A 20-year-old college student who was hired as police chief of a Mexican border town has reportedly sought asylum in the United States.

Marisol Valles Garcia "received death threats from a criminal group that wanted to force her to work for them," the relative told AFP news service on Thursday, speaking on condition of anonymity. She "went to the United States along with two relatives and will seek asylum."

Valles Garcia, who has an infant son, became police chief in Praxedis G. Guerrero town — home to some 10,000 people — after two other job candidates dropped out following the killing of the mayor and his son. She was studying criminology in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico's most violent city.

However, town secretary Andres Morales said that Valles Garcia was expected back at work on Monday after taking some time off to deal with family matters.

"Right now, these are rumors," he told the El Paso Times.

Word of Valles Garcia's apparent departure comes after Erika Gandara, a female officer and the sole representative of the law in the border town of Guadalupe, was kidnapped in December . Her fate is unknown.

Doesn't it feel like sometimes, if you take a step back, you can see where about 85% of the stuff that's happening is going to end up?

Just glad she didn't get killed.

I hate to be a jerk at this point, because I do admire the lady, but....

If she gets asylum, won't that open the floodgates for pretty much everybody in Mexico to seek asylum based on threats from drug cartels?

Talk about seeing how things will turn out.

A really great gradeschool friend of mine is caught up in the middle of the warring in Mexico. He came to the US the legal way when we were in 5th grade and returned with his family to care for his grandpa in 8th grade. We taught him English and he taught us a little Spanish. He is still in Mexico and is attending a university and we have spent many hours talking on the phone about how bad it is becoming. Literally no lie twice a day he is approached to sell and run drugs by any of the Cartels because he has a US citizenship card and word of that got out.

He has the same high values i do though and turns them down. He has had his room ransacked, his car vandalized, people end friendships with him because its too "risky" etc.

He is coming here next month to stay for a week with me and my Family and to see his uncle who lives a short distance from my neighborhood and i am quite excited as you can imagine

LOL no. He might bring some Maracas and a few other cooler Mexican things for the Girls but that would be about it.
He and I share the same belief that there is no point of Drugs/alchomohols ingestion.

If we take Mexico over, destroy the drug cartels, make Mexico a US territory like Puerto Rico, we could make things much better... We would have a much smaller southern border... We would have more oil drillifying, we would slow down the mass exodus of illegals coming here, they would just stay there and live off us. Or not...

Seriously though, can't give her asylum because she was threatened by drug cartels. We would end up with every single Mexican cop and politician other than the cartels themselves.
