The U.S. is under attack on our homeland. Mexico is currently in the state of a complete collapse. Their Government is failling and chaos is reining supreme. The Drug Cartels have bought the Mexican Army and are making regular incursions across the border into the U.S. and are killing anyone and everyone in their path, including law enforcement officers.
The City with the second most kidnappings in the world is Phoenix Arizona, only being beat out by Mexico City. If drug cartels continue to terrorize Mexico, Texas officials are planning for the worst-case scenario: How to respond if violence spills over the border and what to do if thousands of Mexicans seek refuge in the United States.
In EL PAS0 Police are investigating threats against Juárez Mayor Jose Reyes Ferriz, who moved his family to El Paso for safety, the Mayor of a Mexican City has moved to the US for Safety Reasons.
“We received information that the Juárez mayor lives in El Paso, and that possibly they were going to come to El Paso to get him,” Carrillo El Paso police Cheif said. “He has not asked us for our help, but it’s our duty to protect any resident of our city who may be under threat.”
FBI agents in El Paso had warned the Mayorabout the cartel’s plans to cross the Border to come assasinate him. AMexican state policewoman was charged and imprisoned in the plot.
Violence from Mexican drug cartels has spilled over into Texas, state Homeland Security Director Steve McCraw said Monday.
“Yes, absolutely it has occurred; there’s no question about it,” McCraw said after a hearing before the House Committee on Border and International Affairs.
McCraw answered lawmakers’ questions about Gov. Rick Perry’s request for another $135 million for border security operations on the same day Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott asked lawmakers for a new tool to help bring down transnational gangs that threaten border communities.
The situation at our Southern Border has become completly out of control. Every day bodies are left there and Mexican Military vehicles protect drug runners.
We need to station troops on our Border with orders to shoot to kill. Instead of the “there is no problem” attitude of both this and the last administration.
