(National Sentinel) Border Security: All of the Left-wing Democrats who still say President Donald J. Trump’s plan to construct a border wall along the length of the U.S.-Mexico border should really shut their mouths and go spend a couple weeks actually on the border – preferably in Texas.
There, they will learn exactly why the wall is so necessary: There is a war on with Mexico-based drug cartels who are now up-armoring vehicles in order to get their product into the U.S.
As reported by Breitbart News:
Recently, Tamaulipas State Police officers seized a large truck outfitted with thick armor plating for firefights. The vehicles are commonly called “Mounstros” or monsters. According to information provided to Breitbart Texas by the Tamaulipas government, police officers were patrolling the rural areas near Camargo, Tamaulipas, when they came across an abandoned warehouse. Camargo is immediately south of Rio Grande City, Texas.
When authorities inspected the warehouse they found a truck covered in armor plating as a makeshift combat vehicle. The truck had Texas license plates. It remains unclear if the vehicle was previously stolen.
As Breitbart Texas reported, rival factions of the Gulf Cartel have gone to war for this region’s lucrative drug territories. The fighting spread terror through Reynosa as convoys of gunmen roamed the streets clashing with rivals. Official figures point to 20 individuals killed, while six were injured in the ongoing violence. Authorities seized armored vehicles, SUVs, grenades, machine guns, and other weapons tied to the violence.
Violence has always been prevalent along the U.S.-Mexico border, but it is increasing – as cartels invest in ever-more-deadly weaponry to combat more heavily armed police and military units sent in to interdict them and their cargo.
If ever there was a need for a legitimate border wall – in the age of international terrorism and drug-smuggling – it is now. Trump is exactly right in seeking one
Too bad not enough congressional members of his own party agree.
