Finally the lame-stream media is beginning to discuss the war raging among the human/drug smuggling crime cartels in Mexico who are vying for control of the brutal, lucrative trade.
Cartel violence has reached unprecedented levels along the U.S.-Mexico border, and is fostering a pandemic of home invasions, kidnappings and murders throughout the United States of America.
“President Obama inherited three wars, the most critical right here at home along our southern and northern national boundaries. Our southern border presents a full-blown national security crisis, and a serious domestic threat to public safety, that has affected every community within a day’s drive of the Mexico line. Mr. Obama better not tell the imperiled American people we don’t have enough money or manpower, or it is not a priority, to secure our borders. And John McCain should be drawing up battle plans to protect U.S. citizens by sending the U.S. Marines to the border instead of quibbling over the cost of a single helicopter named Marine One,”
“Time for stop-gap measures or waiting for other nations to mend their ways has run out. Mexico’s president Calderon and his government will also need much more than a half billion of our tax dollars (Meridia Plan) to battle international terrorist organizations that control almost every city throughout Mexico. Our National Guard and Marines must be deployed to protect American interests, including lives and property, along our border.”
The same international smuggling operations shooting it out at the border have active organized criminal cells in over 195 U.S. cities, according to a recent Department of Justice report.
Minutemen stationed along the border from Texas to California and Washington to New York State continued to report an egregious lack of U.S. border security and high vulnerability to incursion, facilitated by criminal networks of outposts dotting the high ground along the entire border. Minuteman volunteers have scoured the trails and have identified drug cartel and smuggler’s outposts at high elevations all along the border in California and Arizona.
It will take an immediate deployment of 8,000 National Guard and special ops personnel to contain the extremely violent and terroristic international crime organizations that control the mountainous passages of the U.S./Mexico border.
For over 7 years, our organization have been at the forefront of helping secure the United States borders and coastal boundaries against the unlawful entry of individuals, contraband and even foreign military in an all-volunteer effort to protect law-abiding American citizens, and uphold the rule of law.
I have long argued publicly against the policies advocated by renowned so-called border security tough guys who grandstand on feeble proposals and media-driven border security “initiatives.” That list of the feeble and the failed is topped by Senator John McCain and former Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, recently appointed as U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security. The frightening reality is that drug and human smuggling is unquestionably one of the most pressing security issues facing our nation, and its effects have been devastating to the well-being of American citizens in countless communities across the country.
More than 8,000 individuals were killed in Mexico due to drug related violence in the last two years alone; the Mexican drug cartels reportedly supply illegal drugs to their gang member affiliates in at least 230 U.S. cities; and 240 cartel-related kidnappings occurred last year alone in Phoenix, Arizona. The statistics of crisis do not lie.
Americans along the border have long locked and loaded – thanks to people like John McCain it is now become part of our culture. People who live along our southern border have been waiting for leadership who will respond to the critical implications of not protecting the rights of private property owners. Or, maybe they do, and this is the way they like it.
If the people’s government does not respond soon, the government of the people and by the people will respond and the Minutemen organization does not want to be in the way when Americans begin defending American private property. All we can do is get out of the way and say, I told you so.
