"Robberies, homicides, petty thefts, and carjackings have all increased over the last year across Mexico generally, with notable spikes in Tijuana and northern Baja California," the statement said. "Ciudad Juarez, Tijuana and Nogales are among the cities which have recently experienced public shootouts during daylight hours in shopping centers and other public venues. Criminals have followed and harassed U.S. citizens traveling in their vehicles in border areas including Nuevo Laredo, Matamoros, and Tijuana. The situation in Ciudad Juarez is of special concern." (Video: Alert Issued)
*************

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, worried about the spread of violence by Mexican drug cartels, said on Tuesday that he wants 1,000 troops to help guard the Texas-Mexico border.

"I don't care if they are military, National Guard or customs agents. We're very concerned that the federal government is not funding border security adequately. We must be ready for any contingency," he said a news conference in El Paso, which sits across the border from Juarez.

If we had kept our National Guard on the border with shoot to kill orders, this country's sovereignty would still be in tact.

I agree with Perry. Maybe 1000 isn't enough and maybe they should have been doing something all along. Truth of the matter is that things can't keep going the way they've been and we cant be afraid to protect our borders at the risk of being called "racist" or whatever.

If nothing else: the growing drug war SOB may be the 'tipping point' mandating shoot to kill orders for our Border Patrol as well as other LE agencies.

I agree 1000 isn't enough. As for the ethnocentric racists who invade this country but call us racist? I'm sure I can speak for the majority of Americans of all races when I say who gives a flying fluck what they call us. It's our country and we have the right to our safety and our sovereignty.

1,000 is not nearly enough -- haven't there been 6,000 drug cartel murders?

Texas has already spent $55 million on this and we are still in great danger.
