    HERMOSILLO, Mexico (AP) A massive gun battle between rival drug and migrant-trafficking gangs near the U.S. border left 21 people dead on Thursday, prosecutors said.

    The clash occurred in a sparsely populated area about 12 miles (20 kilometers) from the Arizona border a prime corridor for immigrant and drug smuggling.

    Sonora's Attorney General's Office said in a statement that nine people were captured by police at the scene of the shooting, six of whom had been wounded in the confrontation. Authorities at the scene found seven rifles.

    Officials did not say why the gunfight had broken out, but powerful and well-armed Mexican gangs often fight for control of smuggling routes into the United States.

    In a city on another part of the U.S. border, gunmen killed an assistant attorney general for Chihuahua state and one of her bodyguards.

    After being chased by armed assailants through the darkened streets of Ciudad Juarez, the vehicle carrying Sandra Salas Garcia and two bodyguards was riddled with bullets Wednesday night.

    Arturo Sandoval, a spokesman for the Attorney General's Office, said the second bodyguard was seriously wounded.

    Salas was responsible for evaluating the work of prosecutors and special investigations units in Chihuahua.

    Drug violence has killed more than 4,300 people in recent years in Ciudad Juarez, which borders El Paso, Texas.

    More than 23,000 people have been killed by drug violence since late 2006, when President Felipe Calderon began deploying thousands of troops and federal police to drug hot spots.

    Wait a minute, Obama just told us in his speech that border towns were safer than ever and the border was more secure than it has been in decades. I know he would never lie to us.

    Oh. I thought perhaps he was referring to the Texas Oklahoma border.

    Yep, and according to the Teleprompter, it's more secure than it was.

    The Twin Towers and the thousands that died that day wasn't bad enough or important enough for the American government, or the American people,to secure our borders. Don't expect a few hundred or a thousand more Americans killed by some Mexican gangs coming across our border today to make anymore difference than it did then, or since then. It's been discussed so much already, and been dismissed so many times with the same rhetoric that it's become useless. The people are to blame just as much as the government. Again, poetic justice, better get used to it.
    In America today, it's considered worse to judge evil than to do evil. Never let these Christophobic Liberal Progressive Purveyors of Infanticide & Homosexual Perversion who always manipulate truth to be hate speech set the terms in a debate.
