Keep Your Eyes on the Tex-Mex Border

Remember Fast and Furious and this administration's irresponsible and treacherous arming of the Mexican drug cartels who appear to be using the weapons to fire on the U.S. Border Patrol. Thanks, President Obama, for putting our brave agents at risk. 

Texas Sending 1,000 Guardsmen to the Border
Texas Gov. Rick Perry Monday announced the deployment of 1,000 National Guard troops to the border following an incident in which members of Mexican drug cartels allegedly fired shots from a .50-caliber machine gun from the Mexican side of the border into Texas, sending U.S. Border Patrol guards scurrying for cover....
In an interview with WND, William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, said he believed Perry’s decision was motivated not only by the gunfire at the border but by “the historic wave of protests across the country this weekend, which included more than 40 locations in Texas alone.” “My concern, however, is that it will do no good to send National Guardsmen to the border if (human traffickers) are still shipping and smuggling illegals into the U.S.,” Gheen said. 
“We need the National Guard to be given authority to arrest and detain near the border so they can be sent back.”...

Gheen said the guardsmen “should be placed in front of our Border Patrol, not behind, and they should have guns with live ammunition in them and they should be free to do whatever they need to do to defend this nation as the Constitution requires.”
Another question that arises from the border clash with drug cartel members Friday is where did the high-caliber weapons come from? 
Among the weapons shipped into Mexico by the Obama administration during its “Fast and Furious” operation were .50-caliber Barrett machine guns and AK-47 assault rifles.
Gheen noted that at least five different agencies, with taxpayer funds, bought thousands of assault weapons that were transported to the cartels. 
“Our Border Patrol could definitely come under fire from these weapons that were part of Obama’s Fast and Furious efforts,” he said.
This president has put millions of Americans at risk both domestically and abroad. His incoherent foreign and domestic policies have left us vulnerable to terrorism both at home and abroad. Not only that, increasingly citizens are being exposed to deadly diseases brought in by illegal immigrants who are being shipped on public transportation all over the country making little communities everywhere vulnerable. How many of the hundreds of thousands of children coming into the U.S. have basic immunizations? How many have parasites that will spread like wildfire through the public schools? We haven't seen the worst that's coming because of Obama's determination to turn this country into a socialist banana republic.
