The state of Texas has shut down its border with Mexico. They are going it alone, showing they will not be messed with!
Texas Lt. Governor, David Dewhurst, has been asking the federal government for help in defending its border, but he is now convinced no help is coming.
Yet, a government’s most basic duty is National Security!
He says, “This is an issue of National Security and States’ rights.”
He plans to defend his State against drug and sex traffickers. Why can’t the federal government protect its citizenry in the same way Texas is doing?
Texas is spending $5 million per month to protect its citizenry rights to border security. Texas will actually be using its tax dollars to help the people.
It has done the following to defend its border:
1. added more law enforcement officers,
2. purchased high-altitude spotter planes,
3. purchased six Department of Public Safety helicopters,
4. and six armoured gunboats to patrol the Rio Grande River.
“This is just unacceptable,” he said. “ We have a problem and everyone knows it except for the Obama administration and people in high levels of Border Patrol.” The Lt. Governor did not stop there: “Organized crime groups in Texas are contracting with Mexican cartels to be their enforcers. The cartels’ presence are in all of our major cities. Seven of the eight Mexican cartels operating in Texas are using our state as a staging area for their operations across the U.S.”
“Illegal immigration is one issue, and we all understand why people want to come here. I’m a strong believer in legal immigration, but not illegal immigration,” said the Lt. Governor. “We have young girls being trafficked as slaves for immoral purposes across our border and through our state. This cannot be allowed.”
