Do you think its time to send Military to the Mexico border? Border drug wars threaten United States ?
Do we need the military and a big eighty foot deep and one hundred feet high fence? This is dangerous and they do means us harm .They have got weapons, high-tech radios, computers, cell phones, Global Positioning Systems, spotters, and can react faster than we're able to, Mr. Moran said. And they've no hesitancy to attack the agents on the line, with anything from attack rifles and improvised Molotov cocktails to rocks, concrete slabs and bottles. There are so many agent 'rockings' that few are even reported anymore. If we wrote them all up, that's all we would be doing.
United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the investigative arm of Homeland Security, said in a report this year that the drug gangs were becoming increasingly ruthless against rivals, and also were targeting federal, state and local law enforcement. ICE said violence on the border has been rising dramatically over the past 3 years in what it called an unprecedented surge.
During a Jan raid on a gang operation in Laredo, TX , an ICE-led task force of federal agents seized 2 completed improvised explosive devices, materials for making thirty three more devices, 300 primers, 1,280 rounds of ammunition, 5 grenades, nine pipes with end caps, twenty six grenade triggers (14 with fuses and primers attached), thirty one grenade spoons, forty grenade pins, nineteen black powder casings, a silencer and cash.
