Vultures Row: Austin, We Have a Problem

Austin, We Have a Problem

One of the undeniable responsibilities of government is to protect its citizens and its territory from invasion.  Texas is being invaded by Mexico.  This is not an article about illegal immigration, which is a topic of another post.  This is about elements of the Mexican army actually crossed the border to assist criminals move drugs into the United States.  

“Texas law enforcement officers faced off with men dressed as Mexican Army soldiers and apparent drug suspects near the U.S.-Mexican border Tuesday, after three SUVs attempted to flee state authorities, officials said.

The U.S. officials saw what appeared to be a Mexican military Humvee help one of the SUVs when it got stuck in the river, he said.

When that didn't work, a group of men dressed in civilian clothes started unloading what appeared to be bundles of marijuana from the SUV, and the stuck vehicle was then torched, he said. A second SUV had a flat tire and was left behind in the United States and its occupant ran across the border.”

What is even more alarming is the fact that this has been allowed to go on for so long.  More than 200 incidents of this type have been documented with no real response by State or Federal authorities.  

"It's been so bred into everyone not to start an international incident with Mexico that it's been going on for years," Chief Deputy Mike Doyal of the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Department said. "When you're up against mounted machine guns, what can you do? Who wants to pull the trigger first? Certainly not us."

It is not just another isolated incident as Arvin West the Hudspeth County Sheriff, said he is certain that Mexican authorities know who was involved.  His officers were involved in a similar incident last year

A newspaper report detailing the number and severity of the breaches of our national sovereignty was dismissed by Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, who said the report was overblown and most of the incursions were just mistakes.

The Question to Governor Perry is what is being done about it?  A call to his office this morning to ascertain the answer ended up in a recorded message and a full voice mail box.  

As previously posted Perry has claimed he will “Secure the border”, but that was in October and here we are still facing this huge issue.

Governor Perry, when will you secure our border and protect our children from drugs?
