they would certainly know how to get into the United States illegally.
There is also speculation that the motive for the killings may have been because Arthur Redelfs was a guard in the El Paso jail.

Of course, we in the United States have no need to worry that such violence will spill over into our both Obama and Janet Napolitano tell us, the border has never been more secure.
