Puente encouraged people with information about the stolen material to report it but added: "don't open it." Somewhat shockingly, theft of radioactive material in Mexico is a somewhat of a common occurrence. Last year a container of radioactive substance used for industrial X-rays was also taken along with a car. Similar occurrences also happened in April 2015 and in July 2014. In December 2013, thieves – apparently unaware of the contents of their heist – stole a vehicle containing medical equipment with highly radioactive cobalt-60, a material that could be used to produce a “dirty bomb,” according to the IAEA, the UN’s nuclear watchdog.
Want another reason to build the border wall on Americas border with Mexico...Well that other reason is because the Mexican Government in the last four years has had radioactive material stolen in Mexico. America we definitely need our border secure when Mexico seems like they have a problem with keeping radioactive material secured.
Now this does raise a major alarm since ISIS is known for working with Mexican drug cartels, and Mexican drug cartels are even known for having camps for ISIS in the failed state of Mexico. This news of stolen radioactive material in Mexico also comes at a time when FEMA is preparing for a nuclear strike drill in New York City. The major issue with this is it just gives more support to President Trump to build Americas great wall, because the major issue here is that Mexican authorities don't seem to know how to protect radioactive material in the failed state of Mexico. Fully expect border security to increase ten fold, now that nine Mexican states are reporting stolen radioactive material.
