If you think Islamic terrorist groups like ISIS, al Qaeda, Taliban, Boko Haran, Hamas and other are bad enough, take a good look at some of the Mexican drug cartels operating just south of our border. Recently, a battle between two of the cartels have left at least 15 dead. In the past, they have accounted for the murder of hundreds of Mexican nationals, as well as Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. A major question facing President Trump is if he can build the border fence and secure our border in time to prevent the further bloodshed at the hands of the drug cartels, here in the US.
The United States, helmed by President Donald J. Trump, cannot bolster security on our southern border quick enough.
While Trump’s grand plan for a “big, beautiful” wall on our border with Mexico has been stymied by liberal congressmen and noncommittal republicans alike, a war has been raging that threatens the sanctity of American border states. You see, in Mexico, drug cartels are some of the most powerful entities in existence. Their turf wars and ability to corrupt entire local governments has given them the sort of power that Al Pacino’s “Scarface” character could only dream about. With thousands of bodies already under their belt, the vicious fighting of the Mexican drug wars is only gaining intensity.
Now, as this violence begins to creep nearer to the U.S. border, many Americans have taken notice and are demanding action…
I still say that President Trump should have our military construction units build the border fence. This would save millions of dollars in labor costs. Then Trump needs to station US military forces along the entire border and provide them with all of the equipment necessary to secure the border on land, underground and in the air. It’s about time our military protects America, just like they’ve been protecting other nations.
